This blend is slightly younger than some flake tobaccos, allowing for a delicate, sweet flavor and light body. This is an ideal introduction for those unfamiliar with Virginia tobaccos, or a welcomed change of pace for the experienced smoker.
"Younger" is a good word for this blend. It has a grassy taste, with a hint of fresh vegetal sharpness (best way I can describe it). It's a very different smoke than a dark, full VA flake tobacco. I don't find it that sweet.
It's good, but different than other straight VA's I have smoked. It really benefited from a year of aging in a glass jar. That mellowed it it some.
I think it's worth a try, but would recommend sampling it first to see if you like it. I like trying different things all the time.
