I'm gonna make an order tomorrow for a few tins... Can you guys give me some recommendations for some really mild hitting blends ? I only smoke once or twice a month, so I don't need a nicotine rush from hell... stops me from enjoying the smoke.
I have'nt tried a non-aromatic yet, so I'd like to try like an English style. I'd still like some sweet flavor though... if that exists in a non-aromatic.
Thanks !

Hmmm.... the Haddo's delight seems to be a very strong blend by it's reviews, full of perique and burly. Think I'll pass on that, but the Old Church sounds good.

I'm pretty sensitive to nicotine too. I have to be careful with new blends until I get a feel for them, and keep it limited to small bowls with stronger ones I know.

+1 McClelland 5100, very pleasing, thrifty and tasty.
Lane 1Q and RLP-6 are both inexpensive but tasty aromatics, mild enough for me, and not goopy.
Orlik Golden Sliced is a nice mild flake.
Dunhill Flake (aka GAF) is mild enough for me.
McBaren Navy Flake, also very nice. I have to be a little careful with this one. Smokes like a dream though.

English-ish blends:
All the Frog Mortons are pretty mild, and very tasty (my favorite English blends, love On The Town).
Presbyterian Mixture and Balkan Sasieni were both very good, solid flavor, but mild enough.
Squadron Leader was fine for me.
Black Mallory by Rattray was fine and mild enough too.

I definitely second the suggestion of any of the Frog Morton series smokes. Also, Mac Baren Mixture Scottish blend and Macbaren Golden Extra are really great smokes.

Yeah, the Haddo's Delight might be a little stronger than what you are after. The Old Church is definitely a mild smoke, IMO, however it is an aro. Another McClelland that you might be interested is called English Woods, which as you can imagine is a English blend yet still pretty sweet. Not sure if there are any reviews on it out there though. McClelland Ashton Revival "Old Dog" might also fit the bill.

I guess I need to broaden my horizon and stop buying so much of their tobacco!
