A very popular rubbed flake, slightly stronger than medium, with a subtle fruit flavour. A tasty slow burner, good for outdoors.

Medium to Strong Mild to Medium Medium to Full Tolerable

The potent G&H-like Virginias provide a wealth of earth, wood, floralness, tart and tangy, mildly sour citrus, vegetative grass/hay, bread, some sugar, tangy dried dark fruit, cigar, tea, and mild spice and smoke along with light acidity. They are the lead components. The very earthy, woody, nutty, toasty burley is a strong supporting player. The fruit topping appears to be sweet and more sour mango. It mildly tones down the tobaccos. The strength is a couple of steps past the medium threshold. The taste is just past that mark. The nic-hit is a notch below the overall strength level. Won’t bite or get harsh. Has a few rough edges. It’s a little moist and you may feel the need to give it a light dry time. As per my usual custom, I did not do that. This broken flake product burns clean, cool and slow with a very consistent, deeply zesty rich, sweet and more sour, floral, nutty, mild cigar-like, lightly smoky flavor. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl; less than that with dry time. Requires some relights. Has a moderately lingering, pleasant after taste, and a tolerable room note. Not an all day smoke, but it is repeatable. Three and a half stars.

Taste was pleasant enough with some flavor. Was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for a sweeter taste. Will try with a brier and edit review if needed.

Bought in bulk form Wesley's.

Lovely sweet smell on opening the jar, definite summer fruit tones.

Comes ready rubbed but still requires a final rubbin before putting in your bowl.

I was very disappointed with my first couple of bowls. I could not pick up on any taste other than mild tobacco. I jarred what I have left and wrote it off as school fees.

However, I recently smoked a big bowl full and was pleasantly surprised. The baccy 'matured and aged' well for the 6 weeks in the jar.

This now has a mild yet sufficient sweetness to it that's not over powering. It's a lite easy going blend that can burn hot if over-smoked.

I will keep this in my rotation dor variety
