    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.

    I like the Mac Baren Burley London blend. I also like Edgeworth Sliced but it is way expensive to find old tins.

    I like the Milan 401 Burley Mix. Very good people to deal with and they are also a sponsor.

    Ditto Sam on the Mac Baren BLB. I also like L J Heart Burley.

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

    H&H LJ Heart Burley is pretty nice, as is Old Companion. Neither is straight burley, however.

    +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.

    I also would recommend Scotty's Butternut Burley.

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

    And to all a good night.

    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.

    A bit pricey, but the Uhles Blend 00 or the Uhle's Perfection Plug Burley are both excellent.

    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.

    It's not bulk, but Wessex Burley Slice is an incredible BU that all BU aficionados should try...

    On the bulk side, I heard that Stokkebye's Cube Cut BU is pretty good.

    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.

    Uhle's Blend 00 and Perfection Plug need another mention. Both are just fabulous. I have some on order.

    Park Lane's Fireside is also really good. It is supposed to be based on LL Bean Special Blend or something like that. Never tried the LL Bean one but I like Park Lane Fireside.

    I love the flavor, but it bites (me) something awful!

    Theres a ton of good blends in those suggestions guys! I want to say thanks as well! I've mentioned before I want to try some burley straight or add some more to existing blends for another dimension of flavor. Now I have some added to the bucket list and I'll be sure to add a few to the next order.

    I was talking about this with my wife the other night (more like boring her to death lol) and she said 'It's like wine, but you don't have to wait as long to taste it.' I thought that was a good analogy from a non-piper. I thoroughly enjoy all the selections available to us now a days and it just keeps that 'new toy' feeling flowing strong and never getting old.

    Can someone tell me more about Scotty's BB and the ERR match?

    I love high quality 'OTC' blends. I recently finished a pouch of Classic Burley Kake. Initially, the topping was a bit much for me, as it seemed to mask the natural Burley flavor. After a year or so, I enjoyed it much more (the topping having weakened). So I'm certainly interested in blends like CBK, but less potent in the flavoring department.

    I'm wondering if either BB or ERR might fit the bill? I'd be interested to compare them to my favorite Uhle's blend.
