This is Two Timer with Virginia, and with that exception, the smoking qualities are the same. The burley is toasty, and very nutty with natural sweetness. The Virginia is a little grassy with some citrus and a touch of honey. While it may be used as a RYO, it’s a good smoke with a little nicotine punch. Puffed at a moderate rate, it’ll mostly keep its flavor and not get harsh. Puffed fast, it’ll have some cigarette notes, a little loss of flavor and possibly some harshness. Has no casing or topping. Burns quickly, but not hot, clean with no moisture. Nice, uncomplicated all day smoke that does even better with some hydration.

TTG is packaged in a standard size 2" high x 3" diameter pop top aluminum tin, at an ideal moisture level (though some will think it's a bit too dry.) Despite the 40gr. net wt., it takes some compression to re-pack it in a ½ pint Mason jar. I only recommend the tinned version. The bulk product is too dry -- even for me; and it may get crushed during handling and easily broken into something approaching dust.

This basic ribbon cut Burley blend is as nutty as I have ever tasted, and the Virginia sweetens it to perfection. It has medium strength; great mouth feel; good body; great smoke volume; and a pleasant, long lasting finish.

I give it four stars because it is the epitome of what it intends to be: the quintessential American Burley blend. Great as the first smoke of the day; as an all day smoke; and as a luxurious after dinner treat. Quality leaf.

Two Timer with the addition of the same Goldens that are in Ryback Gold. Same result. Bites me very hard.
