The main tobacco is the fire cured red Virginia, which is very tangy, ripe fruit sweet with a bit of earth, and some spice. In a support role is the earthy, dark fruity pressed brown Virginia, which also has a few blades of grass, some wood, and a touch of floral vegetation. A pinch of raisiny, figgy, spicy perique lurks the background in most every puff, though I think it’s just a little more than a “pinch” as the description claims. The nic-hit is just past the mild level. The strength is mild to medium, and the taste falls just shy of the medium threshold. Won’t bite, and has no harsh or dull spots. Well blended, you’ll notice every nuance most of the time. The long flake is a little moist, but needs no dry time, and easily breaks apart to suit your packing preference. Burns at a moderate pace, cool, clean, and smooth with a consistent flavor from start to finish. Requires a minimum number of relights for a flake, and leaves very little dampness in the bowl. The after taste and room note are pleasantly sweet with some spice. An all day smoke which will hold the interest of the experienced smoker, and makes a good starter blend for those interested in trying a VaPer for the first time.
