The golden Virginia has a burst of citrus with some sugar and grass, and forms the base of the blend. The nutty, earthy, toasty burley has a light molasses hit in a strong support role, and seems to peek out a fraction more in the last quarter. The unsweetened black cavendish provides a bit of brown sugar, which added to the very rich coffee topping, helps to compensate those who ran out of their morning drink. The vanilla is also rich, though it mainly lurks in the background. The toppings do sublimate the tobaccos a bit, especially the Virginia, though there’s enough tobacco taste to balance out the overall, very smoothly sweet consistent flavors. No chance of bite here. Has no harsh or weak spots. The nic-hit is mild. The strength and taste thresholds are mild to medium, with the taste level being a little stronger. Well balanced, you’ll notice most every aspect of what this blend has to offer in every puff. Mildly moist, it burns at a moderate pace, cool and clean from beginning to end as it easily burns to ash. Requires few relights, and leaves little moisture in the bowl. Has a very pleasant, lingering after taste and room note. An easy going all day smoke that won’t wear your taste buds out no matter how many bowls of it you smoke during the day.
