The light and darker Virginias offer a bit of citrus, some dark fruit, grass and earth, and a drop or two of honey. They form the base of the blend. The rather smoky, woody sweet, lightly spicy and floral Katerini starts out just behind the Virginias, and take a small lead just before the half way mark. The raisiny, plumy, spicy perique is an important condiment. The brown sugary black cavendish adds a smoothness in the background. The strength is just past the center of mild to medium and almost reaches the medium level in the second half of the bowl. The taste level is consistently medium. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. No chance of bite or harness, and barely has an occasional rough edge. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a sweet and mildly savory, woody, rich flavor that translates to the lingering after taste. Burns to ash with little effort on the part of the smoker. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran, and perhaps for the less experienced as well.

I’m really enjoying this blend. I might just make it a favorite.

When I cracked the tin, I got a sweet cocoa note. The tin note was so sweet I almost thought this blend was supposed to be an aromatic. After an hour or two of airing out, it transitioned into a natural va/per/or blend similar to McC’s Tudor Castle or Pease’s Cairo. This blend has a beautiful ribbon cut that almost rival’s Dunhill’s, and a moisture content that is ready to smoke after a few minutes of dry time. The smoke is fantastic. It starts with woody and spicy Perique and oriental notes, with a subtle sweetness. After mid-bowl, the sweet and tangy Virginia’s take over. I’m almost through my first tin, and I’m ready to order more. I haven’t had a blend grab me this quickly in awhile. I’m looking forward to seeing if it stands the test of time. Four stars so far...
