    I am enjoying this one despite it being a departure from what I normally smoke.

    So far I really love this stuff. Landis hit me with some samples recently and these blends have really hit the spot I was looking to fill. I have loved C&D burley flake #1, and #3. GLP Cumberland was really tasty also, and I have been using 5 bros. as tinder for the flakes. Awesome as well...

    I am not an aro guy but it just seems like everyone enjoys this blend, it gets mentioned in alot of threads which leads me to believe it must be good. I am not even sure I know who the blender is. Can anyone tell me what this tastes like.

    I'll admit I was a little nervous to try this after Landis' review but since Jesse sent it to me and I've really been wanting to try these burley blends. Soooo, dizzy. Landis wasn't kidding about the nic! Wow. This stuff is up there with Tambo and Kelly's Coin. When I opened the bag I...

    NICOTINE MONSTER!!!!!! OK, had to get that out of the way right off. If you have never danced with lady N before, this one will have you on the dancefloor in the first few puffs. I mean this literally. I just finished my second bowl in 2 days, and after a charring light and relight, I had to...

    Well Nate, wait no longer! I popped my tin and loaded up a bowl this morning for the drive in. Int the tin the aroma is ever so slightly sweet and very grassy meadow smelling. Not bad at all. Rough rubbed leaf similar to the other Mac's I've tried recently. It lights easily and has decent...

    I have never smoked straight burley before. I have heard that Uhle's has some of the best straight burley tobaccos around. A book store 10 minutes from me carries his tobacco. So I decided to try some, and bought Perfection Plug. Would I smoke this in a Virginia pipe, or does it need it's...

    OK doggone it! I've only had one burley that wasn't blended with other tobaccos and I really didn't like it. Now, after reading all you nutjobs who love the stuff and the ones talking about mixing with Half and Half, I bought a pouch of H&H. It was good and I enjoyed it. Now, all of the...

    I had a 250g box of SG Comonwealth and did not like it very well so I added 2 oz of mixing orientals and let it age for a few months. That improved it but it still didn't ring my bell. I am considering getting some Walnut or similar burley mix and mixing it half and half. Anyone try a similar...

    First of all let me say that Ken's review was pretty much spot on. Just as Hollywood can give us Armageddon and Deep Impact there is hopefully room for a similar take on the same product. Pipe: For this I went with a classic: the Missouri Meerschaum Legend. A nice burley blend in a cob, I love...

    Butternut Burley Prelight aroma Sweet caramel like molasses that just tickles the senses. It's like opening a bag of Werthers, so good you almost want to eat it! Packing & Lighting I use the gravity fill method as this one is very easy to pack. A couple of tamps and away we go. Unlike a...

    ABF is alot better than Wessex Burley Slice. WBS is still very good but ABF doesnt have the bite and is alot smoother IMO.

    Not sure why but I'm not quite into the Cornell Diehl Burley #3. maybe it needs to sit for a period of time. Is it me? Do you have to acquire a taste for this blend? I just don't know what it is. So if you have some Sugar Barrel, MB Vanilla Creme or the like LMK. What I have is a recently...

    Hello everyone. I am reading up and trying to learn the basics of pipe smoking. I would like to try some Virginia (I live in VA) and Burley blends. I tried flavored tobacco and do not care for it nor the tongue bite. Can you offer advice on quality VA & Burley tobaccos that are easy to find...

    Sometimes one needs to eat some crow :) Upon reading this quote of mine in anothe thread commonsenseman stepped out of the shadows in a dark trench coat and filled my inbox with a PM saying.. So you don't think you like burley huh kid. You should really try some of this ABF (Aged Burley...

    And another newbie review and offer :) Part of the sample I got from C&D also included Burley Flake #4. C&D really did a good job in spreading my samples of across the spectrum and newbie friendly tobacco (there where a couple she wouldn't let me try LOL) Now I don't know if this is what...

    If anyone is interested in seeing the early stages of processing Burley tobacco, I've finally gotten off my butt and uploaded some pics to my "Workin Baccer" album in my profile here. This is kinda a shameless plug, but I thought some of you might like to see the pics. This was part of a...

    So, I'm just now coming to the blissful last third of a bowl of Mac Baren Navy Flake, and am wondering, what are some of your favorite burley blends, besides the usual Prince Albert, et al.? I have really enjoyed this one, along with Reiner Long Golden Flake (although the burley is more of a...

    I tried Tinder Box Special No. 2 today. It's cube cut and loads easily into the bowl. Hard to light and keep lit, though. At first I was indifferent to it; however, the more I smoked the more I enjoyed it. What's interesting to me is that I accidentally inhaled some smoke which will...

    Just received all 3 tins in this series. They all appear quite similar in the tin with C&D broken flake presentation. Some don`t like how the flakes fall apart, but I prefer it. Makes for an easy fill and they rub out easy if that is the route you choose. I tried #1. I`ll my best to describe...
