I thought I had reviewed this one before. This is a very nice, easy smoking Virginia. Subdued, with not an extreme propensity to bite (obviouslly, if smoked slowly), very delicate and civil.

For a beginner, or someone who wishes a milder change of pace, this one is a good choice.

I am a bit puzzled by this one but I think it deserves 4 stars because of the smooth quality, at least after a couple of years of aging. First of all, this is definetely a flavoured tobacco, and Im surprised by those reviewers who rate it as mild in flavoring. I think this is one is not very far from a danish style (or something between that and an aromatic) even if it is a straight virginia. It's a type of tobacco that could probably make pipesmoking a bit enticing to those around you (if you had to smoke in public and want to go for something less obstrusive). The room note is not exactly like an artificial aromatic, it is more of a genuine tobacco smell together with sweet caramel. The same flavouring also translates into the taste department. Actually, I find this tobacco curious becuase the actual virginias are so mild in taste that I hardly detect any taste at all. It's like a very smooth and neutral taste together with a consistent layer of sweet cake, or caramelish taste, but still a bit subdued. Subdued by what? Nothing really, just a very smooth tobacco that I think is of good quality and gives a pleasent smoking experience. But I would say the virginias are more on the earthy side, I don't detect any bright or grassy notes. The tobacco is a bit sticky, and even after I had opened it and forgot the tobacco in the tin for over a year or so, it had not dried out and was still in need of a few relights while smoking. But I would still say it is fairly easy to smoke, if you pack it right and all that. And it does not bite. So I think this is a good option for someone who do not like artificial aromatics but still wants to have something that smells very nice, and does not burn too hot. The smoke is creamy with a somewhat robust body but smooth nevertheless. The only downside is that it accumulates a bit of an ashy aftertaste in the mouth while smoking, so probably works best with a drink. It seems that the backflip of the wonderful scent is this ashy coating that it builds up in the mouth, that gradually intruses on the smooth side of things, and that can also give a tounge burn if you are not careful. But few tobaccos are perfect, right?

The blend discription above is kinda misleading because this blend is an aromatic flake.once the tin cracks a wonderfull caramel coconut smell comes out.a deeper smell and some vanilla notes also come out.the flakes are curly/waves with perfect cut and moisture.they can be broked or rubbed easy.i prefer rubbing them for a better lighting and fewer relights.while smoking the flavours are very nice and natural.the caramel/coconut topping feels very natural and sweet.virginias are tonned down by the topping but they provide grasses,citruses and some bread notes.i also noticed some black cavendish wich are obvious in the flake and the taste' giving some vanilla notes.generally the flavours are tasty and natural from the beginning till the end.burns slow and medium hot to perfect ash with a lot moisture left at the filter and the end of the bowl.nicotine level is medium and the aftertaste very pleasant.room note is great with some chance of tongue bite if pushed a bit.it can ghost a pipe very easy.an all day smoke.generally if you prefer unflavoured flakes don't bother buying it.if though you like aromatic blends it's worthy!

Sweet mild creamy Virginia, nothing to shout about but nothing to moan about. Has a super fruit cake rich figgy pudding aroma in the tin to greet you. about as exciting as troost to smoke.

I feel this is best smoked a flake at a time and puffed slowly but frequently. Ideal for smokers new to the pipe or in my case returning after a short break. Great quality vg in a Danish style that can be easily smoked without distraction from other tasks.
