    When I had open the pouch the aroma was a tangy fruit essence . The tobacco is cut in pieces in which I had to break down the tobacco in order to pack the pipe. Once the charring had started the first few puffs were dry. As I had smoked the bowl half way down the essence improved , a slight sweet taste that a Virginia tobacco is known for started to come forward . My Stanwell pipe stayed cool as I had smoked it down . I took my time while smoking this blend and being patient had paid off.This blend is mild to a medium in strength and I have found that its simplicity is it's best suit.

    I'm glad you gave this blend some time while smoking and that it has payed off. While Amphora Virginia could be categorized as an OTC blend it has a lot to offer when taken slowly and carefully. I love its deep notes that ocassionally spoil my palate, must be some dark virginia leaves. I'm finishing my first pouch and will probably buy it again.

    It's nice stuff for sure.

    Seems to be quality blend for being an OTC,
