A rich, fragrant red cake virginia tobacco. Ribbon cut, and deeply satisfying. A great Virginia to use as a base in your own blends!

I Smoked this in briar and meerschaum. I Love the taste of this fine and satisfying red Virginia. However, although I allowed this to set out for a couple of hours, I still ended up with bit of a sticky tobacco in my bowl. I think this would be a great smoke if it weren't for the type of or amount of humectant being used.

The red Virginia has a mildly tangy dark fruit with a little earth and a pinch of spice. Has a mild nic-hit. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns a bit slow and wet with a very consistent flavor. Leaves moisture and a little dottle in the bowl, and needs some relights. Has an okay after taste. Can be an all day smoke or a mixer. Compared to other straight red Virginias on the market, this just doesn't seem to stack up as well, and I can't really figure out why that is. It gets two stars instead of three because of the dottle.

Blue Ridge is a middle of the road Red Virginia that has a little more palate filling flavor than McClelland's 5100 but the flavor it fills the palate with is not as rich and sweet as the latter. Probably a good tobacco to mellow out a strong Latakia mix with, but it sure needs some friends to help it please the smoker, IMO.
