My preferences lean towards the more full, robust pipe blends. Would anyone be able to give recommendations for some excellent English, Balkan and Oriental Blends that are on the more robust side. One caveat - no Perique, please! :tu

Comoy's Cask Nš 11 is a pretty good traditional Balkan. I tried this one and it got me on trying their other stuff, which I also like, so far.

Oh yeah, Gawith and Hoggarth Mixture #12. This is probably my quintessential English.

Good suggestions. My favorites thus far are Dunhill Nitecap and 965, McClelland Old Dog and CPCC Scottish Woods, Penzance (of course), Balkan Sasieni and Sutliff Berkshire for a mild, smooth English. Not much of a fan of Perique. Tried C&D's Epiphany,Bayou Night, and Bayou Morning - all from bulk. Didn't care for any of them, but admit that I wonder if bulk was not as good as tinned pipe blends would be.

Bayou Night & Morning have Perique.

Hearth & Home Signature 10 to Midnight. It is on the Mild Side It is a very nice Tobacco and I love the Blends of Hearth & Home. Some more english, Daybreak, and House of Lords, Mild-Med.

McClelland No. 5110 Dark English is Mild to med it is hard to know Robust without Perique.
