HV is medium. To a piper who favors GH Dark Flake or FVF, HV would seem light. To a puffer of MacBaren VA Flake or Dunhill Flake, HV would taste heavy, or at least heavier. It's not unlike some CCs or the 5100 in a very broad sense, but it has a different flavor profile. If you don't like it, you can always trade it.
