Dark Virginia focuses on Dark Virginias with a dash of Golden Virginias; promises some lemony notes with more natural sweetness. The dominance of the Dark Virginias brings the body and the flavor to the medium level.


Now, I understand that the Golden Virginias should bring some lemon and grassy notes, but I confess that I only tasted them on the first light. My bowl developed quickly into a natural sweetness (reminds me of a light honey), and it pretty much stayed consistent for the rest of the bowl. There's a definite nic-hit with this one if you aren't careful. I would put this as a lunch smoke - good to take a minute but don't go overboard.

I Didn't Think it Possible...
...with as much as I have been enjoying Astlleys 109 blend, I didn't think it was possible to find a better flake, but here it is. Unlike 109, the 44 is a full unbroken flake that fold and stuffs easily, and the taste is not as subtle as the 109. It still has all of the same wonderful aromas and flavors as the 109 pure Virginia, but it is like someone turned up the volume. If you liked the 109, this is a must try blend.
