    Godger Velvet

    Posted by dbl-bbl on 23rd Apr 2020

    I must confess that I am a burleyphile. This is not to say that I only smoke burleys ... as I do enjoy a myriad of tobacco blends. Nevertheless, when I'm in the mood for a no-nonsense, smooth, and nutty tobacco taste ... I'll reach for a burley. I've smoked quite a few codger burley blends in my day (e.g. Carter Hall, Prince Albert, Sir Walter Raleigh, Half & Half) and still do ... but for some unknown reason, I've put off trying Velvet. Perhaps because like so many pipers I've gotten caught up in that whirlwind of trying many of the so-called "boutique blends". Oh well, so many tobaccos ... so little time! I recently saw a Youtube video by the "artful codger" who did a great job of sharing the history of this long time blend. It piqued my interest so I decided to pick up a pouch and give it a try ... and boy I'm glad I did. This blend reminds me a lot of Carter Hall ... yet it's still different ... perhaps even a tad smoother and nuttier ... just what I like & expect from a burley blend. That's saying a lot for me as I really like Carter Hall (it's been my go-to burley smoke for many years). So now I understand why Velvet has withstood the test of time. By the way, burley's smoked in a cob pipe seem to make a perfect combination ... just like baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet!

    Smooth, with no bite. Nice mellow flavor.

    There is a reason this has been around so long, it's good.

    What can I say, this is one of the best all-around codger blend. You could smoke this all day and be content.
