This is a Virginia and Burley blend. Tonquin and whiskey are added for flavor. The tobacco is a solid plug of tobacco that needs to be sliced into flakes for pipe smoking. This tobacco is aged 6 years. Right off the bat, I noticed the tonquin flavor is not as pronounced as it was when I first got this tobacco. The whiskey flavor is no longer noticed to my palate. Flavors are earthy, peppery, very strong and intense tobacco flavors. Puffing this tobacco hard will give you overly strong tobacco and very peppery. This tobacco needs to be smoked slow to get the best flavors. When I sip this tobacco. I get a more complex flavor experience. Lots of burley, hints of Virginia, slight smokey flavors. Wonderful smoking experience. Smokes cool since smoking it slow. Huge nicotine hit. If you enjoy very strong tobacco, give this a try. If you can't find it, the 1792 flake tobacco is the same tobacco.

What is tonquin? I couldn't find any reference to what it is. Please fill me in.

From Wikipedia...

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dipteryx_odorata

It is used in pipe tobacco to add a mild vanilla like flavor, and as a natural perservative. It seems to have married into the tobacco blend over time. Tonquin sweet was stronger when I first got this tobacco. It is barely noticeable 6 years later.
