    Howdy all, I just ordered some John Patton Storm Front, and Macbaren's London Blend from 4Noggins. Anybody out there tried these???? If so, what did you think of it?

    The Mac B's isn't my favorite burley, but it's a good one. It may become yours! Haven't tried the other. Good luck - hope they work out.

    The MB London is good though MB GE is better , imo . I've never heard of John Patton Storm Front .. will have to read up on it . The Wessex Burley products are really nice also

    Yeah after reading the reviews, I wish I would have ordered the Wessex instead. The reviews of John Patton blends are good to read... I think I have TAD (I just looked that up, no, not in my medical journals)

    Never tried either one of those. It'll be interesting to hear what you think of them.

    I just cellared a pound of MacB London Blend. I like it. Nuthin' fancy, just a good Burley that goes great in a cob. Haven't tried the Storm Front. If you find you like Burleys, be sure to try Solani Aged Burley Flake, MacB Symphony and Golden Extra, Stokkebye Cubed Burley, and - of course - good ol' American OTC's like Carter Hall, Sir Walter, Prince Albert, Granger, and Walnut.

    Be careful reading up on Storm Front because Storm Front is also a white supremacist thang. Type in Storm Front and you might just find yourself hyper-linking to some really disturbing stuff... well, it's distrubing if you're not a hate mongering skin head /Neo-Nazi/Klansman and your knuckles don't drag.

    Storm Front isn't bad. The McB London Blend I can't smoke. Smells good, but the honey/molasses casing McB uses on about everything, just stings me to death. For a relatively pure burley taste, I go to C&D, they have several. Uhle's and Peretti's have some very nice smokeable burley blends, but all are cased to varying degrees. They are quite good smokers though.

    I enjoy storm front the most in a cob with a churchwarden forever stem. It allows me to pick up on the different notes of the tobacco that I lose in a stock stem.
