If you're interested in blending your own tobaccos at home, the first thing you need to know is your components — namely what each leaf brings to the blending table. In the first part of two videos covering blending components, Jeremy gives you the lowdown on the uses of base blending components, i.e. the main tobaccos used to form the base of a blend — including red and bright Virginias, white, dark, cube-cut, & ribbon Burleys, and black Cavendish.
And in case you didn't know already, we offer all of our blending components in tins as well, so you can pick up a few and try your hand with some recipes. Or even cellar some components away to blend later after they've gotten a bit of age on them.
