Aurora highlights the rich flavors of darker types of Virginia. Matured red flue-cured lend a toastiness and a mellow tang, and the the profile is rounded out by the sweetness and depth of lemon-yellow Virginias that have been slowly roasted until they're black.

Hands Down--A Great Virginia!
My favorite Virginia tobacco! Lots of flavor but not overpowering. A very fine blend of quality tobacco. Has that Virginia "sweetness" that seems to be missing from other flakes. Just wish I could buy it in bulk!

A very fine Virginia from the chaps of Virginia tobacco. Great smooth flavor, just a tad sweet.

Good Tobacco But Requires Rubbing Out & A little Dry Time
This is a high quality, good flavored tobacco, but work is involved to prepare it for smoking. In the tin, it is only partially rubbed out, and if one tries to smoke this tobacco straight out of the tin, you will find a lot of re-lighting is required. The large pieces can also block the airway or get drawn into the stem, creating frustration and making for a very unpleasant experience. Don't be afraid that you will crumble the tobacco to dust by rubbing it out. The tobacco is moderately moist out of the tin, so it rubs back out to leaf with patience and diligence. With persistence & patience in rubbing out this tobacco, even good size pieces of lemon yellow leaf appear before your eyes. So, take the time to carefully and thoroughly rub this tobacco out, and afterwards--depending upon the environment where you live, let it dry some until the tobacco no longer sticks to your fingers when you pinch it. Then, pack your pipe with the three handshake rule. First pack, like the handshake of a child. Next layer, a handshake like that of a woman, and lastly, the top bit, as that of a man. I will even save a little space for some drier tobacco "kindling" on the very top, to make for a thorough, even lighting. Then, sit back and get ready to enjoy a very very satisfying smoke with your favorite elixir.

I found this tobacco delicious and delightful, from the first to the last puff. I burns slowly, cleanly and has an aroma that is rich yet subtle. Its flavor is reminding me of a good old high grade Scotch. I already bought more ! :-)

Aurora good at dawn and the rest of the day
This is my go to Straight Virginia. It never disappoints. I am beguiled by the stoved Virginia and the lovely blend of other Virginias
Customer Testimonials
This is a well crafted sweet and mild smoking Virginia. I'd say a good example of what is desirable within this style.
