If you love the outdoors and the sweet, smooth flavor of Virginia tobaccos, you're in luck. Please welcome Cascadia Pipe Co. - Campsite to your rotation. This solid plug is made of a combination of grassy bright and toasty, bready matured red and orange Virginias. The plug form means that it will stay moist longer, even after the tin is opened. By coming in a plug form, you can prepare it any way you prefer - flakes, cube cut, or rubbed-out into ribbons. It's a gentle enough blend to enjoy any time of day and will quickly become a favorite for any fan of flue-cured blends. Give Cascadia Pipe Co. - Campsite a try. You won't be disappointed.

Summary: another $15 clone of what you can get for $10 in better quality.

STG figured out that they could take their ordinary blending leaf, trick it out by pressing it into a plug, and sell it for seven times what they could otherwise achieve. "Campsite" falls short of the full-press plugs from Mac Baren and Gawith Hoggarth, but does better than the loose sloppy plugs from G.L. Pease and the odious "kake" from Sutliff. I cut plugs into thin shavings, and in that form, "Campsite" lights quickly and settles into a nice easy place. You still get the acidity of the bright Virginias, unlike with a nice UK plug, and the flavor is thin, since the leaf is relatively young. The mixture of orange, red, brown, and bright Virginias does well but falls short of C&D "Virginia Flake," which is also an acidfest but has a more naturally balanced flavor than "Campsite." I see no reason to reach for this one again, especially at luxury prices, but it is not a terrible experience especially once I dump in enough dark fired Kentucky Burley to mute the raging sugar fire and vinegar blast of the bright Virginias.

The bright Virginia provides plenty of tart and tangy citrus, grass/hay, toast, vegetation, a fair amount of floralness, light sugar and sour lemon, and a pinch or two of spice as well as a very small acidic note. It’s the lead component. In a small support role is the tart and tangy citrusy, grassy, bready, vegetative, lightly woody, earthy, sugary orange Virginia. The red Virginia offers some fermented tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, light sugar, floralness, and a minute essence of vinegar. It’s barely a step above the condiment level. I notice a very light fruity casing that reminds me of apricot. The strength and nic-hit are a slot short of the medium mark. The taste is medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, but it does sport a few small rough edges. The plug is mildly moist, and not hard to cut. It burns cool, clean and a little slow with a very consistent fruity, mildly sour, floral flavor that extends to the short lived, pleasant after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl. Requires a few more than an average number of relights. The room note is a slot stronger than the after taste. An all day smoke. Three stars.
