Latest baccy order is on the way. I went with something different this time. I am still trying to find a replacement for my beloved Drum but keep hitting brick walls so this time I am trying Kendal Kentucky, also on the way is Lanes BCA and Estorica Margate. Anyone know anything about these blends? I read all the reviews on Tobacco Reviews but I always take em with "A Grain of Salt", so to speak.

Hey fisher, can only comment on the Kendal's Kentucky.
It's been forever since I smoked Drum, as I recall it the KK will be much darker in taste and darn sure more potent in the nic department.
I twist up a cig from the KK usually once a day, smooth and rich. Being a fine shag it smokes well for me in small bowled pipes.
Compressed into a tight ball and then pressed into the pipe this smoke and a shot or two of bourbon will take the edge of in the best of ways!

Thanks mate. I have tried Dark Birdseye and 5Brothers so far. Both are good but still not a replacement.

I'll certainly need to try the 5Bros some day. I think the KK is smoother yet very similar in taste to DBE.

good luck on the replacement for drum maybe you can get some one from the states to get you some

Hey Fisher, have you tried Tambolaka? Not sure if that would be a replacement for drum, but it's got a big nic hit to hit.
