You get what you pay for. This is very cheap, even in the UK, and there's no point complaining that it's junk. Of course it is! It's mostly sheet tobacco I suspect, really intended to be a rolling tobacco but cut a little coarser to avoid the UK excise on cigarette tobacco. It certainly isn't "premium quality", but if you want something to smoke for the sake of a smoke, Blue Ridge is all right. It tastes quite pleasant (no artificial flavours that I can detect) and it doesn't bite your tongue off. That's about all you can say. Not for the connoisseur, certainly, but somewhat recommended for the all-day smoker who doesn't want to sit and enjoy the nuances of a fine tobacco. Its great virtue is the price. If you're a little hard up, you could do a lot worse than this.

Smoke it slowly and don't let it dry out.

Well, in Italy this new Blue Ridge is sold as RYO, in spite of the fact that 1) it's cut is very much broader than any other, and 2) it's sold in 50grms pouch instead of the usual 40's.

During the past summer I have smoked three or four pouches, and frankly it's nothing to shout miracle, but nothing to throw away as well.

Blue Ridge is a (very) cheap mild virginia blend having no great ambitions nor great flaws. Of course I would never spend my lifetime smoking this alone, nor compare it with the astounding complexity of a FVF (... at three times the price of BR). But I'm of those who also appreciate the plain and uncomplicate smoke of say a Gold Block, and I think BR belongs to that philosophy of smoke.

To cut it short, BR works good as change of pace for a day of absent-minded mild smoke, and much more as a diluting agent for other strong tobaccos. Try it 50/50 with a Semois, if you feel it too strong for the morning...

BTW: I gave a sample to a friend smoker of RYO, he didn't report any enthusiastic opinion, "too full & aromatic" he said.
