Slightly edited from Synjeco's website: This blend tastes like a good spicy, robust cigar of a high quality. The smell is 100% natural, and the taste starts as a bit bitter and then [carries] you into a host of intriguing smoking dimensions. As it is cut very fine, it burns rather fast, though [evenly]. People who roll their own could find a treasure in this blend.

I'm not sure why this is called Maryland #333, because it's obvious more than Maryland tobacco is present. There's a spice note that reminds me of the kind in MacBaren Virginia #1, without the chance of bite. I suspect that the spice note may come from a pinch of Oriental, though that component is not listed. It's the same spice note in Virginia No. 444, and Oriental is listed as a component there. The Virginia is mildly grassy with some earth and a bit of citrus with the barest hint of honey, though I only sporadically notice the latter. I suppose the Maryland, which often adds little to the flavor of a blend, is present to smooth the Virginia out. The burley is nutty and toasty in a supporting role. The cut is short ribbon, and the tobacco colors are medium bright with some brown. Needs a little hydration, burns well, but cool. I recommend puffing at a moderate rate for best effect, though it doesn't bite. Could be used as RYO, but I consider that to be waste of high quality tobaccos in this case. An all day smoke with a little body, and a shade over mild nic-hit. Leaves no moisture in the bowl, and has a consistent flavor with a nice after taste. Hardly needs a relight.
