Revor Plug, in my Wiley Rhiody/Dub.

Cleaned up the rim today with some strong black coffee. It doesn't smoke any different but boy howdy does that make a difference to the visual appeal!

Cool 



Cheers,

Nice pairing.

So how close is the wanna be? lol. I thought I heard the new was a dead ringer for the last version of the original.

It's very close. I can tell a few differences, but they are minor. Here's my review:

It packs well, stays lit, and is a very cool, consistent smoke all the way to the bottom - no bite or moisture. Nutty with a molasses flavor and a little cocoa. I can see this being a decent starter burley for someone who has never tried the genre, and I can certainly see it being a regular rotation blend. The Virginia is slightly sweet and grassy, but it stays in the back ground. A really good work and all day play smoke that may not be complex, but will satisfy your wants for OTC burleys.

This Match is very close to the original. I spent a weekend comparing the two versions. The original seemed a little fuller, deeper in the molasses taste, and that's the only difference I can tell. The cut and look of the tobacco is the very same. The more I smoke it, the better I like it. In a blind taste test, it would be very hard to tell which was which.

EDIT: The batch I got in the Spring of 2015 tastes as I have described it above. However, the cut was changed to a rough cut with some small chunks, and the tobacco is lighter is color. This version burns slower, but at least it tastes the same. Others have reported the same change in cut. Wish they would have left it alone.
