The orange and red Virginias work together in harmony to create a mildly creamy, very smooth, consistent taste from start to finish. While not a complex flake by any means, the flavors include a fair amount of tangy ripe dark fruit earthiness with a little citrus and grass, and a minor spice note. The familiar McClelland “vinegar” smell barely translates to the taste. The nic-hit is mild. The flakes are easy to break part and a little moist, and though I didn’t dry them, you might prefer a light dry time. Burns cool and clean with no weak or harsh spots. No chance of bite even if you puff hard, though I recommend a moderate cadence. Requires a few relights, and leaves little moisture in the bowl. The tangy after taste pleasantly lingers a little. An easy going all day smoke.

Many old timers (and unfortunately, I guess I am one), say that Millennium was one of the finest and naturally ripe and sweet Virginia tobaccos ever produced. Similar to McClelland's 5100 in the flavor department but with more depth, and similar to McCranie's original '83 and then 2000 crop Red Ribbon with a little more strength. Indeed, a fine and classic Virginia.

It's hard to add anything to the previous review; this tobacco is simply astounding, one of the best orange Va's ever. Bob and PCCA, in combination with McClelland, produced many of the finest Virginia blends. If the production had been higher, I'm sure that PCCA blends would have the highest overall 4-star ratings. I give this one a 5-star rating!!
