Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

It packs well, stays lit, and is a very cool, consistent smoke all the way to the bottom - no bite or moisture. Nutty with a molasses flavor and a little cocoa. I can see this being a decent starter burley for someone who has never tried the genre, and I can certainly see it being a regular rotation blend. A really good work and all day play smoke that may not be complex, but will satisfy your wants for OTC burleys.

This Match is very close to the original. I spent a weekend comparing the two versions. The original seemed a little fuller, deeper in the molasses taste, and that's the only difference I can tell. The cut and look of the tobacco is the very same. The more I smoke it, the better I like it. In a blind taste test, it would be very hard to tell which was which.

I gave four stars to the original.

I decided to try the 'grandpa classics' of the pipe tobacco world. Stuff like Prince Albert, Half and Half, and Edgeworth among others. To my dismay the original Edgeworth line had been discontinued but I heard there was an almost exact match by Sutliff, so I went online and got myself some.

I will be getting more.

This stuff is a little strange but darned good! It smells like chocolate out of the bag and made my mouth water. The cube cut is something that I had never seen before and didn't quite know what to do with, but I loaded my pipe as is and was surprised at just how well the little chunks burned. It isn't overpowering or complicated in taste, being just a chocolate sweetness with some walnut. No bite, no fuss, really tasty flavors. Now I want another bowl!

I was recently gifted about a half oz of the original ERR, and now I am smoking my way through about an oz of the Sutliff match. This match is very close. The original may have a slightly more pronounced bass note, but I would be challenged to tell which was which if smoking from two unmarked baggies. As a match this is a 4 star review.

The smoke is a burley forward mild Vabur with a slight mellow sweet note that is hard to identify. It is molasses perhaps. It is good but not very exciting. It presents as the OTC you wish you could buy in pouches at the grocery store and filling station. The flavor is consistent for me, and it had good light/burn characteristics.

It has smoked cool and dry for me in a variety of pipes, and I suspect it would benefit from a dedicated pipe with no ghosts to intrude on the mild flavor.

As a blend this is a 3 star smoke. If you enjoy this type of blend, get some now, and you will not be disappointed. If you need a flavor bomb to satisfy you, look elsewhere.

I have never tried the original ERR'd, so I have no point of comparison between the two blends. I likely never would have tried this, but our esteemed Mr. Inks got tired of me bashing Sutliffe and was determined to change my mind. This is one of the three blends he sent me to do so.

Overall, I did like this blend. It is an easy going burley smoke along the lines of Lane's BLWB, but substantially better IMO. It won't bite and will give you an enjoyable smoke when your mind may be elsewhere. This one won't spellbind you with complexity while you contemplate changing flavors. It is a codger burley, plain and simple, and a good one at that. It has the nutty type of profile one would expect from a burley that is amplified by the light topping. Don't let that lead you to believe that this is a sugary flavorless Aromatic though. There is plenty of burley adding some body to this one letting you know that you are indeed smoking tobacco.

I wouldn't put this up there with the comparable Uhle's blends, but I do recommend it. It is a great smoke at a great price.

Based on a sample received from a friend, perhaps 3/4 - 1 oz. Another ERR'd match blend - how boring. It's been done to death, and never correctly.

But I smoked a bowl of this and was so intrigued that I trudged down to the cellar (yep - my cellar is in the cellar!) and grabbed a small jar of the real deal for comparison. The look was a bit different - the ERR'd was darker and the plugs were smaller. But the aroma was the similar cocoa and nut. The darker color could have been age, as my ERR'd is all at least 7-10 years old.

Is this the same as ERR'd? Well, blindfolded I'd have a great deal of trouble distinguishing them. This had the old familiar flavor of nutty burley with the slight cocoa finish that made it slightly sweet. It didn't bite the tongue and was consistent in flavor throughout the bowl. Almost zero complexity, but that great flavor to the end. No ashy taste or harshness, unless overpuffed. This is close enough to ERR'd that any differences are largely irrelevant to me. I smoked a bowl of ERR'd right after I finished this and noticed no glaring differences, while being uncertain about different nuances. May have been some present or it may have been in my noodle.

Four stars for an Altadis blend - is the sky falling? :) But if this sample is any indication, they nailed this match blend where so many others have failed. Four resounding stars!

This is the first of several "Match" tobaccos I'll be reviewing. I've recently purchased five of them from P&C, they are: Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, Revelation, Country Doctor, Barking Dog and Model. Since I've never had Edgeworth before, and since I'm the most curious about that one, I've decided to start with it first.

Let me say, right off the bat, I really enjoyed this tobacco. The choco-chunks of burley and additives really hit the spot. The flavors, a little bit of chocolate, molasses and, for me, some black licorice. I guess I would classify this blend as a semi-aromatic rather than a full aro. This baccy really worked well in my MM Country Gent (with filter. In fact, that worked out so well I intend on smoking all of these match blends in a Country Gent).

As many of you know by now, I've become a real purist, scorning most tobaccos that have large amounts of "spicing", but, this blend is less saturated than many current day offerings, in fact, I don't believe they blend'em like this any more (this is like smoking history). I can see why many lament the loss of the original, for if it tasted anything like this, it's a true loss to the pipe smoking world.

I've never had the original, and that's a shame, but I really appreciate the fact that a match for this is still being blended—kudos to whomever has decided to do this, and, keep it going! I'm looking forward to trying the other blends. I give this one a strong three stars (I even briefly thought of giving it four, but, hey, it's still early in the game).

Keep on piping!

This is a four start blend for me not because of what is was but what it is now. Milder blends and some aro's are looked down upon by some as not having huge Wagnerian flavor profiles that define the milestone BIG blends. I will offer that we are burning stuff in a small chamber and huffing that smoke directly into our faces. While I make this a hobby it never ceases to amaze me. I suggest to the reader that defining each level of appreciation is art and science and finding balance is key. Maybe in my next life I'll smoke the labels off of CatsPaw ropes and plugs but for now I can enjoy this tasty blend all day long and never for a moment fake my enjoyment of it.

No nonsense easy to pack. Burns effortlessly and cleanly leaving white ash. Classic burley nuttiness in abundance that really remains consistent the whole smoke. Not complex and on the mild side. As good, if not better than SWR. Great in cob or briar. Not to be missed by Burley lovers.

Edgeworth RR Match … Back when the original was popular, I never remember trying ERR, or for that matter never even seeing it for sale in my area, so the best I can do here is talk about what I found in smoking the new match product.

While browsing the P& tobacco listings, I found several match blends that I could not resist trying, one being for Union Leader and the other this one. I must say I'm not disappointed with either one.

The tin/bag aroma is pleasant Tobacco/cocoa mix. Comes as easy to manage smaller cube cut of a mostly dark brown color. Now having smoked at the very least 4oz of this stuff, I come to see this blend as a mild and very worthwhile smoke, best enjoyed when I have some time to sip and taste, not because a more rapid puffing rate produces bite, but the flavor wants to drop-off as the heat increases, thusly missing all the varied flavors the blend has to offer. I did find some cocoa taste in the smoke, bite was no issue and a good burn was had without much fuss. But IMO I found this tobacco a bit low on it's "nic" level.

Not quite my cup of tea but this is a very faithful match to the last iteration of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed by Lane Ltd. In fact, I would say it is better than Lane made it in terms of cut, less larger chunks and a better moisture level, not as dry. The flavor and aroma are almost identical from what I can remember. Aside from the mild cocoa note there is a somewhat unpleasant characteristic earthiness with hints of black pepper and an almost cardboard/paper quality especially when puffed too hard. Aside from those issues, I have to emphasize how well it has been reformulated in respect to its predecessor. If you like typical non-aromatic cocoa cased burley blends i.g. Sir Walter Raleigh Regular, Mac Baren Golden Xtra, this is up there with them.

I am welcomed by thick cubes and ribbons of tobacco with a very present cocoa smell. At first light, the molasses and cocoa is the first thing I taste, afterwards I get some burley nuttiness with a faint anise/liquorice finish. It's a mild tasting tobacco with a casing that overtakes for the most part. My biggest complaint is the fact that in mid smoke the pipe gets clogged from the casing which for me is a big turnoff. I really wanted to like this tobacco, oh well... another disappointment.

Well, it's been almost 40 years since I had the original, but this "match" brings back nice memories, it's close. I'm typically not a Burley fan, as it's hard on my tongue, but this was no problem. It smoked cool and easy. As I smoked , the flavor brings back memories of "Pencil Sharping's" , it's actually very pleasant. This was a nice moment back in time , but,......I do have other blends that I crave more than this today.

I have been casting around to find a replacement for Sir Walter Raleigh regular since I have been disappointed with the current production of that blend. Somewhere I read that this is similar.

The cut of ERR Match is similar to SWR, but the flavor is not. I cannot entice an earthy tone from ERR like used to come from SWR. The burn of this ERR is very much like SWR, but the mouth feel is lighter, less substantial.

I do not mean to imply there is something wrong with this blend in and of itself. It behaves well, burns relatively slowly, doesn't bite, and has a pleasant flavor. I like the cut of this blend. It is mild enough (the nicotine level is fairly low) and has enough interest to be an all-day smoke for some but not for me.

I will not allow my disappointment at this being no replacement for what I remember of SWR influence my rating. Certainly this is a worthy blend and could appeal to many who like a light burley, lightly flavored. Recommended.

small cubes and a few crushed plugs. smells lightly of cocoa in the bag. very easy to pack and simple to light. burns cool even when puffed quickly. first puffs tastes a little like sir walter raleigh but the the mild topping burns off fast. one third of the way into the bowl you are rewarded with the taste of light molasses and plain old burley goodness that stay with you until the end. i did not pick up on the anise that some users stated. i do recommend this but i am not sure if i would buy a large quantity of this or a big ol' tub of sir walter raleigh. it would depend on which one was cheaper.

I first encountered this blend about three years ago. Lil Brown was selling it under the Consolidated label as Ready Rub Edgeworth.

I received a package today wondering if it was different from the Consolidated version.

There are two problems with this blend: it does not really taste like the ERR of old; it does not taste of anything very much.

I am going to keep it for a couple of years, let it dry out (it is sticky fresh out of the bag) and try it again. But for now, there are better blends.

Update Tried this blend out in one of my old Rocky Briars, and something clicked. Though not exactly like the famed Edgeworth of yore, this match blend turns out to be excellent in its way. Update to three stars.

If I smoked Edgeworth back in the day, I don't remember it. In general, though, I agree with SopwithCamel's review -- basically a decent generic burley mixture, with hints of cocao upfront and a little anise towards the bottom. Burns a little on the hot/fast side for me, hence two instead of three stars, but no bite.

I ordered four ounces of this from Cup o Joe's, to see if it was in fact like Edgeworth Ready Rubbed.

When it showed up, it looked like crushed plug, much like ERR and Sir Walter Raleigh.

It had the faint smell of cocoa, just as I recalled.

Upon lighting it is very similar to Edgeworth RR. It simmers well in the pipe, and I find it to be a pleasant and enjoyable experience. As Briar Rabbit pointed out in his review of Edgeworth, it does taste a bit like spicey pecans. The cocoa undertone is present throughout, and I found it highly enjoyable

Towards the end of the bowl some liquorice flavor peeks in, and there is a gentle molasses sweetness that pervades my taste during the whole bowl.

Up close, the room note is pleasant, but after leaving the room and returning, it is a more neutral pipe tobacco smell.

Puffed slowly and gently, it is a pleasant and inexpensive companion. It is excellent with a cup of black coffee.

If you miss ERR, drop six bucks and see if this makes you happy. It is certainly worth a try. Having smoked it a while, I have become very fond of it. My next order will be for a pound.
