While praying every day for some McConnell's Scottish Cake to wash ashore with a case of good bourbon and a beautiful bikini clad island girl...........not necessarily in that order.

These are always tough questions. Really I could be happy with anything that is a 3 or better on my TR reviews. If I were on a desert island, I would be happy to have a pipe and 500 tubs of Carter Hall or a couple of pallets of cases of Picayune. Double Down would work just fine.

I will say I have acquired a taste for Kendal Kentucky recently. The Runowski trifecta - Pegasus, Haunted Bookshop and OJK are always good. So many choices...

Why cant it be a Dessert Island ... or fantasy island ... heck , the island of doctor Moreau ? A desert island .. ok ..

It would have to be at least this big ..

I mean if it were like two palm trees and a couple rocks .. I cant even go there in my mind

Now , that above island looks kinda sexy ... I could probably live there and be pretty damn comfortable . So , a comfortable island like that . Ive re " thunk " this since teh last time I did a thread like this ...

Current production of course ...

Life would be incomplete without a Burley ... It would be Wessex Burley Slice , no doubt

Life would be incomplete without an aromatic , and this is a very difficult one to decide on because there are so many excellent aromatics , but I'd want China Black Fire Cured

So , if it were just three , Im stuck with ... do I choose an English style , a Vaper a vabur a Vaperlatburaro !?!?!?! Id want Germains Royal Jersey Perique , 1820 or MB Latakia bend ... but they arent really available [ sadly ] ..... It would have to be a change of pace from the other two , which means it could be a number of blends . Today , it would be Mac Baren Solent

This is always a difficult one... Definitely Morley's Best, I smoke more of that than anything else. I have a number in the high teens of jarred "rotation" tobacco blends, and I only ever get 1-2 bowls a day, but it's Morley's at least twice a week. When I can get back to my 5-6 bowl a day stride, it will probably jump to the same "at least once daily" that it was. Beyond that, probably FVF (or BBF) for a change-up. The third slot is difficult... Maybe ODF? Maybe Dreams of Kadath (though I'm not quite through a tin, and I like it now, but after a pound or so, who knows, right?) Maybe Red Rapparee? Maybe Oriental Silk? Nah, I can't pick a third unless it's followed by 4, 5, 6, and maybe 7. Oh, well...

I am smoking Morley's Best now as I read this.

There are a number of variants on the C&D burley base that I like a lot. Morley's Best, Epiphany, and Big-n-Burley are in that category.

Yeah, those three are really great blends. Morleys Best is my sleeper. I don't keep it in pounds, but I really enjoy every bowl I smoke.

Royal Jersey Perique is also a funky blend I wish I could smoke all day, every day. I would tire of it eventually, but I don't think It'd be anytime soon.
