Something that was said in the SPRT thread that Fr_Tom posted got me sort of thinking.. What blends do you always keep on hand? I am talking the staples that you always re-buy because they are constantly in rotation, or are a good budget smoke. I've found a few blends that I really liked by seeing what others smoke, so I thought this was a good opportunity.

Mine are:
Prince Albert
Carter Hall
PS Amsterdam
John Bull

Depending on how SPRT goes, that might be added to the mix. I have yet to find anything Virginia forward to keep in my staple rotation, but I am always open to it.

Really curious to see what you guys keep in stock.

That Chocolate Manhood you sent me was really good.

As far as "budget" stuff goes.
Heine's Blend
Mixture 79

Doesn't have to just be budget.. anything you always have to have on hand because you smoke it often. That was kind of the gist I was going for.

Might add to it but with no thought off the top of my head

CH
PA
SWRA
SPRT
Perique, I add it to stuff. Try Half and Half or BLWB cut with it.
Anniversary Kake
Sutliff 507
Newminster SNF and SRS
Grasmere
Ennerdale
Coniston
3P's was but it seems to be gone and I'm left with but a few plugs
Condor was for the Irish stuff but I'm down to one plug and a couple pouches, still feeling out the Polish stuff now and again until I'm satisfied enough with it to purchase any significant amount

There are plenty others I'd like to keep stocked but working around a budget and getting to put back anything I enjoy is more than good.

Grasmere, Ennerdale, Coniston, Lakeland et al are a realm I need to explore. Closest I have come to Lakeland is St. Bruno, which I really like a lot, so it'd make sense to gateway into the hard stuff. :)
