    As an addendum to my previous post in this thread, I always found 3P's tastes best in a cob, probably comes a close second to Condor Long Cut.

    Well damn it - I found out why my cob was smoking weird... the damn thing has a filter cotton thing in it! I know, I know. Newb mistake. It's the first cob I've ever owned. I threw that little sucker out, and wow tobacco has flavor now!

    I don't smoke too many aromatics, but when I do it's almost always in a cob (mix of MM Country Gents, Legends, and a Freehand) .
    Sunset Breeze, Anny Cake, and Pembroke are some of my favorites.
    I also almost always grab a cob when I'm fishing in a canoe/small boat (not a $$$ pipe to risk losing).

    Something I noticed recently is that MM Ozark hardwoods seem to prefer aromatics. It covers the initial "burning wood" taste and breaks it in nicely.
    After a month or so I think I'll try some other blends in the Ozark.

    My cobs get everything from aromatics, Burleys (of course), Virginias and English blends as well.
    But as mentioned by many, Burleys really do sing in a cob.

    Yeah I recently received a sample of Marble Kake from Atom, and I've been smoking it in a cob. It, and all Virginias for me at least, really sings in an MM Cob.

    I think Night Train is at it's finest in a cob.

    I like just about any burly in a cob, but its been years since I have smoked one. I might smoke one at some point tonight.

    I absolutely love dunhill EMP in a cob. I feel like it adds a subtle sweetness, not the same in a briar.

    I like burleys and Virginias, and va/bur mixtures and flakes in cobs. I smoke them sometimes in my briars but I think they work better in a cob. My favorites are H&H Old Companion and SWR. I always smoke oriental and lat blends in a briar and never smoke any overly cased fruity sweet aromatics in anything.

    Sure. Burley and virginias are always good, to me at least. Try it, you might like it.

    CH or Butternut Burley always work for me. Thinking I need to try some 5100 or 2015 soon.
