Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The grassy, tart and tangy citrusy, lightly tart lemony Virginia also has some earth, wood and a hint of tangy dark fruit as the lead component. The mildly spicy, raisiny, plumy, earthy perique is a secondary player with the plum peeking out a tad more than the other aspects of this varietal. The moderately applied, lightly tangy blood red orange topping synergistically works with the tobaccos to create a harmonious, mildly complex experience, and doesn’t sublimate the varietals very much. The strength and taste levels are a step past the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. No chance of bite, harshness or rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent sweet and mildly spicy, rather smooth flavor from start to finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste, and room note. A comfortable all day smoke.

After two weeks delay my order came in. One of my items was out of stock so I opted to wait. They did mail it to me two-day priority which was nice. A pipe club friend of mine PKT on this site introduced me to this Tobacconist from our club meetings. I had never really heard of them. My friend who lived in that area had been doing business with them for decades. I heard that they were having a 20 percent off sale so I ordered some to have something to look forward to as I am stuck at the ole homestead. I chose this one first to try. This blend has a really nice sweet mild (orange) aroma with predominately blonde ribbon with medium dark ribbon interspersed throughout. It is really moist as the ribbons clumped together like a small ball of worms. Nice analogy huh? I loaded it in my Claw Meerschaum and sort of let it dry in the bowl so to speak. It lit up nicely and smokes smooth with a fantastic mild topping that really in my opinion compliments the tobacco and gives it a more natural taste and smoke. This is mild in nicotine and flavoring but will be an excellent summer blend as the days get warmer. Personally, I do not smoke blends seasonally i.e. Latakia in the fall, winter; Virginia spring, summer but if you do then this is a great one to start out the spring.

Mild Mild Mild Pleasant

An easy going Virginia with a touch of Perique and a orange flavoring. Smokes very well with limited complexity and a relatively mild taste. An excellent all day blend with that does what it does very well. John has added a very good blend to an impressive line up.
