    4 or 5 years ago I experimented with blending, even did some stoving and pressing. Most of it was pretty bad, I did stumble onto something that I liked.

    2 parts Pirate Kake
    3 parts Carter Hall

    Pirate Carter!

    At present jacking around with blending a stoved black virginia with black cavendish (no casing or topping) and perique. Ratio is 40% BC, 40% Stoved Va and 20% perique. Still need to work on the ratios as the sweetness is just a tad on the cloying side for me

    Another one I enjoy:
    Equal parts of:
    Carter Hall & McCranies Red Ribbon.
    To add some spice to it:
    Add a pinch of REAL Perique to taste or your liking.

    My recipe is a strict secret, formulated by great grandad Ted at Rork's Drift in 1879 and passed to just one member of each generation!.

    About 6 months ago I decided that I was tired of paying the high cost of the tobacco I use for my primary daily smoke (McC 2015 plus 20% perique) so I started buying whole leaf American & Canadian flue cured Virginias and light & dark fire cured Virginias.

    I shred them to a wide shag and blend them: 5.5oz each of flue cured Virginias + .5oz each of the fire cured + 4oz perique. I haven't used my Percy Martin Perique in any blends yet but I plan to soon. I stopped using burly and I may stop using the fire cured, they really come through strong. I started smoking some as soon as it was blended and put about 2 lbs. in a jar (which I smoke from) to try to get some age on it. I also vacuum sealed about 3 lbs.

    To me it smokes really good as is, without age. After I finish the jar I will open one of the vacuum sealed packs and hope it mellows like I want it to.

    I still have 10 lbs. of whole leaf American & Canadian flue cured Virginias I haven't shredded yet that I need to start on.

    I assume the whole leaf Perique is Percy Martin Perique?

    I found one that is absolutely delicious to me. Equal parts of Wessex Brigade Campaign Dark, Pirate Kake, and Kendal Kentucky. I wish I could find a blend like it in bulk. Does anyone know of a good bulk replacement for the Wessex portion?

    Next go round, I think I'll replace Kendal Kentucky with Old Dark Fired.

    Got a couple of personal blend. First there is Pure Perique - Crowley Style - just blending perique dowsed with just enough rum to make it wet, left to soak for 12 hours and then dried out, not sure if it's a blend so much as an extreme aromatic. The other is a 50/50 split of pure latakia and pure perique that tastes strangely of smoked, stewed plums.

    60% Dunhill Royal yacht
    40% Peter Stokkebye Natural Dutch cavendish

    Royal Dutch Cavendish.

    Also pretty good going a bit higher on the Royal Yacht. Any higher on the Cavendish and that's all it tastes like.
