This is a full-strength blend comprised of three Burley variants with a Virginia backing for sweetness and a condiment amount of Smyrna Oriental and Perique to give it depth and body. A very small amount of honey and vanilla Cavendish are added to the blend to provide a sweet top note. This is for lover's of traditional American blends and full strength and flavor.

Tried this and some of the other Fusion Lab blends on a whim when ordering a few other things from pipesandcigars.com. This certainly is a tasty and smooth Burley blend, gaining a bit of volume from the Perique and Oriental while keeping some background sweetness, presumably through the Virginias mentioned in the description, though not listed on the "Contents"??!?
The aromatic qualities here are extremely subdued, but pleasant when they poke through. This doesn't tend to bite, but can dry your mouth out slightly, so keep a beverage handy.
Strength is just right for an all-day smoke, IMO.
Overall good stuff - just what the Dr. ordered.
