I may try this again substituting C&D Granulated Perique in for the Latakia if the Perique comes back in stock. I have no aspirations that my blend will be any better than commercially available blends, but by golly it's fun to have a hobby.

15 grams C&D Yorktown
2.5 grams C&D Latakia
2.5 grams C&D Chopped Cigar Leaf


Finished pressing half and decided to do the second half. What was originally in the jar can be compressed to what's now in the jar. These two pressed cakes were the same size when removed from the press. The one on the right has been in the jar for a few days has grown in size a little. Each one of these presses should be enough tobacco for 3 normal bowls with a little left over.

I like the concept. I'm going to have to upsize to the noodle press next.
