John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia

Have you avoided Virginias because they tend to be sharp? Those days are over with John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia.

A blend of sweet Virginias is first pressed and then sliced into a flake. It's then tumbled into a ribbon, allowed to breathe and put back into the mold to be pressed again into a crumble cake. This darkens the leaf, gives it a deeper, richer flavor, and takes much of the "edge" off the blend. Finally, there's a Virginia tobacco that just about anyone can enjoy - John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia.

John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia was the winner of the 2019 Chicago Bowl.

Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia
I usually a lat. blend pipe smoker, but I really like the JCotton double pressed series without exception. Very rich and strong-- both the virginia and the latakia double pressed.

Virginia conversion
I generally have not liked all that much the Virginia only smokes, hey, this one is a real keeper for a warm smooth change from the lats that I typically go for. John Cotton mixtures, for me, are almost always winners.

Good purchase
Well worth the few extra dollars spent for a very enjoyable and flavorful smoke. Just for kicks, I sometimes add a pinch of blending perique to a bowlful. A slower puffing cadence contributes greatly to the enjoyment.

if you want a light smoke this is for you.
This smokes very light. It is very mellow taste and doesn't have a bite but I prefer cornell & diehl star of the east flake out of some of the pipe tobacco I've smoked.

Best Virginia smoke yet
I love va tobacco I think this is one of the best tobacco’s for a good evening smoke but you have to smoke it slow to get the full flavor and even burn without bite it is my new go to tobacco I love it and I will be ordering more you can’t go wrong

Love the John Cotton pressed tobacco. Can be bitey on the tounge but smoking slow is key to reduce that effect and enjoy it's full flavor. The room note is pleasant and mild. It is a pleasant smoke once one slows down enough to appreciate its many qualities.

John Cotton's Double Pressed Virginia
I am a true over of aromatics, which this one isn't. I do like the occasional straight blend as just a change. It is a good, natural non aromatic and is very enjoyable. I continue to enjoy it for as a break. Non aromatic lovers will go crazy for it, imo.

A great smoke.
Do yourself a favor and give this one a try. You wont regret it. I smoke predominantly Virginia tobacco and this will be going into my regular rotation. Will be buying more.

Awesome blend!
Hands down the best Virginia I have smoked. All the negative aspects of a virginia blend are gone. Doesnt get sour or acidic and burns cool. Absolutely love it!

Good smoke
There's a reason why John Cotton has been around for so long. This Double Pressed Virginia is another reason. It fits nicely into my rotation.

Burns very cool. Has a nice mellowness and no bite, This blend will get better with age.

Mellow medium strength Virginia
I usually smoke a Virginia in a meerschaum, so bear that in mind. This a nice mellow medium strength smoke that has just a little bite but not much. Has a nice "back" to it and not terrifically high on the nicotine index--although, there's more here than any latakia based blend for sure

I am not a Virginia tobacco person but like this "very" much. Very mild.
