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.

Huber writes: Sie ist meine sehr persönliche Virginia-Spezialität: Drei abgestimmte Virginia-Spitzentabake werden aufwendig gepresst, mit dezentem Honey-Flavour edel aromatisiert und in den ganzen Flake-Platten geschnitten. Was so entsteht, ist ein exklusiver Flake mit ausgeprägt sanftem Aroma.

Notes: Due to the new regulations this is now called: Virginia Golden 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.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Medium 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, so I'll give it the whole 4/4 stars for top-notch blend under the countless "Virginia Honeydew" offerings out there.

Highly recommended to Virginia lovers, and aromatic fans who want to lean towards natural pipe tobacco blends.
