I've tried Royal Yacht but wasn't THAT impressed with the "flavor" but the nic hit definitely satisfied that occasional craving. I'm interested in the choices of those more seasoned than I regarding tobaccos that you consider to have a strong nicotine content with great flavor...thanks!

Yep, OJK is a good one and so is another C&D tobacco, Big-n-Burley. Pretty strong nicotine wise.

I am a big fan of these two. In terms of the flavor, it depends on what you like. I like Orientals and perique. I am a fan of DFK. You find combinations of these that are quite good. Picayune is smoke I like. The various ropes are a little strong in the nicotine dept. for some people but very tasty. ODF is great smoke you might like to try. Kendal Kentucky is very good.

I have to agree with Fr_Tom. I conclude that HH ODF and Kendal Kentucky are pretty heavy in nicotine to go with their flavor because I don't feel like smoking for a while after I smoke them. Kendal Kentucky and Kendal Dark are find tasting tobaccos but their shag cut makes them burn like a hay rick hit by lightning.

Kendal Kentucky is a nice blend, 3P's is tasty with a touch of nic, Ennerdale and Coniston both have a decent bit of it too. Ropes and twists are always good for nicotine.

What? No Five Brothers fans out there? That stuff makes my socks roll up and down. +1 on @Kevin Keith's Low Country. I like the flavor of that way better than 5 Bros, too.

5 Brothers is good, and I should have thought of that one.

Thanks all for your input! I think the best way forward is to buy tins or samples (no 5 pounders :-) and try 'em all...I've got some shopping to do!
