The lightly grassy, citrusy, slightly hay-like, bready, gently floral golden brown Virginia is the lead component, and also sports the slightest hint of honey possible. The dark fruity, very earthy dark Virginia is a tad more than a condiment, and has a touch of fermentation. In the background is a small portion of a woody, lightly spicy, dry, earthy tobacco that tastes like an Oriental. The strength is a step or two past the mild level, and the taste is in the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is mild. Won’t bite or get harsh even when pushed, and has a very consistent, comfortable smooth sweetness, without being overly sweet. The tobacco is lightly moist, and the coins easily break apart to suit your preference. There’s some loose cut in the mix as well. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace, and easily burns to ash. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires just a few more than an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste and room note. By design, it’s a milder Virginia blend with a twist than some others on the market, and though it’s not complex, it makes for a easy going all day smoke. In the category of mild Virginias, it gets four stars.

I picked up a tin of the new Yellow and the new Green to try.

I popped the Yellow one first as it was said it was the milder of the two.

Presentation: Very small coins. Much smaller than LBF or the other coins I'm used to. The tin is tightly packed when opened. Tin note was fairly sweet and had a prevalent hay smell.

Prep: The moisture seems about perfect straight from the tin. I took two coins and folded them into a smaller Blue Room Briars Canadian.

Lighting: Char light, tamp, and then one light got me through the bowl.

Taste: start out sweet at the light with a pretty light taste from the virginias. Mid way through I got a little bit of spiciness. Not overpowering at at all to my taste. More Nic in the 2nd half of the bowl but not so powerful to be annoying or overpowering.

Burn: A little bit hot in the bowl, but in the small Canadian never required a relight. Burned down to ash with minimal moisture in the bowl.

Overall impression: The small coins provide an interesting presentation. The flavor is good. Not sure it will make it to my rotation, but an overall good experience that I'd recommend you try. I preferred the new Green to the Yellow.

I'm going to jar the rest of the tin and I'll update if the taste changes with some aging.

Pipe Used: Blue Room Briars Canadian

Age When Smoked: Fresh from Tin.
