Let’s face it we live in a world of unlimited possibilities in terms of pipe tobacco choices but not when it comes to budget for most of you saving money is a great thing to be focused on.
Every DIY Pipe Tobacco Blend Begins with the Source Tobacco
You want to start with a great source tobacco. Our very own five star and one of the top five pipe tobacco products in the U.S. can be purchased for just $55 for five pound bag of pipe tobacco goodness.
You have enough to smoke for quite a while unless you are passing the bag around the neighborhood. But assuming you are “saving” your tobacco for personal consumption you have a lot of great source pipe tobacco to play around with.
But, if you don’t want to buy pipe tobacco off the shelf you can always source some Virginia tobacco seeds plant it in the lower forty and then harvest and dry it out. It’s labor intensive but if you have the resources and intent it’s doable for many of you, unless you are in a more urban environment. But, it’s a lot of work.
Why OHM Pipe Tobacco Rocks as a Source Tobacco
Assuming you have bought our OHM Pipe Tobacco you should be good to go for mixing up 3-4 flavors of your very own blend. And, you get to name it and proudly show it off at your next neighborhood barbecue. “My whiskey blend of pipe tobacco and has notes of Knob Creek so let me know what you think!”

What Every DIY Tobacco Producer Needs to Know
Back to our blog post and how to make your own awesome tasting blend of pipe tobacco at home. No fancy ingredients needed; get a plastic container, add some OHM Pipe Tobacco to it (start with a handful of tobacco), add a drop or two of your flavoring agent, let it sit for 24-36 hours in a closed container and then open the lid and let it “air out” for an hour or two and then roll it and fire it up. #livelarge
Look for too much flavor or too little and then adjust your mixture during round two of your DIY tobacco flavoring at home. Go easy on the flavoring agent too; the proverbial “a little goes a long way” is food for thought. Don’t pour in the whiskey or scotch, just add a drop or two.
Want to go really/really large on the process? Then, throw in some high quality dried blueberries into the tobacco and then pick em out later carefully, as they won’t burn well.
