I just saw that aged Virginia today, if you crack it any time soon, let me know how it is! I’m quite curious. Looks fancy, and the price tag was nothing to sneeze at.

I have smoked the Aged Virginia in the morning. I have limited exposure to Virginia, since I have got into it fairly recently. In another thread someone referred to this as one dimensional / bread like / savory / umami. I would agree with most of his tasting notes. It is a glorious smoke and I found it very savory. At the beginning of the bowl I got some occasional sweetness but from the beginning to end, I found it savory / like a hearty soup. An occasional oriental like presence was there, but that may be my imagination. I cannot reason why - but every puff made me think I am smoking something premium - possibly because there were no harsh parts. It reminded me of some of the highest quality virginia based cigarettes as well.
I would recommend this.

I am from Bengal originally - So Bengal Slices should be part of my cellar!

The presentation of that Aged Virginia sure is nice! Definitely let that Bijou age for a bit. For me, it was a bit harsh right out of the tin. Currently letting it mellow out in the cellar!

Yes ... I will Age this. I buy more than I smoke, so most goes to cellar.
