The Cyprian latakia is smoky and woody, and is the main star of the blend. It's well complimented by the earthy, nutty, slightly sharp white burley. The burley is quality choice as is the lemon Virginia that adds an enjoyable tangy sweetness an a few blades of grass. The mild rum topping is assisted by a complimentary raisin/stewed fruit note or two as well, and does sublimate the tobaccos a little. The nic-hit is just shy of being mild to medium. Won't bite or get harsh. A colorful blend that's pretty to look at, burns cool and clean at a moderate pace, and is complex with a multiplicity of flavors that don't crowd each other out. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant after taste, and nearly is an all day smoke. Smoking it in a pipe with a wide bowl will enhance the experience, but any pipe will work for this mixture.
