There's several burleys in this blend, which comprises most of what you will taste. There is an uncased burley as well. They offer molasses, earth, nuts, and a sharp note. The smokey, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is a moderate addition. The Virginia is slightly citrusy and grassy, and acts mainly as the base for the other ingredients. There's not much of it here. The tobaccos are small broken cut flakes with a little ribbon cut. Has a mild nic-hit, and won't bite or get harsh. It is fairly dry fresh out of the tin, and burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a consistent flavor. Needs few relights, and leaves little moisture in the bowl. Has a pleasant after taste. A fairly comfortable all day smoke for those looking for a little latakia and a little Virginia with their burleys.
