If you are a burley purist.. this is your blend. I have smoked this pretty much exclusively for 2 years [all day]. This is superb, hits all the right notes, balanced, and smooth.. oh, and the nicotine is sublime. A+ If you are here because someone told you this was comparable to Solani Burley... move along. This is terrible tobacco, heavily flavored [despite the description] and no better than drug store brands. $20 straight in the trash.
Been a few years since I smoked this great Burly. To me, it is still full flavored. Packs well. Needs to be dried out for a day or two. Required little relighting. It's a fooler. Gains strength as you get to the last half of the bowl. Pretty powerful as you progress to the bottom. Leaves a very strong back taste on the tongue and back of the throat. Burns to ash with little to no dottle.
Great tasting Burley, aged mellow with no bite, great after-taste of light chocolate and licorice on the inhale (very light). Burns clean to the bottom leaving no hoop or mess, just light ash. Easy to tear off some tobacco and rub out in your hand until it’s like the original Amphora which is soft and stuffs into your pipe with no hassle.
Tin note is sweet, nutty and light chocolate; mouthwatering. Slow, light puffs/sips like you should smoke Burley will reward you with a smooth, flavorful smoke that will leave you wanting more! Burley smokers dream to be kept on hand always!
Of the best tobaccos that I've smoked. To me, it's totally unique. Has almost a pine or cedar taste. Haven't had a lot of time with it yet but so far so good. Tin note is malty and fermented grain. Beautiful presentation the flakes are top quality.
I want to give this a bad review so it's more available. This stuff is So. Good. I wish it wasn't so hard to get ahold of.
Solani ABF, in my estimation, is the premier of all currently available burley blends. it burns evenly, has a most pleasant room and tin note, and comes with just the right moisture content. Probably in large part due to its popularity and high quality, it is often not avaiable and does cost a bit more than its closest competition. Overall, well worth the wait and the slightly extra cost!
Good stuff. I think it smokes/tastes best when rubbed out or cut into cubes. Needs some drying time but well worth the wait. One of the most flavorful all-natural burley blends out there. Additionally, Tobacco Pipes offerings & service is the best!
Aged Burley flake is simply superb. The flake feels a bit too moist out of the tin, however it burns fantastic. I have found rubbing it out and giving it a couple minutes of dry time is perfect. It burns nice and cool in the bowl, down to a fine ash. This blend presents the best of Burley based blends. With sweet flavors of carmel and coco, and molasses, along with a toasted nuttiness, earth, leather, and a a sharp pepper on the back of the palate and through the nose. There is a lot of complexity and flavor to this blend with out being overwhelmed by strength. This is a must try for fans of Burley.
