A delicate mixture of Golden Virginia with a scintillating touch of fired cured leaf. With some golden Burley and Black Cavendish added, the result is mild, cool, and slow burning. A great way to start the day, or as an all day smoke, Western Sunrise is a truly mild mixture that smells and tastes great.

Notes: A recipe from Outwest Tobacco in Idaho, now out of business but fulfilled by 4Noggins.

Outwest Tobacco - Western Sunrise.

I hate being the first to review a blend!

There's all manner of shapes and sizes in the pouch, right from tiny pieces of shag, to coarse ribbons. Although there's lots of different types of cut, the one that's eluded the pouch is big twigs, there's none of those. I'm a bit perplexed regarding any casing/topping/flavouring: the description says none, but the pouch-note and smoke say different.

My favourite thing about Western Sunrise is the volume of smoke: it generates very thick, white, clouds. This smoke is very cool and doesn't bite. At first it's the black Cavendish in charge, until a little way into a bowl: this is where the fire-cured leaf joins in, and adds a little smokiness. I can't put my finger on what, exactly, the added flavour is, but I definitely get one: it tastes a little sharp, and zesty. To be fair this is stronger for the initial part of a bowl then calms down some. Although it abates, I find it present throughout; it's not heavily cased, but the smoke seems to have been embellished a little. Western Sunrise burns steady, only necessitating the occasional tamp.

The nicotine's a little below medium, and I'm not a fan of the room-note: too heavy.

This isn't offensive, but I wouldn't want to have it often.

Somewhat recommended.
