The red Virginia is richly tangy sweet, dark and ripe fruity with a touch of earth. Not much complexity, but that's the way red Va.s are. Burns well and even with a consistent smooth, creamy flavor, with just a little moisture at the finish. I did notice a little vinegar at the start, but it disappeared after just a few puffs. I really couldn't tell much difference between this and the vintage 2000 version. Nor could I really tell much difference between this and the 2008 ribbon version, except for this has a tiny bit more depth of flavor.
