    Packed for soon, C&D Burley Flake #5, and as promised in a thread about neglected but good-smoking pipes, packed in a Vuilliard bent apple with faux bone ferrule...I'm really attached to burley in most of its forms; there are probably burley blends I wouldn't like, but generally I do. This is a sample from the Chicago show a member sent me.
