I always found that dark blue Drum is the only tobacco I can smoke consistently. The downside is the amount of un-rollable, un-smokable twigs per pack.
Old Holborn is nice too but has that fruity twang that I tend to get sick of.
What's yer favorite? I'd love some suggestions for branching out
I like the Drum aswell. I'm the exact same as you in that it's the only one I can smoke consistently. I started out on GV and Amber leaf but there's something about them. I think Amber leaf tastes kind of bitter. Golden Virginia isn't too bad but I prefer Drum as it seems smoother to me.
I've never tried Old Holborn but I've heard only good things about it.
I keep on forgetting to try it everytime I go to buy tobacco.
I always favoured Old Holborn and the sweet molasses flavour. I always found the quality of the tobacco to be higher then Drum (Duma), more leaf and not so much 'branch'. The leaf cut tends to be longer then other RYO tobaccos which makes for a less dusty smoke for those that use roach rather then filter.
I think the Old Holburn felt like it was 'burning a hole' in my chest.
Maybe I like it a little lighter, but I think that by far the best rolling tobacco is 'Cutters Choice'.
I know what you mean about Amber Leaf, I always described it as being like smoking second-generation tobacco.
One brand I used to be especially fond of was Van Nelle zware shag, from Holland. It was incredibly strong, but that only meant I was fully satisfied after a skinny rollie. Yum
I'm on Golden Virginia and i won't be turned. I don't like the smell of Old holborn or Amber Leaf.
Golden Virginia is my favourite.
I have tried Drum tastes like crap and makes me feel sick when I'm hungover.
Amber leaf just tastes horrid.
Cutters choice would be my second choice.
Never had Old Holborn that will be on the list next time
Cutters choice mostly these days, have the odd batch of amber leaf if they dont have cutters.
i'v sampled them all even pipe tobacco rolled up
cutters by far the best followed by amber
golden vagina followed by old halborn, lovely stuff...
drum is ****, tastes like ****, rolls like ****, and is full of big branches...
golden virginia ftw!..
forgot to mention rizzla skins only i find theres a funny taste off the like of zig zag ,swawn, etc.
When I take notions of having rollies, it's usually Cutters' Choice, or else Golden Virginia.
Amber Leaf of Golden Virgina. Got some of the latter in France cheaply (€7 for a 40g pack), so smoking that atm. Amber leaf in one of those small boxes is my usual, though.
