This comes in a 40g pouch, contrary to the description.

On the pouch: "Long lasting sweet burning American style cut plug pipe tobacco. Sweet in the bowl and easy on the tongue." "Clever pipe tobacco is blended for a perfect cool and sweet smoke. The main part of this smoking mixture comes from America, mixed with aromatical selections from other wellknown tobaccocountries."

Very nutty-smelling in the pouch with some distinct VA tang and a big burley and MA body. I got a pouch of this to round out my last order from Synjeco and I've not been able to stop smoking it. It burns cool thanks to the burley component, but has enough flavour and complexity from the VA to even out the mix. Can still bite if provoked. Runs medium to light brown in colour.

This may not be "enough" for a pure-VA smoker, but I like it very much and can recommend it for the price, which is quite cheap.

This is a pouch tobacco, which immediately prejudiced me to classify it as a "newstand" tabak. However, it has a straight-forward tobacco taste and is uncased - meaning I wouldn't hesitate to pick some up if stuck without one of my regular tobaccos.

The burley's make their presence felt, especially if this course-cut tobacco is smoked without being rubbed-out. The more one rubs it out, though, the more it tends to burn your tongue. So you have to pick the spot that's best for you.

Color is predominately mid-brown, with about 10% golden leaf. The moisture level was fine for smoking as soon as the pouch was opened. The tobacco burns to a clean, dry ash.
