Medium Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The light Virginia has a tangy citrus flavor with a little grass, and slight earth notes. The burley is a little nutty with a slight molasses hit in a support role. The Syrian latakia is a noticeable, but minor player that adds a light smokey push, while the perique offers a mild presence of plum and spice at a slightly higher level than the latakia. The topping is like honey and fruit. The nic-hit is just past the mild level. No chance of bite or harshness. The tobacco is ribbon and coin cut, packs and burns with ease, producing a cool, creamy sweet and lightly spicy smoke with a consistent flavor. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a very pleasant after taste. Not quite an all day smoke.

I found this to be a light bodied English blend. It was not very much to my liking, but I would not hold it against the blend or blender as light bodied englishes seldom excite me. I do think it was made with quality leaf and I know several people who really enjoy this one. It reminded me of my experience with SPC Mississippi River. I think if you are someone who likes that type of blend, you will really enjoy this.

Myself, I really prefer Strang to this and due to the expense and hassle that it would take for me to get more, I will not likely be ordering anymore of the number 8. Strang, on the other hand, is very much worth the effort.
