Amphora - Virginia 1.75oz
Decent straight virginia at a good price
This is a nice straight virginia. As a broken flake it is easy to load. The pouch note is fruity. It lights pretty well but might need a little drying. It is grassy and bright in flavor. I do not detect much sweetness throughout the bowl. You definitely need to sip this blend as it can bite if hurried. There is a slight nicotine hit. Overall a good straight virginia that would be recommended to beginner or experienced smokers.

A & C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Spicy VaPer
Lots of peppery spice here. Virginia’s are of high quality and mild. A bit moist in the tin and needs some drying out. Easy to rub out. If you like VaPers start here.

Dunhill - My Mixture 965 50g
Beautifully balanced english
Very flavorful all the way to the bottom of the bowl. No tongue bite. Burns readily to a light gray ash. An all day smoke in my opinion. If you haven’t tried it, do so quickly

Lane Limited - Ready Rubbed 1.5oz
Very good sll day burley
Not what I expected. A very pleasing smoke. Easy to light and burns great. Not many relights and does not bite. Faint flavors of cocoa and molasses. An all day smoke that is worth the try.

Newminster - No.400 Superior Navy Flake
Very nice Virginia
This was a good straight virginia. Light grassy notes. It burned slowly and was satisfying all the way to the bottom of the bowl. I just wish it had some perique in it. This could be a regular smoke.

Newminster - No.23 Blackberry Brandy
Good aromatic
Smells great in the bag. Leaves a fine room note. Not goopy. I’m not an aromatic smoker, but this is a fine example.

Newminster - No.17 English Luxus
Not a bad English
This is an average example of an English mixture. Nothing extra special, but tasty. It did improve halfway down the bowl. It burns well and is somewhat satisfying. Worth the try, but not a regular in my routine.
