The tangy, ripe dark fruity red Virginia is a little more obvious than the citrusy, grassy golden Virginia. They form the base of the blend. The lightly smoky, woody sweet and floral Katerini also has a spice note in a support role. The woody, nutty, dry and spicy dark fired Kentucky is a condiment. The brown sugary black cavendish is barely noticeable. The toppings include ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, chocolate, and dash of sweet dark rum. They do sublimate the tobaccos a bit, though they don’t drown them out. The strength level is just past mild while the taste level is a little closer to medium than it is to mild. Has a very mild nic-hit. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a mostly consistent flavor that sports a little gentleness amidst the potency. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant spicy, sweet after taste that lingers a mite. Can be an all day smoke.
