Interesting and slightly curious. Highlights the exotic personality of the Katerini varietal. Targets Turkish/Virginia audience with a greater emphasis on the Turkish element. Not much Perique or Black Cavendish. Smokes smoothly with a bright and clean taste and some spice notes and a soft sweetness.

The mildly smoky, woody sweet, lightly spicy and floral Katerini is the lead component. The tangy dark fruity, earthy red Virginia is a supporting player. The raisin and plum from the granulated perique is a little more obvious than the mild spice. This varietal is an ever present in the background. The brown sugary black cavendish adds a light smoothness to the mix. The strength is just shy of the center of mild to medium, while the taste is a step past that. The nic-hit is mild. No chance of bite or harshness, and has no rough edges. The tobacco is a little moist in the tin, but I did not dry it. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent, well balanced flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day smoke that won’t wear out its welcome.
