The grassy, very citrusy bright Virginia forms the base of the blend, though its effect is as an important supporting player. The two more obvious components are the woody, dry, buttery sweet, earthy Turkish and the smokey, earthy, woody sweet Cyprian latakia. The Turkish also sports a hint of spice. Both it and the latakia have some richness and depth, and compete for the lead in regard to what you experience. The unsweetened black cavendish adds a little smooth sugariness to tame any potential rough spots. The strength and taste levels are medium. The nic-hit is step past the center of mild to medium. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent, sweet and smoky deep campfire flavor that translates to the lingering after taste. Requires a few more than an average number of relights. Not quite an all day smoke, but veteran smokers may consider it to be one.
