The letters stand for "Over Seas Special". We created this blend for our many friends who were "over there" during WWII. The always popular flavor of three Burleys with a touch of Flake Virginia add up to a mild and cool smoke.

There are almost no burleys to which I have been exposed which I didn't like. OSS is that one burley, unequivocally. Pleasnat pouch aroma, like BLWB. Packs well, with little spring. But, from the first bowl, the smoke was harsh. There was a mild, very mild flavor, seemingly like hot air. The taste reminds of the lesser grades of drugstore polybagged tobaccos. It burns well, a little wetter than I like While I have no problem with them, I would prefer PA as a standard go-to blend. This OSS is just too sweet and biting. I can hardly believe that this blend was a favorite of American troops overseas. OSS is uncharacteristic of the WWII and later periods. It has no, well, passion as a blend. There are far too many burleys available that provide a more satisfying smoke.
