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.

A straight uncomplicated flue cured Virginia that is a little grassy and hay-like, and fairly citrusy with some honey and earth notes. It also has a very light spice hit. The nic-hit is just a shade past the mild mark. The strength and taste are medium. Ribbon cut for very easy burning, it requires few relights. Won't bite or get harsh, leaves no moisture in the bowl and will burn to ash with little trouble. Makes tons of smoke. It may be a one dimensional smoke, but it's a very flavorful all day no nonsense blend, and not every pipe tobacco product has to be complex to enjoy. Would make a good mixer, though I prefer to smoke it as it is. I give it three and a half stars out of four.

Reviewed as a cigarette tobacco: Fairly bland and funky fish flake cut doesn't stuff all that well. A nondescript VA, not bad but nothing special. C
