Mixing blends

Anyone mix blends and pack a pipe with it? I had a little maple street and taste master left so I combined the two and smoked it, Fantastic! Anyone have success or failure doing the same?

    Trout stream (a butterscotch like aro) and Larry's Blend ( a med english) the latakia breaks up the sweetness and adds smokey depth. I would like to try some more parfaits too... one blend on top, another in the bottom. Havent really tried it yet.

    Sure, I will top off a blend that I am just finishing up. They can be good and there is nothing wrong with mixing. I don't do it too much but sometimes you are puffing and you say I wonder . . . nothing wrong in trying it out!

    I've been experimenting a little and have stumbled upon a good mixture:

    2 thirds Ashton Artisan's Blend to 1 third Samuel Gawith fire Dance flake. some times 1:1

    I have found my sweet spot mixing the OGS and lane Q1....its like chocolate orange cake. delicious, packs the right punch and the OGS makes smoking the Q1 simple and re-light free.

    Yes, when I got low on something I will mix it it with another blend. Usually if an aromatic loses its oomph I toss it into something similar. Usually happens because I don't smoke up what I have open fast enough. Some aromatics hold up just fine though. I have a tin of McClelland Maduro I am thinking of experimenting with.

    Mixed Sutliff Balkan II with C&D Pirate Kake, 50-50, very nice!

    I agreed.

    A good holiday recipe is half P&C Snowdrift and half Candycane Cocoa. Candy and Cocoa is delicious but it doesn't age at all. Buy it for the season but don't get too much because the flavor is gone in a month or two. Snowdrift seems to hold the triple chocolate flavors. Mix them equally and its a delicious chocolate peppermint Christmas wonderland in your mouth. You could sub out the candycane cocoa with Sutliff's Christmas Spice which is delicious without the minty flavor.
