    real butt kickers! lol
    I love strong tobaccos and these babies are very bold.
    I liked them all.
    Anyone else like them or have a fav?

    #3 is my favorite and #2 is pretty good, also.

    For some reason I often pass on C & D when putting my TAD lists together. I don't know why. I will have to try these, as lately I have been into Burley much more than ever. Maybe a trade is in order.

    I just didn't get #3. I tried it and it just tasted really harsh. I smoked the whole tin and had some good moments at kickoff but once I got midway thru the bowl it would get harsh and unpleasant. Cut 50/50 with 5100 I enjoyed it.

    #3 was a bad trip for me.

    Don't smoke OJK then. You'll never stop hallucinating.

    I thought OJK was like a Miller Lite compared to the CD's.
    Unless I had an old (weaker) OJK. The strength (for me) was like night and day.

    I don't know if OJK has more or less nic but it was about 10,000% harsher than any of the Burley Flakes, to my palate.

    Interesting. I smoked a couple ozs of OJK and didn't get that harshness that I got in BF#3. May just be a personal chemistry type thing. There are few tobaccos I just don't get along with at all but BF#3 was one.

    Personal chemistry is a funny thing. I get no harshness from #3... a lot of strength but very smooth. OJK was like roller skating on gravel and was as subtle as a paint scraper to the tongue.

    At any rate, you and I are both beyond the norm. As I hear it, most people either love them both or hate them both. :D
