Low County - Natural Virginia.

A very well rubbed-out ribbon, medium brown, with a great hydration to it. Although the blend contains a few coarser pieces, the majority's shag-like, so there's no pieces in need of discarding.

Something which reduces the rating is the temperature of the burn. Unless a gentle technique is used it becomes quite warm. It says there's a 'touch' of Turkish, but mine has the flavour of more than just a touch. The Turkish adds a fragrant, floral, taste. The Virginia accounts for a lot of the smoke, but has quite a mediocre flavour. It burns well, apart from the heat, and doesn't bite me.

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

It's not exactly my cup of tea! Two stars:

Somewhat recommended.

Mostly mid brown tobacco with a scattering of pale leaf. There is a sweet nondescript bag note somewhere in the brown sugar part of the spectrum and some spice on the nose that reminded me of cinnamon and cloves. It is a short ribbon cut that tends towards dry.

Takes a light easily and burns well.

This is solid red Va territory with bread like aromas filling the mid palate. Orientals provide a distinct sharp acidity on the top end and this marries with some lemon and grass from the Virginias. If this were a wine it would be a Riesling. It doesn't have a lot of complexity, nor is there appreciable transition as the bowl progresses. I haven't tried adding Lat or Perique to this blend, but given the price point this might be a good candidate for a base blend to experiment with. If you like baccy on the tangy and sharp side then this will fit the bill as it is.

I enjoyed this straightforward blend and will surely buy more of it.
