Best Virginia tobacco, smooth burns at the right rate, very nice, even for the people around.
This is very nice if you don't mind a slight top coating (which MacBaren always seems to do). I got used to their practice of doing that because I enjoy their Navy Flake, and this is very similar in character. It's not very woody, like a lot of straight Virginias are, but if you take it for what it is, it's very good.
Oddly, it enjoys being packed fairly tightly (just like it is in the tin, they say), but smoked slow and with a 9mm filter, or it goes sour, but still doesn't bite.
An excellent tobacco for the chain puffer (NO lung ingestion though), and as stated, it is indeed a mild and sweet smoke.
It is indeed my favorite tobacco.
Spicy and peppery notes. Bold flavor. Can be bitey if you're a heavy puffer. Good smoke for working in the garage or grilling on the bar-b. Not a lite, relaxing smoke.
