Thus far, I have basically ignored all the Timm blends, though they are manufactured locally (defining "locally" as "less than 60 mi. away from where I live"). I finally got my thing together to order a pouch of this blend a couple of weeks ago when I was low on flakes.

The pouch aroma is fresh, nutty and sweet, the flake slices are full-sized (i.e. just right to fold, twist, drop into a tall bowl) and of average cut, but rather brittle - I'd say no glue applied. The leaf ranges from bright golden to medium brown. Lighting is pretty easy for a flake, and it'll burn cool and slow.

The taste is very much sweet VA, with a hint of bubbliness in there (maybe somebody lost a few grams of Perique when my batch was packaged...?), the burleyesque nuts/chocolate note from the pouch aroma is not found in the taste and I'd say there is, if any, very little Burley in there. Light notes of citrus (orange-ish) and nice, warm sweetness.

Good VA flake, not a taste explosion but a very good smoke that may well find its way into my rotation as my standard flake (a position currently held by MacBaren's Navy Flake) if the quality persists throughout the next pouches.

Update 2011-03-24: the quality persists. Ordering a bulk package.

Update 2011-06-22: The bulk package contains incredibly long and wide slices; still a beauty; up-rating to 4 stars.

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.

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.

=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.

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.

Pipe Used: Stanwell ,Peterson and etc.
