Sutliff Sweet Virginia is a delight for Virginia fans. This is a broken flake that burns well, and the chunky cut keeps it from getting overly hot as long as you don't puff furiously. Notes of hay, grass, citrus, and honey are all noticeable in this pleasantly straightforward blend of flue-cured tobaccos.

Notes: Bright Virginia tobaccos pressed and tumbled out, naturally sweet.

Mild Extremely Mild Mild Pleasant

The Virginia provides citrus, grass/hay, and is slightly floral/woody. A sweet topping is present. Maybe it's sugar, but I detect a very slight honey note, too, which may be from the tobacco or not. Has little nicotine. Very uncomplicated product that burns a little fast, and needs to be sipped to avoid potential harshness or bite.The flavor is consistent all the way through. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs few relights. Has a decent after taste. An all day work and play Va. that doesn't require much thought. Two and a half stars.

I'm not normally a fan of straight VAs, but this one is really nice - just a little natural sweetness, but none of the "sharpness" that I normally get from VAs. Burned well; no relights required throughout the bowl, and vitamin N is subtle.

Mild None Detected Mild Very Pleasant

Sweet, woodsy brights. Surprisingly good. No flavoring or tangy weirdness, as far as I can tell all they used is sugar. Just fine for smoking on its own if you like bright virginia tobacco.

Room note is popular with non-smokers. I have had nothing but compliments, typically something like "that smells sooooo good!" etc.

Burns hot and may bite if pushed, as one might expect, but that is the only downside to it.

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

A rather less than average Virginia. The tobacco taste is flat, drab, and uninteresting. What flavor is there is provided by a sugary topping that contributes some extra sweetness. This is presented in a broad, chop-cut that I believe is intended to slow the burn rate, but regardless of the cut it still smokes pretty quickly displaying a slightly sharp and crude edge.

This could be useful, perhaps, only as a blender combined with some Burley to help to subdue bitterness, but overall there's really not much worth recommending.

Mild Extremely Mild Mild Pleasant

Sutliff Tobacco Company - Sweet Virginia (707).

A coarse, medium brown, mixture that includes a few yellow pieces. The pouch doesn't smell particularly sweet, it gives a straightforward grass and hay Virginia note. This was from Cup O' Joes and the bigger pouch they use to package loose blends usually ensures correct hydration. Sometimes it's a bit dry, but I rarely get a damp blend.

I enjoy the smoke, Sweet Virginia's a fitting name. The tobacco has a mellow Virginia flavour, with lots of hay and a touch of sharpness; I get more of a mild hay flavour than caustic citrus. I suspect a sweet casing may have been used, the sweetness has a little more fervour than I'd expect to emanate naturally; either that, or it's one hell of a sweet Virginia. It can burn a little warm, and give a me spot of tongue bite if it isn't approached gently. But, I don't mind that, I just smoke it in an applicable manner.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Sweet Virginia? A good blend that deserves a recommendation:

Three stars.

Mild Very Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

Sweet Virginia, this ready rubbed imparts a light taste of honey, sweet hay, and a slightly bready taste that lingers on the palate. An uncomplicated, all day Virginia that does best when puffed with a moderate cadence. I find this blend very enjoyable and have some stowed away for aging. Definitely recommended. 3 stars.
