To be honest: When I ordered a tin each of Torben Dansk's Burley, Burley Maduro and U.S. Kentucky I was expecting some of those rather sweet, cocoa/chocolate-y Burleys that are the only kind of Burley you'll be able to get ahold over here..., think Solani's Aged Burley Flake or Nasvhille County by HU - rather sweet Burleys! Not saying it's a bad thing, I love both of them, but what I'm looking for at this very moment, are Burleys like those C&D uses... earthy, barely sweet, if at all, with that slight tart-nuttiness and no chocolate at all - natural Burley, ye' know? 😉

Opening the Burley Maduro I was very happy with what was in the tin! Only a very mild note of chocolate tickles your nose, but moreso the rich, charming qualities of a natural and stout Burley! Earthy-dry, woodsy, with this delicate and mild nuttiness and barely sweet - love it! You can sense there's a hint of cocoa-sauce, yet exceptionally mild applied! The description of "the_german" as "wine-like" I find very fitting!

What's present in the smoke is the rich and full-bodied, earthy and mildly nutty character of a exceptionally tasty burley, which also has a smooth "toastiness" to it due to the processing. There's a bare hint of dark cocoa (think 70-80% cocoa chocolate bar!), that also imparts a slight sweetness to round rough edges and keep things in balance - but it's very slight and light, only a background-nuance to me! It also offers this slight sharpness I love about burleys.

Yup... this is exactly the kind of Burley I was looking for! And I do know it's intended to be blended... but - just as the_german - I can't help but to smoke this sublime weed as a standalone smoke! It's stout, rich in aroma and very pleasing on the palate. You like stout, natural Burley? You'll feel home with this one! 😉

Ps.: Prefer small, yet preferably, but not neccesarily wide bowls, say 5-15 minutes smokes! A small cob, a shag-pipe.. rub the long ribbons a tad for better packing, and enjoy a short, yet intense flavor experience, even if you're not that much used to the Vitamin-N!

May 23, 2023 Medium to Strong None Detected Very Full Unnoticeable
It has been almost 15 years since I joined this site and never could I have imagined that I would be able to try at least 400 different blends over this time. A large part was due to my affiliation with the San Diego Pipe Club until I moved out of state. The esteemed VP of the club sent me some generous samples to continue my “research”. What better note than to review this outstanding Burley blend from Torben Dansk. The tin note (ziplock) had a very distinctive smell that is quite pleasant but not sure if it is the natural tobacco or a casing added though the description says no flavoring. I filled my corn cob with long thick strands of this fine weed and commenced to light up. Full tasting right from the start and the taste stayed consistent throughout the duration. This is a great strong blend in both taste and somewhat nicotine and yes it would be a great blending tobacco but have immensely enjoyed the four generous pipefuls I have smoked and have 2 more left that I will finish this afternoon. A really great natural tasting tobacco and I purposely chose this blend for my 400th as my friend and VP has become a Burleyphile😊 and who knows I may cross over to the other side also with blends like this.
