The grassy, citrusy bright Virginia forms the base of the blend, and has some competition from the toasted, woody, lightly spicy and nutty, dry burley. Some of the Virginia is cavendish processed, which provides a little toast and a touch of honey. The lightly spicy perique is an ever present background player. The burgundy wine topping is dry, more tart than fruity sweet, and mildly floral with a hint of bitter. It does tone down the tobaccos a little. The taste is closer to mild than it is to medium. The nic-hit is very mild. Won’t bite, but can nip at the tongue if you’re a fast puffer. Burns fairly cool at a reasonable pace with a consistent, rather savory flavor. Leaves little moisture the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. The after taste is kind of sour. An all day smoke. Two and a half stars.
