    I like the taste of some natural Virginia sweetness, along with the nutty quality associated with Burley. I enjoy Carter Hall, but would like other choices.

    Today, I bought some Erinmore 'Flake' at the recommendation of a tobacconist at the Tinderbox. I have not tried it yet

    What other baccy's would you recommend I try?

    Erinmore has a pineapple topping and is pretty sweet . MB Symphony might be one to try and might also be in bulk at yer B&M . Orlik Dark Kentucky/Heinrich Dark Strong Flake would no doubt be " The One " imo ... it's one of the great blends . I'm wanting to try Foxs' Hibernia for the same reason

    The Tinderbox should have a few bulk blends that would be predominately virginia & burley.

    Erinmore Flake was an interesting suggestion. It is lovely-sweet stuff but, so fruity, not a very natural expression of a vabur.

    Mix some Orlik Golden Sliced and Carter Hall from about 5:1 down to 1:1. Ba da bing. Ba da boom.

    C & D has quite a few VA/Burley blends that you might like.

    Thanks, everyone. I've jotted down all the recommendations, looked them up on Tobacco Reviews, and I'll begin trying them.

    I'd also highly recommend OGS.
    Maybe some Pete's 3P too?
