Briar Fox, ATM......
Escudo and Peterson UF! Not mixed together
As an addendum to my previous post in this thread, I always found 3P's tastes best in a cob, probably comes a close second to Condor Long Cut.
Well damn it - I found out why my cob was smoking weird... the damn thing has a filter cotton thing in it! I know, I know. Newb mistake. It's the first cob I've ever owned. I threw that little sucker out, and wow tobacco has flavor now!
I don't smoke too many aromatics, but when I do it's almost always in a cob (mix of MM Country Gents, Legends, and a Freehand) .
Sunset Breeze, Anny Cake, and Pembroke are some of my favorites.
I also almost always grab a cob when I'm fishing in a canoe/small boat (not a $$$ pipe to risk losing).
Edgeworth, SWR and Granger are faves of mine.
Favorites in a cob:
Edgeworth Ready Rubbed
McClelland 5100 Red Cake
Uhle's Perfection Plug Burley, #00, #44, and Blend 300
Solani Aged Burley Flake
H&H Classic Burley Cake
Marker's Blend (aro)
GH Bob's Chocolate Flake
SG Grousemoor Plug/ Canon Plug
GLPease Jacknife Plug
Middletons Cherry Blend
Though I haven't had any of either in about 6 months.
That about covers what I smoke in 'em anyway.
Something I noticed recently is that MM Ozark hardwoods seem to prefer aromatics. It covers the initial "burning wood" taste and breaks it in nicely.
After a month or so I think I'll try some other blends in the Ozark.
My cobs get everything from aromatics, Burleys (of course), Virginias and English blends as well.
But as mentioned by many, Burleys really do sing in a cob.
I enjoy h&h marble kake. Smoked nice and slow and enjoyed with a good sippin bourbon. Preferably while sittin on my couch
Yeah I recently received a sample of Marble Kake from Atom, and I've been smoking it in a cob. It, and all Virginias for me at least, really sings in an MM Cob.
Absolutely thay do. The virginnys are an amazing tobacco. Put thru a cob it is a thing of magic.
I think Night Train is at it's finest in a cob.
I like just about any burly in a cob, but its been years since I have smoked one. I might smoke one at some point tonight.
I absolutely love dunhill EMP in a cob. I feel like it adds a subtle sweetness, not the same in a briar.
I like burleys and Virginias, and va/bur mixtures and flakes in cobs. I smoke them sometimes in my briars but I think they work better in a cob. My favorites are H&H Old Companion and SWR. I always smoke oriental and lat blends in a briar and never smoke any overly cased fruity sweet aromatics in anything.
Just bought some CH and am excited to smoke it. Has anyone had any luck with mixing CH and any virginnys
Sure. Burley and virginias are always good, to me at least. Try it, you might like it.
Carter Hall and Sugar Barrel.
CH or Butternut Burley always work for me. Thinking I need to try some 5100 or 2015 soon.
