Blending - Dark Fired Kentucky Burley

This is a little-known component that I use for a variety of purposes. It is a dark tobacco, similar to Burley that is cured over open fire, giving the tobacco a smokiness that is much more subtle than Latakia, a deep earthiness, and a decent wallop. I like to use a bit in a Latakia-based blend to give it a touch of sharpness, or to add body to Virginias. High in nicotine, moderate burning quality.

Please note: Some of our blending tobaccos arrive in a dry state from the manufacturer since they don't add humectants to these tobaccos. We aren't allowed by law to add any moisture to the tobaccos we sell, so they may arrive rather dry, but will rehumidify easily.

Highly recommended for blending.
A little goes a long way to add some bass, body and smokiness to whatever blend you might find lacking or maybe just feel like kicking up a notch. Not as strong as I thought it might be smoked straight (which I did just to get a feel for it).

Reliable staple
Smoother and more smokey than some others(dfkb), but a bit less spicy. To be honest, I use it as my daily smoke, but some would be better off mixing it with a red virginia and a bit of black cavendish. Really, it mixes well with all sorts of tobaccos

Dark Fired Goodness.
Excellent blended or by itself. I recommend it if you want some good smoke. I smoke a pipe, but it was so good I figured I'd try a few hand rolls and it's equally good, although I prefer it in a pipe. Smoky(subtle), rich, shreds and ribbons of great quality, it's just about perfect to me.

Awesome Stuff!!!
I grabbed some of this to replace Latakia in my "American English" blend and it's perfect with a more subtle smokiness yet much larger wallop of nicotine! Awesome stuff!

This was a wonderful addition
This was a wonderful addition to a few of my home blends. It gave just the right amount of spice and smoky flavor. Love the American wood smell it gives off when smoking it. Harsh on its own but great for blending.

Feels like the first nicotine I ever used, every time. Who says you can't go back?
This. ^^^ Very happy and will buy again. I have also ordered pure Latakia, this DFK has a much less pungent/penetrating sort of smokiness.

Packs a punch
I wanted to try it straight for ryo since I have little experience blending. This is a good tobacco and is very much as advertised. Probably best as a blender. It was too strong for my tastes. As always great to deal with P&C.

Strong, Toasty, and Smoky
My couple of ounces of this arrived perfect for smoking right away. As the title says it's strong. So, I intend to use it for giving some bass to a couple blends that need some help. I do caution folks to remember that you'll get some smoky taste and a smoky aroma in the air around you. If you want to add that to your blend without using latakia, this is the one. I'll more than likely order more to add to some OTC blends that I have.

Dark fired burley
Very good for blending and mellow out your tobaccos. Works great with Seatlle Pipe Club, makes it burn lot longer and change up the flavor. I recommend it!

Not the smoky flavor I was looking for but good taste and no bite.

I've tried a few different blends but this holds the crown. Will reorder for sure.
Customer Testimonials
Hands down this is the best tobacco that Pipes and Cigars sells, that nobody else sells!!! It has plenty of smokey flavor and vitamin N. and I just cannot say enough about this tobacco. The blending tobaccos at Pipes and Cigars are excellent and cannot be bought just anywhere. If you like dark fired, dutch style tobacco with lots of nicotine, then you are sure to love this. Its very potent so use sparingly.
JS of Pasadena, TX
This is the cornerstone of most of my blending. I like robust tobaccos and I require a large dose of nicotine. This gets the job done.
JD of Gardner, IL
This is an excellent Burley tobacco for adding some flavor to a blend. It goes really good with a Virgina because of its relatively high nicotine content.
JS of Pasadena, TX
Outstanding tobacco. Blends well with everything I've put together. Great 1:1 with Matured Virginia Cavendish for a hearty all day smoke.
