The nutty, earthy, woody, molasses sweet burley takes the lead, and has a slight spice hit. The sugary black cavendish is right on the heels of the burley in terms of effect. The grassy citrusy Virginia is a condiment. The vanilla topping has a light richness, but also a few distracting syrupy sour notes. In the background is a few drops of caramel and hickory. The toppings fairly sublimate the tobaccos, but you will notice the varietals. The strength and nic-hit are just past mild, while the taste is just past the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh. May need a touch of dry time. Burns fairly cool and very clean at a slightly slow pace with a mostly consistent flavor from start to finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires a few relights. The lasting after taste is marred by the sour syrup. An all day smoke.
