    I received some SG MVF a week ago and fell in love with the raw mellow flavor of this blend. As it's hard to get one's hands on most of the SG blends these days, I was curious what other blends would mimmic the SG MVF. Most of the other VA's I have tried have a stronger more finished flavor. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Mac Baren Virginia Flake is close. Also might try MVF's big brother FVF for a little more kick and Mac Barens Navy Flake for a more fruity smoke.

    I haven't had MVF for a while, but when you use words like raw and mellow, (and me knowing the constituent ingredients of MVF), I think maybe any primarily 'bright/lemon' VA blend would be close. Maybe. I'm working on a tin of Ashton's Gold Rush that may be similar. I believe McClelland has a bulk called East(ern?) Carolina Ribbon that may parallel as well.

    But like I said, it's been a while. Just thought a few more blends being named would give you chance to explore.

    One more thing...I know the SG availability issue, but isn't MVF a twin to SG's tinned Golden Glow(I think that's its name)? That gives you two blends to potentially get frustrated over not finding anywhere!

    Thank you both for the suggestions! I have heard that golden glow is the tin version but both are difficult to find to say the least. I will definitly give the astons, Macb, and mccellands an old college try.
