So there are plenty of threads asking about substitute or stand-in blends for Penzance, Full Virginia Flake, probably the Dunhills (from when they were out of production for a time) and so on...but I can't find much on a substitute for Kingfisher. Now I've got about 1/3 of an open tin of the stuff, and while I don't smoke it often it is a favored blend of mine. I've also got a well-aged sealed tin which I hope to hang on to for a few years before opening. What I know is that this is a rich but dry (as in, not very sweet) blend of burley, Virginia, and perique. I'm not a perique lover and only smoke a few blends which use it, but from what I can tell there isn't a substantial quantity in this blend as it is not particularly spicy. I find it to be burley-dominated, or if there is a heftier portion of VA in it than I suspect, that VA leaf is not nearly as sweet as some. The flavor, to me, is primarily cocoa, earth, a little nuttiness, and just a hint of spice. I know there are plenty of mixtures of burley, Virginia, and perique out there, but I know they all have their own unique taste and are frequently designed to bring the VA to the front and often have a sweet topping to them (as with Exhausted Rooster, another favorite of mine which is VA dominant and quite sweet, bordering on being an aromatic) What blends are out there that you find come closest to the flavor of Kingfisher? I'm not necessarily looking for something which is a dead ringer, but hoping to find something with some decent similarities in both flavor and strength. I enjoy Kingfisher's crumble cake presentation, but the cut is unimportant to me. Well?
