A perfect Virginia blend for all day smoking - created from the Old Belt district, with a touch of sweetness added.

Current blender believed to be Kohlhase, Kopt; previously Murray & Sons of Belfast.

The latest blend is mediocre, sadly. I smoked this before blending went to Murray's and it was a wonderful tobacco in its original cut and blend and the natural sweetness was delightful. Tolerable even after Murray's took it on and 'ribboned' it - originally this was pure burley in well rubbed-out form.

Today it contains dark tobaccos (unknown) mixed and a pronounced cavendish texture and flavour, although I would describe the cut as more 'shag' as opposed to 'ribbon' - it's harsh and seriously bites back, even to the more experienced smoker.

Somewhat recommended here!
