I'm really not impressed.

My first thought - It's a cross between a whiny, perpetually offended millennial with less testosterone than a 90 year old and Treason May. Or in other words it's so restrained in both the flavor and strength of the original it totally lacks a backbone.

Cut - Longish Ribbon.

Flavor - The Virginia doesn't really come though, the plum casing is muted 90% of the time. Only appearing every so often and you have to work for it. And worst of all, the strength or almost complete lack there of.

A bowl of Royal Yacht before breakfast with the morning coffee, it wouldn't sucker punch you but at least you know it's there. This stuff is offensively mild in every bloody respect.

As a replacement to the beloved Royal Yacht it fails quite miserably.

As a standalone baccy without any references to Dunhill it's just mediocre.

Touted as a replacement for Dunhill Royal Yacht with a similar plummy tin note laid over otherwise unadorned high quality Virginias.

A cool, strong voluminous smoke. Perhaps not quite as high in Vitamin N as the original, perhaps not quite the depth of flavour of the original (but then I am comparing brand new vs an aged tin).

Regardless, a top notch straight Virginia in its own right.

Is it really Royal Yacht? No, but it's a very good Virginia blend in its own right.
