A graham cracker drizzled with honey, this is the perfect blend for a Burley lover looking for a smidge of sweetness. Ingredients: Cube-cut and ribbon Burley with black Cavendish.

Notes: The description from an older Uhle's brochure reads, "Cube-cut with Honey-Hive flavoring ... just a youngster as our blends go ... since 1948 ... but what a blend! You can smoke it day in and day out and never tire of the flavor. What can you say about a blend like this in a short space ... it's really elegant smoking. Too good to blend with anything else."

The burleys offer a bit of earth, some nuts and molasses, with a little wood and slight sharp and spice notes, including there’s a pinch or two of white burley present. In the background is some brown sugar from the unsweetened black cavendish for a little smoothness. The honey topping mildly tones down the burleys with a light richness, though I prefer to say it works in concert with those burleys. The nic-hit is a shade past the mild level. Won’t bite or get harsh, but has that white burley rough edge. Burns clean just less than at a moderate pace with a very consistent flavor that has a minor savoriness. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights. Has a pleasant after taste, and can easily be an all day smoke.

Uhle’s is one of America’s few and true pipe shops. Which is a nice thing, but it is the quality of their blends, especially their Burley and the excellent Bishop’s Move (English) that really attracts me to Uhle’s. Blend 300 is a cube cut, kind of “old timey” Burley that is lightly sweetened with honey. I just gravity fill the bowl and settle back for a long smoke. Uhle’s website has Blend 300 listed under their non-aromatic section, but I personally would call this an aromatic, albeit a light one. Either way, the sweet and nutty flavor never turns bitter and burns cleanly. Sometimes, simple is a very good thing and Blend 300 is just that.

Just when I thought it couldn't get better than PPB or 00, I tried Blend 300 and think this may be my favorite of the three. This has all the nutty burliness one would want in a burley blend, but also has some elements that differentiate it from the others.

In addition to the Virginia that naturally sweetens most burley blends, 300 also has the honey hive topping, whatever that is. It works well as it is very mild so as not to block out the natural burley flavor. From the topping standpoint this one is a little sweeter than 00, but less so than PPB. It also is a cube cut, which I love. This gets big points for me as I think cube cuts are particularly good with VaBurs. Although a good portion of PPB is also cube cut and may be one of the additional reasons I love that blend. 300 is all cube cut. Cube cuts are hands down the easiest no brainer to pack. It is just like pouring the tobacco in with zero tamp necessary. They also treat you to a nice long smoke, although they do take a little extra lighter fluid to start up.

Uhle's has proven themselves to be masters of the burley leaf and 300 is another great example of why that is. Highly recommended.

I'm a burley fan and a believer that they can give you some very interesting nuance if coerced through proper puffing. Usually burleys will bear out notes that are quite nutty (OTCs), or earthy (C&D), or some combination thereof. They are usually quite linear from top to bottom and generally reviled by both aromatic lovers and anglophiles as having too much 'cigarette' flavor.

This particular burley comes fantastically prepped in a cube-cut and ready to go out of the bag. The sweetness provided by the mild casing/dressing is too light to be perceived in taste, but does impart some noticeable variation on the traditional burley flavor. The nuttiness is quite noticeably absent and the 'rough edges' present in some OTC burleys and even some blending houses of note has been smoothed out quite nicely here.

This could be your all-day everyday tobacco, but don't look for great depth of character in it. This is very dependable and pleasant. My impression of Uhle's in general is quite good after testing #300, #00, and Bishop's Move, a stout English blend.

I have been on a Burley bender lately...and that is a good thing. My pipe tobacco journey has been a rewarding experience, not for this review but this is a truly wonderful hobby that promotes relaxation, thought and the ability to reward the senses with a natural hobby that is steeped in history and tradition. Uhle's is the pinnacle of Burley (well I may not be qualified to say that given my limited expeience with it but compared to others I have tried the Uhle blends are never flat or tasteless, nor are the overly flavored.They have a true talent for blending and flavoring tobaccos and are masters of the art. Blend 300 has a wonderfully sweet tin aroma that smells like Parliment cigarette's with a light vanilla honey aroma. I hate to compare it to cigarettes' but that is what I was a initially hit with. ( I never smoked cigarette's but every relative and friend I had growing up somked and this is what the packs of unsmoked cigarettes smelled like...with a sweet vanilla and honey added). The flavor of this tobacco is really fantastic. The topping/casing is masterfully applied, to really brings out the flavor of the Burley and Cavendish. Toasty, nutty burley with a chocolate sweetness. Brown sugar walnuts and hazelnuts are also present from the synchornous melange of the two tobacco's. There is also a Turkish/Oriental like woodyness to the smoke that is somewhat surprising given the blend. The bowl is not overly complex nor does it change much throughout the smoke. A consistent flavorful smoke, a truly classic tobacco blend. Great with a cup of coffee first thing or with a glass of wine as you wind down the day.

Although 00 is my favorite Uhle's Burley, 300 is not too far behind. They are similar but there is an addition hint of honey in 300. I wondered what the added flavoring was as I smoked it a couple of years ago and now I know. Think of Mac Baren's Navy Flake with less steam pressing and in a cube cut form. Yep, then you'd have 300.

I split a 1.5 oz sample with a friend, so this review is based on just .75 oz or so.

Honey-Hive flavoring... well, ok, if they say so. I've tasted more honey in other tobaccos - it was quite faint in this one, and I'm not even sure it was honey. There was a slightly sweet quality to the cube cut burley, and that sweetness was not what I associate with straight burleys. On the other hand, Uhle's classifies this one as an aromatic, so their definition of same is considerably tighter than my own.

I enjoyed this one as a straight smoke. As with the Perettis BCP I just reviewed, I doubt this will be more than an occasional smoke, but it was nice. The flavor was never overbearing, and this one accepted some overpuffing with hardly more than a whimper. Very gentlemanly blend, with the usual burley nuttiness in every puff. I preferred the additional sweetener in their Perfection Plug but this one is geared toward the more natural side, based on my small sample. I recommend everyone interested in burley try this one, as I find myself constantly amazed at the nuances inherent in many burley blends. That leaf is quite the chameleon at times and at others, quite the pied piper. This is a good example.

Blend 300 is the chicken soup of pipe tobaccoes. Like the old joke says, "It couldn't hurt!"

There is a lot written on this website about a "desert island" smoke, and which blend one would wish to have. Personally, if I were marooned on a desert island, even after 35 tears of puffing, I'd choose Mary Anne and a pack of Luckies over ANY pipe tobacco.

But if I were doing paperwork, stuck in traffic, bored, undecided, watching a baseball game, mowing grass, surfing the Web...or any of the more likely predicaments to beset modern man...Blend 300 would be what I would reach for. Irrespective of one's preference, I doubt there is a true pipe smoker out there who would dump out the pale gray ash of 300 and not feel he (or she) has not had a decent smoke.

The "honey hive" flavoring is barely noticeable, adding just the right sweetness. The Burleys are both creamy and nutty...and it all comes together tasting like TOBACCO!

Highest accolades!

Inspired by TallPuffO'Burley's recent glowing review, I excavated a small batch of this, dated 2006, from my cellar.

Blend 300 is indeed good.

I concur with the other reviewers who advise not putting too much focus on the so-called Honey-Hive flavouring. It's applied very lightly. And very skilfully in my view. The purpose of the topping in this case is simply to take the harsh edge off of the burley.

Blend 300 is NOT a flavour bomb. Rather it's more like a full dose of burley goodness. With all that comforting reassuring quality, great natural aroma of burley, and deep nutty flavour that builds over time.

Initially I thought I'd made a mistake by loading it in my lightweight Chacom Pot, with its super wide 0.95-inch chamber. The tobacco took 6 lights to get going, which might try the patience of most puffers. But I light slowly and take small draws, never more than 3 puffs per light to avoid tongue burn.

So what if it took me a minute to get the thing going! The smoke lasted 1.5 hours, so that initial minute was a very small price to pay IMHO. And once it got going, it burned beautifully and very cool without effort.

My strongest recommendation is NOT to chase after the flavour on this one. It's mild at first, but builds steadily. And once it's under way, the smoke is very satisfying with no effort required. Just take your time and let the flavour come to you.

A top-notch burley offering. In the same world class as the Peretti burleys.

There's not a lot I can say other than to refer you to the prior reviewer's comments with which I am in wholehearted agreement. The honey flavoring is in just the right amount so as to allow the tobacco taste to come through. I might add that this is a great tobacco to smoke outdoors as it stays cool and smokes quite dry. Perfect for smoking in an old Kaywoodie or cob while playing catch with my son on a summer evening, or as a post-lunch treat while haplessly casting for muskies. Highly recommended.

Very similar to Perfection Plug Burley in presentation: a classic cube cut of medium brown burley. The charring light is very sweet, but absent any bite or heat. The true light brings exactly what's promised: a smooth smoking burley/Cavendish blend with natural honey, molasses and light vanilla notes. I suppose this blend is what happens when you mix Perfection Plug with a bit of Cavendish and a touch more flavoring - and its glorious. In fact, it's everything most modern burley/Cavendish blends are not: dry-smoking, natural-tasting, and clean-burning. Both the smoker and those in the room will be pleased.

For its type, four enthusiastic stars. One of the best aromatics I have tasted. The U.S. has a treasure trove of outstanding aromatics with boutique houses such as Uhle's, Pipeworks & Wilke, and Peretti, just to name a few. Do your taste buds a favor, get a bit off the beaten path, and try them. You won't regret it.

A great tasting Burley blend. Earthy with lesser notes of cocoa and nuts. The honey topping is very light adding a nice sweetness. Can't taste the Black Cav. It's a very simple smoke which can become a little tiring unless you're a real Burleyphile. A slow burning, long lasting smoke. I'll be using this as a blender and I think it'll make some first rate VaBurs and BurPers.

Mild to medium in body and taste. Very mild in flavoring. Burns best if the cubes are lightly crushed after drying.

This was my first time smoking a cube cut and the experience threw me a little. Something about the way the air rushes through the bowl, just doesn't feel as heavy or full bodies as the ribbon cut I'm used to, though eventually the bowl packs down into a more familiar smoke.

That said, it wasn't a memorable smoke in any way for me. Which is probably due to my candy slanted tastes for aromatics.

If I could give the blend 2.5 stars, I would.

I find it a bit bitey and it can burn a bit hot.

The cube cut is great for outdoor smoking.

Strongly recommend not tamping, and not packing it either, just gravity feed it loosely in the bowl.

A small amount burns for a long time.

I think PS Cube Cut is fairly similar, less expensive, and has the same overall characteristics... this might have a teeny bit more burley in it.

By the way, I love burley blends, and would reach for Edgeworth or Prince Albert Choice over this. Just MHO. I don't like the casing, and I am not a big fan of cube cuts either.

This blend just didn't do it for me. I tasted very little honey at all. I did however get a toasted burley flavor. The tobacco was top notch as I have come to expect from Uhle's. I just can't get past the fact that it didn't taste like honey at all to me. The pouch aroma is very nice, I just wished it tasted like it smelled in the pouch. The room note is nothing spectacular but is also not offending. In conclusion it missed the mark for me by not giving a honey taste. I won't be picking up another pouch. Might be worth a try if you like a very mild aromatic.

It looks like I will be the first reviewer to offer a dissenting opinion of this blend. Others have found the ?honey ?hive? flavoring light and the casing slight. I don?t totally disagree. The honey flavor wasn?t overwhelming but it was pretty much all I could taste and it was constant throughout the bowls I smoked. For me it muted, if not masked, any true and honest burley flavor that my palate and I were searching for. We were trying to find ?nutin? honey? but all we found was honey. Make no mistake, though, this is a quality blend by a long established B&M. I have no doubt I?ll be one of the few reviewers who post a negative review.

A cigarette is to be smoked. A cigar is to be enjoyed. A pipe is to be savored.

I rate this blend 6.8 out of 10.

This is a fabulous cubed Burley blend in the fine tradition of classic American blends. This is the epitome of old-fashioned pipe tobacco. If you at all enjoy Pease's Barbary Coast, then you must try this fine tobacco. In my opinion, it is a superior example of what good Burley should be.

The quality of the leaf is excellent. Nice smallish cubes with some light and dark flake that packs well and burns effortlessly. All the nutty/creamy Burley flavor you could want with none of the bitterness. The casing is very slight - just enough to gently sweeten the Burley and enhance the fragrance. I can almost taste cinnamon and brown sugar in the background. The room aroma will never offend anyone.

This tobacco is one of the best I have smoked over the years and certainly at the top-of-the-class for Burleys. I would really like to see more folks try Uhle's tobaccos. They are a small shop that turns out really great product in the fine American tradition (although they have some Latakia blends that are really excellent as well).

I have to give credit where credit is due. Uhle's Blend #300 has become my new "go to" smoke.

Now I know some of you might see "Honey-Hive flavoring" and commence to shudder but I really must say it is quite delightful. Not sickeningly sweet and cloying like you might suspect, I would describe it as almost crisp and clean. On first light an almost ethereal whisper of honey emanates from the bowl. This soon settles into a solid, slighty sweet and nutty burley flavor. It burns evenly right to the bottom of the bowl. I would suggest to any burley lovers or someone looking for a light aromatic to give this blend a try. I am also quite proud of it being a "local" blend (Uhle's is based in Milwaukee, I'm in Appleton, WI.) Thanks for reading!
