An aro that smoked like a non aro
May 17, 2018
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
This blend smoked well for me. It had that body that I crave in a Virginia. The bourbon and vanilla makes it a smooth finish. Thi s has been moved into my rotation and smoked in my Bing's favorite.
All DFK
December 12, 2017
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
I got a subtle tin note of bourbon, but no vanilla. Upon lighting I got no aromatic notes, mostly just the DFK. The room note is that of a cigar. The tobacco in this blend is good. I just feel completely mislead with this one.

Tin date 10-1-2015. I reviewed this blend before an figured that I would give it some age to see if it improved. Well it did not, in fact its worse than when originally opened. Bitter, sour, acrid and plain old nasty, unfortunately I have two more... Read More
There´s something for everyone!!
November 28, 2016
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
This is a great tobacco. For me, this is not an aromatic in the typical way we know it. It´s refined, different, sophisticated. It has some vanilla undertones but is spicy at the same time; smokey at times but also sweet. This blend offers something ... Read More
Subtle Vanilla Notes
November 22, 2016
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
I was expecting a bit more from this tobacco. Albeit, the description states it has a "subtle vanilla topping." The virginia's provide a mellow smoke but I have found any tobacco that has too much VA in it can drive my wife crazy, it ends u... Read More
Not an aromatic
September 13, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
I am not an aromatic smoker and probably never will be. This poses a problem for me as my girlfriend hates the smell of all of the tobaccos I smoke but loves the smell of every aromatic my father smokes. I bought this with the hope of finding a tobac... Read More
Love This Blend
July 03, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
Just tried this for the first time. I love this blend. The added burboun/vanilla flavor is there but takes a back seat to the virginias. A great transition into the VA blends for a new pipe smoker. Flavor stayed the same though out the bowl. A g... Read More

Not for me

Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
I wanted to like this tobacco more than I actually liked it. Maybe it's my pallet, maybe not. After about five bowls I knew I wouldn't finish the tin. To each their own.
Not bad....
March 23, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
Tastes like a light bulk style aromatic to me. It's not bad but it's nothing great either. A bit on the mild side, kind of leaves you hanging. The quality of the tobacco is no big deal either, it seems rather standard. Smells like a cheap bourbon fl... Read More
Ok VA but great as part of a blend
February 02, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 8oz
This is a Virginia-first blend. As such, it should be smoked the way you would any other VA blend (i.e. slow sips from your pipe). The fresh-baked bread and grass flavors are there. Having said that, there are much better VA blends available. Also if... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
I never got into the Pease train. As a primarily english smoker, I had my share of Maltese Falcons, Gaslights and Quiet Nights. They were fine but never really spoke to me. My impression was that Pease was simply an overhyped blender. As I was loo... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
This is an aromatic in a different sense. As the description states, it's for virginia lovers who want something with a bit of sweet flavor. It is as described and it is not a heavy aromatic. I liked it, very natural tasting but a faint sweetness of ... Read More
didn't grab me
November 10, 2017
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
Aromatics just aren't my cup of tea. Borkum Riff original and Lane BCA are the 2 aromatics I smoke on a regular basis. Most just give me a tongue burn, including Virginia cream, although the taste is ok

This was the first blend I ever smoked, and continues to be a blend I come back to. Great taste and aroma
Mild but nice flavor

Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
This is a mild but flavorful. I find that if you pack your pipe with the black chunks you will get the bourbon flavor .If you pack it with mostly the ribbon tobacco you get a vanilla flavor.Neither are over bering. It burn very cool and I love it in ... Read More

Quick and dirty.... I like this blend - not a hot burner, and easy on the palette. However, there *appears* to be a bit of sample variance. With the first 2oz tin that I received, the Virginia flavor was present along with bourbon but the vanilla ... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
I've been a fan of Pease blends for as long as I can remember. Working in the cigar/tobacco industry has introduced me to many people that shun GLP tobacco. I think it's more jealousy than anything. That said, I cracked open a tin of VC last night. I... Read More

I ordered it once, more to try in my Cobbits, and was blown away by the flavor! Slight vanilla taste, peppery notes, with slight licorice taste, probably from the perique in it, but spicier than I remember. Smokes very spicy in the Shire Cobbit, of ... Read More

May 08, 2016
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
My first big disappointment from Greg Pease. I usually love a mixture with these components, and I gravitate toward bourbon-vanilla aromatics, so I thought this would be the one for me. HOWEVER ... although this one smells great when the tin is fir... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
I didn't like this blend at first. I found it bitty out of the tin, and I didn't pick up any of the "Cream Soda" taste the reviews said it would have. I set the tin on my shelf and forgot about it for about 3 months. Today I decided to give... Read More
Bad tin maybe?
January 05, 2016
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
Did not detect any aromatic qualities upon opening tin, smelled like rich Virginia tobacco. My tin had an overpowering harsh pepper note on the retro-hale akin to the same feeling you get when you eat too much wasabi. I'm going to let it chill out a... Read More

Since my palate got tired and burned out on aros, I don't/can't taste any flavoring in this except subtle hints of vanilla now and then, but I could taste the spicy notes from the virginias and Perique, and that made it worth while. The tin note was ... Read More

October 20, 2015
Product: G. L. Pease The Virginia Cream 2oz
Taste is a subjective thing. So often what one person tastes may be completely missed by another. The Virginia Cream is a perfect example, which I feel has led to some confusion. This tastes to me like a good Virginia ribbon cut blend with a light ... Read More

This is a rare treat for tobacco lovers. It's not the first natural aromatic tobacco that prioritizes the taste of the leaf over the topping, but it's the only one I can think of that you can get without searching for a small boutique blender. This... Read More
