    Thoughts from folks on PSF on the baccy's above? I like #00 and tried SG BBF last night so I figure I like burley's, but I know I like VaPer's too.

    I have only tried #00 and I liked it, so I am interested to see the comments. :popc:

    Edit..

    I have only tried Perfect Plug and liked it.

    Of the list I've only had the 303. I believe it's the PPG (which I like) with a bit of Lat added (which... I sometimes like). 00 is quite tasty as is PPG. That's it for Uhle's and me thus far, though.

    Thanks for your take on 303 Tony. I like Prebyterian Mix which is the only blend I've had with lat so far. For that reason I thought I might like 303 and Bishops Move.

    Bishop's Move is an excellent english blend - one of my favorites in that genre. If you try it and don't like it, send it to me and I'll bet I can find something in my cellar for you! :th1:

    Bishops move is in the top 5 English blends there are that is always available. Blend 00 is incredible a true all day everyday smoke for Burley/ Virginia lovers. PPB is the perfect burley, nothing more to say. Basically burley was the big thing when Uhles opened their doors back whenever they opened so the blended that and stuck with it. It's what they are known for. The English blends no matter how strong or toned done all have great balance and taste. Each of the tobaccos blended make a their presence. No matter what you choose if you give it a shot you will not be disappointed.

    Perfection Plug Burley. Mild but enjoyable. It is a cool, long smoker. I am used to Lat blends with a bit more substance. I would get it again.

    Their Burley has a unique flavored cool smoking quality ... The nutty / woody flavor reminds me of a taste that's in Drum Tobacco . Uhles is very cool , like all the American old school B&M that make their own blends , they have a flavor that is unique to them . I've only tried their burley type blends and I liked all that I've tried :)

    Can't go wrong with their burleys and I keep 00 and Perfection Plug on hand for those times when I want that good old fashioned burley taste.

    So how do you say, "OO?" Is it, "Double Zero? Zero, Zero? Double OTT? Oh, oh?" Honestly, which is it?

    Anyway, I think it's the best blend I haven't yet tried.

    Blend 44 is another I wonder about.

    Thanks y'all; I'm going to have to consider Uhle's for burley's on my TAD order... along with IRC.

    I love #00, and #44 is a good one too. Slightly sweet mix of VA and burley, very good stuff.

    But don't tell anyone.

    None of the above.

    Here's what you do... call them on the phone and tell them you want to buy some "Blend 000" (rhymes with You). It'll help if you say the "oooh" part in a high-pitched voice.

    Let us know how it turns out. :D

    Another thumbs up for Bishops Move here. It's my go to blend in that department. I also like Blend 71 a lot. It's a nice "smoky" smoke. Milder on the lat side that Bishops.

    This may be a code, or something. I wouldn't be hesitating if it weren't for your avatar. It's scarring the :poop: out of me!
