    Here is my wish list (so far).
    I know...just get them all!
    These are a few I have read a few of you rave about.
    Feel free to suggest others too.
    At the end, I will list what I have so far:

    Wish List (in no special order):
    OGS (Orlik Golden Slices)
    Escudo Navy Flake (Deluxe)
    Mac Baren's Navy Flake

    Here is what I have:
    Sam Gawith FVF
    Peterson's University Flake
    Cornell & Diehl Opening Night
    McClelland Red Cake 5100
    Erinmore Flake
    Frog Morton
    Peterson's De Luxe Mixture
    Ashton's Smooth Sailing
    *Frog Morton On The Town arriving any day

    I like them all so far!

    I really should (and am) start saving for new pipes since I only have 2 (Jobey and MM cob)

    Dude...your cellar is impressive. My advice? Skip the TAD and go for PAD.

    Sorry, realized that that doesnt explain much. I mean, you have a good and diverse selection of blends at hand already...a new tobacco expedition won't be as rewarding, I believe, as a new pipe could be...in so far as a quality pipe to sample your diverse collection. Get a pipe or three to keep the genres of blends straight and you'll have a better chance of appreciating what you already have. My opinion. (Heck, get a few cobs on the cheap, even...)

    With as diverse a flavor profile as you have, Ming, I agree with yinyang here. It's time to get a few more pipes fired up so that your Golden Sliced doesn't taste like Frog Morton. In terms of really appreciating blends, you just can't do it with one or two pipes. Cherry latakia Navy Flake is just not Navy Flake.

    But, since you asked, I'd say make an effort to try Presbyterian Mixture (Solomon) or Legends (McClelland). Any of the roll cakes from Mac Baren - Roll Cake, Club Blend, Dark Twist - they're wicked.

    Do TAD & PAD!

    Get what you want of the three you have on your want list. My rec of those three is MacB NF but the other two should be had soon after....they're all "standards" in this wonderful hobby!

    while you're at it, like Sas said the three MacB roll cake typez are Wicked GOOD!:) IMO

    Forgot to add the PAD part:

    You know what I'm gonna say........get some cobz! For the price of a tin, you can get 2-3 cobz and give your two existing pipez a nice well deserved rest.

    I'm in the same boat. I have 24 tobacco blends and 9 pipes. This year was TAD... next year is PAD. Except for maybe a couple of the blends Sas just mentioned above. :whistle:
