The base of Burley and Virginia is indeed somewhat neutral and doesn't infringe on the flavor of the Perique at all. I do get a mild nuttiness from the Burley and a touch of hay from the Virginia. There is a mild sweetness that seems to come from both. The Perique, as designed, is the star of the show. It does have a dark espresso/coffee like flavor. I can't detect any fruitiness or herbal notes. The spice is ample yet gentle giving no distress to the throat or nasal passages. I find this to be a pure pleasure to smoke and I think I may be getting a little addicted to it. Perfect moisture straight from the tin. No drying time needed. A wonderful smoke.
Medium in body and taste. No added flavorings. Burns very well, in fact, a bit quick without getting hot.
