Curious about burleys I will begin my quest with:
-2oz of John Patton Storm Front (burley and cigar leaf)
-2oz 4Noggins Weybridge (burley, virginia, perique)
-2oz Prince Albert (straight burley)...curiosity got the better of me...gotta try one of these OTCs sooner or later.

Seek and ye shall find. Hey, if you don't like Storm Front at first, try it in a cob. That was my experience. Kind of a harmony thing goin' on.

Thanks for the tip.
Don't actually have a cob in my collection. Shall have to get one now. Maybe the MacArthur which I can also use as a croquet mallet.
After I try these out I will post my 2 cents about them.
I asked Rich to throw in a sample of the Sutliff ERR match which he graciously agreed to.
I must admit aside from Mixture 79 I have never met a tobacco I didnt enjoy on some level....anxious to check out these American burleys.

I'm not very experienced with burley blends, and I haven't tried the three that you purchased. The description and reviews sound great though!! I have heard really nice things about Uhle's and LJ Peretti's burley blends. I've been meaning to give them a go

So Psmith, what did you think of John Patton's Storm Front? I find this to be a blend I can smoke 2 to 3 times a day.
Now give John Patton's Crossroads a try with your next 4Noggins order.


KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Weybridge is a good enough blend. PA on the other hand. I smoke nearly every day. It tastes good and has excellent smoking qualities.

I'll be the dissenting opinion here - as a fan of burley blends, I thoroughly enjoy Carter Hall, and tend to pick it over PA in the OTC category. PA is pretty great mind you, I just find Carter Hall to be better. Exceptionally mellow, full of the rich, smooth nuttiness that only a burley blend can give you. I find it to be a bit one-dimensional, but for my intents that's absolutely perfect. I like to smoke it daily and not think about it, so it's perfect.

It's got Virginias present, but by present I mean there's maybe a dozen ribbons sprinkled on top of the 14 ounces of burley in the big can.

I prefer Carter Hall as well. It's still my favorite drug store burley. It has a subtle topping on it but it's there specifically to enhance the room note.  98% of the flavor is that of burley tobacco. Most of the other drugstore blends in CH's class are a bit more flavored.

D&R's Two Timer is a very good burley blend too.

As far as the OTC Burley tobacco's I too prefer Carter Hall. But I will still push Storm Front to those Burley lovers that are looking for something a bit different. Two Cube cut Burley tobacco's with just the right amount of cigar leaf. You won't be disappointed.

I agree with Storm Front. It's pretty good on its own, and delicious in a cob. Can't beat it!

If you like Carter Hall you need to try H & H Midtown Chatham Manor. Like Ch only better.

The new lane limited ready rubbed isn't bad either. Although, that may not count as a otc blend anymore.

Hi fellas,

Just got my parcel on Friday. Took about 3 weeks to arrive. So far I've tried the Storm Front, Edgeworth RR and Prince Albert.

After I have had more smokes of each in various pipes I will write my thoughts on them. Biggest surprise so far has been the Edgeworth. Smells exactly like chocolate to me. Never expected that.

Yup. And the PA also has a strong note of cocoa for me. Not flavored mind you, just what I pick up. The edgeworth is a bit more robust.
