C&D tobaccos are a hit or miss thing for me. I've got more luck with their tinned tobaccos than their bulk ones so far. Now that said Pirate Kake and Billy Budd bulk are really good.

My favorite C&D blend is Poplar Camp and that one ONLY comes in bulk. Folks have asked why there is no tinned version, implying that a tinned version would somehow be better?

I really, really like C&D's bulk London Squire. Way more than I thought I would. In fact I think it might eclipse my great love for PS 17 and PS 306.

I'm a huge fan of their tobaccos, and since Bayou Morning is one of the blends you mentioned, I smoke that pretty much constantly and can't recommend it enough. I actually really like the "rough edges" or harshness in some of their blends, because like the OP, I really like strong potent flavors. I have never noticed a difference in the bulk v/s the tins, and I love the value of the bulk! And just to add to the list of great blends that everyone has mentioned, you should check out Big 'n' Burley, and a definite +1 to Bayou Night, which MSO mentioned.

I used to buy lots of C&D bulks. I was really enjoying what I felt was pure tobacco flavor, and I do like burley.

Yorktown or their VA Flake are pretty nice VA's.

Lately, my go to bulk VA is 3 Sails from D&R. It's a fantastic mixer, and great by itself. It requires a little untangling when mixing due to its fine shag cut.
