Dunhill EM has definitely moved up on the list, along with the East India Co Officers Club. Bob's Chocolate, and Russ's Candy Cane Coco are on the list also, along with Lane 1Q.
If I had to name the two perineal faves though, it would be Iwan Ries 3 Star Blue, and China Black Vanilla.

Back in 2009 this was my list:
Irish-Dane wrote:Blue Diamond (a local blend---never found its equal)
FMOTT
Majestic 586
No Bite Delite
Watson's Pond
Today I would say the list looks something like this:
Blue Diamond (still my fav)
Squadron Leader
No Bite Delite
FMOTT
C&D Sam's Blend
Seems to be a 4 year cycle for me to reply to this thread. And it seems I've settled into my likes.

Blue Diamond is still my favorite tobacco ever. Unfortunately I'm down to about 5 bowls left and then it's gone forever unless I can find that recipe.
Boswell's No Bite D'Lite
FMOTT
C&D Sam's Blend
Squadron Leader or Dunhill's Early Morning Pipe

I saved the complete tally. If the thread picks up again, I can update the numbers, picking up from today forward. Many you mentioned received a vote or three.
Now, if I only knew where I saved it.

I pulled up this thread to check on my secret santa options, only to find the good Judge still keeping score. Thank you sir.

Now to find out if my recipient left a list somewhere on here.

It is difficult to say what my 5 top blends are unless I go by the 5 I buy most frequently. I guess this would be the same thing as my top 5 favorite blends but I feel like it might not be too.

C&D Burley Flake No. 2
Irish Flake
C&D Dark Burley
C&D White Burley
GH Brown Irish Twist (sliced version)

There are more that I enjoy but don't buy as often, such as C&D Exhausted Rooster, GH Dark Flake Unscented, and 1792.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Surely I must have been drinking much too heavily when I made these posts, and-or misunderstood the thread.

Right now the five I'm smoking include Raku, Dark Star, and various McC English and orientals. Fusiliers Ration and Old Ironsides are up there too, having just finished off my only tins of those.
