Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
I was looking for a "replacement" for 5100 (as a lot of us have had to do), and I do believe I've found my new daily puff. It has a very good flavor, with many of the old belt attributes ~ especially about half way down the bowl. A mellow, ... Read More
Unadulterated VA Goodness
October 16, 2017
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
Purchased for blending. Like most of the other c&d blending tobaccos this comes at a low moisture level out of the sealed bag, and is ready for blending immediately if desired. No casing or topping means pure red VA flavor and aroma, with deeper... Read More
Woody, Tangy and just a Smidgeon of Sweetness
June 21, 2021
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
This originates from further up the tobacco plant. The three star rating doesn't reflect the quality, which is high, but rather my taste preference. The mouth feel is silky and the PH is good. This is far less sweeter than bright or lemon VA, and is... Read More
Gorgeous

It has depth and body and displays all the Virginia properties you could expect in a tobacco with these characteristics.
One year later

Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
I bought a couple of ounces about a year ago along with a few other tobaccos to experiment with blending. I smoked each one that I bought individually to get an idea of how each variety tasted. I found the Red Virginia to be a bit harsh at first, but... Read More
Quality Red VA

Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
Yes I smoke it straight. And yes it’s great for blending. I make my own VaPers and this stuff is the key.
Wow!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
This stuff is strong. In the spectrum of Virginias, it's in the fuller end of the scale. Bready at first, then the flavors develop into earthy, rich, full, and deep. Will be great added to my milder aromatics, and to any blend that i find too light.... Read More
after 5 years

Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
Jar note of tartly sweet, sugar and spices. Tobacco is mostly a medium brown with a little darker brown mixed in. The short ribbons are a little moist, drying may be preferred. Burns moderate with few relights. The strength is medium and nic is mild ... Read More

Bulk King
February 12, 2022
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
As advertised! Sweet, with honey and buttery notes of hay, straw, bread and malt. There is an edge of spice, citrus and zest in the undertones. It smokes a little hot if too dry but doesn't want to bite. This unassuming bulk blend holds its own again... Read More
Red Virginia heaven
March 29, 2021
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
Yeah I know, it's not Mcclelland 5100, but it's a damn fine smoke. I have a little over 2 lbs of this stuff. Mostly for blending experiments, I pressed 1 lbs, jarred 1 lbs and added my own casing to a small sample. But it's just really good by itself... Read More

Solid red ribbon you have had a hundred times in C&D blends. That said it smokes great on its own its a great mild mindless smoke.
Staple For Blending
August 14, 2023
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
Such a quality tobacco! I enjoy smoking a bowl of this straight, but has become a staple for many of my blending experiments at home. Seems to pair well with a variety of tobaccos, I've enjoyed blending this in with various aromatics and pairs well w... Read More
Red VA goodness
February 10, 2023
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
As with the bright VA, I tried this to see it's blend worthiness and found that it is week worth it on its own. Just nice red Virginia's with that mouldering leaf litter taste. Versus hay and grass of the bright VA. Very nice indeed
a long maturation
November 29, 2021
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
This tobacco for my taste requires a long maturation. I buy it to create my own mixes. In that form, I add it to light Virginia no more than 10-15%. It is much "harder" to smoke than the light Virginia one, although it is higher in strength... Read More

Very nice reds, sweet and hay-y, and a bit stronger than the Sutliff RVR. An excellent blending component.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
The leaf itself deserves a full 5 stars. Rich with the flavors of hay and tangy cider, this is pure, quality Red Virginia, and it doesn’t get any tastier than this so fresh. Smokes smooth, cool, and bite-free on its own, and has a fairly modest kick ... Read More
Fine for Blending
March 24, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
This leaf has your expected dark fruity, tangy/acidic notes expected with a red virginia. I also noticed some vinegar and earthy and a slight spice occasionally. The moisture level came just about perfect and it leaves little moisture at the end of t... Read More
Very tasty

This Virginia is excellent out of the tin, but I just got a 3 year aged tin it tasted very mild and sweet. A great tobacco to blend with.
Poor blend
May 03, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
After mulling on some of the reviews around the traps, I bought some of this. The first bowl was fairly good. Everything after it was terrible. One of the worst tasting blends I've ever had. So I bought some Sutliff 515 RC-1 and did a half and ha... Read More

Poor blend
March 30, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
When I first smoked this I thought it was good. On the second bowl, I thought it was crapola. So I got some Sutliff 515 RC-1 and mixed it half and half. And now I've smoked that, it could use a bit more 515. However, there are way, way better red... Read More
Interesting...

Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon 2oz
I was ready to not like this based on reviews on another site, but I have been very pleased. I think it will age beautifully however it isn't bad at all now. Upon first light there is some cigarette aroma; very good cigarette aroma, but it's there ... Read More
Good Quality Leaf

Product: Cornell & Diehl Red Virginia Ribbon Bulk
The taste profile is more earthy than citrusy, and can pack quite a wallop. The quality is off the charts and can be cellared.
