Sutliff - 515 RC-1
I didn't know what to expect when I picked up a bag of this tobacco a few weeks back, being that I normally enjoy smoking Englishes, Balkans, and English aromatics. But I thought branching out and trying a straight matured red Virginia might be a good experiment for my palate. Well, let me just say that I'm glad I did. Here in this tobacco I am tasting one of the things I loved most about all the best Englishes I know and love (including McClelland's). This is sweet,but not cloying, tangy but not sour, and full-flavored but not harsh. And for the price, I think it'll be wise for me to pick up a full pound at some point and put as much age on it as possible. I think that would be an even better experiment.
