Bright Virginias are slowly toasted to a dark hue and pressed into a plug. The result is a natural sweetness of caramelized sugar and dark fruit coming together for a mellow yet rich mixture. Notes of bread and light citrus mingle with the forward sweetness throughout making for a consistent, deep, and flavorful smoking experience.

The bright Virginias provide a lot of tart and tangy citrus, bread/toast, vegetative grass, some sugar, hay, wood, floralness, sour lemon, earth, mild spice, light darker fruit and a touch of tingly acidity and syrup. The strength and nic-hit are medium. The taste level starts out as medium, but gets a step stronger by the half way point. Has a mild roughness. This crumble plug easily breaks apart, and is mildly moist. As per my usual custom, I did not dry it for this review. Deeply rich, it burns cool, clean and a tad slow with a very consistent, fruity, sugary, mildly floral, spicy, zesty flavor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. The room note is pleasant, too. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a couple more than an average number of relights. Not quite an all day smoke, but it is repeatable. Should age well. Three and a half stars out of four.

Tin note is vegetative, grassy, some citrus. Crumbles out into somewhat large flakes.

A dark berry sweetness. Bready, tangy dried fruit, with that bright grass and citrus coming through. Flavors are rich but mellow in a caramelized sort of way. Asks for a few relights but it’s a nice slow burn. Gives wonderful flavors to sift through. Consistent, uncomplex. I’m very much looking forward to keeping some of this around and maybe even experimenting with some condiments.

Tin note of rasin bread, grass and dark fruit. The Stoved VA plug over 1/2 thick crumbles easily but needs cutting and some rubbing out. Tobacco is soft and dry, burns slow and required relights. The strength is medium, Nic is mild-med and no flavoring detected. Taste is med-strong and mostly consistent throughout. Taste of bread, lemon zest, and sweet grass. Room note is pleasant and after taste is good.

Came very wet in the tin, very hard to keep lit. Just tastes like a low grade cutter leaf and heavily topped almost like an aromatic.

This stuff tasted like straight black cavendish to me. I find black Cavs boring as a dominant note so this went into my “tins I don’t care about” ammo can until I can find someone who will enjoy it more.

Not saying it’s a bad tobacco but not at all what I’d expect from a straight va. Maybe it’s a stoved VA? If so I would have appreciated a heads up. I am newer to pipe smoking at this point (2 years of consistent smoking as a employed tobacconist: expertise more towards cigars) so maybe this is a type of straight VA I’ve just not come across before… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
