The various Virginias provide a lot of tangy dark fruit and tart and tangy citrus, grass, hay, vegetation, earth, wood, plenty of bread, sugar, mild floralness, slight acidity, and a couple pinches of spice. The sweet and tartly sour apple brandy topping moderately sublimates the tobaccos, and has no artificial or chemical notes. The strength is a step past the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is in that center. The taste is a notch past the strength level, and just falls short of the medium threshold. Won’t bite or get harshness, and only sports a very few rough edges. This moist plug easily breaks apart to suit your packing preference. You may want to give it a light dry time. Burns cool, clean, and slow with a very consistent, deeply rich, fermented sweet and mildly tartly sour flavor that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and require some relights. It’s an all day smoke for the veteran aro smoker, and repeatable for the less experienced. This is a limited edition of 4,400 tins. Three and a half stars out of four.
