    TotM Revisited

    I'm actually in VA (laughing) so I'll try to get my hands on a VA and do my own review to post. (Ehm... Unless others in VA want to get together and do our own VA meet&greet and compare VA's in VA ASAP..Lol. What? Just putting it out there.

    Ok sooo... If your new to pipe smoking like me and can't recall every detail you read about the different types out there here is a VA cheat sheet if you will:
    Virginia: -red / black / lemon / orange / orange-red – Virginia is by far the most popular tobacco type used in pipe tobacco today. About 60% of the American tobacco crop is Virginia. Virginia is the mildest of all blending tobaccos and has the highest level of natural dextrose (sugar), which basicly gives it a light sweet taste. Virginia is used in virtually all blends, is a good burner and aids in lighting.

    The mildest of all blending tobaccos, it has the highest natural sugar content. Used in virtually all blends as it is a good burner and aids in lighting. It imparts a light sweet taste when used in moderation

    Pure Virginia tobacco is best known from flake types. Dunhill’s Light Flake is a very good example. Medium in strength and rather sweet in taste. Several blends by Rattray comes into mind. Marlin Flake being a rather heavy member of the family, but still very sweet. The Danish manufacturer A&C Petersen has the Blue Caledonian. Mild to medium in strength, and a nice pure taste of Virginia tobacco.
