Using matured Virginias, Best Brown brings a smooth, sweet smoke to the straight Virginia realm. The flake cut begin with hand-stripping the leaves before going into the press. The body and flavor both rank as medium.
Now, Samuel Gawith made some pretty high claims for this tobacco, so I was nervous about lighting this up - could Best Brown live up? Well, it does. The smoke is smooth and appreciates a slow smoke. I found the subtle citrus a pleasant break from the usual Goldens, and I would confirm the medium to both body and flavor.
