The tart and tangy, dark fruity, earthy red Virginia is complimented by the grassy, citrusy bright Virginia, and only takes a slight lead between the two. The woody, earthy, lightly nutty and toasty, spicy dark burley is a supporting player. The spicy, raisin and plummy perique underscores every puff. The unsweetened black cavendish offers a little brown sugar. The vanilla and caramel play at the same level with the cocoa close behind them, and all tone down the topping to a mild to moderate extent. The strength is a step closer to mild than it is to medium. The taste level is step closer to medium than it is to mild, though there is a light gentleness to it amidst a little punch from the burley. The nic-hit is mild. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent, sweet and lightly savory, spicy flavor that translates to the after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke.
