You can't go wrong with any I mentioned. SWR, Prince Albert, C&D Pegasus, 4noggins Moe's Confetti, Amphora Original, ALL good places to start.
Back in the 80's when I was smoking cigs, I burned up many a can rolling my own out of PA...loved that stuff. I might have to pick up a can and relight the memories!

It's still one of the best.

I have been going back and forth on whether I like PA or CH better. Today I kinda realized that they are different sides of the same coin, so I don't really need to choose.. I should probably buy a tub of both. Bonus that I can still get PA at Walmart in my area though..

Great thread! I probably shouldn't have started reading it, because now I've got the itch to order stuff. LOTS o' stuff! :D

And that's a bad thing? Lol.

Tobacco keeps for a very long time if stored properly. Stock up on what you can afford when you can. One just never knows ..........

I'm not a prepper but I do have a prepper mentality.
Tobacco will certainly be excellent currency for trading in bad times.

they're even better mixed together!
Try one box of PA, one box of CH, and one 3.5 oz can of Walgreens Blender's Gold Golden Burley. Dry that Walgreens out first then mix and enjoy. Codger perfection.

Isn't that the basic recipe for Moe's Confetti? I have had that and thought it was very good.

Mac Baren Symphony is a good Burley based smoke. Then, there's Old Dark Fired which quickly became a classic. My favorite does remain Wessex Burley Slice and, in the OTC department, I have only had SWR which I have liked a lot. I do have tubs of Velvet and Lane Ready-Rubbed that I have not yet opened.
