The nutty, molasses and sugary sweet, earthy, woody Tennessee burley has some richness and is the lead component, but barely so. The brown sugary, lightly toasty black cavendish is a close second. The grassy, citrusy, lightly dark fruity and earthy Virginia is a secondary player. The smoky, woody, sweet Cyprian latakia is just above being a condiment. The strength is just past the mild level, while the taste is a tad stronger. The nic-hit is mild. No chance of bite or harshness, and has no roughness. Well balanced, it burns cool and clean at a slightly more than moderate pace with a very consistent flavor from start to finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day, comfortable smoke.

I have had great luck with Wilke tobacco. Smoked at least 4 blends(Commander,Pipemakers Choice, Vermont Maple Cavendish, Chocolate) and all have one thing in common; quality!

Commander is a Black Cavendish, Burley, Virginia, Latakia blend that smokes cool, dry & flavorable without bite regardless of how you puff. Every tobacco in this blend will show itself but it's the Latakia that shines. Toasty and great on a October day.

Leaves the bowl dry, burns to the bottom with no dottle. Needs no drying time, moisture is spot-on. Only wish Wilke was sold in tins.

As our friends across the pond will say, "Have a go with this one!"
