    Eagles finally won the Philadelphia "snow bowl". I won a bowl of Dan's Blue Note in a meers. Haven't smoked this in awhile. After this tin, I probably won't order anymore until Spring.

    Giving the cob a break, and smoking a bowl of Molto Dolce in my bent Brigham Voyageur. My friend is smoking a Newport cigarette, which is killing the room (car) note...it's his car though, so i'll keep my complaints to myself..

    Can't go wrong with Solani ABF. I love my OTC Burleys too, of course, but there are quite a few brands to explore. I've heard Moe's is good, and I really enjoy Mac Baren's Burley London Blend.
    Funny, but my favorite is still Sir Walter Raleigh, which I'm about to smoke in my MM Washington :puffy:

    That cabinet would be considered a bottom shelf in our warehouse.

    I like SWR and Burley London Blend, too.

    I'm now smoking Stonehaven in a 1998 smooth medium bend Peterson Limerick 69 with a nickel band. Love this pipe. I got it on sale in 2000 for $30 new, and it's been worth every penny of it.

    Not yet. I've seen that just about everyone loves it. I'm planning on putting another fairly substantial order together after the holidays.

    Should I add that on?

    Golden Extra is good and you should try it, though I personally prefer BLB because it's a little more earthier and chocolately in taste. I hate it's being discontinued. P&W Nut Brown Burley is great, too.

    Btw, here's my review of Moe' Confetti at TR.com:
    I'm amazed at how few reviews this blend has. I think it's a terrific burley smoke. A previous reviewer mentioned it has a little taste of CH and PA, and I agree. The chocolate notes are very PA-like, and the burley sweetness seems more CH-like,with a little nuttiness that you'd expect from a burley mixture. Easy to pack, easy to keep lit, burns evenly and consistently to the very end with no goop. If you like Solani's Aged Burley Flake, you will find this a very pleasing change, and I could see switching from one to the other just to keep your burley smoking life interesting. I'd say there is a little resemblance in the burley profile to several Uhle's and P&W blends, though none quite have the burley-chocolate taste that this has. I'd rate this as one of my top ten favorite burley blends.

    posting from a few pages back. It is hard to keep up. Apparently we smoke a lot on this forum....

    Thanks for more suggestions. What are friends for right? :byg:
