Light colored small ribbons with a bag aroma of latakia and... dirt. Yes, dirt. It smelled a lot like dry earth. The small cut made for very easy loading and I don't think I ever had to relight once I got it going.

The previous Peretti blend I reviewed had its Virginias pretty obviously sourced from McClellands. The Virginias here were just as obviously from someone else. They were as lacking in character as any Virginias I've ever tasted, similar to the Sutliff Court of St James I smoked not long ago. No sweetness, no tang, no spiciness, no anything. No body, either, or I might have thought it was burley in the mix... a very light burley. The base of this was an extremely bland cigarette taste with a sprinkling of latakia on top. the latakia saved this from a single star, but didn't offer enough to elevate this one beyond mediocre. On the other hand, this has promise as a blender and might be useful to tone down too heavily flavored blends. So two stars for that reason.
