The ultimate irony would occur if we can make it so popular that it is unfindable and the price skyrocketed. Then we could all shame DGE as a horrible snob.

There are at least 2 fallacies in that statement.
1) I would actually have to give a rip about what people said or thought about me to be shamed. Remember, what other people say about you is none of your business.

2) I would just switch to PA or Half & Half if CH became a high priced limited availability tobacco.:old:

I've started smoking this more often. I got sick of some of my other stuff ghosting my meers, so I went to this instead. Good stuff. I think I'll pick up a tub next TADday...I mean payday.:xd:
 

I once asked a local tobacconist if they had any Carter Hall in stock. She laughed at me and asked, "Do they even make that stuff anymore?" I replied.."ok, how about you recommend a good burley." She says, "well, we don't really have anything that is only burley, but this aromatic stuff is fantastic and it has bits of burley in it..

I left disappointed.
 

I average about 10 (medium size) bowls of tobacco per day, of which 4 or 5 are usually CH.
Its always my first pipe of the day with coffee. I have found its nicotine content to be adequate for a day starter :puffy:

CH is also one of the few tobaccos (along with SWR of course) that I do not dry before smoking.
Good stuff that Carter Hall.
 

smoked Carter Hall and PA for decades--both are what Doug described; an honest smoke--i could be happy with either as an ONLY choice--

i wonder how close morleysson got to re-creating Blue Boar??--i never had the original--just wasn't marketed in my area--i would have tried it strictly on the basis of the tin art--i can't compare Morley's Best to original Blue Boar, but i feel that Bob created a new American Classic in Morley's Best---after well over 50 years of CH and PA, i find Morley's Best has become my favorite--and the price is comparable; sorta--don't wanta hijack the thread; just wonderin'--if this needs to be moved please do so--

I FINALLY picked up some CH and (big shocker here) you all were RIGHT! It's a great tobacco. Not too flavorful, but at the same time, it's easy to pack, easy to light, and cheap ($4.50 a pouch in California) Funny story, in the Wal-Mart in Elk Grove (I guess they have 2 now. Who knew?) the lady had never heard of it. But at the Rite Aid in Lodi (where I actually live now) they had it in stock. Go figure.
 

Hi Whitebriar!
Is Morley's Best a burley blend?
yessir

it is burley based--lots of burley--some virginia and a good bit of latakia--not a lat bomb--just enough for seasoning--it really is a most pleasant tobacco--as much as i like carter hall and PA this one is right up there with these old classics--
