    Hey guys! I'm thinking about an order from P&W. I know I'm getting some nut brown burley, but not sure what else to go with. Aros aren't usually my thing, but I'll consider them here. Any thoughts on what I should fill out my order with?

    Wilke 400 is really good.

    The burley that I've tried from them had been nice and smooth w/ no bite . I think one was #00 .. and I forget the other . Their Burley is nice

    If you like aromatics at all, then you need to try #191 Honey-Vanilla.:)

    I smoke several Wilke blends. Of course the Nut Brown Burley is my favorite but I love the 400 & 612 as well. The 515 is very nice rum based Burley too. Bleeker Street is nice as well. 191, 192 & 196 are good smokes also if you like Burley based Cavendish. Carol does a nice job of blending.

    #191 is their best seller and, in my humble opinion, is terrific!​

    I agree on Nut Brown Burley and #191.
    I have had a couple others and they were good also, but these are my 2 favs.
    I plan to try others soon.

    Nut Brown Burley is a classic example of a lightly cased burley.
    #191 is a classic example of how to make an aromatic that has an underlying taste of tobacco.
    #400 is a classic example of an English with perique.

    All of Carole's blends I've smoked were very good to excellent.

    One that is not mentioned too often that I personally like is 622. More latakia than the 400 without getting too offensive. It's a sweet taste instead of it getting too smokey. The perique adds a little twist to it as well. I like the 400 a little more but the 622 has it's place with me. A slightly different smoke.

    So I am thinking about NBB, Bestmake, 191... Hmm. For the last, either High Hat or Dummerston.
