This mixture is produced from the best Virginia tobacco types of the world in which a pinch Kentucky and a little Burley are then added from the best provenances. Before the tobacco is pressed and cut, it is provided with a special flavor which rounds off the wonderful taste.

Medium Mild Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The first enjoyable thing about this blend is its appearance: it's a flake, in little, almost square slices and the tobaccos are clearly separated: a light stripe in the middle of two darker ones, really unique! The smell reminds of dried fruits, but it's unobtrusive and pleasant. The small flakes are easy to rub, but the packing is easy even if you use a traditional flake packing; just pay attention to give it some air before, because, although not really moist, the tobacco is very greasy, oily.

At the match it's easy to light up, but it can be biting if you aren't used to aromatics, but then it doesn't create any problem of heat or moisture if puffed slowly. The flavour keeps up all way down but, as when you smell it, is unobtrusive. The other main fragrance is the Virginia, sweet and strong enough to satisfy and suit an after lunch smoke, while the kentucky smoothens it all and helps keeping the heat at relatively low levels.

Finally, the smoke proceeds evenly without notable peaks, the flavour of both tobaccos and casing is still present at the end of the bowl. This is a recommended blend for the aromatic lover, but also a nice change of pace for English blends fans.

A good alternative for the socalled "Bengal Slices".

The apperance of the tobacco is, as told before very nice. A VA Flake in the Middle, with two dark (Burley/Kentucky) stripes to the left and right sorrounding it.

Fresh from the Tin it wasnt really my taste, but after letting it rest for about 2 month imho it gained a lot of taste and goodness. You can clearly taste the Kentucky/Burleys, which match very good to the VA and the slight flavouring. I'd guess the flavouring is somewhat "Honey-ish", but its very decent and almost not to be found. It just supports the good tobacco taste, makes it a bit sweeter and joyfuller.
