I don't know what it is about straight reds but I'm just not into them. There's just an after taste in my mouth that isn't appealing. Some folks have a chemical/allergic type of reaction that burns like Hades to them but that isn't it for me. It does have a vinegary/ketchup type of smell to me as well. It is great as part of a blend and brings a lot to a mixture but straight don't do it for me. It's a shame as what most of you are saying about red VA sound like I should be all over it.

EXPERTS are anyone with a strong differing opinion. It's not a compliment. It's sarcasm and a put-down. Got it.  

Aristokles made a pretty valid observation. That no other blending outfit seems to come up with that (what should we call it?) poontang essence/smell/aura that they're famous for. Why is that? If it's not an additive, it has to be for the same reason that SF sourdough is so distinctive. The unique bacteria and yeast to that little patch of the world?

And Greg in his writting about it explained it rather well I'd say. Next time your up here, get up to N.Carolina and go to the 'baccy auctions in Durham and you'll smell that SAME ascerbic aroma from the flue cured Red Va's in the barn. As far as OTHER blends with that aroma, 4 that I've smoked come to mind, Peretti's Oxford Flake, mainly pressed Red Va's, Wessex'x Classic Va, again, mainly Red Va based, Fribourge & Treyer's Blackjack, another Red Va based Va mixture and McConnell's Red Virginia and you guessed it, Red Va based !! Ascerbic, slightly vinegrey yes, ketchup, no. But I will defer to the group expertise and have to agree McClelland's just POURS ketchup on ALL it's blends !! There is that better ? Twisted Evil Twisted Evil BTW I know NOTHING about sarcasm, now Kyle is a different thing Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Does everything McClelland have to become a pissing contest with you lovers and haters of fine Virginia tobacco??? I guess I'll answer my own question. YES.

A quick questionnaire:

Are you on the Internet?  (Yes/No)

If "Yes," it's probably a pissing contest, somehow, some way.

If "No," you're probably doing something better, anyway.  

Cool

The verbal jousting really doesn't project the friendly/professional atmosphere we're trying to maintain here on this forum.

Yes, when the question is irrelevant to the argument. I happen to enjoy "fine Virginia tobacco" very much. McClelland too often spoil theirs.

With such high-brow commentary it is no wonder so many of my friends no longer light up in this forum.

But your snarky comments are fine, right?
