|One of my early favourites. I remember it as being sweet and not really a biter. Since i have discovered tinned Virginia and Va/Per blends, i find it impossible to go back to the Old blends i started out with.
Nothing wrong with it though. I remember i used to mix it with about 30% black cavendish ( the thought of it makes me pucker up now, but at the time i really enjoyed it )
I guess for a newbie it will be a good smoke because it works well in all pipes and builds a cake very well.
For the record, i do remember it as being delicious.
When starting out smoking a pipe, i was looking for blends that had some VitN. As far as i know, most pipers start out with blends like these and it is here that i learnt the art of packing, tamping and taking it slow.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who are responsible for this site, you have no idea how much we appreciate it.
