John Cotton John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia

From P&C's website: A blend of sweet Virginias is first pressed and then sliced into a flake. It's then tumbled into a ribbon, allowed to breathe and put back into the mold to be pressed again into a crumble cake. This darkens the leaf, gives it a deeper, richer flavor, and takes much of the "edge" off the blend. Finally, there's a Virginia tobacco that just about anyone can enjoy - John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia. John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia was the winner of the 2019 Chicago Bowl.

It's a funny old world. I opened my tin eagerly, was happy to be greeted by a little pressed cake. It smelled like virginia. I put some in my pipe, and it tastes.... like virginia. It's a little ashy and a little punchy, this is maybe an old-school offering, but I just don't like smoking this kind of thing much. Reminded me of the Fribourg Golden. Like a really heavy cigarette. That's fine if that's your bag. I prefer some nuance I guess.
