Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild Unnoticeable

A really good flake this one, especially for those on a budget.

7 & and a bit euros buys you a nicely presented pouch, containing mid brown flake in a sort of mass. Exceptionally sweet and tasty pouch fragrance.

It's a little on the wet side but can be smoked straight from the pouch, although I found I needed several relights. Despite this, this blend is neither sour nor bitey when you return to it. Doesn't choke out the room and can be smoked in any pipe.

An easy, all-day, simple flake at a price that puts English tobacconists to shame. I shall have this in stock at all times. Fills in nicely for the excellent Capstan flake.

Pipe Used: All large briars

Age When Smoked: New

Purchased From: DanPipe, Germany.

=UPDATE 10/2015=

Meanwhile my promising flirt with this tobacco has grown into a serious love affair. I just caught myself ordering a 200g bag for the third time since June. So I somehow managed to cremate, two small pouches included, a whole pound (metric, 500g) of that stuff in virtually no time. Although I don't have the feeling that I smoke it exclusively, it's by far the number one in my rotation. TNNG is uncomplicated, easy to like and totally reliable. The simple pleasure of a not-too-sweet and not-too-spicy tobacco that works hassle-free with every pipe I own.

=original review=

Timm's "No Name Gold" is a very bright VA that's only loosely pressed. It's sold mainly in 200g packages, cheap as dirt (50g pouches are also available). These foil bags by DTM are the closest thing to "true" bulk tobacco available here in Germany.

A gorgeous bale of uncut flake awaits the one who opens one of these bags. The smell of the unlit tobacco is neutral, bright and slightly sweet-ish, dry, almost a bit dusty. I tried it once, some time ago, and found it boring, but a friend of mine keeps mentioning it in my German facebook group, so I've decided to give it another try.

Not bad, really not bad, tends to smoke a bit hot, but leaves your tongue unmolested and doesn't taste off once it has cooled down again. Very sweet, I believe that there's a neutral sweetener added (which is okay for me). Sour notes are lacking completely, instead it's a bit rough around the edges, almost somewhat burley-eske, but I don't believe that there's actually burley in the blend. After the first 1/4 it develops a slight, but strangely fascinating spiciness that compliments the VA-sweetness very well. Imagine caramel toffees with a grain of sea salt.

A nice summer smoke for me that fills the gap Orlik's Golden Sliced left since I grew tired of the casing.

The tin note is pure Virginia. The flakes are cut to size and look like dried figs and smell that way, too. I've bought the bulk package - quite neatly presented in two rows of nicely sized flakes. The tobacco has a leathery touch to it.

After allowing it some time to breathe I just folded one half flake, plugged it into a flake pipe and enjoyed it to the last crumble. It needed some effort to light but after that required neither much tamping nor re-lighting.

I've experimented with drying times, rubbing more or less, different pipes and it all gives good and comparable results. Longer drying diminishes the taste only somewhat. I've found that fold-and-stuff and a flake pipe produces the most taste.  Conical bowls work well, too.

The taste is medium to full, sweet, as Virginia tastes: figs, plums and citrus. Not harsh in the least.

The room is tolerable to pleasant.

Highly recommended, attractively priced.

Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The Virginias provide a fair amount of tangy sweet citrus, sugar, bread, grass, mild earth, wood, honey, very mild tangy darker fruit, vegetation, spice and a touch of acidity. They are the lead components. The perique offers a mild amount of plums, spice, earth, wood, and a hint of figs as a condiment. The very sweet citrus topping mildly tones down the tobaccos. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of steps past the mild mark. The taste is notch stronger. No chance of bite or harshness, and barely has any rough edges. The flakes easily break apart, and are mildly moist. Burns clean, a tad warm and slow with a very consistent sugary, fruity, mildly floral, spiciness that extends to the sort lived, pleasant after taste, and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An all day smoke.

WOW I bought this tobacco just because i saw some comments here and by looking at package and No Name brand prejudged is as a low to normal quality tobacco. But wonderfully this tobacco is Awesome! I bought Burley Virginia tobacco from many famous blenders but this tobacco is better than many of those . I believe my particular pouch is fresh but still very good , just imagine how perfect it can be after proper aging. -Virginia tobaccos in this blend are mild citrusy and a bit tangy -Beurley tobaccos have high quality In general this is a mild blend with no addition flavoring which i really like.

I got 10g free sample of this tobacco from my tobacconist. This is probably that kind of tobacco I'd never try to buy, but man, I was so lucky I had a chance to try it.

Right after opening the packaging, I was welcomed by very sweet and wonderfully fragrant smell.

My sample consisted of very broken pieces of flakes, with nice humidity, no need to dry. It took quite some effort to lit but that's likely because of my poor packing technique. It burns slowly, not too hot and the taste is absolutely heavenly. Very sweet, with light citrus notes, no bite at all (I use 9mm charcoal filter).

If you like sweet pure virginias, this is definitely something to try.
