This review is based on multiple bowls smoked over the prior 10 days. The tobacco is from a fresh 7 ounce bag.
The long stringy ribbons need time to dry before they can be packed. I try to use a light hand when packing in order to avoid clogging the draft hole. Sometimes I’ll tear the ribbons into smaller pieces as an additional precaution. Nothing ruins my day more than a clogged draft hole.
Upon lighting, I sense nutty burley, some wood and fresh earth . I also note a pleasant non-chemical sweetness. The taste is consistent from start to finish.
It’s mild in body and taste. The nicotine level is barley greater than mild. It burns at a moderate pace, it doesn’t bite, nor is it harsh. It smokes well in cobs and briars, though I prefer it best in a cob.
00 is an uncomplicated, yet flavorful burley. It’s smooth enough to appeal to the ‘new comer’. It also has that special appeal that will be appreciated by veteran codgers.
Thanks Sam, solid as always. Big Uhle's fan here. 00, Perfection Plug and 300 are all top shelf for me. I'm running out of the latter two now. The only reason I won't order more is I have multiple tins of Wessex Burley Slice and Solani ABF on hand.
I'm still good on 00 in the cellar as I jarred a couple 14 oz bags. Uhle's 00 will give any Burley a run for the money IMHO.
Edit: As far as I'm aware, their double bag system is good for cellaring, maybe a waste of time to jar them until opened.
