    Hi All,

    The only Brit one which I know which might be available through ETailers is Gawith and Hoggarths "North Star" - a light ribbon cut virginia - I mainly buy it to add to burley OTCs to bulk them up a little/blaance them out.

    Will watch this thread with great inteest for suggestions myself,

    Best as ever

    Flying Dutchman? Hard to find,harder to smoke well...
    Some varieties of Borkum Riff seemed to be heavy on the virginias, though usually flavored with some sort of strong casing.
