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...

Wow. This company is coming on strong.

Very good VaPer, embarrasses some competition who charge a much higher price point in terms of both the presentation, the price, and most of all, the quality.

Tangy, sour and grassy VA's with spicy and strong perique, this lit and burned very well to a fine ash.

Very impressed, this goes into the summer short term rotation right away.

Come on Sutliff, keep powering, there is a huge community cheering you on.

All I can say it's a pleasant but spicy light virginia with a nice dose of perique. Lighter virginia than Pease but better quality than DR. Much better than I thought this blender could produce. Not bad at all for its type. You must like perique though to favor this one.

Loose Cuts of Bright and Red Virginians with Perique Tobaccos

Tin Notes: Good Cuts and Colors of tobacco leaf with little roughage. Good Moisture Content. The aroma is Rich, zesty/tangy and somewhat pungent

The Burn: Easy to load and light, this tobacco mixture burns good from start to finish Good natural flavors of tobaccos, somewhat grassy notes from the Virginians. A Mild to medium bodied smoke with a slight sweet topping The Perique offers a nice earthy and a little pep to the overall profile.

Good Quality Tobaccos
