Just about the highest quality plain golden flue cured virginia ribbon I have ever smoked. I'm not primarily a straight virginia smoker but this was a simpler and pleasant change of pace that I enjoy occasionally. It's flu cured virgina so, there is some strength and heat but it's character overall is so pleasant. No grassy notes with light character and high notes of sweet hay and honey almost verging on spice. Of coarse this can be an excellent mixer but it's nature being so delicate that condimental leaf would tend to supercede it. I like smoking this type of tobacco with a cup of black coffee that reminds me of reading about an anecdote of secret rendevous and temporary truce between Union and Confederate soldiers to exchange northern coffee for southern bright tobacco. Highly recommended.
