Is there a blend you began with that you no longer smoke? An "I'll call you" tobacco?

all Latakia blends. All I used to smoke. Now I can only stomach them when I have a cold.

I do smoke Epiphany, but the Latakia is applied with a very light hand and it smokes like a Burley.

I gotta admit, it's PA. That's what I started out with, and I'll still start some pipes with it now and then. I don't dislike it, but it doesn't do a lot for me anymore. Still like the vanilla though.

I was an Amphora Red guy for a long time. When I could not get it (or Sail Yellow) I moved on. The current Amphora Full is either not so good as I remembered, or my tastes have changed. If it were all I had, I would smoke a lot of it, but given the cost per ounce and other options, I have have other things to smoke these days.

I agree with the good Father . . . I smoked Amphora Red some 45 plus years past on a regular basis. The current version tastes acrid to me.

SWR was all I smoked until the mid-2000s. There are too many other cheap bulk burley tobaccos for me to justify the $$$ they want for SWR.

All the things I began with are gone . i mean , there are some things still around that were around back then but I didn't start on them .

In the same vein as the op , im trying to think of a blend I liked in the past but no longer like and I'm blank atm

I can't handle CH by itself, but when it's mixed with some Black Cavendish it becomes quite tasty.
