|The discription of Mallard is a dark Virginia mixture aged in cake form, than spun out into easily packagable ribbons. The mixture is ready for your smoking enjoyment. A smooth and mild Virginia mixture.
This reminds me of some of the McClelland Virginia Blends when first lighting it up.
The first portion of the bowl was like a very mellow sweet Virginia that required very little attention.
Towards the middle of the bowl the Virginia presents itself with a little more taste, although, a little more attention is needed at this point with some tamping.
Getting towards the bottom of the bowl I tasted a little sweetness from the Virginia yet not overwhelming. The mildness of the blend seemed as though it presented itself with a little more robust in the flavor.
I did not notice any tongue bite or harshness from Mallard as it is a mild Virginia Blend.
