Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The dark ripe fruity, very earthy, woody, lightly sugary and spicy chocolate brown colored stoved Virginias are the major component. A minor amount of bright, tart citrusy bright Virginia also has a few blades of grass and spice. I also sense a little molasses and nuts from a trace of burley in the background. The topping is hard to define, but I get a very mild sense of berries and perhaps a hint of plum from it. It’s hard to tell as the fermented quality of the sweet Virginias interferes with my ability to perceive exactly what the topping is. The nic-hit is a hair past the mild threshold. No chance of bite or harshness, and has no dull or weak moments. The taste level just a shade beyond mild. Minimally complex and well balanced, it burns cool and clean at a slow to moderate pace with a very smooth, creamy consistent flavor from start to finish. Requires a few relights, and leaves little moisture in the bowl. Has a very sweet, woody, mildly spicy after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.

Mild Flake is what one might imagine Dunhill Light Flake to be if Burley were in the mix. Bronze Virginia with tang and Burley for added strength. I smoked the only tin I had back in 1996 according to my notes, so, there was plenty of age to the leaf even then.
