A straight-Virginia offering from Samuel
Gawith, Golden Glow relies on Golden Virginias from around the world. They all
have one thing in common though: a flue curing, and this process highlights the
natural sweetness of the Virginias. Rated as a mild + to medium body wise, yet
the flavor stretches to the medium level.
I would recommend letting this dry a
bit before packing it. I found the Golden Virginias a bit temperamental out of
the tin. Still, the broken flake was easy to pack, and the flavor of deep
citrus [think cherry or plum] came immediately to the foreground. All the way
to the bottom, the flavor profile remained consistent and enjoyable. If you’re
looking for an all-day Golden Virginia, certainly give this one a try.
