Updates,

Week 1 steep

Dark for pipe, 2.5% solo, this one started out very alcohlic for me the smokiness pipe flavour is rearing its head, must g9 back for another 2 weeks steep, but definately interesting, it could use some ashiness

Am4a very interesting aromatic at 4 percwnt, rum and dark fruity notes can vape it solo but for me this lacks any pipe or tobacco, and no smokiness, think of this as a aromatic top not and mid note, i thinks this needs 1 percent of dnb or dark for pipe

Inw cherry cigar - think this needs more time, no cigar and the cherry is washed out at 2% solo, underwhelming and bland

Red burley flv, winner! and see this paiting with fw hazelnut and tfa pistachio, pairs well with flv cured

Flv native expected more ,might need more time, kind of 1 dimensional.

SHYNDOS Blavk forrest bacco is very very nice indeed, tatanka plays well with chocolate deautsh, but the tobacco notes are one dimensional mouthferl and balanve is great

I hope you guys have tried Hangsen Tobaccos....They are pretty good as one shots or single flavours

I also love FLV Red Burley. Anything that needs a tobacco boost, thats my go to at 0.5-1%.

FLV Kentucky Blend gives a strong ash effect. Not a flavour I usually want. I seldomly use it at 0.25%. But nothing more. Although some have used it higher.

It is really difficult to describe tobacco flavours and associate them to the names like Kentucky and Burley for me.
If you are referring to Flavorah and Inawera Tobacco flavours I can relate but if you took Inawera Cavendish vs Flavorah Cavendish, they are miles apart in the flavour department.

Based on the above, I'd recommend the following
Magic Mix - Sweetish tobacco with a raisin finish to it
Congress - Grassy ciga-like type flavour (Not my favourite tobacco profile but this one was actually pretty good)

I wanted to recommend Deluxe and Indian Tobacco but unfortunately they no longer seem to be stocked by our local vendors which is a pity.

As far as Flavorah tobaccos go, this is my "Must Have" List
Red Burley,
Kentucky Blend,
Cured Tobacco,
Tatanka,
Native
There are some new ones that FLV have released, I hope local vendors will stock soon.

Other flavours I've enjoyed
Cuban Cigar Tobacco Absolute (INW) (Not the normal Cuban Cigar, must be the Absolute version)
Western (TFA)
Tobacco Additive (FE)
Cubano (TFA)
Tobacco Symphony (INW)

The list is longer but this is all I could remember without going through my stash.
Hope this helps

Flv kentucky blend i mix at 3 percent with flv cream at 0.4 prevent and its very nice, i dont get the ash but it needs 3 weeks to shine

Native Tobacco (FLV) is a pretty good tool and I believe it is one of the components of Red Burley (FLV). I mixed it with a touch of Maple Syrup (FA) and Shisha Vanilla (INW) and it tasted pretty close to Red Burley (FLV)

Happy to feedback that i Single tested:

1 - Inw Black for pipe ( managed to get stock from Flavour mill) Solid at around 3-3.5% works well with DNB - Nice , not as potent as Dark for pipe it lacks ashy taste but it has a smokiness to it ,
2 - Inw Don Hill - Flat and bland may need a long steep at 3.5%
3- Fe Captain - 2% - Wowo 4 days into a steep and this is just so nice , maple and earthy pipe tobacco - not sweet just smooth , but you can taste the tobacco its not in the background - i can see myself vaping this all the time , will increase the mix percentage to 45 and see how it evolves, WOW
FA oak wood and Fa Black fire are nice additives at 0.3% each , and i need to still mix and test out TFA red oak

I have some Brigade 2506 steeping - althoyugh i could not find Inw Ta cuban so i subbed it with Inw Cuban cigar - will have to see how it steeps out
Also tried Cam light recipe from blck vapour and its very nice as well

I actually have the TR Black Cherry tobacco steeping, off the knuckle wasnt too impressive, the Cherry is is not a dry inw style its more of a fruity , will report back in 2 weeks to see if i get any tobacco out of it ,
