Finishing out the night with a small bowl of McCranies 2008 Red Ribbon, North Carolina crop in the baby Duke. One to try for sure. I'm stocking up. My three favorite Va's are X-Mas 2013, H H Old Dark Fired and Red Ribbon. Funny though, if you ask me the same question tomorrow my answer will most likely be different.

Bye the way....
Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. LOL

Nice to learn all I can about tobacco. I am starting to want to try more english blends. May have to include some Va.s in the new to me tobaccos.

The thing I like about Va's is the way the sugars change the tobacco as you smoke it. Usually, the bowl becomes sweeter and sweeter as you smoke through it. As a cig smoker they also tend to satisfy my nic crave. For English I like Squadron Leader, 956 and although may not be considered an English, for Latakia my fav is Frog Mortons Celler, a great tobacco.
My humble opinion, you will never know if you like something if you don't try it.

Yeah, could be the same here.  Virginias in all manner of blends are good, and the longer they age before smoking, the better they get.
