So is anyone aware of any? I'm a pretty big fan of Plumcake, but it's a touch too "Danish" for me. American blends tend to be more robust, maybe natural is the right word... & not cased as often. I've tried C&D's Black Frigate, but that's a Royal Navy blend if you get my meaning. Anything can really qualify as a navy blend, but Black Frigate is an english blend w. a naturally sweet touch. I'm looking for something that's American that smells & tastes as close to Plumcake as possible. I've not tried G.L. Pease "Sextant", but I wonder if it's not similar to SG Navy. Plumcake is cased. Gurgles. It's my only tobacco that gurgles on a dry day & the rest of mine don't gurgle on a humid day! Anyhow, I've got 2 more cans cellared of Plumcake, but would LOVE to have an encounter w. its American counterpart. That's my quest....because I've nothing else to seek. I'm content & happy & have nothing else to do. As I smoke the plumcake, I always wonder, "Is there an American version of this stuff?" My tobaccos are G.L. Pease Various blends), C&D (Black Frigate & Blockade Runner), & the Kansas City Pipe Club (Boston 1776 & Nocturne). Then there's plumcake. My 1 & only foreigner, LOL! I enjoy brands from all over, but over the years, I've developed a taste for the natural & robust flavors of the American blending / palate. I may revisit some of the imported favorites, but for now, I think I'm very pleased with where I'm at. I know I'll always have an import somewhere because I love mixing MacBaren's Virginia No. 1 with Turkish & Burley! It's not about being strictly American on the tobacco shelf, it's about seeing if something exists, lol!!! If not, I will be attached to Plumcake for the remainder of my days! I would be more than ok w. that, LOL!!! I'm just curious if a blend exists with the same flavoring, sans the casing, Plumcake is as sweet as I'll ever get, but I enjoy it immensely. Thanks all!!!
