    I've been trying out a few different blends here and there and although we don't have a huge selection here I have found Lat' and I aren't good stable mates.

    I seem to prefer mostly aro's of varying levels, Mellow mack, Erinmore mixture and Dr Pat's Irish mixture are just 3 on my list of clear favourites for a while now. If anyone else knows of some great baccy's out there not containing latakia at all I sure would like to hear about it so I can continue with my list of baccy searching.

    Cheers everyone and happy bowls to you all...

    Sorry to hear you and lat don't get along.

    One tobacco I'd strongly recommend is Macbaren's Mixture Scottish Blend. I've really been enjoying this one. To me, it's a mild aromatic with lot's of good tobacco flavor as well. It's relatively easy to get and not as expensive as some ($28 for a 16 oz bag at P & C).

    Dunhill Royal Yacht. Satisfies on all levels. It's a Virginia, with enough topping (black currant) to almost be considered an aromatic, but not quite. And it has a decent sized dose of nicotine.

    MacBaren makes some great aromatics, from mildly aromatic to super sweet aromatics.
    Another brand to check out is Peter Stokkebye, they have a great variety, the prices are competitive, and quality is usually good.
