    I will try it as soon as I can put the ingredients together.
    The funny part is that I researched Ted's Dark Flake and found a pipe tobacco shop online called Ted's Pipe Shop located in Tulsa, OK. They've been in business for 50 some odd years and it sounds like they have some interesting blends. But of course no Ted's Dark Flake.

    McClelland 5105 (Stoved Virginia) + 5100 (Red Cake) = Tastes a lot like Hamborger Veermaster to me. The flavors seem to cancel each other's sweetness out and produce something new.

    I bought some 5105 from a local tobacconist. I like stoved VA's. I loved Blackwoods Flake, and still need to try a tin of Dark Star. The 5105 was a little too sweet and bland straight, but made for a FANTASTIC mixing tobacco to sprinkle in experimentally with other blends.
