    Well, after reading all about your wonderful experiences with Burley and a cob I've decided I should give it ago. But I don't have access to your (American) over the counter burley staples :(

    I thought I'd found a source for Prince Albert, Carter Hall, SWR, et al but had my hopes cruely dashed. Can anyone recommend blends, readily available in the UK, that are beautifully burley based?

    Now, where did I put that pouch of Condor..? :puffy:

    Well, the reviews on TR are positive, so that could be a go-er!

    Any more recommendation appreciated :)

    Golden blend ( called Golden
    Extra in the states) is a very
    nice burley. Spam, if you meet
    me in Bath for a pint, I'll bring
    some CH for ya. :D

    Poor grammar and communal bathing/drinking? You Brits are an odd lot. :)

    Sure, send Condor this way, get whatever burley you want in return back. With the demand for Condor you should not have any problem getting what you want.
