This is a sweet and tasty virginia mixture. Ive read about high nic levels but havent had a problem with that. The ribbon cut from this company always burns perfectly. This is a very nice and high quality tobacco. If you like sweet virginias you'll d... Read Moreig this. Read Less
One of the best Burley/Virgina's! Right up there with Granger. Very mild, and flavorful. Chocolate, nutty flavors.Right from the start of the bowl to the end. Highly recommended if you are a Burley/Virginia fan.
This blend definitely benefits from a more focused and contemplative smoke. It requires attention and careful and measured puffing to enjoy the complexity of the various components, but the time spent is worth the effort. I do understand the labeling... Read More and the descriptors used so far - mild, middle-of-the-road, etc - but these labels and descriptors belie its interesting complexity. As an earlier reviewer commented, the various components are so well blended that no particular elements stands out. The hint of Orientals are in the foreground early in the puff, but moves a bit to the background halfway through the bowl as the Virginias and Perique move from the background. I noted them there from the first but only in the aftertaste. The Orientals return to the foreground near the bottom of the bowl, and - with a finish of clean, white ash - I am left eager to return the next day over my afternoon cup of coffee (light cream) or Earl Grey. Highly recommended. Read Less
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this tobacco with the description being about the deep woods, of which I have spent much time hiking, hunting, and camping. Truth be told, the deep woods would not be how I described it. My first bowl was a delight w... Read Moreith no tongue bite and perfectly dried tobacco in a hardy cut. My London briar felt cool the whole time and the scent played with me for a few moments. The smell and taste of apricots was present at first. I’m honestly not sure if that was my imagination or if it is truly meant to be there. A few moments later apple over took my scenes and a hint of cinnamon followed up the flavor. This wasn’t the high sugar content cider one buys at the store these days with half of your teeth rotted away before your glass is empty. No, this was the cider I remembered as a kid running through the pumpkin patch in fall and quenching my thirst with fresh pressed warm cider and a steaming doughnut. The first bowl of Deep Hollow brought back memories of a time I had not thought about in years. The apricot flavor never returned as I finished that bowl and there is a possibility that the beer I enjoyed a few minutes before had played a trick on me, Gonzo’s Burning Sun Redd Ale. While I have to admit that out of all the Frog Morton varieties I bought along with this I have only tried the Cellar that slowly grew on me. Between the two Deep Hollow quickly won me over. An easy smoke, delightful taste, and something I will look forward to smoking in the autumn months. Read Less
Strong tobacco w/ Latakia + Oriental/Turkish sans Perique-I've found a home!May 24, 2017

Edit: The wife finds the room note very appeasing. No trouble ligh... Read Moreting up a bowl straight from the tin, you will smoke it to the bottom with ease. Read Less
Not Strong In The Gawith Lakeland senseMay 23, 2017
but strong when compared to the other Orlik offerings.Flavorfull,and with a detectable but not overpowering sweetness.I am now smoking a newly opened tin that has been sitting around for a few months.Upon opening,I saw three neat,square stacks of ind... Read Moreividual slices,with a section of light colored tobacco in the middle,and two sections of the dark on either side.A pungent aroma accompanied this as I stuck my nose into the tin.It is moist enough to fold,which I did,and rubbed out another one and placed the strands atop and around the folded slice as a sort of kindling.This worked well.You will need a few pipe cleaners to keep the smoke channel walls swabbed down if smoking straight from the tin as I am right now,but still, it's not too sloppy and wet.I recommend this to smokers who want to move into the realm of the Gawith 1792 Flake and Lakeland dark.I give it five stars for it's quality,presentation,and flavor.If cellared for 8-10 years,this should be great.

A very good flake. Good moisture content although a tad drying time is recommended. Tin note was sweet, fruity, leather and hay. Flavor was full and smoky, leather with a touch of sweetness.
Maybe not an all day smoke but good nonetheless.
