My days of smoking aromatics are pretty much gone, other then the occasional bowl of "Mile & Honey" by Habana Premium in Albany, NY. My preferred smoke is any one of a handful of English blends, Peter Stokkebye Proper English being the most common due to it's bulk availability.

I'm a fan of most burley blends . I like J.M. boswell's burley from J.M. Boswell's handmade pipes in Chambersburg PA.

Ever smoked cube cut burley? Dry stuff. They use it for the pipe smoking contest at Just For Him.

I have several blends that I particularly like:

Rattray's Hal of the Wind
MacBaren's PlumCake
MacBaren's Black Ambrosia
Dunhill Early Morning Pipe-while my wife is at work
Special Balkan
Blue Grass Melody-another tobacco for when the wife is gone, and
Maltese Falcon

and yes, I still like my old favorites-Captain Black Royal and Prince Albert

I just opened a tin of McClellands Anniversary Tobacco. I loved the aroma, just a little latakia. I liked it a lot.

once while in kentucky i got to try some kentucky club, and it was great! it had a nutty flavor to it and it had a good full smoke. I havent been able to find it anywhere here in ohio though.

With less than 3 weeks under my pipe smoking belt, of the three tobaccos I've tried (all of which were gifted to me by members of a non-pipe/cigar forum I belong to), the one simply called "Danish Mild" is my favorite. I have absolutely no information on this blend since I just received a few bowls worth in a ziploc bag labeled "Danish Mild." Tobaccoreviews.com didn't turn anything up, however I did find out from the sender that it was a house blend from his local shop (in San Jose area). If anyone knows anything about this tobacco, I'd sure appreciate any info you can share!

The other two rounding out my collection right now are, again another ubiquitously labeled ziploc bag of "Old Briar," and (upon receiving) an unopened tin of Hamborger Veermaster (Virginia) with 5 years cellar time.

i have been discovering for myself through my first mild english blend that this latakia stuff is very, very, very good tasting stuff. i want to dabble with some other english blends and see what else there is to offer, but if this first step into english blends is any indicator, i think i am going to like what i find.
