Lane Limited Bulk Burley and Black

Lane Limited Bulk Burley and Black
On my last visit to Cigar Train, Brian pulled out some Lane Limited, pipe tobacco samples that someone had dropped off so I chose a couple to try and here we are.

Right from the pouch this Burly, Cavendish blend had amazing aromas of smoky vanilla and perhaps a hint of bourbon.

I packed a bowl and fired it up. The first mouthfuls of smoke were a creamy super sweet vanilla flavor. The flavor was fabulous and it stayed like that until it was tamped. On the relight, the bourbon became the prominent flavor for quite a while then the flavor changed again. I'm guessing it was about the bottom third of the bowl, the burning tobacco developed a deep, rich smoky toast flavor. I've never experienced this type of flavor complexity in my pipe.

As it ends up this is a blend I could smoke all day. There was almost no bite or tongue burning and it smoked cool to the bottom of the bowl.

You can pick this up at PipesandCigars.com for $2.50 per ounce.
