About: The Amphora Virginia tastes mild-spicy with a distinct roasted note.
As promised by the manufacturer there is to taste a fine sweetness reminding of dry fruits. If the pipe is kept cool, a subtle flowery taste occurs, but the tobacco is also able to tolerate it when the puffing is too violent sometimes, which is unusual for a pure Virginia. Apart from an occasional tamping, the Amphora Virginia smokes uncomplicatedly, then medium gray ash and little condensation remains in the pipe.
Redolency: The Amphora Virginia with its sweetish note reminds non-smokers of “typical pipe smell” in the air, which is why it is quite suitable for society.
Conclusion: The Amphora Virginia is a Ready Rubbed in all shades of brown, whose sweet hay smell is also found in the taste.
The tobacco supplies the expected roasted notes from a typical Virginia and a fine sweetness. If you take Amphora Virginia with some care and does not mind to have to use the tamper occasionally, the tobacco offers an uncomplicated, quiet smoke without overpowering, so that the Amphora Virginia for each time of the day (and of course also the evening) is suitable.
