Disclaimer: I'm not yet much of a burley smoker so I'm not sure how much of my experience is due to the age/condition of my tobacco and how much is due to general burley characteristics. So I revived the moisture of two old, bone-dry pouches of Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic. It is pleasantly moist but not overly so by any means, and I get that rich, heavenly original aroma from the jar. But it seems to smoke fast, bland and ashy, however. I do get some of the liqueur notes and a hint of flavor but more than anything it seems like a cigarette when I smoke it. I'm going to give it a few more chances but if I just can't get into it, I see a possibility of blending some other bulk leaf with it. I'd rather not waste 12$ and 3oz of what seems like perfectly functional (perfunctional?) tobacco. I don't have many choices to blend with at the moment - I've got a half-pound of BCAQ, a half-pound of Admiral's Choice Vanilla Cav, and about 10oz of Smoker's Pride Black Cav - beyond that I have small amounts of a few Boswell and McClelland aromatics, some light English blends by Uhle's and Newminster, and about an ounce of Smoker's Pride Whiskey. I might just be barking mad but I thought I'd see if the excellent community here has any input on what would make a good blend, and also if my bland experience with SWRA as-is is simply due to badly aged tobacco.
