Well, I guess I'm doing it wrong...using condimentals as bases and bases as condimentals...and if that's wrong, I don't want to be right. And I got a friend hooked on the blend and he gets it made in a west Texas tobacco shop.

Jeff, I enjoy stronger blends. I tend to use Dark Fired tobaccos, both Kentucky and Virginia more as a base. Then I add flue cured Virginias and Orientals as condiments to the stronger tobaccos.
