The Philip Morris version was rather soapy and even more perfumey with a strong anise/licorice topping. While it lingered to the end, it became less intense by the half way point, and a nutty burley became more prominent, though still a bit sublimated. The black and gold cavendish were noticeable in trace amounts; a drop of honey and a hint of vanilla. The Virginia notes were few and far between, except for a mild grassiness. The citrus sweetness it held was mostly disguised. There was a light maple flavor here and there. The House of Windsor version had a touch more tobacco taste, and a shade or two less intense toppings. The HoW burned pretty warm and rough with little moisture while the PM production was a little smoother, cooler smoke. Both versions needed a slow smoking cadence, though I experienced no bite when puffed at a moderate pace. Both had a slightly more than mild nic-hit. This product required minimum relights, and left little moisture in the bowl. The after taste lingered a bit. The room note was much like what you’d get if an overly perfumed matron stood next to you while she chewed on a heavily flavored stick of licorice. Not an all day smoke.
