Red virginia tobacco made in old no-nonsense style. Simply good english full strong smoke. It gives you the typical virginia experience and I can understand why some don't like it. It's a smoke it or leave it tobacco, no aroma to make a dissertation about, just hints of citrus, nuts and natural sweetness. It smokes well, easy to maintain lit, great smoke and burns to fine ashes. The aftertaste is very satisfying. I smoke it on balcony and like if the nature wanted to tease me, the weather was windy with sun and rain changing within minutes giving me that English autumn feel, the falling colorful leaves flying around like having the last play before dark clouds and mist bring the cold and announce the winter approach ing. I can imagine many can enjoy this tobacco in peaceful reading the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and slowly puffing the same named tobacco. It's just that kind of tobacco.
