A pipe tobacco for Burley lovers, Amphora's Burley Blend is an old-school mixture of burley and Virginia leaf, adding to that just a touch of dark-fired for increased sweetness and spice. It makes for a well-balanced blend that's sure to pique the interest of those fond of burley blends.

Just got my first pouch today. Out of the box, out of the pouch, into a well known Savinelli billiard. Moisture level is good, it’s a broken up flake that might benefit from further rubbing out. I was happy with it as is as it loaded easily. Took a small extra effort to get lit but once lit it had a steady burn. Good Burley flavor and strength as well as taste and aroma. Enjoyable from the first and uniform through the bowl. Interestingly, my favorite Mac Baren tobacco to date. I’m a hardcore Burley fan and this is most satisfactory. No bite evident at all. I’ll add more as I progress through the three pouches purchased, but so far, I sense a winner. It’s a very straightforward uncomplicated smoke and if you like Burley you should like this one. There’s a bit of Virginia sweetness in it but not too much. Updates later.

Pouch smell has a semi-sweet whole grain smell with dark cocoa, some wood tones and perhaps a tad of molasses. This is similar to HH Burley Flake with a similar but lesser woody notes to the smoke and the addition of the casing makes it a smoother smoke with absolutely no bite. Despite being a burley blend and supposedly some dark-fired leaf added I really didn't notice the nicotine. It's so reminiscent of HH Burley Flake I wish Mac Baren had developed it into something a little more unique. More sweetness would have been to my liking. One could think of this blend as sort of a hybrid between HH and Golden Extra with a bit more sweetness to round out the character more though it is not a sweet tobacco. A straight forward classic style ready-rubbed burley tobacco that should be appreciated by burley aficionados.
