Bright yellow Virginia, ripened in the African sun with brown burley and black cavendish. The flavour of fully ripe wild fruits from the Marula tree specifies the character of this tobacco and accomplishes the smoke pleasure.

Notes: Planta's Tobacco of the Year for 2012.

Mild to Medium Medium to Strong Medium Very Pleasant

The rather tangy lemon Virginias are citrusy with a light grassiness, and are the lead component. The nutty, earthy, molasses sweet brown burley is a supporting player with a pinch or two of spice. The unsweetened black cavendish offers some brown sugar. The fruity sweet marula topping dominates the tobaccos, and a light clove-like, peppery spice is added as well. The strength is just shy of the center of mild to medium, while the taste is medium. The nic-hit is just past mild. The spice is tingly enough to cause tongue bite if puffed fast. Burns clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent flavor, and leaves little dampness in the bowl. Needs an average number of relights. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste. Not quite an all day smoke.
