Happy to hear I made a good decision on the Wessex Burley Slice. I have the 7 ounce can of it in the cellar and now I'm a bit more anxious to pop the can open LOL.
The Solani ABF, in my view, is a totally different animal as far as burleys go.
ABF is a full, all tobacco combo of selected aged burleys with nothing added. If there's a casing, I can't find it.
It really sounded like just the burley for me -- too often, burleys are too heavily topped/cased and too much the aromatic and these are not always what I am looking for in a burley. Such a burley as I've been seeking is not easy to find except in some OTCs.
ABF is very good but, TBH I was a bit disappointed. I suppose, after trying some of R.L. Will's other blends and having been duly impressed, I was expecting more -- or rather, I was expecting something that ABF isn't and, to be fair, isn't intended to be.
It is quality burley for sure, but a bit pricey, thus when all put together and evaluated, I likely will not be buying more of it.
