A premier league, super high quality tobacco made using only the finest Gold leaf Virginia leaves. Totally unique with the slight orange note you only get from the purest Virginia.

J. F. Germain & Son - Virginia Goldleaf.

It isn't much of a surprise where the colour of the blend's concerned: just a bit lighter than medium brown. But what does come as more of a surprise is the cut. I'd expected a blend composed of fine ribbons, which the majority is, but there's a few bulkier broken flakes in there too. The hydration makes it ready to pipe straight from the pouch, so on we go:

There's no question from me regarding the high quality of the flavour: sharp, citrusy, and lively. The burn from G.V. is very even and steady for the whole trip, it doesn't really need much attention, at all. I couldn't detect any orange at first, and didn't really believe the description, but towards the end of my first bowl what began as a nebulous citrus taste transpired into quite a clear orange one. To be negative, it can bite a touch if I over-draw my pipe, so I puff gently.

The room-note's nice as it's pretty light, and the nicotine's mild.

This is a cracking straight Virginia:

Highly recommended.
