Default Virginias and Cavendish

I was wondering if the tobacco called "Virginia" is considered a milder tobacco? Same question goes for whatever cavendish is.

Are you talking about flavor or nicotine content?

Flavor. I have never cared too much about nicotine content.

I would categorize Virginias and cavendish's as milder. Cavendish is mostly used for Aromatics and as such are mostly mild blends.

Very cool to know. So far all the Pipe Tobacco that I have tried have been mainly Virginias and Cavendish. Also so far none of it has had..much of a taste..at least not that I can detect. Upon my research thus far....I believe Tobacco blends with Latakia are most likely going to be for me.

If you are a cigar smoker then I would tend to agree... I found myself drifting back to VA blends after a while & appreciate their flavors more now. I am not sure why this is, but its not an uncommon transition (from what I've read).

Actually I felt that I had the same problems with Cigars that I have had with Virginias. I hadn't touched a Cigar in very long. However thinking back to it..I oddly enough can now recognize the taste that I had with the cigars..I don't know why it took reflecting on it almost a year later, that suddenly I can remember the taste....odd I know. Next time I go to the tobacco shop and pick up some pipe stuff...maybe I will pick up a cigar, and see how it goes.

I'm a big cigar smoker and my favorite pipe blends are VAs and Va/Pers. Virginia may be milder but it bring a lot of subtle flavor along with it! Don't give up hope, its only a matter of time!
