Hi everyone,
I'd like to find a good straight burley or two so I can start adding some good burleys to my cellar. I like Burley and will be smoking any cellared Burleys straight up, but I will probably also mix them with Virginias or Latakia from time to time. I'd prefer a ribbon cut, simply for easier mixing, but a cube cut would also work. I am looking for something that is available enough for me to buy it regularly by the pound for the next year or two. Reference points: My favorite Burley ever was Edgeworth Sliced; a burley approaching the strength of Old Joe Krantz is going to be too strong for me; I really like the Prince Albert and Carter Hall blends, but would also like to cellar a straight Burley or two. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Altadis Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match. Good nutty flavor, and a slight molasses taste. I like it as an all day blend.

+1 on Scotty's Butternut Burley, now back in stock at P&C - my current go-to smoke. I also enjoy Classic Burley Kake, and you can't go wrong with Prince Albert.
Been meaning to try BLWB. Is it good in a cob?

I haven't tried many, but from what I have, Scotty's Butternut Burley is very nice. I've been thinking of cellaring that one myself.

MacBaren Burley London Blend, or Golden Extra is nice too. GE does have some VA blended in though.

I would second the Edgeworth Ready Rubbed match, comes cube cut in bulk and is nice and nutty. Price is decent.

I'll second Lane's Burley Without Bite. It's a pleasing smoke on its own, and is a good mix, with a

equal parts Va. Red Cake and black Cavendish, and a dash of Latakia and/or Perique. Very versatile.

Available in bulk online and at many shops.

I would also suggest Down By The River from 4Noggins. I smoke burley often. I currently have McBaren London Burley Blend, Classic Burley Kake, LJ Heart Burley, Angler's Dream and Carter Hall in my rotation. Of course, none of these is "straight" burley.

For a really nice old school American burley blend that's also a great value, the Altadis Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match is hard to beat.
It must be good stuff Roth. Last few times I've ordered from P&C it's been out of stock. I'll eventually get to try it.

Thanks, everyone, for the excellent suggestions. I have just ordered some Altadis ERR Match and will be investigating the other suggestions.

I just went onto P&C to order some Scotty's and it's back ordered. So I decided to try some Lane BLWB (4oz.). Oh, I also ordered 1/2lb of 1Q, 1x 50gr McClelland Blue Mountain(never tried that one) and 1x 50gr FMOTT.
