This is a smooth, somewhat less than sharp Va. with a dark sweetness. There is little if any citrus flavor although it does have a low-level tartness that keeps the salivary glands perked-up throughout the smoke. It plays well against the hops-like g... Read Morerassiness of the sweet Va. As the bowl progresses a brut prune flavor grows in prominence. Eventually the flavor takes on a woody character – sort of an interesting development since the initial flavors seem to hold their own while the slow-to-develop prune and woody flavors add their voices to the chorus.

Just like Old Gowrie, I did not like this one to start with so I put it in my cellar for 5+ years transforming it into a solid gold first class smoke. My taste has also matured in that time. I like all 3 blends Old Gowrie. Hal o' The Wynd. Brown Clun... Read Moreee. And at this point I like them all the same they are all great and we as pipe smokers are lucky to have them, I smoke all 3 of them in large thick walled .85 dia. bowls. Long Live RATTRAY'S!!!!!
