Georg Huber's personal Virginia specialty: three different Virginia tobaccos pressed and then cut into ribbon-flakes. Finally a little honey-flavour is added. This is an exclusive flake with a gentle aroma.

Notes: Formerly known as Virginia Honeydew Flake.

There’s some darker flake in the mix with the golden which offer a bit of very tangy citrus, a little bread, lots of straw and grass, as well as a little fermented ripe dark, sugary fruit, earth, wood, and a pinch of spice, along with an occasional hint of tart sourness. The light honey topping contributes to the experience without muting the inherent characteristics of the Virginias. The strength level is a step past the center of mild to medium while the taste falls a hair short of medium. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. No chance of bite or harshness, but there is a slight rough edge. The mildly moist flakes easily break apart to suit your preference. Burns cool, clean and a little slow with a very consistent, rich, deep flavor from top to bottom. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires some relights. Has a pleasantly lightly lingering after taste. Can be an all day smoke. Formerly known as Virginia Honeydew Flake.

This stuff is amazing. Really a soft and gentle Virginia-ribbon. It reminds a little of Orlik Golden Sliced, a little less fruity, a bit sweeter. The honey is not overwhelming at all. I almost thought, i could taste a bit of Perique but i think the baccy is to mild. With Perique it would be more spicy. Maybe i should try to put some Perique in it, could become even better.

This flake tobacco comes in a single, long, mottled brown, rolled up strip, so you have to cut or tear off a slice that fits into your bowl. The tin note is dominated by pleasantly sweet, grassy, haylike Virginia scents with only a hint of honey.

I usually use the fold and stuff method for filling my pipe, because I find it gives you a cooler, more complex smoke than rubbed out. Like most flakes, lighting may require a little more time.

The taste, too, is lead by the tangy, natural sweetness and aroma of the Virginias grades in the blend reminding me of a freshly cut lawn. The sweet-tasting honey(dew) flavoring is noticeable, but subtle in the background rendering this a delicious, satisfying smoke. The tobacco burns down evenly and dryly to some light grey ash.

The room note is sweetish and rather pleasant.

I was given a nice sample of this by a pipe-colleauge and at first I wrote this off as some ChooChooTrain-alike and ChooChoo was a tad too sweet, a bit too less tobacco-y for me. But sticking my nose into the sample baggie a very natural scent is swirling out. Barely detectable a mild honey-note is present. Mostly unconspicious smell of tobacco-y Virginia.

The ribbon-flakes are lovely and quite a joy to handle.

On first light I instantly noticed the very mild honey flavoring in the back, as it was underscoring the bready, very grassy of fresh mown grass and mildly citrusy-tangy Virginia, which was slowly building up the listed aromas whilst the first few puffs. Evolving into a very tasteful Virginia melange that's really just speckled with dew of honey. This blend is not overly sweet and has decent spice to make this close to being full-bodied, yet mellow and smooth.

No rough edges, all is in balance and it never bites nor does it get harsh. Even tho this won't make a place in my daily rotation, I'll have to give it credits for being much more natural than ChooChoo Train who I ratet 3 stars. Tobacco underscored by a mild flavoring, not the other way round.

Similar Blends: less sweet, much more natural version of, , Dan Tobacco - Choo Choo Train (Anniversary Blend).
