I would like to add Wessex Burley Slice to the list. Its a straight Burley flake for one reason which is kinda rare. The only other straight i can think of is the Solani Aged Burley Flake. The wessex has such a deep earthy graham cracker taste to it, that its just amazing. It can be a tad difficult to obtain, and its available this second at Mars Cigars.

Imho , its th bst blend out there , especially if someone is into Burley , of course .. but if not , it's still the best .. lol ! It's the closest blend I've ever had to Edgeworth slices , is super similar and damn near as good

Oh heck, I have to add another that just popped in my head as I was thinking about Autumn [ cant wait for it now that its too freakin hot ] .. a fantastic member @leacha sent me some crossover samples last year to try , or early this year ... anyway , they were English / cavendish type crossovers . As usual , the C&D one , which I forget the name , was horrible .. harsh , bitey etc ... it sucked . The H&H one was similar to the C&D , so it suckd too . The McClellands TGL was very good , as was the Lane HGL , of which McClelland " copied " when Lane was out of HGL for a time or whatever ..... BUT ... Sutliff Aromatic English was the far and away winner ! Theres few crossovers I enjoy enough to buy after first trying ... IRC Dr. Bradley has been one for many years and its very unique and fantastic and always worth buying . But the Sutliff Aromatic English .. wow !!! Perfect balance and smoking blend ... and its a bulk blend !!!! Seriously , ya gotta love bulk as its so inexpensive

Really , Sutliff Aromatic English .. a perfect English / Cavendish cross over if ever there was

Y'all gotta get some Sutliff Ready Rubbed. It’s a match for Edgeworth Ready Rubbed. I never smoked Edgeworth but this match is a great all day smoke. It what I’ve been smoking today and it just gets better and better, pipe after pipe. If you like regular Sir Walter Raleigh you’ll love Sutliff Ready Rubbed. It’s slow burning and really mellow, sweetish without being overly so, with a room aroma like baking cookies. Sutliff says it’s cocoa, chocolate, and molasses in the flavoring and it’s all there. So good. Right at $27 for a pound at smokingpipes.com.

I have to agree, it's great stuff! I'll probably pick up another pound of it soon

You guys are killing me! I keep an excel spreadsheet with a tab for open, one for cellared, and another for gotta buy/try. My gotta buy/try list just grew a whole lot bigger! Nothing new to add, I'll just join in by saying that of the 31 tobaccos I've tried I wouldn't do w/o HH ODF.
