The tangy sweet red Virginia short ribbon is complemented by the citrusy sweet bright flue cured Virginia thin flake. The red Va. is the more obvious of the two Virginias. The perique is both granulated and ribbon cut, offering some sweetness with bursts of pepper. Burns well with few relights; smooth and dry with no dottle, and no discernible topping. A pleasing all day mild to medium VaPer for those who want some spice during their smoking day. It's also tinned in the MacBaren style.

...a bit different kind of VaPer...really quite a fine tobacco I think...

There are only a few Sutliff tobaccos that I enjoy and this one certainly got my attention. This is not "dark & brooding" like other VaPers, yet maintains its character from first light to finish.

The taste is light and "airy" providing a pure tobacco taste along with the two cuts of Perique playing back and forth nicely.

3 stars for the time being, but will update my assessment as I smoke a few more tins.

...a pipe is to be savored...
