Notes: Middleton's Wine Berry was a unique blend of burley, Virginia and black cavendish with a wonderful berry note added for mellow flavor and great aroma. This is a match to that discontinued blend.

In both the original and the Match, the deeply rich raspberry, red wine and strawberry (?) flavors dominates the tobacco. It reminds me of Amphora Red, a little more so in the original than the Match. There a definite floralness in the topping of the original that reminds me of the floral note in Amphora Red, but it's a little stronger there, and isn’t present in the Match. Some burley peeks out from the topping every so often (especially after the mid-point). There's a slight suggestion of vanilla from the black cavendish in both. Can’t really say I notice the Virginia much in either production, except for a little grassiness. In the Match, the tobacco is a little more obvious toward the finish, but the toppings make it to the last puff without a hint of chemicals. The original does have a light chemical, syrupy taste that shows up occasionally. Has very little nicotine and won't bite. Both burn cool (the Match a little more so) with very little moisture in the bowl, few relights, and a very pleasant after taste. An all day smoke.

I rated the original at two stars. This is two and a half stars.
