Every year when the cherry trees blossom in Washington, DC, it's an event. People flock from all over to see the trees in full bloom. As a tribute to that event, we bring you Russ' Monthly Blend - Nation's Capital. This is a rich, sweet black Cavendish with a smooth black cherry flavor, enhanced by a rich, caramelly vanilla. The room note is amazing, and the flavor has an incredible dessert-like quality. If you're looking for a blend that's unapologetically aromatic, you've found it with Nation's Capital.

There may be some vanilla from the black cavendish, but I think it’s unsweetened except for a brown sugariness. The black cherry topping dominates, and is aided and abetted by a mild caramel vanilla as a secondary supporter. No chemical notes to be found. Has virtually no nicotine. A moist tobacco, but needs no dry time as it burns at a reasonable pace, cool, clean, creamy smooth with a rich, consistent flavor from start to finish. Won’t bite even if pushed. leaves a little moisture in the bowl, but no goop or dottle. Has a very pleasant after taste and room note. A very easy going all day smoke that won’t burn you out in repeat performances.

This tobacco is absolutely delicious. You couldn’t make it bite if you tried. Room note is perfect. Did require one relight. Unapologetically aromatic, but not overpowering. Just a perfect tobacco all around.
