This is another one of those simple yet favorites of mine with Virginia and honey. Tin was aged for 6 months and I am almost out already. The paper in the tin is stained dark brown from the fermenting and still has that almost beer/meade smell still. Even with the honey topping this is sweet but not overly sweet and being a broken flake have rubbed it out and dryed for 1 hour about. Plenty of smoke with the burn and little bite but I am sipping gingerly. The pipe is cool and that is what I like about the 999 shape of Petersons. Great flake pipe. There isnít a great complexity here just simple virginas with some sweetness to it. I would say this is a great beginner tobacco since it is simple but tasteful to a younger palette.
