This stuff is a real banger! That Virgina tang is in full force here and puffed slowly remains throughout. As the bowl went on and if I pushed it I got some deeper, earthy bready notes but always a backdrop to that classic Virginia zing! Only one bowl in but I’m very impressed with Sutliff 515 RC-1, and for a bulk, really couldn’t ask for more here! Produces a good amount of smoke and stayed consistent, mostly on the high note side of things and picked up some sweetness toward the latter half of the bowl. I would say a little lighter than Red Cake, and a little different but in a very good way!

These are the blends of which i think I get the most enjoyment. It’s simple, flavorful, comes at a very nice moisture content and doesn’t knock me on my butt! One of the best Sutliff blends I’ve had to date!

Second Opinion:

Sutliff - Matured Red VA...

The fairly tangy, earthy, woody, ripe dark fruity red Virginia also sports a very light tart sour note with a bare hint of the floral and bread. The strength is a step past the center of mild to medium, while the taste is close to medium. The nic-hit is tad less potent than the strength level. Won’t bite or get harsh. It may need a very light dry time. Burns cool and clean at a slightly slow pace if the tobacco is moist. Has a very consistent sweet flavor with a touch of savoriness from start to finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering after taste and room note. An all day smoke that also makes a excellent mixer. It’s not quite McClelland 5100 - much less vinegar, and it's tangier, but just a little less sweeter - but it is the closest you will get to it. Should age well, though it’s ready to go as it is.

Yup, it's pretty nice! Give it a few months in a jar and the zinginess tones down. Glad you're liking it!

I blend it with a 8 year old perique and stoved virginia and press into pucks. Stuff is awesome and is my daily blend.

Enjoyed my first bowl of this blend last night! Is it McC's 5100? Can't say, never tried 5100! I will say this is one fine Ginnyweed in and of itself!! FWIW cheers FTRPLT

I pressed this for 14 days and it gets real dark. Like French Pastry with dark fruit. Takes about 2 hours to smoke a bowl. Nice sweetness!
