Mild None Detected Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The Virginias have some grass and hay, a little toasty earthiness, a touch of citrus and some acidity and sugar. There’s a light spiciness from the lemon Virginia that can tingle your tongue. The strength is mild and the taste is just past that level. The nic-hit is just past being mild. It needs a light hydration to slow the burn rate and bring out the flavors. Can bite a fast puffer, and can get harsh at times, providing a mild cigarette note if not smoked slowly. Requires few relights, and leaves virtually no moisture in the bowl. The after taste is commonplace.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Very Mild Tolerable

Presumably this is intended as a dual use tobacco. It is a bone dry shag of mid to yellow Virginias and looks identical to the tobacco one finds in cigarettes smoked throughout the Commonwealth.

As a pipe tobacco it has very little aroma, is thin, one dimensional and can be harsh at times. It has a pleasant sweetness and a lemon zestiness.

Might be a worthwhile addition for a pipester who wants a neutral, no fuss, nicotine fix in their bowl.

Pipe Used: Lepeltier, Missouri Pride

This was a free sample from smokingpipes.

Sweet with a touch of hay and grass. Didn't get any citrus notes or for that matter any other notes at all. Not terribly flavorful but it'll do if there's not anything else available.

Mild to medium in body. Mild in flavor. Burns well. Came dry as a bone.

Pipe Used: MM Country Gentleman, Diplomat Apple, Mark Twain

Age When Smoked: fresh bulk
