    I've been smoking BLB for some time now and it has pretty much been my all day smoke. I recently got around to trying Golden Extra and must say that BLB now has some serious competition for my all day smoke. MB GE is very good. It seems a bit sweeter than BLB. Regardless, I could smoke either one now.

    Yep, Ruffino turned me on to Golden
    Extra. It's now my main choice during
    the commute to and from work.

    You might try some Symphony as well. It's a burley/VA/cavendish blend, which gives it a little extra oomph. It's the only Mac Baren blend in my rotation.

    It's all priced good and available in bulk. Jesla sent me some Symphony a while back I guess it's time to try it again being I can smoke MBs now. I was still a newb when I tried it the first time.

    Don Ruffino sent me some in a trade a little while ago and it is a great smoke, I went and got me a pound a couple weeks later. I haven't tried BLB yet but I've been perfectly satisfied with the Golden Extra.

    Ruffino should get a commission from MB. :eek:hyeah:

    I have an unopened tin and am more excited about trying it after reading your opinions. As soon as I polish off my Wessex Burley Slice I'll give it a go.

    OMG ..... Is someone going on about MB GE :) Damn woddy , I should have sent you some ages ago . My bad .

    I've got an analogy for GE and BLB ... It's the same diffrence as SWR to PA . SWR and GE have a sweet on the edge thing where as BLB and PA are more the nut/choc burley .
    I'm glad someone else is diggin it . It's my benchmark blend . This time of year it's really tops . After Mass this Sunday I'm takin the family out for a picnic in the
    mini van we picked up yesterday [ I drive a silverado .. just in case you were thinkin ] and I'll be looking out at some view smokin GE and then drink some of this ... http://i845.photobucket.com/albums/ab13/ruffinogold/stuff/ruffino.jpg

    GE / Golden Extra and BLB / Burley london Blend are two Burley tobacco blends from MacBaren / MB . You can buy it at any online etailer . Both blends come in bulk as well . Imo MB makes high quality consistant blends decade after decade .

    And it never ends, either! When I first signed up w/PSF I had 4 tobaccos and no tins. Now I have 11 lbs and a long TAD list that keeps growing.
