Lane Ready Rubbed (Edgeworth)

Edgeworth Ready Rubbed is back!

For years, there was a familiar dark blue tin and pouch that contained one of the smoothest Burley blends ever. Toward the end of its manufacture, it was made by Lane Limited, but then they couldn't use the name any more. People have clamored for the return of this tasty tobacco, so Lane is responding by bringing back this blend that is worth its edge under the new name Lane Limited Ready Rubbed. Welcome back an old friend.

A bit dry in the pouch but still a good tobacco. So good that I ordered the 14oz. can. I will write another review when I am done with the can.

Very good burley tobacco
Edgeworth all over again and I smoked a lot of it back in the day. Just getting back into pipes (which I prefer) as I could not find tobacco locally. This is not an English it is plain and bland but a good smoker with a good clean taste. Probably a good place to start and see where your taste buds want you to go but if your like me you will just order more with an fill of something else on occasion (Dunhill early morning).

Good satisfying smoke. For the money I like something like HH porch swing better. If I by more it will be the bulk version

Simply put, good flavor, even burning burley, no bite.

Awful! Very disappointing because the reviews here are usually spot on. Extremely bland. It's like smoking a bowl of nothing. On top all that, it won't stay lit. I've packed it a number of different ways and cobs to Dunhills with the same problems. FYIB: I'm not a newbie.

A Favorite from my youth returns
I began smoking a pipe at age 15. The first thing I tried was Paladin Black Cherry. So of course after a few pleasant puffs my mouth was scorched! However I was not dissuaded from pursuing pipe smoking. One day I tried a blue pouch of something called Edgeworth Ready Rubbed and well, I loved it. It became one of my favorites. Years later I again began to smoke a pipe but Edgeworth wasn't to be found at the news stand or drug store as in my youth. The brick and mortar store didn't have it and even when the internet became my preferred place to shop for tobacco I couldn't find it. I became an "English blend" smoker but still smoked other varieties including another old favorite, Carter Hall. I just tried this new Lane Limited ERR re-do and it's wonderful. While it's been many years, this is what I remembered it to be, a very smooth, bite-less, creamy, nutty, satisfying Burley blend, nicer than Carter Hall. LLRR isn't heavily flavored like an aromatic but has enough flavoring to enhance the natural Burley flavor. What a pleasure. I highly endorse this reincarnated classic tobacco.

Ready rubbed and reliably convienet.
Great bag aroma which is shown in the mild room note it gives off. Great to mix in with some value pipe blends for a quick rollie, or awesome straight up in a stubby glass pipe. Overall 5 stars for p&c delivery and customer service as always and about a 4 for the ready rubbed itself. Id say ill buy again if i end up not liking Granger to be used for the same purposes.

It's OK.
Based on reviews I was really hoping for a great codger burley. It's not. It is OK. I will not mind smoking what I purchased but I would not buy again.

Not much to it.
Overall a good tobacco. For my tastes, it was just way too mild and just there. I may blend it with another tobacco or just trade with someone who really likes it.
5 out of 5
Very tasty and satisfying Burley. Minimum relights, and burns a long time. Seems to be better in a cob for this casual smoker.
5 out of 5
Best for any time, but full of flavor.
if I could have only one kind of pipe tobacco for the rest of my life, this would be the tobacco I choose. It's full of flavor. I get the molasses and burly. Maybe a little coco too. Not only will I buy more to smoke now, but I'll stow some away for the apocalypse.

Solid Burley not complex
This OTC is growing on me. I really like Velvet and CH. I recently tried LL and at first I was not impressed. I have continued to smoke this in a cob and brier. It gets better with each bowl. It has a nice pouch note. It pack well and lights easy and stays lit. It burns to a nice light gray ash and leaves no goopy mess in the bowl. This does not bite and is a nice smoke to start the day along with ending the day. If you like burly and a smoke that is not complex you should enjoy LL.

First Try with Lane Limited
I just received my pouch of Lane Limited and I wanted to try it quickly. The pouch note I liked. It reminded me of a burly from back in the day. The moisture content was how I like to receive tobacco, not to moist or dry. Not sure how to describe the cut but was not ribbon. Sort of like SWR. It did pack well. I did my pre light then tampered it down lightly and relit. It stayed lit just about to the end. I like that. It burnt down to a dark gray ash without any goo like an aromatic might leave. This was to me a nice light burly blend. Very mild nutty taste. I did not pickup any chocolate taste. The flavor stayed even through out the smoke. No bite and I smoked it hard and then slowly. Comparing to CH, LL is a little less flavorful but I like both....depending on my mood. Much better than SWR.

The real thing
Years ago, Edgeworth Ready-Rubbed was my everyday smoke. This is the real thing - just as I remember the original.

Ready Rubbed by Lane is a quality tobacco.
I must say that I have never tried the original Edgeworth Ready Rubbed. Lane RR is a quality tobacco. In its own right it is an enjoyable smoke. The moisture content out of the tin seemed just right. The tin note is one of slightly sour tobacco with not much top note presenting itself. Tobacco is clearly the player with such a subtle hint of chocolate that it's hardly noticeable. The room note I'd describe as a pleasant tobacco aroma. There is virtually no bite. Comparing it to Match Edgeworth I would say that the Match is sweeter with a more noticeable top note of chocolate and maybe molasses. Match is a cube cut whereas the RR is more of a roll-pressed sliced-cut, if that makes sense. I find I like to rub out the Lane RR to make it easier to pack and light. RR takes to a light easily and burns well, although a few relights seem necessary in the beginning. You don't want to puff this hard to keep it lit or you may get some bite. The ash is dark gray with white speckles mixed in. This is a good all day smoke. Nothing remarkable screams out above the taste of Burley. If you like a good OTC type of smoke, then this is one you should look into.

Not quite Edgeworth, but still a great smoke
Sublimity in a can? Not exactly. Lane Limited Ready Rubbed is a very good representation of the classic Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, which, in its final days on the market, was also blended by Lane. But Edgeworth was a cube cut, whereas this is more of a crimp-cut ribbon. Edgeoworth was also a bit darker, a bit fuller, a bit moister, a bit more fruity and deeply sweet on the nose, a bit...well, it was just a bit *more* than this new version. I can't quite put my finger on why. It's possible my perspective on the matter is biased. It isn't biased by nostalgia, since I never really smoked a pipe in Edgeworth's heyday. Rather, it's biased by the lone sample of Edgeworth I've ever smoked: a 14oz tub, procured almost by accident off of the dusty shelf of a small local shop, which had held up remarkably well for being at least 4 years old. Those years in the tub had done wonders for the Edgeworth. Perhaps they'll do wonders for Lane Limited Ready Rubbed, as well. Only time will tell. Regardless, I found this blend, smoked fresh, was a very solid and old-school burley. It will definitely satisfy your jones for something resembling Edgeworth, if that's what you are seeking. But it won't be entirely the same. I'm not sure anything currently on the market is.

More Molasses
If Lane wants to get their rating up to 5 stars,they only have to get the molasses back into the blend so that its presence is more notable than it is now.

An Old American Standard
I'm pleased with the Lane Limited Ready Rubbed iteration of the better know Edgeworth pipe tobacco. It's close enough to call them the same thing. It took several pipe fulls to get the subtle flavors, but once that was done I got the old flavors and a cool dry smoke that I used to get in the 1970's. I's a very good all day tobacco if you like simplicity. No bite, no fuss at a very good price.

Awesome Burly experience. Has become my everyday smoke. If you're a burly lover, you owe it to yourself to get a tub.

Back to the Good Old Days
My years as a pipe smoker were based on my first encounter with Edgeworth Tobacco. I remember the blue tin (it was a tin in those days) and sitting down at the end of a day to a pipe. I worked overseas for many years and when I would come home I would stock up on the tobacco. I would hold on to the cans and open them on special occassions. When I came back I found it and enjoyed it all over again. Then it disappeared and there came a search for something to replace it. NOw its back and I am very thenkful.

Tobacco into dust ??
On my 2nd or 3rd can, and the tobacco in my daily pouch is breaking down into almost dust. Not good. Might be getting too dry, but is moist in can. Will play with it some more, but probably won 't buy another can. Might try 2 oz of their bulk & see if same problem. Smokes OK, but don't like dust. George

Close enough for govt. work.
May not be exact,but it sure is a great smoke. Seems similar to SWR, but with a different top note. Got it as a gift from my Christmas leish list and really glad I got it. It has been moved to my birthday wish list and will no doubt show up on another list. Thanks PC.

I'd like the tobacco to
I'd like the tobacco to be a little more coarsely cut. It smokes ok but turns to very small flakes in a pouch.

Ready Rubbed
A great disappointment. This should not be advertized as Edgeworth. I first smoked Edgeworth (by Larus, I believe) in the late 1950s while at college. It came in a small flipup blue tin. It was about the only American made tobacco popular in the UK at that time. On and off I smoked it fairly regularly until around 2005 when Lane (Altria) dropped it.. It was always a favorite and the transition to Lane's did not impact quality or flavor. This is not Edgeworth as I remember it. It has neither the earthy brazil-nut background that was so unique and appealing, nor the mellow molasses flavor that rounded off a Burley to something special. Much closer, for those that never tried the real thing, is MATCH Edgeworth which does manage to get a lot closer (but not close enough, for this smoker). Standing on its own merits Ready Rubbed is a fair smoke but lacks Edgeworth qualities. I find the bottom third of the pipe just as rough as any average Burley. The 14oz tin I bought 2 months ago is still half full - and likely to remain so.

Ready rubbed yes, Edgeworth no.
This blend is advertised as a re-release of the original. Actually the P&C match is closer than the Lane version. The original Edgeworth had a nutty taste missing here and a cool burn from a small (maybe 2mm) cube cut; this version has neither. Despite this, it is a smooth, mild, flavorful smoke.

Lane Limited Ready Rubbed.
Have been ordering a lot of this blend. Pleasant flavor and aroma. Consistent cut and moisture content in all tins. No need to air dry before it becomes usable. You can smoke this day in, day out without tongue bite. Highly recommended for building solid cake in new pipes also. Five stars approved.

A Welcome Return
Received the canister of LLRR with some anticipation, having good memories of the original. The tin note was that nutty burley, cocoa, Molasses that brought me back. The tobacco came a bit moist and required some drying time before stuffing and lighting. When properly dried, it lit and smoked well. But fresh from the tin it required a few relights. This is very close to the original; a burley lover’s dream. Smokes cool, mild, nutty, with a hint of Virginia sweetness. The toppings are noticeable but do not detract from the tobacco flavor. Maybe there is slightly more cocoa here than in the original, but let’s not split hairs. This is a very good neo-OTC blend, and a welcome return of an old classic. I Like it!

Great Burley!
The flavor is great...once you get it lit. I had and still have trouble keeping it lit. It's not as "cube" cut as Edgeworth was. If it was cut a little different maybe it would stay lit longer. So, it's a bit fussy to keep lit, but while it's lit it's really good. If Lane worked on the cut I suppose that could help.

Lane Limited Ready Rubbed (Edgeworth)
Delivery was as promised and shipment was well packed and in good shape. The price was the lowest I could find on the internet. What more could I ask?

A Good Copy
I have smoked Edgeworth off and on since the early 1970's and exclusively from 1993 to about 2005. So, I have probably smoked the original Laurus Brothers blend as well as the Lane versions. The original Lane version seemed like the original, cubed cut and same flavor. Then sometime in the early 2000's, Lane lost the cube cut. This new version reminds me of what it was before they discontinued it. The cube cut version was an easy smoke with a great tobacco flavor. This new version is good but not what I remember.

Its rather pricy for what it is. A simple burley tobacco. It is rather bland tasting. Probably won't buy again.

Edgeworth Ready Rubbed was the best tobacco I have ever tasted. Lane Limited is a close match and I have switched to this brand from Sir Walter Raleigh.

lane Td. Ready Rubbed
many would refer to Lane Ready Rubbed as a codger burley and that is what it is. Nothing spectacular here but an all day smoke that requires little attention. There is a sweetness from the burley that is molasses-like, low nic value and perfect in a cob. it's been too many years since I've smoked the "original" but I'd say that it's close enough for fans of the blend. If you're looking for a straight ahead uncomplicated smoke then you'll enjoy Ready Rubbed.

Very Good
I can't compare it to the original since I have not tried it but I can say this is a good burley.
Customer Testimonials
A great tobacco! I never tried the original but love this tobacco. Has a wonderful tin aroma and smokes great. No bite even after a couple of bowls. This may become a new favorite.
It's back. It's the original, authentic, legendary stuff! I compared this against a decade old tin of ERR I had cellared and while the old stash seemed darker, both in color and aroma, I figured that has more to do with age than a change in recipe. When I cracked open Lane Limited Ready Rubbed, the aroma of nutty burly, sweetened by chocolate and molasses wafted into my grateful, smiling face and took me back to the Tinderbox 10 years ago when the guy at the counter recommended Edgeworth to me. He told me that it was superior to Prince Albert and Carter Hall, both of which I love. He was right. Soon after that ERR was no more! I was devastated. Now our prayers have been answered and the greatest burley blend of all time has returned. No if only they'd bring back Flying Dutchman. One can always hope.
Smoked Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in the 1970's, 80's and 90's, and was pleased to hear of the re-release of this blend. Unfortunately, this product is an approximation or "Match," if you will... it is certainly not bad at all, but there is something seriously missing in the taste of this blend. Rightly so they do not call it Edgeworth. Lane Ltd/Scandinavian Tobacco Group informed me that this is not the same blend they were producing before the discontinuation. Again, this is a very smokeable blend, but it is not Edgeworth Ready Rubbed as we knew it.
Bought 2 tins, glad I did. Welcome back old pard!!!!!!
Yes! It's the real, actual, good old stuff! Nothing compares to it, (though there are some very fine H&H blends that have gotten me through the Edgeworth-less years). I am so happy to have this back! It's not subtle, it's not complex, but it's so good! This is like meeting up with an old friend you thought you'd never see again.
What a relief to have this back! I have been carefully hoarding my last remaining tin of Edgeworth when this went out of circulation years ago, but now I can rest easy. This has been my go to smoke for years. Light on the tongue, pleasant, tasty, an all day smoker!
Smoked this for two straight days using five different pipes. Does not irritate the tissues of mouth or nose. No need to let it sit for an hour before enjoying. Not sticky or gooey at all. As a pipe smoker of more than forty five years I recommend this blend highly. In addition the order was processed and delivered on time. Thanks P&C. Will buy more.
