The Virginia was grassy with some citrus and formed the base of the blend. The burley was toasty and nutty sweet with a drop of molasses as a second lead. The perique was a minor component, offering light spice and raisin. The Cyprian latakia provided a very mild smokey, woody push. The Kentucky was also present in a small amount, lightly woody and nutty. The fruit and rum toppings were sweet, and mildly applied, so it tended to work with the tobaccos rather than to sublimate them. The rum was barely noticeable. The nic-hit was mild. Wouldn't bite. Burned smooth and clean at a moderate pace with few relights, and left little moisture in the bowl. Was an all day smoke, which as many people know, a favorite of Albert Einstein.

This is another Virginia/Burley/Latakia/Perique mixture that circled the bases for me. I never tasted the Perique and the Latakia raised its head just once in awhile. There is a substantial top coating in this stuff, and it smelled and tasted very nice indeed. Revelation is regarded as the blend of choice by Albert Einstein. I think his palate also had a high IQ and maybe smoking this blend will raise yours! This stuff is light on the palate, tasty, nicotine laden and doesn't bite a bit. What's not to like?
