Any particular tobacco you tend to favor over others.

For me it is Three Sails . . . while I have an ample cellar I tend to smoke this tobacco more than others. I also find it plays well to add to or thin down other tobaccos. Price is also very favorable.

Curious about yours . . .

Too many to list, but I would put C&D's Pegasus at the top of the list.

I go with SWR for my top tobacco, the only tobacco I smoked for years and years. It's funny though that I never smoke it much anymore. I'm a cheap guy on a fixed income and that figures into what I smoke, Low Country and Grand Croupier for instance. The old "Pensioner's Blends" as they called them back in the Old Country.

Wessex burley slice is the desert island tobacco for me. Pegasus is a very close second

I get stuck on a blend for a few weeks then move on. Fickle taste I guess. If I listed a couple now in a month’s time I’d be on to something else.

I like my tobacco affordable and bought by the pound. As a rule, black cavendish is too mild for me to enjoy. I don't mind a little aero flavor, but it does not take much for my palate.

Honorable mentions go to to SPRT, Double Down and LC VaBur.

I have to say that most anything by D&R falls in this category.

Bayou Morning for me. Old Joe Krantz has has worked its way into the mix also. I’m a cheap SOB so bulk pricing is a must. Probably 2/3 of the bowls I smoke.

My #1 is constantly changing. This is a good thing.

At present, it is MaBaren Scottish Blend.
