    Well I am lucky enough to have quickly discovered that my palate prefers straight virginias and now I'm looking for more to try. I currently have the Tinderbox blends Sunset and Reserve 1928. Obviously I need the McClelland matured Va's are up there on my shopping list so I would like to know...

    Hey everyone, I had another question for you all. Whenever someone talks about McC's bulk VAs, they always talk about 5100. What about the other offerings? Has anyone tried 2020, or 2015? 5105, 5115....the list goes on. I'd be interested in picking a few up just because. But I was...

    I have a few unopened tins and bags of tobacco that are approaching the 2 year age such as Stonehaven, FVF and others. Is there an optimum age at which Virginias reach their peak or do they just keep improving or even level out? Should I be smoking these now or should I wait?

    Could someone recommend any sweet virginian that is actually in stock? I recently got some burley which I wasn't to impressed with. Yes it was Mac Baren. I feel like an ass for buying a pound worth. The container looked so delicious and it was late. I sure regret making such a dumb purchase.:nono:

    IMO there is just not enough talk on these forums of one of the smoothest smoking virginias out there. Yes some would call this an aromatic but try putting about 4 years of age on it and tell me what you think. The flavoring moves way to the background and weds with the sweet virginia tobacco...

    I spent some time comparing the FVF I just bought to the stuff I had leftover from last year. . .HUGE difference. The aged stuff is just so much fuller, smoother, better. I think I've come to the conclusion that I really shouldn't be smoking any Virginias without some age on them. I have some...

    Today I ordered 100g tins of HH Mature Virginia and Virginia #1, both by MacBaren, hoping to find a stand-in for my FVF, which is almost gone. I read the reviews and they both look promising. Can anyone comment on these tobaccos or offer other suggestions? Any help is appreciated.

    So I've been smoking pipe baccy for a couple of years now and try as I may, I cannot appreciate pure VA baccy. I tried Orlik Golden slices and FVF and all I get is grass on the palate - not something I really enjoy. Now I have tried some VA/Pers like Haddo's delight and Escudo and I love Escudo...

    Are all Virginias the flake style of tobacco. I find them a little harder to keep lit and was wondering if there is any regular type tobacco in the Virginias. Not sure what the regular is called though. Ive tried McBarons Extra Golden and the Classic Virginia from Mcllelland.

    Hi guys, I'll be visiting the US, in August, and want to buy a few tins of american made tobaccos. I smoke english/balkan blends, and straight viriginias. No perique or aromatics for me... On the english/balkan side my favorites go from SL, EMP and Erinmore Balkan Mixture to Black...

    When I first got into pipe smoking I was smoking only aromatics (Boswell blends), but after about a month I tried some Latakia English blends and fell in love. I was pretty much on a strict Latakia diet after that with the occasional aromatic or Virginia tobacco thrown in. I was never really...

    I´m only smoking pipes for the last couple of months, and where I live is very hard to find tinned tobaccos other than Peterson's and a couple more. So, untill now I´ve only smoked Old Dublin, Irish Oak, University Flake, and also St. Bruno, MacBaren Mixture, Virginia nº1 and Amphora Red...

    Hey folks. I have two questions that have been nagging me ever since I started smoking a pipe. I understand what Latakia, Perique, and Orientals are in the abstract. And RevSmoke was kind enough to bestow upon me a generous sample of aged pure Perique for blending. But I want to gain a...

    we all know that heat hurts, unless you just don't have nerve endings in your tongue. we all know that smoking bitey virginias (or va/per, or va/burley) in a short pipe will cause your tongue to feel tingly for days. do you all tend to make your longer pipes the ones you smoke for virginias...

    I was at JR's yesterday and they carry a lot of McClelland tins. I was looking at them and noticed all the different Virginias they have. I know for sure they had tins of No 22,24,25,27. I went on TobaccoReviews see what other Virginias they had and I noticed they have a lot of Bulk ones too...

    Relatively new to pipes but in the last few months I have learned enogh about pack, light, sipping and heat to really start enjoying my bowls. BTW - thanks to all of you that have directly and indirectly guided me to where I am now....... So far I have mostly hung around with...

    Flakes: Rattrays' Old Gowrie, Marlin Flake. Orlicks' Golden Sliced (a good beginner) most seem to really like it or really not like it. McClellands: No. 24, Blackwoods, Bulk #2015 (has perique) Ashton: Brindle Flake, Pebblecut, Black Parrot (has Perique) note: these were made by McClelland and...

    I recently bought my first decent briar pipe and with it I got two samples of pipe tobacco; a Burley and a Virginia. Now I know your not supposed to use the same pipe for aromatics and non-aromatics, but what about using the same pipe Virginias and Burleys?

    Hey Guys, As I've been experimenting with differrent tobaccos lately. I've found I really enjoy Virginias and English blends but I had a curious question about Virginias. The Virginia blends I've tried have been on the medium/mild side of things. Is this a charecteristic of Virginias? I...
