The Virginias are grassy with a little earth, some citrus, and a very light fruitiness. They form the base of this blend. The dark fired Kentucky is mildly sweet, fairly smokey, woody, earthy, and very nutty with a fair amount of spice, and competes for the lead spot. The nic-hit is medium. A shag cut that needs a slight hydration to bring out more flavor and reduce the burn rate. A moderate puffing cadence to avoid a cigarette note or two is recommended. Burns well even with added moisture. Has a very consistent flavor, though can tingle your tongue, and may bite if puffed hard. Requires very few relights as it easily burns to ash. Leaves no moisture in the bowl. Has a spicy after taste, though the room note might not please everybody. Some use this for RYO, but it works well in a pipe.
