Sutliff PS Breckinridge
Roughly half the tobacco farms in the United States are in Kentucky. This superb Non-Aromatic mixture of Kentucky Plug Cut Burley is fittingly named after John Breckinridge, a planter and U.S. Attorney General under Thomas Jefferson.
Taste: Mild to Medium
Room Note: Pleasant
The tin note was an earthy and leathery aroma from the Burley. The tobacco's moisture level was good right out of the tin. On the charring light and true light the earthy and leather flavors came to the front. About a third of the way into the bowl a nuttiness joined the flavor profile. Breckinridge burned cool and without any relights. The blend burned down to light gray ashes with no dottle. I can see Breckinridge easily becoming a all day blend.
