Uhle's Crushed White Burley

The same blend of tobaccos as our long favorite Blend #255, only a slight bit less aromatic. Almost a true White Burley - natural taste yet ever so slightly aromatic for grand aroma. You'll like it even if you're a non-aromatic smoker.
Notes: Savory and leafy with a hint of sweetness, the subtle note of licorice in this blend sits lightly on the palette. Ingredients: Cube-cut burley and licorice Cavendish

Not nearly as impressive as Uhle's other burleys that I've smoked (still can't get Blend 00!). The flavoring was decidedly licorice, which sometimes causes problems for me and sometimes not. In this case, it was an antiseptic flavor - very unnatural. Straight burleys often have a slight soapy flavor, and the licorice casing clashed early and often with the soap.

I'm wondering if the casing was applied too conservatively for my personal taste in this one and it makes me wonder if Blend 255 might work better for me. It's worth a shot. This one would likely be a favorite of some due to its subtle flavoring but I found that it disagreed with me. On the other hand, the blend itself was no bully. It packed easily and burned nicely, just as the other Uhle's burleys do. Perhaps others won't be as annoyed as I became with the flavor.
