John Cotton's Mellow Virginia

I just resurrected a full but dried out 50g tin of the stuff.

It's absolutely wonderful dammit. Now I know what I'm going to be missing once it's empty.

Anyone here smoke the stuff before, and can recommend a substitute that's available via USA internet tobacconists?

Re: John Cotton's Mellow Virginia

Good grief, it's been so long since I've smoked any, I barely remember what it tastes like... I only remember that I loved it. Good luck with that!

Re: John Cotton's Mellow Virginia

It's the most enjoyable Virginia I've had. It's so silky smooth, with a gentle raisin note/taste that melds with the tobacco rather than smothering it.

It almost tastes like a whisper of nutmeg?!? in there as well? I've never encountered this before.

It makes Full Virginia Flake (which I enjoy quite a bit) seem brutish by comparison.

*sigh*

Re: John Cotton's Mellow Virginia

And therein lies the question: Should we bypass smoking a blend that we know we'll never see again and will never be duplicated, or should we allow ourselves the sublime pleasure and file it in our bank of good memories?

Quite honestly, neither answer is very appealing, so I say, when in doubt, smoke it!
