Default Help me find some good NON aromatics!

I am not interested in aromatics and my experience with pipe tobacco is limited to Squadron Leader and a few others. I love the smell and taste of Squadron Leader and was looking for some more recommendations for nice smell and tasting NON aromatics. Thank you.

Also, C&D Briar Fox isn't an aromatic right?

Jeepers Darrell... you just narrowed the picks down to about 10,000 blends.

If you don't like Escudo or Full Virginia Flake (or the other choices Neuromancer listed) there is no hope for you.

Briar Fox is a strait Virginia Krumble Kake which is a nice change of pace from the ribbon cut blends. If you're going to try some C&D blends I defintely would get some bulk Burlys. Old Joe Krantz, Night Train and Morleys Best are few of my favs.
I also concur that Penzance is a must try!

Hope you're feelin' better man.

I ended up firing up last night anyway, and tried some bulk Peter Stokkebye Navy Flake - good stuff. Also I got my tin of Bracken Flake back from that friend I'd kicked it to (he decided the pipe wasn't for him).

I'll bring you some of each this weekend. I think you'll like both. Those are my two favorites so far.

I'll also bring the Junkyard Dawg plus some others I have.
