    Burley's!

    I love them!! Burley's are my go to tobaccos. Some of my favorites are H&H Classic Burley Kake, Park Lanes Fireside, Wessex Burley Sliced, and Old Joe Krants. Oh, and not to forget the good Ole OTC blends. What are your favorite Burley Tobaccos?

    Sterling's Double Eagle (A plug cut burley)
    Mac Baren: Burley: London Blend (this one I think may be deceiving to some, since it says London, I originally thought it was some sort of English blend w/Latakia - nope, it's a Burley / Va blend with hint of Chocolate flavoring).

    I love burley blends too! Sadly when I first started out - back 23 years ago - some old codger recomended I stay away from burley blends - he said "they were bitter." So I did...like an idiot. Well years later - a whole new world opened up to me. (May He suffer from piles in purgatory!)

    Today I got a shipment from Peretti's and tried their B-94 - an excellent Rum soaked burley blend - very full bodied and absolutely delicous - burley lovers need to give this a try. :)

    That sounds pretty good. I might have to try that.

    I've been playing around with the Altadis tobaccos as of late, and I have to say that I am becoming very enamoured of the Kentucky Planter. A nice mild cocoa / cofee casing that accentuates the nuttiness of the burleys like mad. I also don't mind the occasional bowl of Amphora Original Blend (Brown pouch); but I really don't smoke many straight Burleys, preferring it blended with other varietals.

    My favorite is Solani Aged Burley Flake and, among the ones in which burley was dominant but which are no longer produced (although I still have some of each), Edgeworth Sliced and RR.
