This is a fine ribbon, I'd just about call it a shag, with a surprising amount of light leaf. The bag note is sweet and citrus.

Packs and burns easily. This is a one light tobacco. As one might expect from the type of leaf here, this is all treble notes, with not a great deal of complexity. It is clean and simple and can veer towards harsh without a careful cadence.

This is likely a dual use tobacco; natural bright Va shags are not usual fare in pipe tobaccos. Still, it works ok in a pipe and I quite enjoyed this as a change of pace tobacco, particularly given its amazingly low price. As I noted with its stable mate, the LC Va and Oriental, this baccy would serve as a good starting point for pipesters wanting to add condimental leaf to customise their own blends.

Somewhere between a 2 and a three for me but marking as a 2 because the cigarette like taste of this baccy will alienate some.

The tobacco came at a good level of hydration for me. It is a mix of tans in a medium ribbon. There are some irregular chopped bits, but it is really a short ribbon.

Smoked, this is lightly sweet, and it is a pleasant smoke without much "wow." In terms of all the standard Virginia adjectives, it is a little grassy with a tart edge you approach and never quite get to. It was an easy smoke and was easy to repeat. It did not burn hot or require a lot of relights.

I have no regrets, but this did not punch any buttons for me. I can believe it would make a good mixer. I can also believe it would make a great tobacco to "tone" and extend blends that are too strong for you in terms of topping or nicotine.

Low Country Pipe & Cigar - Natural Virginia.

A well rubbed blend, mostly medium brown, with a few lighter specks. I can't fault the moistness.

There isn't much to say about the smoke. To me, it tastes like a 'bland' Virginia, and becomes exceedingly boring after half a bowl; it lacks the ripe, fruity, zesty, qualities that I like in a Va. There's a subtle sweetness, but this doesn't add enough vigour to raise the rating. Due to the fine cut it tends to burn fast, so requires a tentative technique.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant to tolerable.

Low Country Natural Virginia? Sorry, but I'm stuck on one star:

Not recommended.
