I'm going to have a go at it, I think.

Is there some sort of HoF for threads like these?
Is there a long version video documentary archived somewhere, lol?
Thank-you, sounds7, plexiprs, etc.. :)

Question: What Virginia tobacco which is available most resembles FVF? I use FVF in my sobranie recipe. When i started making this stuff it was the Yenidje and Syrian latakia that were scarce. Now FVF is hard to come by. I guess I can always send off to Europe for FVF but that doesn't help keep cost down. :mmph: Help me out of my frustration please.

Since sounds didn't get an answer, and since I have to give my compliments to all who participated, I felt right in bumping this.

The patience you all had with fine-tuning this mixture, going so far as to slow-cook it is amazing. Sorbanie must have been a fine blend indeed. I've bookmarked this thread so I can remember to try the recipe when I have the funds and tools available.

Thanks for the effort all!

Hey maybe I will get my answer now. Although I did recently find a few tins of FVF.

Does marcovgv still come around? He was the one that added the deer tongue idea (Which was a good one) I am curious how his "pressed" version came out.




On a funny side note, all the time I spent reading this thread and I just now for the first time realized that American Psycho-Analyst had spelled Sobranie wrong in the thread title. funny what the mind does sometimes, or in my case doesn't do sometimes.

Dear Madames-Sirs,

It is now holiday time and for the first time I am actually looking forward to them!

This thread has stuck in the back of my mind for months now and I was wondering if, in the spirit of the holidays anyone has any of their fine-cooked mix of Sounds7 Sobraine for sale?
I am currently enjoying "Royal Blend" from L.J. Perettis but have developed a growing curiosity over this very special mixture by Sounds7.
Would anyone have a vein of their blend to spare for a person that would love to share my response to friends and perhaps start a word-of-mouth trend?

In gratitude,

Jay (aka Bill)

Hello,

I'm sorry if bumping this two year old thread is rude but I'm wondering if anyone has smoked this homebrew mixture and compared it to the recent reincarnation of Balkan Sobranie. The supply of it at current seems to be a bit inconsistent as every online pipe shop is sold out at the moment so having a somewhat accurate recipe for when supplies are low doesn't sound like a bad idea to me.


-Thanks,
NeroG

I'm going to have to see what, if any, of the listed tobaccos are still available to give this a go.
