I'm always searching for a good natural VA and this tobacco (in fact all the tobaccos) by TAK is much hyped in Germany so I had to try this one.
Look is very nice like a whole thick Virginia carpet containing VA in all grades from darker brown to golden all pressed together. Smell is warm and grassy with citric above that nice tobacco smell.
I ripped a little shred apart from the cake and put it down in my bowl with no pressure then rubbed a bit more to fill the rest of the pipe. With this cake at the bottom it's a great way to ensure a nice draw resistance and a cold smoke.
This tobacco offers all the assets a natural Virginia can deliver. Warm sweetness accompanied by citrus and hey; reminds me of camphor wormwood. Some spicy notes here and there round up the smoke pretty well. Burns nicely, very cool and leaves nothing but light grey ashes in the bowl.
Great all day smoke that doesn't need much attention while smoking at a fair price. Not very special but exhausting all the possibilities of a VA.
