The burleys offer plenty of nuts, earth, wood, light molasses, cocoa and sourness as the lead components. The Virginias provide some tart and tangy citrus, grass, earth, wood, bread, and light, tangy dark fruit and floralness. They play a secondary role rather than a supporting one. The nutty, earthy, woody, floral, dryly sour and light barbecue, spicy sweet, smoky dark fired Kentucky competes with the Virginias for attention. The strength and taste levels are a couple of steps shy of the medium mark. The nic-hit is a rung behind them. Won’t bite or get harsh,though it has a few small rough edges. This crumble cake is easily broken apart to suit your packing preference, and requires no dry time. Burns cool, clean and a little slow with a mostly consistent nutty, mildly sweet, lightly spicy, and rugged, slightly savory flavor that translates the short lived, pleasant after taste. The room note is tad stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires some relights. Can be an all day smoke for the experienced piper, and very repeatable for those less so. Three and a half stars out of four.

Sutliff Burley is a lot like decaf coffee IMO. This particular blend was so nondescript that I don't want to waste any words on it. I mixed it with some Night Train just to get through it and resented the $11.

I like Burley, it's easy on my mouth and usually full flavored. This is no exception. I've been smoking Classic Burley Cake lately and this fits well by it's side. CBC is smooth, consistent and enjoyable, but sometimes you want something more challenging. JimInks description of this as savory is apt. It's much more full flavored. The first third of the bowl is a bit rough, but in pleasant Burley way. The surprise is the middle third which gets exceptionally smooth and very, very good. I was then shocked when the final third presented the flavor of black tea. Overall a pleasant smoking experience, recommend trying it.

This crumbled to confetti. I gravity filled the pipe and enjoyed. Easy peasey.
