I had seen the VPB line from D&R for awhile but was hesitant to try it because I have had so many bad bags of cheap tobacco. Mark Ryan the owner of D&R has never skimped on giving out good quality tobacco so I took the plunge and ordered the Red bag of VPB. Upon arrival I noticed that this is a vacuum sealed bag just like his premium line. When I opened the bag It smelled wonderful also bright orange and dark brown coloring...could this be?? Could it really be the same quality as other D&R products for only $15 per pound? After smoking a RYO cigarette I knew it was the same. This is the same quality tobacco that D&R uses in the premium lines just labeled differently for a different market. It really makes a heavenly cigarette. This is a great tobacco for someone who likes Marlboro cigs. It doesn't taste exactly like a Marlboro because that would discredit this tobacco. It actually taste better than a Marlboro!! Great daily smoker. Its a Virginia & Burley blend. I suspect it is just his Venguer put in a different bag. This stuff is better than any cheap RYO/MYO tobacco you will find. Highly recommend this to any one making cigs!

This is a solid mixture that's dirt cheap and satisfying on the palate. Think a smoother version of Half&Half minus the anise or heavy orange rind aftertaste. Smoking this out of a corncob as I write my impressions. There's a slight zest (Virginia) and subtle cocoa note (Burley). When I aired out for half an hour the blend had more pronounced malty, pepperish overtone. Best when smoked slowly and given a good tamper or two. It's a smoke as you putter around the house, all day companion. Only a few sticks to pick out but still worth the mulla. A real eye opener if you've never smoked a straightforward Virginia-Burley blend. Room note was subtle and pleasant. Caution, can become a tad ashy if oversmoked. This may very well be Better Smoke's twin.
