Sutliff Tobacco Company Burley J4

Notes: Burley from Sutliff is a natural blend of 100% burleys long cut, great taste and aroma. It's a mellow ribbon-cut burley with a smooth casing to counteract the typical burley harshness, and a pleasantly soft top note of vanilla. A soft, no-bite experience for the traditional burley smoker. AAA burleys.

This AAA American Burley comes from towns like Harstville, Tennessee and Marion,Kentucky. This isn’t Chinese burley which is being imported to the United States along with other things. This tastes good, and round, and naturally chocolate tasting. The topping is so light that it’s hardly noticeable. You’ll only notice the top note with not a bite given. Smooth and luxurious. Billows of sweet burley goodness. Oh yes, oh yes, this is the Burley you’ve looked for.

Nice cut and broken flake bits along with a relatively high moisture level from the bag. Smells like a sweetened burley, with cocoa and nuts leading the way, with a bit of vanilla topping. Smells pretty natural, aside from the vanilla. The humectant level is a bit high, and I am not sure you could ever get this to dry out fully. After packing and lighting, you are greeted with a traditional burley profile of nuttiness and a nice sweetness, aided by the vanilla topping. As the bowl burns down, a bit more cocoa flavors develop, along with a little spice. I cannot be sure if it’s an additional topping or spice from the dark fired, but at times it has hints of cinnamon. It has a tendency to some roughness, and if pushed, can get very ashy, although it is hard to get to bite. Burns down pretty clean, but does leave some moist dottle. Overall it is a good, simple light vanilla burley, but with a bit more humectant than I prefer. Good, but not great.

Edit: After a year with this blend, I find myself wanting it on a very regular basis. It will actually dry out pretty well, and I find that I often am able to achieve a full bowl’s burn on a single light. Has the “old time pipe” room note that I remember as a kid from family pipers. I prefer it to any of the other OTC “codger burleys,” and it is higher quality and lower cost than any of them. It is now my most smoked blend, and with the taste, burn characteristics, and ridiculously low price, I’m bumping it to 4 stars.

This is an everyday blend. It’s an all-Burley blend that isn’t that expensive. Pleasant at the first notch and pleasant all the way through, this tobacco is not to be missed by the utmost patron. Behind the rich Burley is a rich Vanilla. I would put it as mildly-aromatic. I do enjoy the tobacco’s flavor, which isn’t bitter like most STG. I would recommend this tobacco.
