Among the longest free-flowing blackwater rivers in America, the Edisto is the largest river system completely contained within South Carolina. Framed by ancient oaks draped in Spanish moss and historic tupelo-cypress trees, its gentle, steady current meanders over 250 miles to its mouth at picturesque Edisto Beach, reflecting the easy-going lifestyle of those who call its shores home. Low Country's Edisto pays tribute to this local sanctuary with a relaxing blend of naturally sweet red Virginias, pressed and sliced into delicate flakes for the perfect all-day, everyday pipe tobacco.

This very bready red, mahogany, bright/orange Virginia flake provides plenty of tart and tangy citrus, vegetation, grass, some tangy ripe dark fruit, sugar, moderate earth, wood, and floralness along with touches of sour lemon, honey, and a couple of pinches of spice. The strength, nic-hit and taste levels start out as mild to medium, and by the half way point, they just reach the medium mark. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Barely has a hint of roughness, and is smoother than expected. The thin flake easily breaks apart, and I saw no need to dry it. Burns cool, clean and as slow with a very consistent fruity, sweet, bready flavor that extends to the lightly lingering pleasant after taste. The room note is a step stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl. Requires a few more than an average number of relights. An easy going, comfortable all day smoke. Four stars.

Low Country - Edisto.

This is all I've had in my pipe since yesterday afternoon, it's a lovely blend!

Although badged as a flake, at first the flakes can be identified, it falls more under the title of a broken flake. Just the lightest pinch can extract some tobacco that can be stuffed straight into a bowl. The tin-note isn't anything to scream about, a bit of hay, a subtle sweetness; Virginia! I notice the wetness has been noted, but this tin has an exemplary hydration. So, no drying, I just stuff it in and go!

''Jam on toast''. What I mean is the Virginias are bready, yet fruity. I don't get any sharpness, citrus, fresh grass, but I get a very refined, mature, decadent flavour of the Virginia leaf. My tin has performed well, so far. Cool burning, bite-free, easily lit, independent, necessitating little maintenance.

Nicotine: quite mild. Room-note: nice.

Edisto? Highly recommended:

Four stars.

This is by far the wettest C&D blend I have yet encountered. Not a good or bad thing, just an observation. I like the fact that C&D can be smoked right out of the tin with no dry time, not this one. This one is more Samuel Gawith drowned rat wet and needs about 15 minutes or more of dry time. Age will probably tone this down a bit. Tin note is very muted, some mottled hay with some citrus but very subtle. Once dried, it burns well and has a nice subtly sweet, slightly citrus with nice earthy tones. The Red Virginia is the star but it is blended well with the brights to give a nice all day smoke. Past the half way mark the earthy sweetness over takes the citrus and has a very pleasing aftertaste/finish. Nothing really stands out for me as a straight Virginia, this is a crowded field with lots of good options. This is no better or worse than those that are already in the market. A very good smoke but I will probably stick to the ones I normally go to when want a straight VA simply out of habit. Very nice blend but a "one of many" with nothing notable to make it stand out from others.

This is once again a blend I was pulled into by the chatter. Once again the tin note was good, some dark fruit, little hay, smelled intriguing. Once again the smoke itself started out ok, but then by the midway, the casing had burned off and the low quality leaf showed through. It’s these green young Virginias that are a common theme in all these new C and D blends. Windjammer was a similar experience for me. It’s the same thing EVERY TIME, “tobacco pressed and sliced into delicate flakes”. Same presentation, same young leaf with a different casing. I keep getting rooked in to trying these new releases and I’m let down every time. This will be the last time I buy a tin of these new blends.
