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.
