I smoked this back in the 80s and the cognac was the best flavor out of all of them. I was mad when they stopped exporting this !

It burned hot as most BR products did in those days, but I thought it also had a little more flavor than some of the other BR products. The cognac taste was a little bitey, but had a decent mild flavor. Sometimes, I did get a taste of Virginia when I smoked it, something not always true of their mixtures. I wasn't crazy about the blend, but I must say I bought it a number of times during the 1970s, and thought it better than most of the other BR blends. Not a great smoke, but not a bad one either. Wonder what it'd be like if made today?
