Average ribbon-cut VaBur + Cav is a guess plus a perfect aroma that grows into a long smoking fragrance bouquet. Oh Ye, unlock the secret of these blends. After the char, even unlit, the fragrance on top of the bowl is exceptional, and continues when lit to the end. Relight pauses let the nose get some more good waft where there was no smoke to be seen. Every month this blender sends me his samples and what a privilege it is to determine which is best. Exceed sipping-the-embers-pace at your peril. An exceptional blend and quality of tobacco. Roasty, mellow, tasty, satisfying. 4 Star. (The room note rates high according to wife – I smoked this bowl atop my horse as I chatted with friends on the ground, my one leg wrapped around the saddle horn, the other in the stirrup – yep, smoked my pipe to the fullest of enjoyment after roping steers).
