    Okay guys,
    I might have to step in and keep the peace. Actually, Jes, your persistence might pay off. My dad use to smoke PA and I have always been curious about it but every time I think about Prince Albert, I always think of the old crank call joke (remember crank calls?), "Do you have Prince Albert in a can?"

    Well, maybe it's time to get some and "let him out." :groucho:

    Thanks again, guys, for all the great suggestions!

    Solani - Aged Burley Flake

    Taken from TR
    his blend contains dark brown Burley from Kentucky,
    light Burley from Brazil, and white Burley from Malawi (southeast Africa).
    Will developed a unique toasting process to make the blend slightly sweet.
    It is a natural blend with no additives or flavors.

    My edit is mainly to say that, yes, this definitely has some dark, dry, chocolate casing.
    I wouldn't qualify it as an aromatic. But that flavor is present."

    Hi All,

    I am with Jesla on this one -the Old American Classics should never be overlooked - Carter Hall, Prince Albert and Grainger could be worth a revisit! Sometimes the simplest answer is the best!

    Best to all

    IF your looking for a high quality burley blend try Uhle's blend 00 and their Perfection Plug Burley it doesn't get better than those,also you stated no cavendish but also give Boswell's premiun Burley a try but it does have a bit of cavendish but it's also a great burley blend
