- Room Note:
Quality of tobacco cut was not up to par, and the moisture content was low approaching dry and crumbly.
A decent everyday tobacco. Had more of a bite than I was looking for but found it still enjoyable. Good for when I'm tinkering in the garage.
I really enjoy this tobacco. It is definitely my favorite Va/Per blend. If you are a new pipe smoker it may take you a few bowls to really “get” it. At first try it may seem a little simple but there’s actually a lot going on there. It’s in my top five for sure.
A solid VaPer in an interesting coin shape, burns slowly. Packs well. A working man or enlisted man of a smoke (a good thing).
Absolutely delightful Va/Per mix, great coin cut for humidity. Aftertaste I find very subtly reminiscent of banana. A favorite!
Very smooth and medium strength. Very nice all around smoke that has become my new favorite.
Absolutely delicious. If you like Va/Pers then you need this. Quality product.
High ratings for a reason. A staple Virginia/Perique tobacco. Very satisfying and always consistent from tin to tin. I can’t imagine not having this in my rotation. Love this tobacco
