Here the "Orange" refers to the color of the Virginia Tobacco used. Orange Virginia ribbon is Bulked and aged at 115 Deg F for weeks in 55 Gallon Drums. During this time natural elements that cause bitterness and harshness are released leaving a mellow, slightly sweet Vrginia which still retains a bit of the "Tangy Sparkle" of our simply Red.

Full disclosure: I had an advisory hand in this blend. Several grades of fermented light to darker orange Virginias produce a wealth of zesty, tingly tart and tangy citrus, sugar, bread, some tangy darker fruit, earth, wood, mild floralness, grass, spice, and light sour lemon with a touch of acidity and a small hint of wine-like vinegar. That last aspect comes from the processing of the tobacco as there is no topping on this product. Has an attractive little sparkle note, too. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste is a tad more potent, but doesn’t quite meet the medium threshold. It won’t bite or get harsh. Has a few minute rough notes. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent flavor. Has a short lived pleasant after taste, and room note. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. An all day smoke that should age exceptionally well. Four stars out of four.
