My favorite burley blends are the C&D burley flakes

Is Prince Albert a straight Burley?
It's 2016. We don't ask questions like that, anymore.

Shut up, Bob.

It's all white burley, yes. It has a slight top dressing, some say chocolate.

I'm new to Pegasus. It's all I've smoked for nearly a week now.

Darned fine stuff, that Pegasus.

I'm toying with the idea it may be molasses as the first few puffs always seem bittersweet before mellowing out.

Some guy was there who said that he had collaborated with Ted Gage on some edition or other of Trial by Fire. I said that it was better when you wrote it. Others agreed.

Perhaps the rest of us know who Mr. Serad is and realized we have forever blown a good impression with our juvenile humor? And my horrible spelling? They stopped carrying Pipes and Tobacco at my old B & M. I have every issue for ten years, but now I'm three behind.

Please subscribe! I have been here before. I was in an unpleasant theological discussion and I mentioned it was ungracious. I was told that if the heat was too much to get out of the kitchen so I did. But here I am, peeking over to of the trench to see if the shooting has died down.

My apologies as I've only been here a few months and was meant only as a joke. There are several back issues I want, but I may have to wait on the subscription because we hope to move soon.

So happy to see WSerad mention Uhle's in Milwaukee! Although prices are much better if you can avoid the Wisconsin/Illinois state taxes.

Blend 255 is a cube cut burley that is my favorite for big bowl smokes on long road trips.

Thank you for popping in! The last burley guru I corresponded with was Bob Runowski but he has sadly passed on. I had one request for him and it was to make his interpretation of Half & Half using C&D tobacco. He said that he was working on just that very blend but after several PMs went unanswered I saw the obituary. Would you be willing to take on such a project?

Love 255. I have a long-running addiction to 300. Perfection was a fav of Bob Runowski and 00 is hard to beat for the purist.

Bob was a friend of mine. He lived around the corner from my mother and was a fellow member of the Christopher Morley Club in Philly. We were both friends with Craig Tarler. H&H as a blend isnt hard but the casing is a mystery. Bob's version of Revelation missed the mark to me not because of the blend, but the topping was off. In the old days, manufacturers made their own casing agents, toppings and sauces. There are only about 8 flavoring companies in the entire world now, so these unique flavorings are being lost forever. Some are no longer legal as food products. So whatever it is in H&H that gives that unique aroma is beyond me. The current production from STG is the best it has been in 40 years so I would stick with that, frankly. There are loads of copies that completely miss the mark because of the toppings, not the leaf. Lots of House of Windsor copies, for instance.
