Gold Rush is a pure Virginia blend made of only the most outstanding Virginia tobaccos. Medium-bodied and smooth, this Ashton mixture burns beautifully and renders a natural aroma accented by traces of lemon and honey.
I bought this at the beginning of my " try every pipe tobacco on the planet " phase, which I am still in if I'm being honest with myself.

I suppose I thought this blend would be boring, but it has a nice flavor. Read Less
This one belongs to the easy smokes - fresh, honey and citrus. It looks nearly like a broken flake because it is much coarser then ribbon usually should be but there is no need of further rubbing. It will burn cool and slow but it will bite you if yo... Read Moreu push really hard. As longer it burns it becomes more tangy and more satisfying. No drying needed. The nic and taste level is laying in the mid. An all all day smoke and perfect with a lemonade or a nice, fresh cocktail. Five stars because it is a really easy, not complex and enjoyable tobacco.

I took a gamble on Ashton's Gold Rush. I have to say, what a lovely tobacco! An honest new favourite. I smoke little rollies instead of out of a pipe, and I found this tobacco absolutely PERFECT. It's light but flavourful. The citrusy lemon is defini... Read Moretely there. Sweet, but not "hay" sweet. Sometimes even comes off as literally having the "essence of a lemon drop" in your mouth. Orlik and Reiner's golden sliced tobaccos are the only comparable products that come close to the Gold Rush. But, Orlik has the perique bite, and really just isn't as pleasant. And I'd say the Reiner is as nice, more full-bodied, and has more of an orange thing going on. Pro-Tip: mix the Gold Rush and Reiner together for something of a Five-Alive effect. It's REALLY nice.

Lights and burns easy to a fine white ash. I think it pairs great with a can of Coca Cola, it literally complements it as if you are tasting the lemon with your drink.

I've been smoking this for a few days to see what I thought of it. It has a nice medium flavor, but no hay/grass of light Virginias. It is more like bread, like some red Virginia but it is mild and withoit Perique it lacks the pepper found in most re... Read Mored VaPer blends. I am a big Orlik fan, but I think I'm going to keep some of this around for a change of pace. It's in the middle as far as Virginias go.
It does burn hot, but doesn't burn your tongue. The aroma is just pleasant pipe smoke while you are smoking it, but it hangs in the room and smells like cigarettes for a long time after you finish it.
Overall worth a try, even if they were out of lemons the day they tinned the one I got. Read Less
