I had been smoking Virginia/Perique flakes about 80% of the time for the last eight months or so before I discovered this tobacco. I love it...the change to something with a more basic pH gave me a bit of tongue bite, most likely because I j... Read Moreust couldn't stop smoking this from the moment I got it. I read a few forum reviews, and several guys recommended drying time for this blend. I dried it in a glass jar with the heat lamp from a wax incense burner inserted in the mouth, for about an hour, stirring the tobacco around about every 15-20 minutes to ensure even drying. When dried to the point that it feels almost too dry, as described in the reviews, it changed...and I mean unbelievably! It is now completely bite free, even smoother, and the aroma opened up to an absolutely mouth watering degree. This is without doubt one of my absolute favorites...I will most certainly be reordering this regularly and in a much larger quantity...I could almost smoke this and only this and be completely happy...and this coming from a man with over forty blends in the cellar at any given time! I would upgrade this to six stars if I could.
This tobacco is CLEAN. Really a no brainer if you like burley. My daily morning, and often all day smoke, is a 50/50 blend of Prince Albert and Carter Hall...been so for 28 years...nothing pairs better with a hot mug of coffee in the morning. Well, I can't wait until tomorrow morning. I bought a pound of this ERR match based solely on reviews, most stating how accurate of a match it was. I am an old codger at heart, I guess...so I took the plunge...and WOW...this is just plain good. Simple, couldn't be easier to pack, even burning, smooth as can be, and just plain satisfying. Great aroma...this just checks all the boxes. Unpretentious. A trip back in time, if you will...that aroma that made me fall in love with pipe smoking to begin with...this is a timeless tobacco.
It's not complex...but more important than that...it is just...comforting.
And at 2/3 the cost per pound compared to my daily standby...well...I have a feeling my morning cup of Joe may finally see a two tobacco rotation...if this doesn't end up taking its place.

This tobacco just made me into a damn zebra. Read Less
I'm not a fan of most Burleys, so please take that into consideration. The casings and aromatic qualities are what really make me like this blend. I don't smoke aromatics regularly but this makes me come around more frequently than I used to. The ... Read Moresmoke is sweet and smooth, not drying but not mouth filling or cloying. A nice balance. Some marshmallow and chocolate notes, but overall a nutty and earthy smoke with a kiss of sweetness and aromatic quality to help make this a yard work/tooting around with family in the canoe blend. I don't know if this honestly match's to ERR, but if this is what it did taste like, I can understand the nostalgia and wish to have it back. Worth a purchase! Read Less
Can't decide between this and the Lane version? Well don't bother with Lane's reboot of Edgeworth, which is now called simply "Ready Rubbed." It's ribbony, hot, lacking in flavor. Sutliff's "match" though. Wow! It's slow-burning, mellow but full-bodi... Read Moreed, chunky (which I prefer), pleasantly warm in the bowl but cool on the tongue. In fact, I can't get the stuff to bite even when I puff too much. I know the blend's marketed for its burleyness, but there is a slight citrusy tang that gives it that little something else in the flavor department. That's the bit of Virginia hiding in there. It doesn't compete with the Burley--it complements it. I avoid aromatics, but this does have a top note when unsmoked. It's just that, though, a note of something in the café mocha spectrum. When smoked, I don't even notice it except maybe in the room note. Fine with me. I do agree with other reviewers about letting this dry out a bit. A couple of days with the jar open did the trick for me. Get this! Now! Read Less
I always liked simple taste, so I fell in love with this tobacco. Freshly baked bread and cocoa aroma are certainly consistent. Simple and slightly sweet. I enjoy this tobacco with coffee. I recommend you if you are a fan of Burley flavor.
I received 4 oz. of this, this morning and had a bowl. I then had a bowl of Lane's version. I think the Sutliff version is smoother. I get a little bite from LRR. This is a good blend to relax with and not think about. It was a one light, tamp and e... Read Morenjoy. Read Less
Forget whether or not this is your 1970's Edgeworth... Ready Rubbed is a cool smoking, oat like, cocoa /molasses delicious blend of cubed burley. Dry it out until you think its dry enough, then dry it out another hour or two. The key to flavor and ea... Read Moresy burn is to dry it until you think its going to turn to dust, it wont, until you do this it will be flavorless and hard to keep lit. Read Less
Bought 2oz of this ERR Match blend to give it a try. I've never smoked the original Edgeworth, so have nothing to compare it to in that regard, but I've smoked enough to know that this failed to impress.
My order arrived very wet - after several at... Read Moretempts at air drying, I spread the lot on a cookie sheet and baked in a low oven for 20 minutes to purge the excess moisture. A few days in a jar gave the tobacco time to find its new balance.
Nice tin note of honey, oats and graham crackers, but the flavour is very mild and one-dimensional. Carter Hall has more flavour than this blend. I may try adding a bit of CH to the ErR Match just to wake it up a bit. Otherwise, the remainder of my order will sit on the shelf for a long time....
If you're a fan of very mild codger blends, ERR Match may just be your thing; if you prefer blends with fuller, richer flavours, look elsewhere. Read Less
This run of the mill chocolate flavored tobacco bears absolutely no resemblance to the Edgeworth that I smoked 40 years ago. Edgeworth was never this highly top-noted and was dominated by pure tobacco flavors.
After smoking a bit of this I imagine buying this at an herbal store under the listing Tobacco (smoking)
it seems to leave a real heady room note after some time
I like to smoke this when im done with aromatic flavors
