37 years with the pipe,oriental oriented and very sensitive to virginia biting.Last point could make me a little fanatical on reviews involving not really matured high quality Va.I preserve a very short range of very fine pipes and I don´t like to spoil them.Beside that I really hate any kind of so called aromatics and also but not in the same degree Burleys.I did enjoy Balkan Sobranie and State Express but honestly think that we live today the golden age of pipe tobacco,sadly golden prices too.
