Rich and sweet Virginia grades from India are joined by a tangy and tartly sweet Virginia leaf from the Philippines, cold-pressed for 3 days and followed by 30 days of subsequent curing in a friction press, which provides the finishing touch to this wonderful Virginia flake. This makes Sunset a beautifully balanced and particularly full and creamy smoking treat. You will love it !

A variety of light, dark, and red Virginias work together to create a creamy medium bodied flake with a little complexity and a very consistent flavor. Minor grass notes intermingled with earth, honey, citrus and tangy dark fruit sweetness with a slight tartness. The strength level borders on medium, while the taste is a step or two above that. The nic-hit is just past being mild. No chance of bite or harshness here. All natural flavors with no topping, it burns slow, cool, clean, very smooth and even with no dottle, and virtually no moisture in the bowl, which seems to be a trademark of HU products. Needs some relights. Has a pleasant after taste, and can easily be an all day smoke.

Sunset, just another Virginia Flake ? No way !

Inside the family of "unscented" Virginias, Sunset is, seen by its choice of leaf, truly something special. A nice sweetish flake, which appears quite "flowery" from its taste, and consistently "creamy" during smoking all down the bowl. No harshness or tongue bite, as often observed while smoking VA-Flakes - a true delight!

Sunset ? OK, a wonderful VA-Flake and a beautiful label painting presentation, even if smoking pleasure is more like a "Sunrise". I tend to recommend smoking this blend on a relaxing evening however - it is not an "all-day-smoke". Congratulation, 4 Stars !

Beautifully smooth and creamy smoke. A great blend. There is such a lovely silkiness to this sweet, fresh tobacco that, after smoking, the mouth is left with a warm, soothing aftertaste. Beautiful texture and cut in the tin, fresh grassy aroma, with a clean natural taste, sweet with a biscuity appeal. Similar to Haymaker, but more mellow. Simply Virginia and nothing else. Burns so well after a couple of lights and didn't need much relighting at all thereafter. This is another great handmade blend by a master blender. For me, it has been a great discovery. Highly recommended. And, as another reviewer has said, with age, this will be a wonderful vintage.
