The rather floral, herbal, woody, buttery sweet and lightly sour, earthy, moderately spicy Oriental takes a little of the lead. The very nutty, earthy, woody, toasty sweet burley plays an important support role. The grassy, citrusy Virginia is between being a secondary player and a condiment. The smoky, woody, musty sweet Cyprian latakia is almost a condiment, and the flavor push it provides rounds out the experience. The strength is mild while the taste is a step or so past mild. The nic-hit is mild. No chance of bite or harshness, and has no rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with well balanced, nuanced, consistent taste that is a little richer than expected given the strength level. Hardly leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste. Those looking for a stronger, more Oriental forward blend may find this to be a little light, but not only is this an all day smoke, it is a good starting point for the novice wondering what Orientals can do in a blend without being overwhelmed by their presence. Three and a half stars.
