Virginia Blend belongs to the same category as Virginia No. 1. The basic difference is the presence of brown Burley tobacco in the blend. Where Virginia No. 1 is made out of 100% Virginia, the Virginia Blend has some Burley added to it, which gives it a more rounded and mellow taste experience. The small amount of Burley simply smoothens the taste of the natural Virginias.
This is a Ready Rubbed tobacco which means that the tobaccos are pressed into big blocks of tobacco and then stored under pressure for weeks. Finally the blocks are cut into slices and partly rubbed out.
If you fill your pipe with Virginia Blend, just as you find it in the pouch or tin, you will experience a slow burning tobacco with a dominating natural sweet Virginia taste.
Available in pouch and tin
