Damn... what a smoke! The cake looks intriguing and has a scent of salty seawater, smoky woods and lots of leather, as well as a whiff of buttery, creamy sweetness.
I usually wouldn't have chosen a blend with 50% Latakia, but after being amazed by Hans Wiedemanns (HU Tobacco) English/Balkan blends - most with 50%+ Latakia in them - and how smooth and unobtrusive a blend with such high amount of Latakia can be, without being a Latakia-Bomb that drowns all the other components, I dared to try the Moro Cake by my other favorite blender from Germany... Tom Darasz! Well... actually it's by his (only!) co-worker for the production Salavatore!
From the first puffs on this blend is richly smoky and leathery, with a intense salty and peppery spice and woodsy undertones. The Latakia plays some groovy notes, yet leaving room for the Perique to contribute its signature pepperiness, and for the Virginias to sport some mild sweetness as well as a whiff of freshness. Blowing the smoke out of your nose makes for a pleasant tingling sensation. The Cavendish seems to be unflavoured, as this blend is only very mildly sweet, but very creamy and buttery.
Very rich and intense aroma, without being too strong, I'd rate it medium-strength! Yet due to the blasts of flavours this isn't an All-Day-Smoke to my gusto - yet you may use it as such! An instant favorite.. this baby's got charme and character!
