The Virginias were deeply rich, earthy with the lightly fermented dark fruit taking a little of the lead over the tangy citrus. Had a few grass, stewed fruit and sugar notes, a pinch of cigar and spice, a bit of wood, and a touch of floral and “vinegar”. The strength was just past the center of mild to medium, while the taste was a step closer to medium. The nic-hit was a tad less potent than the strength level. No chance of bite or harshness, but a hint of a rough edge existed at times, though this was mostly a smooth, sweet and mildly savory smoke. Burned cool and clean at a slow pace with a consistent flavor from start to finish. Hardly left any moisture in the bowl, and needed some relights. Had a pleasantly lingering after taste. An all day smoke with some character and complexity that never wore out its welcome in repeat performances.
