Newminster's No. 702 Light Burley is sure enough just that: lots of light Burley. For those partial to this variety of leaf it may make a fine smoke on its own, while others may appreciate it as a blending (or simply blend-adjusting) component.
A rubbed out flake with chunks of flake here and there. The flavor profile is brighter than most burley with a round but delicate flavor of graham cracker, a touch of oak, cocoa and a bit of honey. The white burley used has a slight floral and assert... Read Moreive grass/hay nuance. This is a light to medium bodied, fairly clean tasting burley with very little nicotine. Anise is the top note and can be assertive if not allowed to air. To hell with Prince Albert, this is better, I'm convinced this is what Peretti uses. I enjoy their blends and mixtures, and this is a dead ringer for one of their burleys. If you want a Peretti without paying for the cool paint can their blends/mixtures come in, try this. The nicotine is 1 out of 5. Read Less
Tastes like Prince Albert but without the chemical lacquer applied to your tongue. If I couldn’t smoke any other tobacco but this one for the rest of my days, I could still die a happy man. If you don’t like it, you don’t like Burley - but let’s keep... Read More this a secret, alright? Read Less
Smoked (sipped) this in a small bowl. Despite not having a bite, it does have a distinctive peppery taste and palate feel. The retro-hale also feels "peppery" but is not unpleasant. The flavor was somehow familiar - since this is the first time I ... Read Morehave smoked Burly on its own, it's familiarity is likely because it is in blends that I have smoked (thinking Billy Budd, GH Dark Flake Unscented, PS Cube Cut).
I will not attempt to develop a taste for this on it's own; however, I will try blending this as a condiment (very small quantity) to add complexity.
Also, this was relatively mild in the nicotine: no salivating, hiccupping, puking or passing out. I could smoke a small bowl a couple of times a day without leaving mouth sores. Or smoke it all day long as a condiment to other blends. Read Less
This is really good. It is a broken flake that I prefer to rub out a bit. It is slightly moist but will burn fine as it is, though I prefer to dry it for about 20 mins. The aroma is of earthy Burley and some cloying sweetness. The flavors are subtle ... Read Morebut always present. I get earth, leather and spice up front. There are some notes that a bit sweet but I can't exactly pinpoint what I am tasting so I assume there was a sugar topping on this blend but it is really subtle. Overall, this is great as a mixer but also great as a daily smoke on its own. 5 stars. Read Less
