A mild, pleasant Virginia
Everything a Virginia ought to be, and I write as one who does not particularly care for straight (or nearly straight,) Virginias, or flake tobaccos for that matter. Opening the can I was greeted with a fragrant primarily Virginia aroma, with a bit of sweetness that I will attribute to the honey. It rubbed out fairly easily, although I was left with a few larger pieces. It packed well, and smoked easily without a hint of bite, down to a clean dry ash all the way to the bottom.
This is a mild tobacco, and those who are looking for more of a nicotine hit will find this too bland. Like most Virginias, it tended to smoke a bit hot, but slow puffing kept it going at a nice pace, with only two relights.
When I finished the bowl, I stepped out on the deck for a few minutes before returning to my cave, and was greeted with a clean, pleasnt tobacco aroma, with nothing particular to distinguish it. My wife also found the aroma pleasant, but not particularly distinguishable.
Some personal notes: those who like mild, Virginia tobaccos will, I believe, find this an agreeable smoke. I thought it tasted too much like cigarettes, my principal complaint about straight Virginias. I detected no taste of honey, but did detect a slight sweetness throughout.
There was nothing about this tobacco to change my mind about Virginias, and I may smoke a bowl or two in a few weeks, but this won't be a tobacco I will be returning to very often.
