"Maiden Blush" is an old variety that was grown extensively for drying.

I've been unhappy with the apples we dried this year - they were too 
tart (Goldrush) or utterly bland and tasteless (mystery apple #2), and 
since we have opportunity to put in a few more trees, I'd like 
suggestions for good ones for drying.  Ideally late, large, and disease 
resistant (although we've had next to no disease problems with the 
apples, just lots of worms)

The online resources I found don't seem to talk much about drying - 
unless that's counted under "cooking"?

The new tress will be semidwarf, and have to deal with clay soil, 
blackberry roots, and summer heat and sun, and it's along a road some 
distance from the house, so might get some pilferage - a less beautiful 
apple might be less tempting.
