    Which is the better smoke? Prince Albert or Sir Walter(regular, not aro)

    If at first you don't succeed, have another bowl.

    FWIW Michael, I think you'd like SWR better than PA. My 2 cents.

    I dislike both equally, better off with Kentucky Club if your looking for another drug store blend.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I prefer SWR over PA, but I like PA and think it is a good smoke. SWR has a bit more taste for myself. Since Kentucky Club has been thrown in the mix, I would take Kentucky Club Mild or Mixture over SWR or PA, but that's just me as far as it goes at what I like the best.

    I prefer SWR over PA. Less of a chemical taste, though my wife loves the smell of PA when I smoke it.

    I smoked SWR for several years, back in the 60's and early 70's. Tried PA but preferred SWR. Didn't try CH until last year (always thought it to be a sweetened blend, simply because of the name). Now I prefer CH, followed by SWR, then PA.

    Yeah, I don't get all of the interest in OTC blends. Haven't ever smoked one that I could stand for more than half a bowl.

    I have the same problem with Va/pers,most English blends and aromatics.

    On topic.I like both,but like PA better.

    I prefer PA over SWR, but have to go with with a few others have said, CH is better than both.

    I'm not complaining.

    No SWR in my parts...lots of PA. When thinking of PA and CH, I found the CH a bit more interesting, but I've smoked lots of PA and like them both for OTCs.

    SWR over PA. SWR has a mild sweet nuttiness to it I enjoy. SWR, CH and a cob are my fishing smokes.
