Match Blends

Post by Fainn » Sun Feb 14, 2016 1:36 am

Having never tried some of the originals, can someone recommend close match blends? I am especially interested in Sugar Barrel and Walnut.

I am also interested in blends that match those currently in production - Prince Albert, Granger, Half and Half, etc., but not limited to OTC blends.

Please only respond if you've smoked the originals. Feel free to recommend blends that are not close, if you feel they are better than the original.

P&C has match blends for some of these here: http://www.pipesandcigars.com/pipe-toba ... own+Series

They also have a bunch of matches in their bulk section.

I feel as if this thread should be in the Tobacco Hut rather than the Library.

It needs a reference list with names, makers, original product for which it is a match etc to be in the library. Does anyone have a nice list? That would be great. Lacking that it is just a discussion and doesn't belong here.
