I find this to be an excellent, smooth straight VA tobacco. For sometime now, it has become my first after breakfast smoke on weekends. I'm not quite sure why it hasn't been discovered by others. Certainly not filled with complexities, but a delightf... Read Moreul pure VA smoke. I hope that others will consider giving it a try. Read Less
First, thanks to Dan L. for his review of Castello Collection which directly influenced my purchase. Second, as you'd expect, this review is based solely on that one tin and not a history of having familiarized myself with this tobacco, so keep that ... Read Morein mind. This is a great pure Virginia tobacco. Probably by coincidence, I found myself having this in the mornings too. It paired well with black coffee and a rising Autumn sun. It's a firm broken flake with a good moisture level that took the flame better than expected (didn't need drying after all). Being a blend of Virginias, you get all the best; hay, bread, tang, some slightly sour notes (but in a good way), plus tea-like qualities... just a pure taste of Virginia in all it's marvelous ways. I can only assume this would become a 5 star review if I aged a tin, which I plan to do. But for my first experience, I can say this is a beautiful tasting tobacco from a freshly opened tin. I especially liked the fact that I could detect absolutely no added sugars or sweeteners. Some may find that makes this a harsher smoke, but I found it a case of less-is-more that benefits the true taste immensely. I too am surprised Castello Collection isn't talked about more often. I'm sure I will. Enjoy. Read Less

Im going to stock up on some more tins of this because it is shining with a little age so far. I recommend this blend if you dig that straight VA flavor and have patients to let it rest for a bit.
