The lightly grassy, citrusy, slightly hay-like, bready, gently floral golden brown Virginia is the lead component, and also sports the slightest hint of honey possible. The dark fruity, very earthy dark Virginia is a tad more than a condiment, and has a touch of fermentation. In the background is a small portion of a woody, lightly spicy, dry, earthy tobacco that tastes like an Oriental. The strength is a step or two past the mild level, and the taste is in the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is mild. Won’t bite or get harsh even when pushed, and has a very consistent, comfortable smooth sweetness, without being overly sweet. The tobacco is lightly moist, and the coins easily break apart to suit your preference. There’s some loose cut in the mix as well. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace, and easily burns to ash. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires just a few more than an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste and room note. By design, it’s a milder Virginia blend with a twist than some others on the market, and though it’s not complex, it makes for a easy going all day smoke. In the category of mild Virginias, it gets four stars.
