The woody, earthy, dry and buttery sweet, mildly floral Turkish also sports a touch of spice and takes a small lead over the other tobaccos. The smoky, woody, earthy, lightly musty and sweet Cyprian latakia provides ample support. The grassy, rather citrusy bright Virginia is just more than a condiment. The unsweetened black cavendish offers some sugar, but it's not very detectable. The strength and nic-hit are a little closer to mild than it is to medium. The taste is almost in the center of mild to medium. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a slightly fast pace with mostly consistent flavor from start to finish as it easily burns to ash. Hardly leaves any dampness in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a very pleasant, short lived after taste. By design, it is an all day Turkish forward smoke with just enough depth to hold your interest.
