GH Brown Flake Unscented
GH Grasmere Flake
GH No 7 Broken Flake
GH Louisiana Flake (something of a trend here Rolling Eyes )
McClellend 2035 (or maybe GH Happy Brown Bogie or Black Irish Twist/X)

I see some fabulous choices in bulk tobacco's.  Must mention two others:

C&D Old Joe Krantz
C&D aged Billy Budd

I basically stick with 10 To 12 bulk blends in between ALL the tin tobacco's I enjoy and smoke cheers cheers

Here are two bulk tobacco's I would not smoke again:
Medal of Valor bulk version. It's chopped fine and a much lower grade of Latakia compared to the fine tin version.
Dunhill Nightcap bulk version. Tastes and smokes nothing like the tin version. Both are horrendous bulk tobacco's in my opinion.  

Please post the worst bulks you've ever smoked


KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

The only bulk tobaccos I buy are from G & H; as well as Peter Stokkebye's Cube Cut. So I guess that makes them part of my top 5. Razz

- Navy Flakes by PS and Newminster -- Like them both, and in a blind test  I couldn't tell the difference, so I'm counting them as one. So sue me.
- Mac Baren Plumcake -- It's available in a bulky one pound bag. Great stuff and doesn't bite, not me, anyway.
- Mac Baren Virginia #1 -- Nice Va smoke for less.
- McC 5100 -- Great by itself or blended.
- Peter Stokkebye Proper English -- All day smoke, ages well, great value.

You simply seized the opportunity to make a list, and you know we pipe smokers love to make random lists one way or another!
