If you smoke this straight, you'll find it rather bitter and harsh with no sweetness, with a woody flavor and a mild hint of cedar. I did smoke this in a pipe with an exceeding small bowl and for a quick, short smoke, it wasn't bad, but on its own, it's difficult to recommend. If you're a pure burley smoker, you won't be satisfied. As a mixer, it can be used to good effect, as many blends with white burley can attest. That's the real reason to buy this. I give it two stars, probably deserves two and half stars as a mixer. As for smoking it straight, one star is plenty.

Bought this for blending. Found it to be very low quality. Burns nicely, but tastes sour and flat -- like dirty gym socks.

Put some in the oven on 200 degrees for about three hours, which turned it dark brown and improved things tremendously.

There must be better burleys out there. Don't waste your money.

I love Burley. I love C&D, but this tastes like smoking a brown paper bag. Very poor quality low grade burley. A real disapointment and IMHO a total waste of money. I bought 2 lbs of it and a threw away 1.85 lbs of it.

I am reviewing several C+D blending tobaccos as a precursor to some blending experiments. I know not many people blend, but these reviews may provide some hints to those wanting to do so.

Definitely the blending base of the lot. This tobacco is very bland and seems to have strength primarily in burning characteristic - very cool and no bite. Just a slight almost cedar like flavor and aroma.
