Sweet Spot for Aged VA'ians

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

My experience is that aged Virginians go one of two ways. Either their rough edges smooth with years or they get even rougher and more irritating.

There’s no way to predict which way it will go.

I have several Ella Fitzgeralds in my cellar that seem to get smoother with time.
My Tom Wolfe’s, however, strike me as edgier with every passing year.

That's why I like to read Tobacco.com reviews. Sure, as Hugo reaffirmed, everyone's tastes differ, but one can get a consensus from reading several of the reviews of a tobacco one is interested in.

Bill Bojangles Robinson certainly was in a sweet spot, beeing buried by Duke Ellington and Cole Porter. Man, I wish in Austria we had famous people too.

I was barrel aged there for two years recently, but i do not think that made me a Virginian.
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal
