    No. 44 Dark Virginia is a good blend.

    I have just started exploring these. I have liked the 4 that I tried (Nos. 1, 44, 99, and 109), and intend to try the rest.

    I've only tried #2 (THANKS SECRET SANTA).. If you like Virginias with a light and sweet casing (think capstan or erinmore) it's worth a shot.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine
