I ordered one pound of the C&D Red Virginia. This tobacco is stronger than I anticipated. I put the whole pound in a crockpot and set it on low for 10 hours. I can now smoke it although it has a big nicotine hit. Good this way or to mix with C&D Virginia Flake.

It's been a while since this was smoked, but what I remember of it is that there are more satisfying red virginias out there, such as McCranie's Red Ribbon. There are plenty of Red VA-based blends, such as Rattray's Red Rapparee and some Wessex blends.

I am reviewing several C+D blending tobaccos as a precursor to some blending experiments. I know not many people blend, but these reviews may provide some hints to those wanting to do so.

Sweet, deeply resonant and strong in flavor. Will bite if handled carelessly like most straight VA tobacco. Very smokey and woodsy - increases in cigar like texture down the bowl. Definitely some aging or stoving could bring out the best in this tobacco. But certainly good as it stands.
