Try Chestnut. I have only sampled Walnut, but Chestnut seems pretty close to me. I can say the Chestnut is very good.

WV SmokeShop has a Walnut match blend, I think made by Sutliff(?). You could give that a shot maybe?

Everyone has their own taste and I know a lotta' folks that really like Walnut.
My first taste was in 2010 on a drive with Ed James to Charlotte to pick up our friend and his wife. 2 Hour drive each way.

Dave Whitney gave us a bag of Walnut for the ride . We both tried it and liked it so much that we threw it out the truck window in Statesville.. half way down...

I'm still getting letters from the Statesville PD about littering.. Only kidding... ted

It's a blend I miss in the colder months I ran out of the original Walnut last Christmas so looking forward to Chestnut I tried a Walnut match that was the name from Smoking Pipes it was not close but good in its own way.

I have been smoking Chestnut off and on for the last couple of weeks, having just had enough Walnut for 3/4 of a bowl I will say that Chestnut is very similar and will say The biggest difference is Chestnut is good all the way through the bowl were Walnut would turn a little sour sometimes near the finish, good tobacco I would highly recommend for those that like a little Latakia (just enough for me anyway) and I appreciate the tip from Fr-Tom. .
