The lead component is the very smoky, earthy, woody, wine-like, leathery, lightly musty Syrian latakia. The woody, earthy, mildly floral, lightly spicy, dry, and barely sweet Turkish is a supporting player. The mildly nutty, very earthy, woody, lightly floral, barely sweet burley is the next obvious varietal. The grassy, lightly citrusy, earthy Virginia just rises above the condimental level. The strength and nic-hit are just past the center of mild to medium. The taste level barely reaches the medium mark. Won’t bite, or get harsh. Burns slightly warm and clean with a mostly dry, floral savory flavor from top to bottom. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a short lived after taste. Can be an all day smoke.
