After reading many posts from newbee asking about tobaccos they are directed to the codger blends here in the States. It got me thinking about what are the codger blends in Ireland, Scottland, England, Wales, France, Gremany, Spain and the other countries.
I know I would like to try codger blends from Ireland, Scottland,Wales and England.
What do ya'll think.

Codger blend from Germany: Exclusiv Royal (Oriental forward that tends to bite if not smoked gently, but tasty)
Codger blend from Hungary: Obester Vanilla (Quality tobacco with a light sweet topping, always a perfect bowl!)

Codger blends in the UK - Condor, St Bruno and Clan, in that order. Each an acquired taste, with Clan being made for those who have been medically declared to have no taste.

Here in Finland some codger blends (or OTCs, rather) are Amphora Red, Clan, Borkum Riff and a few Mac Baren aros.

Borkum Riff is the #1 codger blend in Spain.

Also Amphora, Apollo, and Clan.
Just the opposite of the clean, easy-burning, non-biting, untopped American burley codger blends such as carter hall or prince albert. Personally I like the american ones much, much better.
