Tasty and relaxaing
A mild smoke with nuances of sweet hay and grass. There is a hint of white pepper and remarkably stays consistent throughout the bowl. Taking a whiff of tin note, it's obvious there isn't any topping or flavoring. It has a pungent fermenting dark fruit aroma. The color of the tobacco is rather dark, however, smoking reveals a tasty and relaxing flake. My favorite aspect about MB HH Pure Virginia is the mild flavor with a soda (or carbonated) mouthfeel and undertone.

Smooth, tasty slices!
Excellent tobacco--3 of 5 on nicotine content, seems to me. A good alternative, along with Orlik Golden, for those who hate to see the Royal Yacht by Dunhill take its final voyage.

Sweet and tangy
If you like pure virginia this is for you. Sweet and tangy. Hay like, has that known virginia bite if you puff too fast. Can be smoked all day. I like the HH stuff by MacBaren so Im partial.

Possibly the best Virginia flake out there
Great flake. Very forgiving and full flavored. Not your average Virginia flake

As Advertised
Good straightforward Virginia. Personally think some aging would only make it better.

Sweet Bright and Hay
This tobacco smokes evenly and cool if you sip it, but punishes those chasing plumes or rushing. (In this way, it is a typical VA and a typical MacBaren.) Take your time and you will be rewarded with notes of hay, sugar (tastes like a nip of the signature MacBaren sweetness is added, but it only compliments the VAs), and some earthy-sweet vegetal bass notes. Altogether a bright mixture, all day, low N, light body, full flavor smoke. I highly recommend it.

Great pure Virginia FLAKE
As a very mellow unique flavor, the flag itself is very thin which makes it quite easy to break up. I enjoy the Pleasant mild flavor. I don't know about anybody else but I got a distinct raisin flavor.

The best all-Virginia around
I have fallen in love with this blend of virginias. It has all of the wonderfully bready, grassy, nutty notes you hear about from Virginia lovers, and the flakes are packed at just the perfect moisture level. It burns cool, evenly, and slowly with a thick body of smoke with a wonderful mouthfeel that is smooth and delectable. Nicotine level is medium-range, definitely stronger than, say, a bowl of pure ribbon-cut red Virginia. I have long been a fan of blends with a healthy dose of black cavendish, and am a huge fan of Lane LL-7, but this H&H Pure Virginia turned me into a true Virginia believer. Never disappoints. It’s great right out of the tin, and I suspect it has already been well-aged, but i’m excited to see what a few years of extra cellaring will do...if I can keep my lands off of it for that long. I can say with high confidence that if you give this a try, you won’t be dissapointed.

A fair replacement for McCllend 5100
My brother had smoked the 5100 for years. When that company went under he was at a loss for what he wanted to smoke. He tried several blends only to be dissatisfied. I looked in the Pipes and Cigars catalog and read that the Pure Virginia was a blend of Virginia tobaccos with a minimum amount of casing, I bought a small tin for him to try. He loved it, and now buys it by the pound. THANKS P&S!

Good right out of the tin. Gonna let it age for a while and see what happens

One of the best
This is one of the best straight Virginias out there. I could smoke nothing but this, except that it's a surprisingly stout smoke for a straight VA, especially if just broken and not rubbed out. Not really a mellow smoke, but a bit more mellow if fully rubbed out. It's a bit much on a hot day at the beach; maybe this is more of a winter smoke of a straight VA. Or if you like straight VAs but want a little more umph sometimes. Burns fine under all conditions (and I don't dry things out), even if just folded and gently stuffed so it's mostly intact. Long-but-pleasant aftertaste.

I really, really love this stuff. Sweet, but also with a wonderful depth of flavor. Possibly my favorite Virginia flake.

Greatest stuff on Earth!
THIS is what straight Virginia is supposed to be! Nothing else to say, really, except wishing that it wasn't backordered.

Clean and mild but aging helps
Overseas trip started a bit of mold but was easy to cut out and separate. After drying for a couple days and a week in the jar the flakes have become fruity with that butter smell of maturing. It is very mild and enjoyable. It has more of a nic hit than expected which is a bonus for an all Virginia. It is very clean like a distilled water. This will be very enjoyable the more it cellars but is just fine fresh.

Best Virgina tobacco ever
This is an email I sent to Mac Baren hope it helps I don't write reviews much but felt I had to for this tobacco: I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you I have been smoking pipe tobacco for 36 years and have tried more than I can count. I just yesterday received a tin of your HH Pure Virginia tobacco, I liked it so much that I turned around the same day and ordered 5 pounds of it. That was all I could find for sale on the web sites that I use. I have tried numerous Mac Baren blends over the years and I have a few that I sometimes regularly smoke. The HH Pure Virginia is the best tobacco I have ever smoked out of all yours and everyone else....... Please continue to make this and I think as pipe smokers try this especially if they are Virginia smokers they will make it there favorite tobacco out of all other Virginia's. Thank you for being a great company and doing what you do everyday for the love of us pipe smokers in the world.

Ok but not my favorite
Been trying Virginias the past two years. HH Pure was a little bitter for me on first light but was sweeter on relight.

Pure Virginia is pure Virginia
So, I picked this up on a whim while browsing at my local tobacconist this morning. I got home and couldn't help but pack a bowl and I was very pleased. It's just a pure, grassy Virginia. It tastes just like a fresh mowed field would smell; absolutely wonderful. From the tin the moisture was perfect, needing no drying time, and the flakes were beautifully pressed. Defiantly one that is going into my standard rotation.

Great tobacco
Great presentation. Dunhill flake is my all time favorite Virginia flake, this is a close 2nd. Needs about 20 mins dry time. Summertime means Virginia flakes!!

A very enjoyable smoke
The first couple of bowls I smoked of HH Pure Virginia were just ok. The flavor was good but I wasn't wowed in any way. But the more I smoked it the better it got and now stands proudly next to the rest of the MacBaren HH line which has become, in my mind, the front runner of tobacco blends. Highly recommended.
