McGahey - Brandy and Virginia.
This is quite a good blend, it's nothing extraordinary, but for what it is it's a good enough smoke.
The smoke isn't heavily cased, slightly embellished but not the sort of taste that I'd label 'Cased'. Rather than the topping seeming like a steadfast brandy one, it's more of a nebulous alcoholic flavour; this isn't too bad a thing, just don't expect a clear taste of cognac!
Although the topping's pretty mild, it can bite; it doesn't take a huge blast either, an average puff force causes this so I sip it delicately.
The tobacco flavour seems almost 'plain'; again, this isn't a bad thing, just don't expect a deep flavour of tobacco.
This is alright; not brilliant, not loathsome, but alright!
