Notes: From Hans Weidemann: "The Red Fox is a straight Virginia blend made of bright and red Virginias. It contains ready rubbed Virginias, and also loose cut Virginias. The strength is, in my opinion, medium and the taste is not grassy; it's more malty, sweet and smooth. It should be an alternative to Haymaker and Sunset."

The main components are the red Virginias, which are mildly tangy, and are richly, deep ripe dark fruit sweet with a touch of fermented stewed fruit. They also have a very earthy, malty quality as well as a couple pinches of spice and wood, and a light sugar note. The bright Virginia takes a support role with a burst of citrus, earth, and hints of honey, grass, and sugar that underscores the red Virginias. There’s no topping. The nic-hit is just shy of the center of mild to medium. The strength and taste are a step below the medium level, but both sit squarely at that threshold after a few puffs. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean with a very consistent, mostly smooth and naturally sweet flavor from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights as it easily burns to ash. Has a very pleasant, mildly lingering after taste, and room note. This is an all day smoke with a little character to hold your interest as you go about your business. Three and a half stars.

In the German release the right name is MY RED FOX (Hommage To My Friends). It's a good blend, quite different from HU's Haymaker and Sunset (Virginia Flakes). The cut is a soft mixture nice to the touch, very easy to load into the pipe. The smell is fruity and pleasant, far different from most of the Straight Virginias. The smoke is constantly round, complex and bodied, without being aggressive nor heavy at all. Imho a good pal with Dunhill Flake, but much cheaper (33-35% less). Three and a half star

All that JimInks says, but a 5+ Star smoke for my taste - so full flavored and sweet with NOOOOO tongue burn at all - a new top 5 desert island treat for me! The sweetest deepest tastiest highest quality most wonderful all-Virginia leaf smoke I've ever had! The farther down the bowl, the more decadent and wonderful it becomes! Smooooth, coool, & sublime! Will hopefully be introduced into the world market this May of 2017... get it then while you can! A World Class Classic Champion!
