As this is Lane's BLWB, I'm posting that review for this blend.

No complexity to speak of, besides the molasses and brown sugar sweetness and a little nuttiness. If it does have a coconut topping, the coconut is very mild. I didn't notice a change in the flavor from beginning to end. It burned well, though a little moist, and no bite as the name suggests. A little too light for my personal taste, but I did enjoy it. I'd grade it as a pretty decent OTC because it fits that mold, and I think it was purposely designed that way. A work and play smoke when you just want a pleasant tasting burley that you don't have to think about much. Probably deserves another half star.

Mild None Detected Extremely Mild (Flat) Tolerable to Strong

Man, im gonna be harsh with this one, it was terrible. I really sat here and wanted to give this a good review however I can't find it in my heart to do so, maybe its just me. This had almost no taste or flavor and tasted probably about as good as if I actually ate the tobaccco itself. It had a very dry and almost grill smoke like taste that just kept getting stronger and less and less pleasent as I went along. Long story short, its not for me and I would not suggest this to anyone. Sorry.

If I was a child hiding out behind the shed and trying out Grandpa's pipe for the first time, this would be the ideal mix. This was a lot like smoking steam...the flavor was just nonexistent. The only reason I'm "somewhat recommending" this is the wonderful room-note. It makes great incense but a lousy smoke!

This mild Burley burns well, tastes nice, and smells great,like toasted coconut (to me anyway!). It is very inexpensive, and as with many of Lane's blends, can serve as potpourri for your sock drawer.

It does burn fast,and it can finish wet, so a slow, gentle puffing cadence is best. I find it to be pleasant, but I like my Burley to have more depth and nuttiness than the sweetness this has.

An American tobacco shop classic.

I tried this as a perhaps better alternative to an all day Carter Hall and did not find it to be so. It is exactly what you would expect but not better and I would say flatter than CH. So while OK for sure not the alternative I was looking for. If going fishing all day I would still stick with the CH. But if you want very mile it may be perfect. She does bite if you push her. Also tends to get a bit bitter in the second half.

If your looking for a tobacco with no surprises this is it. Light flavor and very mild you could use it to break the cycle when your on a binge of heavier blends.

This was my first pipe tobacco, and as such I have sentimental memories of it. It was a great first smoke, simply because it let me experiment with my packing technique, my smoking pace and any number of other skills that needed to be honed and it never left me with tongue bite. My only complaint is that it's very run of the mill, and now that I've experimented with so many other wonderful blends, I find it highly unlikely that I will ever come back to Burley Light. While it's great for a beginner, it's very easy to out grow this blend.

This is an extremely mild tobacco. It has an aroma of Cake.

There is no depth to this tobacco, no real taste. It's just a basic burly blend. I usually give this to first time pipe smokers. I have yet to have it bite, even when smoked hot.

I remember my Father's reaction to this blend's name, '. . without a bite, that means it does.' He was right. This bit me, because I was drawing very hard in search of flavor and nicotine; two things this burley has none of. This blend is burley waiting for a casing. From this and Prince Albert, I learned I don't have much lust for straight burley. It is good for what it is, though.(maybe a good blender burley) Just not for me.

Side note. . I bought at the same time BLWB and a couple oz.'s of Tinderbox's Nut and Honey. Seems to me to be BLWB with a fairly strong, not too sweet nut flavor. it's rather good as aromatics go, if weak. I mention this here because I don't see it listed anywhere under T-box or Lane. happy smoke---

This would be a great smoke for someone who wants something plain that tastes and smells great without flavoring additives. I let it air dry a bit before smoking and had no issues with wet-ness after that. Easy to light and keep lit, it is a nice mild "standby" when you want something light but you're not sure what. Since I'm becoming less of an aromatic fan with each passing blend, I blended this (about 60/40) with a vanilla cavendish that I would never again smoke "plain" and the result was wonderful.

Because I do enjoy a pure burley tobacco every now and then, I recently smoked a couple of bowls of this stuff that I stole (with permission, of course) from a friend's pouch. Yep, my suspiscions were correct, this is Lane's Burley Light re-named by the Tinderbox chain. This tobacco was used a few years ago at my pipe club's slow-smoking contest and the winner kept it going in a Peterson for almost an hour and a quarter. So, I suppose that means it stays lit well. I tasted an upscale Prince Albert with perhaps a smidgen more flavoring. This burley tobacco was about an 7 on a scale of 10 as far as burley taste goes. (I give PA a 4). It was not particularly impressive, but it sure was pleasant enough in one of my smaller straight billiards.

If you are a burley lover and don't want to spend an arm and a leg for a smoke, then here you go.

This tobacco is Tinderbox's version of Lane's Burley Light Without a Bite. It is a cube cut, with an attractive bright brown color. The pouch aroma is very sweet, too much so for my tastes, although I have a feeling dedicated aromatic smokers would feel differently. The moisture level is too high, and causes wet smoking and too much leftover dottle if not dried out a bit. I left the lid open overnight on my bail jar and it helped a lot. Lighting is a little harder than average, and the number of relights tends to be higher, even after overnight drying. The taste reflects more of the cavendish content than the burley, and the casing is evident. It has a sweet overtone and not as much nuttiness. As a tobacco, I would classify it more as an aromatic than a burley. I'm giving it a "recommended" rating because it is pretty good as such, and would make a good crossover blend for smokers of aromatics looking for an introduction to a burley blend. As an aside, I should also mention that if you buy this as BLWB, you can find some very good buys on this on the internet. I've seen it for less than $20/lb. (without shipping, of course).
