Kapt'n Brammers - Rolling Home
Finest Virginias, some Kentucky and Oriental are exposed to high pressure for seven days, to then mature under reduced pressure for another four weeks. The result is well worth showing: Pure tobacco, with smooth sweetness, soft and gentle.

These days, Dan Tobacco's VA blends have a bit of a mixed history with me; DT use VAs a lot, and their uncased VAs are certainly top quality leaf. Yet they seem to specialise in the mild/very mild VAs, at least with their blends I had the chance to try out so far.
Imagine my surprise with this one, then. Opening the tin, I got a waft of VA grassiness with a lot of sweetness and a touch of spice. The leaf is a very bright ready-rubbed with little colour variation, perfect to smoke straight from the fresh tin.
On lighting, the VA is present from the beginning, the Orientals and KY join it a little later on in both taste and aroma. The taste is beautifully sweet and satisfying; the strength builds up throughout the bowl towards a rather gentle crescendo at the bottom, leaving behind a salt-and-pepper ash and no dottle.
Not a blend to wow me with its strength, it's a perfect morning tobacco for me: straight tobacco, satisfying taste and room note, gentle and cool burn, no leftovers. Beautiful.
