P.S. Proper English in a Washington is one of my favorite combinations.
I prefer burley blends in a cob. G&H Bright and burley s my current winner.
I also have a burley mix I have been smoking. Some Half and Half mixed with Edwards Brandywine and Bishop Burley. That is an awesome smoke.
CH, SWR, Sugar Barrel, Uhles perfection plug, H&H Classic Burley Kake, I also like straight Virginias and VaPers in cobs...but as said, anything in a cob is great!
I think it's already been said but isn't everything good in a cob?
CH, PA, SB, SWR.. most any of the good OTC blends.
OTCs, and gasp cavendish based aromatics.
Bulk Mac Baren Virginia No. 1 air pocketed into a straight MM Legend ...
That's my opinion at the moment. It'll probably change when I load some LTF into a straight MM Pride.
I've been burning Stonehaven folded and stuffed in the bottom of my well charred County Gent, then topped off with Carter Hall. It has been a killer lunchbreak smoke.
Man, I really need to get some burley to fire up in my cob.
So far I've only had MB Club Blend and Captain Black in the cob, though both were quite tasty.
Storm Front followed by Carter Hall.
Kendal Dark. Or Coconut Twist. Or Irish Oak. Or Irish Flake. Or Scottish Cake. Or Tilbury. Or Granger. Or any other blend I like.
Mostly Kendal Dark. I do have a nice big CG used for things like Condor and Bosun Cut Plug and such, too, though.
Mac B:s Va No 1.
US OTCs. Would never dream of using a cob for lakeland or Brit OTCs, simply because I would be disappointed. Captain Black White, CH and SWR for sure.
I smoke everything in a cob. I always have a cob in my bag with whatever tobacco I want to smoke that day.
i have 3 cobs, all with different blends assigned to them. Skiff, Commonwealth and Syrian Latakia.
Burley, burley, SWR, burley, H&H Classic Burley Kake, burley, Carter Hall, burley, MacBaren Old Dark Fired rubbed out, um....hmm....what else.....OH, burley.......5 brothers, burley.... That's about it. SG FVF rubbed out is pretty good I have to admit....
So you're sayin you like burley Jason?
Has anyone said Burley is best in a cob yet?
LURVEZ the burley.....that was a recent discovery as I was strolling down the path in my pipe smoking journey. I typically used to use my cobs for experimentation, increasing the rest time of the briers by having more pipes in the mix. Never would I have intuitively imagined that something called burley went swimmingly in a little old cob. That's like pizza & beer, hotdogs & mustard, burgers & fries, I just never knew the 2 were a magic pair until I ordered 3 cobs this summer as part of a deal pipesandcigars,com was having~ 3 cobs & 4 oz. of H&H Classic Burley Kake for $25 or something like that. I figured it was a good deal, etc~ So I yanked out the Washington, brand spankin' new, sniffed the burley, filled the cob, lit it & thought "hot damn"~~~~
So, after all this time of seeing people posting in the smoking lounge that they're smoking "Carter Hall in a Cob" or "SWR in my country gentleman" I'm thinking, sheesh.....not much imagination. Then I try it. NOW when I see those posts I think, "there's another guy in pipe heaven...." Yep~ pretty much all I smoked this summer was burley in cobs. after almost 11 yrs of pipe smoking, I hadn't had the good fortune enough to experience that until May~ Since then, the # of cobs I possess has doubled & I now have an 8oz jar labeled "B" lol.
