I just finished reading this entire thread. Yes, all of it. Here are some of my random thoughts about codger burley's:

1. CPS seems to favor SWR over PA.
2. PA gets rave reviews and then some "meh" reviews.
3. Granger is to pipe tobacco as an MRE is to food.
4. I think the term "OTC" or "Drugstore blend" is more suited to the genre than "codger burley" since there are some aromatics, etc. thrown into the discussion.

How good are the Sutliff match blends? I really want to try Walnut, Sugar Barrel, and Country Doctor but I would only want to try them if they were very close approximations of the originals.

Does anyone have any Edgeworth sealed? I have the Lane Ready Rubbed and it's my favorite tobacco so far and I would love to try the original. I have a sealed tin of Balkan Sobrannie from 2017 that I could part with. Probably a lost cause at this point but I thought I'd throw it out there.

This thread is probably one of the best pipe threads I've read yet. Thank you CPS.
HO-HO-HO-Hold on here, pilgrim. SWR over PA? I have my serious doubts, sir.

There is but one name to know in all of Codger Burleydom:

Cornell & Diehl has a new burley blend that I highly recommend. It’s called Redburn and is quite delightful. If you like SWR I think you’ll like this even better.

I just ordered five tins of this stuff based on this post.

I'm holding you personally responsible.

If you don’t like it I’ll be happy to incinerate it for you... one bowl at a time. I recommend using a larger pipe, small pipes seem to muddy the taste a bit. Enjoy :wink:

Glad you like it. I bought some on a whim because it sounded interesting and it turned out to be far better than expected.

I stopped into the local grocery last night and picked up 2 pouches of SWR to take fishing this weekend

If I had to pick one, I don’t smoke these much, but I like Half&half and Carter Hall decently... not a fan of PA.

I've been so busy with those "life things," I've not had time to return to trying out "4th" Generation 1957, from Denmark, or anything else for that matter.
