Murray Sons & Co, Ltd Murray's 1921 Cunningham

Murray's 1921 Cunningham is a true Navy Flake tobacco. Sweet, bright, flue-cured tobaccos are melded with a light splash of zesty perique and a hint of rum before being firmly pressed into cakes and sliced. If you're a Virginia fan, this is an ideal blend to cellar, as it will improve greatly with age, but is rich enough to enjoy today.

Every now and again, one opens up a tin to horrible; silence. At that moment you realize the seal is not intact and the tin's guts have dried out. This was my fate trying 1921, so take this review with a grain of salt.

The contents smelled of manure, Virginia this was, Rum? it was not. This is not to say it was a bad thing, but the Aromatic fan in me was a bit bummed. For being an open tin, the flake was obviously dry and more crumbly than I would of liked, yet was still manageable. Turning into a shredded biscuit that packed nicely and smoked hot. The lit product was the standard Virginia nutty/hay experience, without any added flavor I could detect. The strength and nicotine were squarely medium and there was a tad bite (likely from being dried out).

VaPer fans out there may want to give 1921 a whirl, as they may get what I didn't from the hint o' Rum spices, but for me, even a fresh tin wouldn't excite me. I'll just stick with some Newminster flake for my occasional Virginia fix.
