This Rattray's mixture is a stronger, sharp aged red Virginia blend that will perk you up quickly. Hal O' The Wynd is always ranked near the top for fantastic Virginias to smoke now and save some for the cellar.
VA smoker? It behooves you to try this. This is one of those great and noble tobaccos which just tastes like tobacco with maybe some extra spice to keep it interesting. This could be your all-day, every-day thing. Does it stand out for its complexity... Read More? Nah. But it is strong as far as nicotine goes, and spicy, and boy does it burn like a champ. But dry it first, because this stuff comes WET. Read Less
A First Rate Mixture

This is a lovely bright and spicy mixture that offers nuanced back-end notes of sweetness. The Perique is not overstated and marries nicely with the bright Virginia. The broken flake cut provides for easy packing and combustion. It holds moisture wel... Read Morel and I see no need to decant it from the tin once open. A rewarding and satisfying offering that is well worth the invest of both capital and time. Enjoy! Read Less

The cut is beautiful, it's easy to rub down, it retains it's moisture nicely, it burns well... But it's also not very exciting. It just falls flat for me. It's not awful, but the flavour just isn't there!
One of the best

A great blend in it's genre. Right cut, right strength, right flavour. Just a lovely smoke all the way around.
I'd imagine it would age very well. When first opened it has a very distinct fermented aroma of perique. I found letting it rest a couple ... Read Moreof days with the lid off dried it out just a tad and made packing easier.
It's a full blend without being harsh or too strong. Inhales easily and quite pleasant. Room note is nice to inoculant.
Burns quite steady and slowly. Even if you push it a bit I've yet to have it over-heat on me.
Finishes to the very bottom very cleanly with a nice silvery ash and no dottle. I'll keep this one around. Read Less
Touch more Perique

My two go to Rattray blends are Old Gowrie and Hal O' the Wynd with Old Gowrie a slight favorite. Hal O' the Wynd has more perique and a stronger nicotine hit.Both are top Va/Per blends.PS I do not detect any "sauce" at all.
Too much sauce

Everything from this German blender tastes like honey. I prefer less of the casing.
actually 6 stars on a 5 scale for me
