    just cracked the tin of this stuff and man it smells like damp clothes lol gonna fill up some and give it a go- while I do that let me know your thoughts. I have been trying to look for an alternative to escudo because I can't get it here. I believe this blend does contain burley, which I enjoy quite a bit.

    Cumberland is nothing like Escudo.

    Yes, Cumberland is mostly a burley - or a "kentucky" if that distinction means anything. For me, it was quite a changeling. I had trouble predicting when it would taste good and when it would turn bitter. It was very much predicated on my mood... I guess! I never really figured it out. Hopefully it'll work better for you than it did for me. A lot of people like it.

    yes fantastic blend, however, this stuff costs around 35$ a tin here so I will save it for an occasional treat
