I learned a lot about the process reading the article, I think I will keep my day job, that’s a lot of work!

This does explain a little about why I have a love/less love relationship with burley.
It is a great winter tobacco. old joe kranz is very spicy but quite "heavy" in flavor. the power allows very short bowls, 5-10min, with all the power you need. Outside of that I have not found a burley blend I really like. I tried c&d burley 1,2,3, and left 4 and 5 for later this year. Semois I like but only as an occasional treat. I do have that black locust sun bear special release from c&D but everyone said to age it. I have briar fox, the burley 4 and 5, bowlegged bear, billy budd (blue label) pegasus, lunchtime blues epiphany, all with burley that I am waiting for cooler temps before trying. I will say wide bowls help burley a lot but I still find orientals, Va/pers much better. Nutty flavors are better than earthy flavors in burley but nutty flavors are more rare. I wish there was a magic formula for making burley taste better to me of course if there was would I know about it? a lot of blend out there. All in all if it was burley or nothing I would have burley. I forgot to mention the one blend with burley I do like. c&d mississippi mud. the perique tames the burley keeping it as a supporting tobacco rather than the leader. being a perique blend I dont automatically think of it as a burley..lol
