    I plan on stocking up on c&d burley, but not sure which to go with.

    OJK
    Haunted Bookshop
    3 Friars
    Pegasus

    I like the strength of OJK, but it seems lacking in something.
    Initially I hated Pegasus, but it has grown on me.
    Never tried the others, and I am interested to hear opinions.... If you could only stock up on one of these blends, which would it be?

    I like HB, 3 Friars not so much.

    Pegasus works for me...You might try some of John Pattons stuff. Storm Front is an awesome burley blend.

    Never had Pegasus or 3 Friars. HB and OJK did nothing for me and were both "meh". 2 star (of 4)

    I have some unopened Burley Flake #3 in the cellar, so I can't speak to that. The only C&D burley I've had is Crooner, which I'm not a big fan of. The cube cut burley is great, but the deertongue has a kind of soapy, astringent quality that I don't enjoy.

    Pegasus is a great blend. Never had 3 Friars, but it sounds interesting. The others I didn't think were all that great.
