Now heres a question.

Margate is described as=A classical English mixture done in the "old style" of many of the fine tobaccos that have now disappeared from the market place. Choice Orientals and generous quatities of premium Cyprian Latakia keynote this rich, full bodied blend. A well balanced, robust and eminently satisfying smoke. with- Virginia,Latakia and Oriental

McClellands Oriental No.14 as= Dark with Latakia and Black Virginias, deeply seasoned with Orientals, this is the classic full Scottish smoke.

Even though one is Oriental, and the other is an English, what large difference would there be to smoke both in the same pipe?

just a quick thought, to me in words they look identical but this is why I'm the noob

nobody answered this one?

the difference between the two is the amount of each ingredient.
Oriental #14 has more Orientals "deeply seasoned with Orientals", it's a dark blend because latakia is dark, and the base is black virginias;
Margate has "choice orientals" (to me, lightly seasoned) and "generous quantities of premium Cyprian Latakia".

it comes down to the amount of each ingredient. if you were to call up Cornell and Diehl to design your own blend, they'd give you a list of ingredients and tell you to add them in 1/16th amounts at a time. so, 7/16ths bright VA, 3/16ths dark VA, 3/16ths Perique, and 3/16ths burley... that would be a Va/per/bur. so an english would have more 16th latakia, and the oriental would have more... orientals, maybe with zero latakia. both with a VA base.

balkans, on the other hand, like Penzance, which is probably the only latakia heavy blend i'd want to smoke if i had to smoke one for the rest of my days... if i recall, and my be wrong, they are high in both latakia and orientals, hardly any VAs (that i've noticed). again, could be wrong on this one, don't research it much since it's not my bag.

btw - how's it coming with the pipe? got any new favorites?

if you are just coming over from cigars, Penzance is highly recommended.
Also try this place for good, inexpensive pipes:

Thank you!
well i actually went through all of my Margate, am started to get more into Vapers and Virginias Finallys. I Love vapers, but lately it seems they get really harsh on my throat any more then half a bowl. Flake virginia's intrigue the hell out of me haha, So still looking for more English blends, Vapers and Virginia Flakes to enjoy.

Do you have a recommendation for a really light smoke blend possibly for early days... in comparison to Dunhills Early morning?
