The various Virginias are grassy and hay-like as they are in the flake version. The differences between that and the plug is the latter is a little sweeter, and a little more floral, though the Lakeland strength is just a percentage point or two more noticeable. The flavors are deeper and stronger due to the pressing of the plug, which is common. It requires some prep and dry time, but I found it better if it’s not completely dried out. Otherwise, you’ll lose a little of what makes this even better than the flake version. Could be an all day smoke depending on how patient you are dealing with plugs. Burns slow, cool with a consistent taste and no harsh or bitter notes.
