Savinelli's Juno is a delicate amalgam of stoved and unstoved Virginias, the pinnacle of leaves both red and bright.

Notes: Savinelli's Juno presents a base of stoved Red Virginia combined with bright Virginia, which is stoved yet again before adding a dash of fresh, straight red Virginia. The result is a delectably sweet mixture to satisfy the most experienced Virginia lover.

The stoved red Virginia offers some tangy stewed, sugary, fermented ripe dark fruit, earth, wood, plenty of bread, a few blades of grass, light vegetation, a little citrus, and touches of spice and floralness. It takes a small lead. In a support role is the tart and tangy citrusy, bready and mildly toasty, grassy, lightly floral and acidic tart lemony, moderately sugary, bright Virginia. A dash of fermented red Virginia provides a burst of tangy ripe dark fruit, earth, bread, vegetation, and wood along with light vinegar and hint of spice. This red Va. plays a little above its percentage during the experience. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste barely reaches the medium mark. Won’t bite or get harsh, and has few rough notes. The flakes easily break apart, and need no dry time. Well balanced and lightly complex, it burns cool, clean, and a tad slow. It has a very consistent mildly tart and tangy sweet, lightly rugged rich flavor that translates to the pleasant, short lived after taste, and room note. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires a few more than an average number of relights. Three and a half stars out of four.

Juno was a pleasant surprise upon opening the tin. This is a lovely looking flake , not really a plug but rather a pull apart brick . So easy to work with and pack . The tin note is mildly virginia , sort of hay and earth . The smoke is interesting in it's simplicity , sweet notes but not over the hill and in your face . The stoved virginias give of a slight fragrance and a subtle sweetness . You need to wait for the moments of sweetness but when they come the reward for being patient is very sweet . The virginias are a little young and will improve with age. The burn is truly excellent due to the perfect cut. Though not a big flavor bomb I enjoyed it very much . There comes a moment in our day when slight pleasures are appreciated more than the big experience . Sit back on your porch and have a mint iced tea , smoke this slowly . it does have a transportive qualities .
