This one used to be smoked by Einstein's MAID. She would flavour his grits with it.

Having had such a success with these silly old blends from the Coolidge era, perhaps H o' W can now heap the gold in its saddlebags by reviving some of the old European blends, long lost to us Americans thanks to the lobotomised UNenterprise of Imperial Tobacco et al.

How about reviving the authentic Three Nuns, Sobranie Flake, Balkan Sobranie, Capstan, Gold Block, and all the other beauties, H o' W?? Getting a license from the Timid Octopus ought to be a cinch. Just growl at 'em!

The burley was easy to pack, and easy to keep lit. Kind of nutty with a little molasses and sugar sweetness, there were a few sour notes and a little roughness near the finish, though it did not bite. Left no dottle. It was a typical burley blend, not bad, but not enough to excite. Deserves two and half stars, but not three.

Well folks, what you see is what you get. Cubed burley. If you don't like burley, then why bother? If you enjoy simple unpretentious blends, you will probably like this pretty well. Sure, it isn't exciting, but it is very comfortable. Best in a cob. It is quite inexpensive as well.

This is a very fine cut cubed burley. It is composed of equal parts of light & medium colored cubes. Due to the small size of each cube I recommend using a gravity feed to keep from compressing too much while loading your bowl. It lights easily & came with a reasonable moisture level right from the package. It burns well & requires a minimum number of relights. The taste is nutty, as expected, & pretty even throughout the whole bowl. It did not exhibit any bitterness near the end of the bowl like some other burley blends. This is a good, inexpensive blend but does not have quite the sweetness of range of say Nut Brown Burley from Pipeworks & Wilke. For the price this is recommended for burley lovers.
