I think one is very lucky to find a perfect tobacco for one's taste. I have found two! Burley Flake #1 and this jewel called Burley Flake #4. They are equal in my scale of perfect Burley blends.

Great tasty, moist flake! Smoky-sweet, barbecued meat tin note. Nutty, spicy, and almost wholegrain cereal flake flavor. Nice sweet tobacco finish. A chewy, mouth-watering smoke that has a pleasant kick, to boot.

Beautiful soft well fashioned flake. I have to redux my review on this blend. I was being very critical in my initial review. My first few bowls of this were so-so, but I really didn't dry it properly and smoked it straight from the tin. Give it some... Read More dry time, it will surely age nicely too.

This is a strong, smooth, smoky burly. Flake is mostly broken, nice moisture level. You better like Burley and Latakia! Smells of old leather boots. Wonderful stuff.

Something about this blend just seemed super clean tasting, definitely a higher quality than the C&D Burley's i'm used to. Most burley's I've tried have a ashy undertone, not this one.

So wet in the tin that I would bet it wouldn't burn with charcoal lighter. I spread it out on a sheet of paper and went to the store for 2 hours. When I returned it was as crunchy as corn flakes. I put a humidifier button in the jar and now I get to ... Read Morewait a couple of days for it to even out. I like some C&D/G.L Pease blends, but it's a pain in the ass trying to get them smokeable. I wish C&D would quit drowning their products with whatever it is that they add to them. I never go through this with most of the other
tobaccos I smoke.
Update: I gave this tobacco a dismal review because of its condition upon opening the tin. After I got it stabilized I tried a few bowls and this is my opinion after trying it. The dark fired contributes most of the flavor, a dark and smoky flavor with notes of sorghum. The flavor is not bad, but there are other things that rule it out for me. It is hard to keep lit, and the more you work to keep it going the more you get of its intense nicotine hit. The nicotine comes on with the first draw and does not let up through the rest of the bowl. Even after a large meal I could not finish a bowl of it. To sum it up, it would be a good blend for the flavor if you can take the nicotine, but it's way too intense for me. If you are a big burley fan, go ahead and give it a try. Read Less
This is a satisfying and perfectly smoky, sweet blend. It has enough bright burley and fruity red VA to make the Latakia become that thing that it can become when it is not overwhelming.

I find it hard to imagine any pipe smoker who enjoys a strong blend, at least occasionally, not enjoying this one. Give it time to settle down or it will bite you. The required pacing along with the subtle sweet smokiness of it is what makes it the thoughtful smoke that it is. Just lean into it. Read Less

Less than a third of the way through my second bowl, I started chuckling. Later I happily told my wife that this blend kicked my a$$.

This is a blend to smoke across the table from Strider in a dark corner of the Inn of the Prancing Pony at Bree--as an elder local whom Strider has judged not to be a girly-hobbit--or a blend you smoke with Robert Mitchum at a rural still in Kentucky after making a run on Thunder Road. It may bring its own version of too much Izmir. I realized I had to slow down, like you should if you are going to enjoya full plate of bauernfruhstuck. I smoke it in a vintage GBD prince which I have dubbed "The Burley Bowl." Pipe as crucible. Good in the evening about every two week when I am in the mood for an arresting attitude adjustment.
