Sweet Va, nutty Burley, luscious Perique
Probably named for the town in Addison County, VT, Weybridge is a high quality blend of several brown tone and darker leaves of rough-cut ribbon. If it has any aromatic flavoring, I for one, could not detect it; and it burns cleanly, without gurgle or bite. The delicate sweetness of (what I think is red) Va and a nutlike Burley combine in a full-bodied smoke seasoned to perfection by Perique.
It produces a lush, almost succulent smoke. Its full body is nicely in balance with a medium-to-strong flavor and mild-to-medium strength, creating a smooth smoke that will not fatigue the palate. It is kind of woodsy, ideal for an Autumn stroll in the forest -- or at any other time, reminiscent of one. It has a naturally expansive flavor, so I prefer to use a pipe with a narrower chamber -- but a deep-bowled pipe -- because it seems to grow richer as it progresses, and you'll want to capitalize on that.
If Weybridge were a bread, it would be a hearty rye -- much more than simple white or wheat, but not overly assertive like pumpernickel. Smoking Weybridge will not distract you from any activities; but it will regale your palate with interesting tastes if you so choose. As a Vaper with Burley body it should appeal to most people who prefer natural tobacco taste, and it belongs on every Vaper lovers' short list of blends to try.
