Here ya go guys.. any of you who are a fan of this stuff, or want to give them all a shot. I can't see myself really smoking any more of these, so I am putting them up for trade. If you have some Burley blends, or OTC type stuff you want to trade me, let me know. Would be nice to just send them all in one shot, but I understand if you are not into all of them. Doesn't necessarily have to be a 1:1 trade either, I am flexible.

all are 50g minus a couple bowls each -
Samuel Gawith, Commonwealth, Kendal Cream Deluxe Flake, Grousemoor

Gawith & Hoggarth Broken Scotch Cake

Mac Baren Latakia Flake

If that all was Cannon plug I'd be on it. Can't see it taking long to find someone.

I think you are a candidate for Double Down.

I think you might be right. Actually, I've found quite a few blends I like either in your TR favorites list, or highly recommended by you even before I found this forum. I have to step carefully though, as I do not quite have the constitution for strength that you do. :D

I think you'd like it too.

This is a consideration. I rated the Double Down as med-mild in strength, so less than Pegasus. Now that I have smoked a couple of pounds of it, I think they are about the same probably. The nicotine is a little sneaky in the batches of Double down I have tried. The flavors to me are a little more basic and perhaps subtle and that made me knock it down a notch on strength initially.

Have you tried Pegasus? It is the mildest of the great Runowski trifecta.

I have tried Pegasus, and I enjoy it. I also quite like Three friars. I've tried a number of C&D Burleys and the only one that I have had a hard time with strength wise is Haunted Bookshop. I really like that one too, but I just don't smoke enough to really build a tolerance to it.

Pegasus is (my opinion) king of the ribbon cut burley blends. Just the smell of it in a jar puts a smile on my face

I like that stuff, and other C&D blends, but they irritate my throat something fierce to where I don't even bother anymore. Wish I could enjoy them but it's more for you lucky dogs. Try Bob Bushman too.
