A bit lighter in strength than Full Virginia Flake, but the flavor more than makes up the difference. It's lightly sweet taste comes from the natural sugars found in Virginia leaf. This flake is also well suited for blending with other, stronger tobaccos to round out the flavor and add complexity.

First off, yes this baccy is wet. Give it some dry time (and some age) and it's phenomenal. Tin note is like Welchs white grape juice when fresh.
