The very citrusy grassy, hay-like flue cured bright Virginias also offer a little dark fruit, slight wood and earth notes with a very minor spice hit. The nicotine level is very mild. Won’t bite, but fast puffing may result in a little tongue tingle. Unlike some entrants in this genre, there are no suggestions of cigarettes in the taste. Burns clean with an occasional rough edge, and a tad fast with a very consistent, one dimensional flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day smoke that also makes a good mixer.

Lane Limited - Bright Virginia.

It's a mixture of medium and light browns, and a little on the coarse side; the lighter in colour the ribbons are the bigger they are! Moisture's great and the pouch note is a standard meadow-like Virginia one.

In the smoke the flavours come from each end of the Virginia spectrum. I get a deeper, doughy, flavour, yet also some come from the sharper side of a Virginia; it's a well balanced taste. I can't identify any topping to B.V., it's an unadulterated blend. The taste of this is high quality, but the only thing to lessen the score is it tends to burn a bit quick.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Three stars.
