    Any Carter Hall lovers or haters?

    The Sutliff CH Match is pretty good too. Not sure how close it is to the original.

    Talk to me about English blends

    The only ones I would worry about would be an aeromatic with a heavy topping.

    Is there any protective coating to rub into the wood on top of the bowl? Mine is starting to turn black on one side from lighting it.

    Sutliff 507C and some of Cornell & Deihl's offerings. Especially Carolina Red Flake. Although they are all better aged which is why I just ventured i to cellaring. What about you?
