Mine is regular Frog Morton.
When I run out of what I have I am not sure what to try.
Any suggestions? Whats your favorite?

Balkan Sobranie for discontinued old classics. It really was everything that was ever said of it.

GLP Raven's Wing for modern discontinued classic.

For available today, GH Balkan Mixture would be my number one. After that, depending on mood I may reach for SG Commonwealth or Esoterica Penzance.

GH Balkan Mixture is like the greatest secret in pipe smoking as far as English blends go. Let's keep it on the QT, it's always available.

I dont see Balkan's as English's. They are two different things to me. I have a favorite Balkan I can get any time.
Ever try Boswells Northwoods? I hear thats a good one.

GLP Gaslight or Lancer Slices to get my Lat fix, Peterson Wild Atlantic for a slightly sweeter English, and Rattray's Red Rapparee for pretty much any time at all. Some other Englishes that are good and cheap are Sutliff 965 Match and Heavy English, and Comoy's Cask 11. Oh.. and Peterson Old Dublin.. ok.. so I will pretty much smoke anything :D

Wild Atlantic, to me, is a sleeper. I don't know if it's because it's in a pouch or what, but it doesn't get talked about much and it's a shame because it's good stuff. Lancer Slices are probably my favorite Lat blend of all time, but it can be pretty hard to find and when it does come in stock it sells out fast.

Sadly, At the moment my cellar is nearly empty. The only English I have more than an ounce of right now is Sutliff 965 Match.

HH Vintage Syrian was easily my favorite. It has been replaced with something else (don't remember the name), and I have not tried the new one yet.
