The burley offers nuts, earth, and a little cocoa and molasses, none of which really stands out. I’m not sure about the topping, but it has a light sweetness and mildly tones down the burley. The nic-hit is very mild. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a consistent flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a rather plain after taste. An all day smoke. Two and a half stars.
Berkeburley was Georgetown Tobacco's greatest seller according to the their long time tobacconist (whose name has long left my poor memory banks). I used to smoke this about once a year until my tin ran out. Just too light for me on a regular basis, but with slow sipping, I could really coax the fine flavor out. Of course, I could also puff on it like a freight train and never get bitten. There was an added something in this one - I think. I compare it favorably to Prince Albert, in a lighter, more refined way.
