This comes in a course broken flake form. It has Orange and Red Virginia's with St. James Parish Perique.
The tin has a really deep rich tobacco smell and just a hint of ketchup (unlike some McClelland tins)
My tin is about 1 1/2 yrs old and was a little moist when I opened it. I rubbed some out and let it sit on
a paper towel for almost an hour. Still a bit moist but I was impatient to try it. It took a bit to get it going
but when it did, it was surprisingly cool on the tongue and retrohale. Had a few relights which I don't care
about but continued to give that sweet Virginia flavor with just enough Perique to make it interesting.
I love Va-Pers but sometimes the Perique can be overwhelming to me. This was a really nice balanced tobacco.
Can't wait to try some more when it drys out a bit. I rub my flakes but it's broken enough to fold in your pipe
if that's what you do.
Worth a try if you enjoy Va-Pers.
