The various forms of burleys are very earthy, nutty, fairly woody, and mildly sugary, with a small molasses note. The coffee takes a light lead over the dark cocoa, and deep cream toppings. Though the toppings sublimate the burleys to a delicately moderate extent, they also work synergistically to produce a harmoniously consistent, creamy smooth and mildly sweet taste from start to finish. Those rather rich flavors translate to the short lived, pleasant after taste and room note. The strength and nic-hit are just past the mild mark, while the taste is a step past the center of mild to medium. No chance of bite, harshness or rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace. Hardly leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An easy going all day experience as your morning turns to afternoon and evening.
This blend is classified as Aromatic, I disagree but what does it really matter.
Blend arrived in a nice Mylar bag, with a mason jar lid label. 2 oz packaged neatly.
Upon opening the blend smells of rich coffee notes, and cocoa/chocolate, slightly wet but not overly goopy.
Let this dry 10-15 minutes prior to smoking, overall great nutty burley flavored and this should be paired with coffee. The KBV listing for this recommends a great technique that helps to bring out the flavor in this blend.
Smokes easily, straightforward burley with some additional flavoring. Glad I got another 2 ounces of this will most likely be my weekend early morning smoke.
This is outstanding! Not normally a burley guy, but this has a nutty and slightly chocolate flavor to it and the smoking experience is definitely better with coffee, with cream or black is fantastic! A must try..
The name suits this blend perfectly. This is a morning blend, no doubt about it. The blend is dry, with a chocolatey bag note. The taste is a mild coffee, however, and should be paired with your bean beverage of choice. The casing does wax and wane throughout the smoke, but neither overpowers nor abandons the quality burley that makes this blend. Well done Ken!
Pipe Used: Savinelli 313 Mattone Prince

From the sample I received, Burley Morning Pipe was on the wet side, but not overly so for an aromatic. It’s ribbon cut with some larger chunks here and there, and vary in different shades of brown ranging from light to dark. The tin note is creamy, toasty coffee, as well as nuttiness, spices, and a little cocoa.
Upon lighting, I am greeted by the cream and coffee topping that is added. It’s creamy, bold, sweet, rich, and impressively authentic. The description says after three minutes the Burleys will shine through and this is true. They are nutty, earthy, very round, and sport notes of molasses and cocoa. The retrohale does bring out the dark roast notes, which also matches the given description. The cocoa is turned up a notch at this point as well. Once the topping burns off a little and the Burley shine through, the two work in harmony to compliment each other’s flavor profiles. The flavor stays consistent throughout the bowl. I highly recommend pairing this with your favorite cup of coffee for your first pipe of the day.
Burley Morning Pipe smoked cool and dry, despite the moisture present in the blend. There was no edge or harsh spots present. It required very few relights and left very little moisture behind. The nicotine content is comfortably noticeable, but not strong enough to over stay it’s welcome. An all day smoke for sure. 4 out of 4 stars.
From the name, you might be expecting a Burley version of EMP but this goes in the opposite way of that famous English.
The bag note is cocoa/coffee forward like a mocha. The ribbons are combination of browns and blacks. The moisture content is fairly high, but it is smokeable without drying time. It takes a couple of lights to get get going well and a couple of relights depending on your smoking pace.
The taste is coffee forward, with some sweet creamy chocolate notes in the background. The tobaccos come through as a strong base with a dark bread taste a little like toast to me. The overall taste reminds me of coffee cake. The burleys in here carry a nice level of nicotine which sneaks up on me when I smoke it because its a little unexpected behind the aromatics.
It pairs great with coffee in the morning and could be an all day smoke for an aromatic lover. My wife likes the roomnote so it has also been one for me to smoke in the car on road-trips.
It reminds me quite a bit of one of my favorites, Corn Cob Pipe and a Button Nose from C&D.
Overall, I found I prefer the Burlier version due to being able to taste more tobacco taste in it.
