The burleys provide a bit of nuttiness, wood, earth, some molasses, and hints of floral, spice, and cocoa. They dominate the blend. The toasty aromatic black cavendish has a light touch of vanilla along with a little sugar and and a toasty quality. The strength is mild, while the taste and nic-hit are a step past that level. Won’t bite, but it does have a small rough edge here and there, which aged burleys often do. Burns cool and clean at slightly less than a moderate pace with very consistent flavor all the way to the finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasantly, short lived after taste. An easy dealt with all day smoke.

Well, Carole has reintroduced yet another of the 190 series. This blend will show you the parentage of No. 193 very clearly. If you had No. 193, and wanted something a bit simpler, this is it. This is very much like 193, sans Perique and Latakia.

The Burley in this is very good, but is milder than what is in Nut Brown Burley. The Cavendish is apparently toasted, fermented, and sweetened a bit. It is not cloying however, and burns very cool and dry.

I love the signature, baking spice scent of the Wilke blends. They are wonderful, especially with a cup of coffee. This is a very friendly blend well suited for beginners, and lovers of classic Burley mixtures. For lovers of full automatics, this could make a nice, more natural change of pace. For the lovers of straight tobacco blends, this could make a pleasant, mildly sweet diversion. I can certainly see more of this one in my future. A top quality, classic blend.
