Cut: Broken Flake
Pre-light smell: earthy, rasiany. different from other va/pers.
Type of pipe: My Peterson System pipe for my Va/pers
Taste: Bold, robust flavor. Smooth and creamy, with some tangy and spicy notes. Occasionally sweet and smokey. Sounds more like I am reviewing a cigar than pipe tobacco and as full as this tobacco is, a cigar would be a pretty close comparison.
Bite: I didn’t get any, but again, as with all Va’s I caution you to smoke slow, anyways.
Aftertaste: dry, slightly sweet taste.
Room note: Pleasant to tolerable.
Nicotine: Didn’t hit me, yet. It might pack a punch, I haven’t noticed as of yet.
Conclusion: Fantastic tobacco which would be enjoyed by anyone who likes va/pers, or a full smoke. as a note, this contains a very small amount of Latakia to it, but it isn’t dominating like in an English blend. It is barley noticeable. Well worth looking into.
5 outta 5 star
