A Very Good Virginia Blend

This tobacco had around 1 year of age on it when reviewed.

The tin aroma of this blend is a straight forward, lightly tangy tobacco smell with a hint if hay. The moisture content was good for smoking right away, but some may prefer to dry it a little. I rubbed out a few of the broken flakes and loaded my pipe.

From the beginning there is a nice tobacco flavor with a very light hint of sweetness. The sweetness in this blend is not as pronounced as in most other Virginia blends.
Around mid-bowl it started picking up some in the strength department and I started picking up on a very light spiciness. This flavor profile lasted through to the end of the bowl.

This is a very good blend that is tasty. It smoked cool and dry. It will bite if pushed to hard, so make sure that you smoke this blend slowly. I Highly Recommend it!
