Reviewed By Date Rating Strength Flavoring Taste Room Note
Nov 12, 2021 Medium to Strong Medium Medium to Full Pleasant
The bold, vintage bright Virginia shag provides plenty of fermented tart and tangy citrus, grass/hay, bread, sugar, some sour lemon, vegetation, floralness, spice, and light acidity. The very tartly sour lemon grass essence takes a small lead over the rum. In the background is a light strawberry topping. The toppings moderately sublimate the tobacco as they help form a very consistent fruity, sour, floral, mildly acidic flavor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. The strength and nic-hit are a notch past the medium mark. The taste level is a step short of the center of medium to full. Won’t bite or get harsh. It does sport a few rough edges. Mildly complex, it burns slightly warm and very clean at a reasonable pace. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. The room note is pleasant. Not an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
