A friend of mine from the pipe club gave me a nice sample of this on Sunday where I had one bowl and it was pretty good. Today is January 01, 2020 and I have finished up the rest of the sample that was given to me in a Missouri Pride Corncob throughout the day which was about four more bowls. I enjoyed the sweet hay grass smell of the Virginia. Always makes me wish I could live out in the country. Nice sweet tasting tobacco and the more I smoke Red Virginias the more I seem to like this variety of tobacco. No bite to this one and a real relaxing smoke. My friend and one other member both think that this blend would improve with age and no argument here but still was good right out of the tin. At times when I smoke a blend, I like reading others reviews and sometimes I look for buzz words to see how often they show up in the comments. For example, out of 7 reviews, 3 mentioned that the flavor profile of the blend varied as they smoked different bowls of this, about half. I cannot comment as I would probably need to smoke a whole tin of this and there is also the power of suggestion since others have stated varied tastes throughout different bowls which might make me more prone to notice it than I would have otherwise. I am sure a few years of aging can only make this blend better.

This tobacco is very interesting, the Virginia are more on the darker side with earthy note, coffee, dark cocoa and definite zestiness. It is not sweet but it is definitely oriented towards the nutty, zesty, acidic and perhaps soury note. When opened it is a bit moist but more than anything I found the flakes very juicy and greasy, quite shiny too and this proves the quality of the product. It strongly reminded me to the Crumble Kake from the same brand but with several layers of complexity added. Interestingly, every bowl is different but never unpleasant. Definitely enjoyable and it will be interesting to see how it ages as perhaps it may finally get some of the sweetness that is currently lacking.

2019년도 크리스마스휴일 기념으로다가 만든연초입니다. 일단 기념으로 만들었다하기에 뭐든간에 기대를 품는건 마찬가지입니다 마치 지금은 사라진 맥바렌사의 크리스마스치어스 늬앙스가 물씬풍깁니다 아주깨끗한 순수버지니아의 베이스입니다 어떤다른 연초가 들어가지않은 순수버지니아의 탄생입니다. 기존의 순수버지니아의 맛은 일단 불을 붙였을때 올라오는 구수함과 동시에 뒤따라오는 살짝 달큰함이 엄습합니다 하지만 이녀석은 화이트후추의 산뜻한 매콤함이 기분을 업시킵니다 사실 순수버지니아의 구수함은 화이트후추의 매콤함에 살짝 묻힙니다 크게 달큰함은 뒤쳐집니다 그렇다고 맛이 떨어진다는것은 절대아닙니다 매우 흥미로운 조화라고 할수있습니다 흡입할때마다 상쾌한 매콤함과 옅게 뒤따라오는 단맛이 정말 묘합니다 다른 외국친구들은 양송이스프에 집안대대로 오는 귀중한 후추덩어리를 박박갈아서 넣은 할머님의 맛이다라고 하지만 동양인이 우리입맛에는 크게 공감할수는 없습니다 버지니아의 페어링한 가향된맛이 결코 싸구려틱하지는 않습니다 도시녀인데 4차원적인 도시녀같은 매력이 충분히 있습니다 플레이크를 대충 뜯어놓은 형태이어서인지 더욱더 흥미롭습니다 중간쯤 태우다보니 이제는 꽤 잠잠한 매콤함이 오히려 부드럽기까지 합니다 매우 옅어진 매콤함과 반대로 버지니아의 단맛이 처음과는 상반됩니다 이제는 달큰함이 쭉쭉 올라옵니다 상당히 매력적이고 스틸리프회사의 4차원적인 블렌딩기술이 흡입할때마다 기분이 매우 좋게합니다 그리고 오전이나 그날 처음즐기기에는 다소 혀가 얼얼거릴수있기에 점심이후나 기름진음식 먹고난뒤 즐기기를 추천합니다 늦은 저녁 한볼도 매우 괜찮습니다
