a competition for you more experienced guys. from the site: Let’s play a little game of what if. What if you had access to virtually every blending component available to anyone? What if you could take those components and make your own Holy Grail blend? What if a retailer like PipesandCigars.com took your recipe and offered it to everyone? What if you had the chance to be rewarded for your efforts? What would you have? You’d have The Fusion Lab my friend. That’s right; an entire segment of pipe tobaccos developed by YOU the end user! What’s even better is you’ve got P&C in your corner to assist in the process. http://pipesandcigars.com/fulabovandgu.html http://pipesandcigars.com/fusionlab.html the coolest part is they will make your blend available for sale and "The blender of the most popular blend will win an all expenses paid trip to Richmond, Virginia for a weekend with Russ and a full day at the world’s largest manufacturer of pipe tobacco. The Altadis Pipe Tobacco world headquarters."
