The first one that comes to my mind as one that I’ve tried and definitely didn’t like was Louisiana Red from H&H. Far too much of a sharp vinegar-like tang for me. I’m sure there are plenty more out there but I’ve since been avoiding them.
H&H Louisiana red is fucking amazing.

I get what you are saying here and agree. As a straight red Va lover, it can clash with good Perique. I love ketchup and I love figs/plums, but I can't abide fig-ketchup.

In my opinion red virginia makes for more full bodied and complex smoke. Bright leaf makes for a lighter more one dimension smoke. I love them both
