So I had my fantasy football draft at my local B&M last night and I decided to rub out some Hamborger Veermaster. Rubbed out what I thought was enough for 2 bowls. Turns out I only ended up smoking. So today I grabbed the rest of what I rubbed out the night before. Turns out it was only about 2/3 of a bowl. Instead of rubbing out some more HV I decided to add Stonehaven for the other third of a bowl. Turned out to be quite a success. Not suggesting you rub out all that highly coveted Stoney to mix, but if you are looking for a change of pace might be worth a try!
Interesting idea and I might have to try this as they are both great tobacco's, but if it completely ruins the taste of my Stoney (even 1 bowl) I'm gonna come looking for ya!
Hahahaha...I would completely understand! lol Stoney is my fav and HV is without a doubt #2 to me, but there is a big gap between the 2. Not saying I'm going to do this all the time, but i thought I'd see how it went and I will say I rather enjoyed it!

It's about time! lol every other time I've tried something like this it hasn't turned out well at all!!! lol
I think a mix of strong and mild work best. Ropes n a little OTC burley are cracking. I think the trick is two blends that can complement without losing their distinctive. notes, not easy given the complexity of most blends and the neutrality (does that make any sence lol) of others.
