The very hay-like, grassy and citrusy, lightly dark fruity, woody and earthy Virginias also sport acidic, smoky, honey, and floral notes. The rich, woody grappa is a little more obvious than the natural sugar topping. Both work to enhance, compliment, and moderately sublimate the Virginias, although there is a touch of distracting alcohol present. The strength and nic-hit are a little closer to medium than it is to mild. The taste level just reaches the medium mark. It doesn’t quite venture into bite territory, but I do recommend a slow puffing cadence as the acidic quality of the tobaccos is more noticeable if you go hard at it. Burns a tad warm, but clean, at a slightly slow pace with a very consistent sweet and woody, savory flavor that translates to the lingering after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs a little more than an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke. Should benefit from some aging.
