Lane Limited Lane Limited Ready Rubbed

For years, smokers revered the dark blue tin and pouch of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, widely considered one of the smoothest burley blends ever. Toward the end of its run it was made by Lane Limited, and Lane production was acclaimed, but Lane lost the right to use the name. Due to huge demand, Lane is bringing back this blend under the new name Lane Limited Ready Rubbed. An old favorite has returned.

I never smoked the original Edgeworth, so I really can't compare this reboot to it. However, I can say that it is a pretty good blend to scratch that burley itch that I seem to have all the time. It smells like one might expect a codger burley blend to smell in the pouch: nutty, sweet, and comforting. I am not a fan of the cube cut simply because it expands so much after lighting, but it provides a long, smooth smoke. It doesn't have much nicotine compared to other burley blends, but it had enough to satisfy me. It has a deep molasses flavor with notes of anise peeking out around mid-bowl. Left no dottle and burnt to white ash. There are other burley blends I like much better, but sometimes the best thing to do is keep it simple. Load up a cob, pour a cup of coffee, and enjoy this blend for what it is.

Upon opening I was greeted with a delicious chocolate smell. It was quite fresh and moist to the touch.

After smoking the first bowl, up to the now 10 bowls it feels like Im smokin hot, damp air regardless if it's directly out of the tin or dried for up to 3 days. The taste is extremely mild, sweet caramel taste, reminiscent of cupcake. if unfocused the taste isn't noticeable.

There is no discernable tobacco taste which is what I really do not like about this. Im sure its there judging by other reviews, maybe my palate is toast as I've been smoking pease jackknife plug and solani aged burley flake like a chimney.

The room note smells really, really good though - a mix between a pancake batter and cake. The taste isn't bad, but sadly not what i'd call pleasant. each bowl the pipe needs cleaned 1/2 way through, and then again once finished otherwise you'll get some leakage.

I suppose if you like aromatics this would be great, though for me it doesn't fit the bill. I was expecting something somewhat similar to Walter Raleigh. Surprisingly I taste little to no burley, basically this has no kick. And I like kick..

Long story short I prefer the Walter Raleigh aromatic by a country mile and my tastebuds need calibrated.

I got this one bc I liked the original when I bought it.

It's pretty much the same as the original blend, but is missing something. The cut is different for one thing. The burn is the same, but the flavor is lacking somehow. I bought 4 pouches of this, bc I was sure I'd like it. I'm not so sure anymore. In fact, I gave it away after smoking it it for a week.

If you never tried the old version, try this one. It's good on its own merit. I think I was expecting it to be perfectly the same. It does smoke well, and has a good flavor of burley and cocoa notes. Easy all day smoke.

After reading jimmy inks' review of a slightly newer incarnation, I am tempted to try it again soon. (The man knows his baccy) I really did like the original, it was kinda like PA with more chest hair.

I smoked the ERR in college in the early 70's. I tried the ERR match blend and was underwhelmed. Given the reviews of this product I was eager to try it. (I called the factory and inquired about smaller packaging. Nix.) LRR was also a disappointment. I'm not going to claim to remember every nuance from 40+ years ago, but this product isn't even a suggestion (my opinion). The color seems darker, the tobacco has a sharp dried fruit smell. I found it on the hot side as well. On the plus side it does have a pleasant room note. Maybe it needs to breath?
