This is a fine ribbon, I'd just about call it a shag, with a surprising amount of light leaf. The bag note is sweet and citrus.

Packs and burns easily. This is a one light tobacco. As one might expect from the type of leaf here, this is all treble notes, with not a great deal of complexity. It is clean and simple and can veer towards harsh without a careful cadence.

This is likely a dual use tobacco; natural bright Va shags are not usual fare in pipe tobaccos. Still, it works ok in a pipe and I quite enjoyed this as a change of pace tobacco, particularly given its amazingly low price. As I noted with its stable mate, the LC Va and Oriental, this baccy would serve as a good starting point for pipesters wanting to add condimental leaf to customise their own blends.

Somewhere between a 2 and a three for me but marking as a 2 because the cigarette like taste of this baccy will alienate some.

Pretty middle of the road as far as Virginias go. Not bad, but nothing impressive. I think it will be fine as a mixer, since I really like the Natural Virginia and Oriental from Low Country. Alone, however, there’s very little in flavor and little strength. I give it a rating of “Meh” with a dash of disappointment. 2 stars with maybe 3 as a mixing tobacco. I’ll need to mix it with something just to keep my interest.

Straight Virginia flakes are some of my favourite tobaccos. I especially enjoy GLP Union Square and C&D Opening Night. Unfortunately, I've never, in 30somthing years of pipe smoking, ever been able to get a Virginia ribbon to behave for me. I was hoping this one, from a company and blender I like and made of quality ingredients, might be the one. Sadly not. My bag arrived at a good humidification level so I filled and fired up a medium sized briar straight away. It packed and lit well but, from the beginning, it burned hot, no matter how hard I tried to control my puffing. I'm honest about my less-than-refined palate in my reviews but, usually, I can at least get some sense of what the brethren are talking about. Not with this one. I got just a hint of that mixed Virginia flavor toward the last 1/4 of the bowl, a few puffs before it went out. For now, I can't recommend it and, as I said, it arrived at what I would consider optimum smoking moisture level. But I'm going to let it dry out a little more and give it another go. Maybe that will make all the difference or maybe, as others have suggested, it will render it suitable for a mixer. Stay tuned.
