The Virginias provide light grass and earth, a little citrus and dark fruit as the base of the blend. The various burleys offer a bit of nuttiness, some molasses, wood and earth, as well as a touch of cocoa and slightly takes a lead over the Virginias. The Cyprian latakia mostly just adds a smoky, woody sweet push to the proceedings. A hint of spicy, raisiny perique lurks in the background. The mocha is a complimentary addition that doesn’t tone down the tobaccos much at all. I also sense a touch of rum and anise. The nic-hit is a step above being mild. The taste threshold is medium while the strength is in the middle of mild to medium, though both aspects start out just below those levels. No chance of bite, and has no harsh or dull moments. Well blended, you’ll notice most of these characteristics in every puff. Burns a shade below a moderate pace, cool and clean with a very smooth, rather creamy sweet consistent flavor as it easily burns to ash. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a very pleasant after taste and room note. An easy going all day smoke that won’t wear down your tastebuds.
