Charatan - Virginia Three Year Matured.

The appearance is just like the original, a mixture of different shades of brown. The ribbons are even in size, medium, it doesn't include any twigs. Sniffing the blend implies it has a delicate, fruity, topping. The moisture makes it immediately ready to smoke.

'Sweet Virginia'. That could be the review! But, joking aside, the mild touch of fruit casing works perfectly with the naturally sweet and tangy red Virginia. It's these two flavours which lead in the smoke. Behind these is a slight freshness from the bright Virginia, and a touch of Oriental 'pizazz'. It's a refined, yet quite indulgent, flavour. The burn's steady and reliable, giving a cool smoke. I doubt it would bite even the most forceful puffer!

Nicotine: quite mild. Room-note: nice.

Virginia Three Year Matured? I really like it! Four stars:

Highly recommended.

I've never tried the original blend that this is supposed to be based on, so I can't say anything about any similarity, so I shall simply review it on it's own merits.

When first tried, as a small sample (three pipes worth) I was not overly impressed and considered it bitter and rough. However, after somewhat accidentally buying a 50 gram tin I had no choice but to give it a second chance. What I took for bitter and rough (meaning I smoked it too fast) was in fact a rich, deep, Virginia flavour of exceptional quality.

Well worth my accidental purchase and I will be adding it to me rotation.
