The various fermented Virginias offer some tart citrus and grass, wood and earth, bread, a little tangy dark fruit, light sugar, spice, sourness and floralness. The double pressing eliminates nearly all potential sharpness and rough edges. The strength is in the center of mild to medium. The taste is a step past that center. The nic-hit is a couple of slots past the mild mark. It won’t bite or get harsh. This crumble kake easily breaks apart and doesn’t need much, if any dry time. Burns cool and clean at a slow rate with a very consistent, fairly smooth, mildly sweet, slight savory flavor that extends to the short lived, pleasant after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and does require a lot of relights. Has a pleasant room note. A fairly easy going all day smoke. Three stars.

Cobblestone - Virginia Plug.

The tin holds a single, quite dark, piece of kake. There's a naturally sweet aroma, some hay, but nothing heavy. The tobacco breaks and crumbles easily, it isn't too moist once prepared (for me!)

The smoke? At first light the initial flavour was one of rich fruit. Pleasantly sweet, but not ''sticky''. After the initial few puffs I noticed a slightly savoury, almost nutty flavour behind it which brings a nice depth of character, without being too complex. The burn from it's good; slow and cool, very consistent requiring little maintenance. It hasn't got a bite in it, either!

Nicotine: quite mild. Rom-note: nice.

Virginia Plug? A smashing blend for a hot day; IMO! Highly recommended:

Four stars.
