The Virginia is grassy and tangy, citrus sweet with a few drops of honey, and forms the base of the flake. The nutty, molasses sweet burley has some earth, and plays a support role. Both have been processed in the cavendish style, so the aforementioned aspects are muted a little. The woody, dry Turkish is in the background, and not at all forceful. I’m not sure about the topping, but it’s sweet, sort of sugary and does sublimate the tobaccos a little. Has a mild nic-hit. Needs to be smoked slow, or you risk a little tongue bite, and a harsh note or two. Burns clean and a little slow with a fairly consistent flavor. Needs a little moisture in the bowl, and needs some relights, as flakes tend to do. The after taste has a slightly bitter note. Can be an all day smoke. As this is a Consolidated blend, this is a repeat of that review.

It's been several years since I sampled this blend and there have been many others in between. Although the name sounded enticing and it was a nicely prepared flake in the Danish Cavendish tradition, I well remember that it reminded me of smoking a flamethrower.
