Been smoking this for quite some time and it remains a great alternative in and out of my rotation. There is a subtle sweet undertone as well as a subtle soft raspberry like experience - but not as prominent and dominant as it smells when opening. More like a subtle flavor softened by buttery sugar/honey and a slight hint of vanilla. The flavor does not always remain steady and dominate as other flavors peak through in and out as does the sweet tones - something I actually enjoy about this blend. Maybe the little "magic" that's in the description. There are nutty undertones from time to time and I pick up a slight almond/marzipan type nuance as well and maybe even a hint of cardamom. Reminds me of an outstanding sugar coated short bread/linzer holiday cookie with berry/currant lIke notes from time to time. This smoke is best with a slow and soft cadence. You don't want to smoke it like a chimney if you truly want to enjoy it's variation and sweet notes. If you like surprises, nuance, and trying to figure out what's in a blend, there's plenty of enjoyment to be had with Wenceslas.

This comes around once a year after thanksgiving up until Christmas time or at least until they run out and is a delightful mixture to consider for holiday smoking. The room note is amazing and the women folk will appreciate it, and the taste is great. It really tastes like raspberry or blueberry cobler with some heavy whip cream.
