The very smoky, woody, musty sweet Cyprian latakia is the star component, and ventures toward lat-bomb with some nuances. The fermented sugary sweet, leathery, woody, lightly floral, creamy maduro cigar leaf is almost a secondary player. The spicy, raisiny, plumy perique is obvious every puff, and plays just below level of the maduro leaf. The grassy, fairly citrusy Virginia is almost a condiment; more often lurking in the background. The strength is in the center of medium to strong, while the taste is full. The nic-hit is almost medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, and has no roughness. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with deeply rich and very consistent sweet and savory flavor that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl and requires an average number of relights. Not an all day smoke, but you may find you need it more than once a day.
