    I've been into pipes now for just over a year and have mainly been into the aromatic tobaccos like 1Q, RLP6, and HGL. For fun I had ordered some Carter Hall and Sir Walter Raleigh a while back and I tried it out this week and I really liked them. I'm still a beginner pipe smoker suffering through all the usual afflictions - freight training, and many relights, and I found Carter Hall to be quite forgiving. I'm hoping some fellow members here can recommend some bulk alternatives from SPC that would be similar so I can add a few to the cellar.

    TIA!

    Chatham Manor, though I think only P&C carries that blend. It's worth your money to get it since you like CH. I recommended Granger, Half & Half, Heine's Blend, SWRA, and Prince Albert. Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend is not like the aforementioned blends, but it's a tasty mild aromatic and you might like it.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm a Canadian and so SPC has cheap international shipping and as a result gets a lot of my business. I don't think P&C does international shipping.

    How much more cheaply can you smoke than CH?

    It's not necessarily a cost thing, but it's sold out at SPC plus I wouldn't mind checking out a few similar tobaccos! Any suggestions?

    Alas,P&C doesn't ship to Canada.

    Tobaccopipes.com has Chatham Manor, but only in tubs and the duties might kill you.

    Is that the only blend you presently smoke? If so, what do you like about it taste wise? If not, what other blends have you smoked that you like? There are countless other very good blends to recommend, it is a matter of what you like.

    I smoke mainly what I mentioned in my original post. I found CH to have a nice mild taste, almost creamy.

    Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend

    Hey jiminks... No wonder you like it. Your picture is on the tin!

    Of course now I have to try it.

    Chatham Manor is the only Carter Hall clone of which I am aware.

    P&C also lists a “Match, Carter Hall” in bulk. Not sure if this is Chatham Manor but it is listed separately.

    Match, Carter Hall

    I should have mentioned Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match, too. I really good burley blend that you can buy for about $25.00 a pound. I stocked heavily on this one.

    I bet that ship has sailed. They've been mentioned so many times for "shipping discretely" that it's the worst kept secret since landing on the moon.

    If you live near a cigarette store, the often have the tubs of Carter Hall. Around here they're $27.

    well, we're tawkin burley based here, for the most part, so, all of the above are wonderful suggestions, to which I will add one of C&D's blends available from SPC, Big 'n Burley. It is sneaky smooth with a pretty strong nic hit that will tantalize you.

    C&D's Pegasus is a Burley/Virginia blend that reminds me of Carter Hall, but with a slightly better nicotine hit. I'd put it in the medium range.

    Also look at bulk blends of Virginia, burley and Cavendish, which is usually a mild and dependable blend. There are many of these, so look where you have access to order.

    I smoke a lot of Chatham Manor and it is basically a higher grade version of Carter Hall blended by Russ Oulette. It used to be only available from Pipes and Cigars but Smoking Pipes now carries it as well. It is usually cheaper than Carter Hall, tastes better and has less PG for sure.

    By Edgeworth do you guys mean Lane Limited RR? I thought Edgeworth was discontinued, at least the name.

    You might like exploring Virginia burley blends. I have found CH to be very light on the aromatic part, but about half way through the bowl, I am tolerating enjoying the Virginia Burley aspect. Check out some of the VaBurs like C&D's Pegasus, Virginia Gentleman, or MacBaren's Golden Extra. This will give you a great introduction to non-aromatics, but you will find some flavors that you may be enjoying in CH.

    There's nothing wrong with smoking Carter Hall. Especially if you are homeless and sleeping in your car. But, at some point, you might want to sample some of the finer things...

    +1 on the Edgeworth. I really like Carter Hall, and I've come to prefer Lane's Edgeworth Ready Rubbed as my go-to burley. I've got a few pounds jarred and plan to get a lot more since this will likely go off the market in a few years as a post-2007 blend. My understanding is that Lane was the final company to produce the blend for Edgeworth, so the Lane "match" is really the final iteration of Edgeworth. I've also read criticism that the Edgeworth blended by Lane was not as good as the prior iterations of the blend, sort of like how Dunhill blends were in fact blended by a lot of different companies at different times, and some were supposedly better than others.

    Alexj52: Sutliff makes a Match Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in bulk only. I recommend it and Lane's RR as well.
