A medium English with the smokey Cyprian latakia taking the lead. The Virginia is a grassy, mildly sweet back up to the lightly nutty, lightly sweet burleys, while the perique provides a very minor spice note. There’s also a buttery, sour woodsy, musty flavor from the Smyrna which is obvious in nearly every puff. The sweetness in the mixture is less than I’ve indicated as there’s some dryness to the smoke. It has enough complexity to keep your interest and enough strength to satisfy your craving for blends in this genre.
