One day next week I will be passing through a small town that with a somewhat decent B&M that has a wall devoted to bag tobacco. Currently I have SPRT and SP Whiskey. What's another good Burley based and non aromatic bag for me to try? I remember the place having Jester, 4 Aces, Cherokee and Gambler. There are probably some that I can't remember.

Recommend one or two for me please.

I have tried most of these. The only ones I buy a second time are SPRT, and SP Mellow. Of the SP Whiskey and RumCured, I prefer the Whiskey.

Not all of it, but I believe some RYO tobacco was packaged as pipe tobacco. My understanding is they were able to bypass steep taxation on cig tobacco if they labeled it pipe tobacco. I don't know why there would be a difference in pipe and cig tobacco tax, but that was the rumor. 8-)

Most are either aro or " pipe poser " tobacco ( bad cut cigarette tobacco ) . Other than what's been mentioned , the regular Red Cap is at least decent , though it makes a fantatic cigarette .
Something cheap like that type stuff , though in a regular size pouch , is 5 brothers . It's pretty awesome as pipe or cigarette . It would be one to try . I have yet to try the SP natural .

Super value has an English and a natural . I've not had either so I can't say how thery are
