Eight ounces of this burley and one ounce of C & D Granulated Perique make up my favorite all day smoke now. The two seem to compliment each other perfectly.

This burley runs the gamut on the burley note profile from light to dark; it has the brighter walnut like tannic qualities as well as the fermented dark earthiness of composted leaf litter. It doesn’t possess the added cocoa or bourbon notes found in... Read More Prince Albert, but the quality is so much higher in this that it doesn’t require it. It possesses natural notes of burnt cocoa, black pepper and walnuts (both bitter and sweet). It’s a more elegant and natural version of Prince Albert, with a kick of nicotine. Smoked slow with a light ember will reward you with all the wonderful flavor profiles burley offers and does so with more sweetness. For the price and ease of loading (cube cut is without a doubt the easiest to simply dip and scoop), I prefer this to Solani Aged Burley Flake - though Solani offers a flavor explosion, albeit added flavor. A good quality component for mixtures/blends, and excellent on its own if you love burley. Moderate to full body and the nicotine level is medium. Read Less

To start my pipe club utilizes a cube cut Burley they've cased in a light vanilla for thier slow smoke contests. It is NASTY! So, bring tired of smoking that stuff to loose all the time I figured I'd pick up some cube cut and train. There are worse t... Read Morehings to train for. Pripr to lighting I thought I would have to struggle through bowl after bowl and just have to "learn how to enjoy it". Much to my surprise, it started off smooth and mellow with little flavor to speak of. Then it started to grow. The back note of sweetness came to the for front. "Forom a Burley?!" The sweetness soon gave way to a pleasant bitterish earthiness that I can't even describe; but the sweetness still remained on the edge of the pallate. Now I will be ordering this succulent delicious adventure for the simple sake of enjoying it fully! Read Less
My fresh batch of cube cut Burley arrived earlier today, I got tins this time instead of a bulk bag. It’s easier to keep it smokably fresh and stored that way. The date stamp says 5/18/22 so it’s as fresh as I’ve seen. Of the three tins, I popped the... Read More one that was slightly swollen, let it breathe for a few minutes then loaded my #1 Peterson bent pot a pinch at a time before doing a light tamp and a charing light, let it go out and relit it a couple of minutes later. The tin note is, as you might expect, pure tobacco…no surprises and sort of a nice change. The tobacco itself is presented as nice little cubes and is very easy to handle. The #1 Peterson is a bent pot with a comparatively wide shallow bowl and seems well suited to this tobaccos burning characteristics. The room note is mild as is the flavor. It’s what I expected. My experience with cube cut burley dates to 1974 when I had my first bowl, gratis from a local shop. I was back the next day for a pound which lasted most of a year. That was all they had so I spent several years looking for some more. C&D has a good version of this and I highly recommend it as a blender or, as I prefer, a nice light smoke that doesn’t bite or overwhelm the taste buds. I’ve tried the other offerings and the only one that comes to mind is PS-41, it too was a nice easy smoke but different than what I have now. For thise curious about the natural flavor of high quality Kentucky tobacco, this is a fine example, presented in an easy to handle form. Read Less

My 4 oz. bag came in today’s mail with similar amounts of Stoved Virginia and Dark Burley. It’s to be used as an ingredient in a blend I’m doing but I figured I’d better try it out on its own beforehand. The stuff is easy to handle due to its cut and... Read More loads instantly with just a light tamping. It lights easily and stays lit very well which is why I’m using it in my blend. It has a good burley flavor and produces a decent volume of mild straight tobacco smoke. I’m trying it in a well broken in Peterson 106, about as average a pipe as can be had. If you enjoy Burley, this is a good one smoked straight up, mild with no bite and easy to keep lit. I have tried the cube cut in tins and I’m not sure this is different. I bought bulk to facilitate blending without having to worry about a parially used open tin. It’s very enjoyable and an easy smoke with good Burley flavor and aroma. Read Less
I was introduced to Cube Cut Burley back in the 70’s at Jon’s Pipe Shop in Clayton, MO...love at first puff. His was from southeast Missouri and I’ve never had any since that came close to its character. I smoked it straight and enjoyed it every time... Read More. The C&D equivalent is a good smoke if taken slowly but lacks the mysterious flavor of my first encounter. Having said that, I regularly use this one as a blender with PA. Both benefit in my opinion when blended about 50/50. It smokes cooler than either and adds some missing taste to both. It’s a go to smoke for when I’m bored with the others or just want an easy experience. It’s a bit dry in the tin but picks up needed moisture from the PA after a few days getting to know each other. On its own, it’s OK, lights easily, burns well and has no bad habits...if smoked slowly. It’s straight up Burley for those who enjoy that sort of thing...me amongst them. Read Less

If you plan to smoke much of this stuff straight, I'd recommend a screen in the bottom of the pipe, or at least a pinch of rough cut or ribbon to keep the draw clear and free of chunky bits. But overall, this is another great C&D product. Read Less
