Sutliff Red Virginia Ribbon

Sutliff Red Virginia Ribbon has been a staple of the P&C Faithful for years. On its own, it has a natural, mellow sweetness and hints of toast and roasted nuts. Though many people enjoy it straight, Sutliff Red Virginia Ribbon really shines as a blending component. It can lighten and dry down overly moist aromatics without lessening the sweetness. It can add richness to Latakia blends and is the perfect companion for Perique. If you adjust some of your blends or just enjoy a subtle, straight Virginia, you should always keep some on hand.

I bought this for blending
I bought this for blending and it's so good, by itself, I didn't want to use it for blending. I'll buy more. I didn't even realize how much I liked Virginias. If you're new to tobacco, as I am, this might be just what you're looking for

Probably won’t buy again
A little stronger than most pure Virginia’s I’ve tried. Also came very dry, had to hydrate. Trying to find a replacement for Lane bright Virginia that is no longer available.

Sutliff Red Virginia Ribbon Enhancer
Sutliff RVR as a standalone smoke is good but very mild without much character. I use RVR in every pipe-full to enhance the flakes I smoke. I tried mixing but that was not a solution for me. I recommend you pack the bottom third of your pipe with RVR and fill the rest of your pipe with some of my favorite flakes: Peterson Signature, Dunhill Dark Flake, Escudo or Peter Stokebye Luxury Navy Flake(bulk). I find the enhanced flavor addicting. It adds character to the smoke like a good Cuban.

Sutliff matured red Virginia
Excellent! Very similar to McClelland; a suitable replacement. Flavorful and cool and dry burning.

Great Blending Tobacco for RYO for the $
Great for blending in RYO. Similar to VA flake tobaccos like Orlik Gold and Luxury Navy flake. Easier to work with for RYO and much cheaper. I was very happily surprised after my first two batches blended with Norwegian & PenHooker & Windsail blends. I taste tea, hay/slightly burnt hay, and a bit of molasses/fig. Not as sweet and figgy as Orlik. Very worth trying.

Good Virginia!
Very good all around Virginia. Not bad on its own, great blended with burley!

I loved this tobacco right away. It tends to dry fast--BUT wow that's when it turns supreme! It truly is uniquely like nothing else. Try blending it with Perique and Latakia. Rich, hearty!

Well Done
This is a great tobacco, not overly hot burning Virginia. Mix with a strong burley for a grand non aromatic smoke, or enjoy a sweet, bready smoke all by itself.

Sutliff Red Virginia Ribbon
Better than I thought it would be. I think there is something other than Virginia in the blend. I almost want to say it has Burley in it. Could make a great base or blending extender.

Great blending tobacco
I enjoy this tobacco by itself or mixing when I feel the need to have this flavor or add more red Virginia flavor. It really works well with Latakia or burley blends. By its self or blended it's very flavorful.

Sweet & Simple
This Sutliff Red Virg. is quite mild and exceptionally cool. It does not have much nuance but I enjoy it and will order more. I originally got it to cut my Anniversary Kake which is too rich in perique for my taste, but I think I may smoke it straight also.

Sutliff Red Virginia Ribbon
Smoked alone or mixed with your favorite Burley, Perique or Latakia blend, this Red Virginia can't be beat. It gives just the right amount of sweetness to a blend. I also have to mention that P&C is an oasis in a desert of wannabes. The others don't even come close to matching the outstanding selection of tobacco and the superb service that P&C offers.

Good stuff
I ordered some of this red Virginia to tone down the Latakia in a mix I had and I was quite impressed at how well it complimented the mix. Great stuff to use in a mix or all by itself. I highly recommend it

Great straight Virginia here, I would blend it with others, maybe a pich of latakia, but it is great by itself. everything you expect from a Virginia. This one goes for the all-day rooster
