I've been wanting to learn more about what parts of a blend make up it's tastes.. Quite often i find myself wanting to describe a certain aspect of a blend and i have to use sentences like "Yeah, it has a bit of that flavour that the other tobacco - You know the one i told you about before - had but also a bit of this other taste that dominated the tobacco i sent you a sample of mid last week.. " etc. It just seems rather inefficient So.. perhaps some of you old farts could educate this young whippersnapper? I realize this can get complicated fast as there are so many different tobaccos and ways to cure and so on, but how about some basics at first, then move on? How does one identify Burley, Virginia, Perique, Whats the differences between Syrian and Cyprian latakia and whats a Cavendish anyways (I know it's a curing method, but whats it made of and how does it taste)? Also, any recomendations on blends that show off a certain tobacco especially well would be much apprechiated. I could ofcourse order some blending tobaccos from somewhere - i see Cornell & Diehl sell them -, but it would get rather costly and those probably aren't especially pleasant to smoke on their own.
