    Altadis is becoming an incredibly dependable, and quality tobacco company. I have yet to be let down by one of their offerings. I especially appreciate their "Match" series...I'd like to try their ERR Match...

    Coda, I'm near the end of my bag of ERR Match and have enjoyed it more than I had expected. As I went through the 8 oz. bag, the flavor grew on me. It does taste a bit like Carter Hall, but lighter.

    Also, I've tried a few of their Dunhill Match blends, and not only liked them all, but thought they were decently close to the original.

    We agree on the 965 Match. The Elizabethan Match is very close, too, except I felt it had a little more perique than the original, but that was just fine with me.

    I have had their Mild Burley, I think it's called. My local has it and calls it Burley Light. It's a nice burley with a hint of sugar, or err... Splenda!;)

    Altadis Virginia slices 507c & Altadis Red ribbon is mostly my all-day smoke now. I do get a bag of Perique to mix with the red ribbon occasionally. P&C stocks, I think everything that Altadis blends.

    Never try the burley but their Balkan II isn't bad at all either.

    I'll have to give it a try as I'm still quite the burley virgin (SWRA and Velvet being my only forays). I do enjoy Altadis' 965 match blend. It was my first English (woof) and while I don't yet consistently enjoy medium to heavy English blends, I do return to 965 on occasion. Good evening stroll toby.

    For some reason your link goes haywire for me.
    Is it the "Burley Delight" you are looking at?
    I have seen that one at the shop, but haven't gotten around to trying it.

    Byzantium is one of my new favorites. Latakia, turkish, and perique. Very nice, and inexpensive in bulk...
