The very earthy, nutty, woody, smoky, minimally cigar-like, mildly cocoa sweet seven year old burley is the lead component. The earthy, grassy, woody, lightly citrusy and dark fruity Virginia also sports a hint of the floral. The strength and taste level start out as medium, but gather potency by the half way mark, and both become a step or so past the medium level. The nic-hit is medium. Won’t bite, but has a mild rough edge at times. A little dry tasting, not very sweet, but filling, and burns fairly cool and very clean at a slightly fast pace with a consistent, natural, hearty, savory flavor from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering after taste. Can be an all day smoke for the experienced smoker.
A mixture that smokes very well and is very balanced. My taste for tobacco is based on Virginia, and although Burley is not my favorite, in this blend the sweet aromas of Virginia predominate. As the smoke progresses, Burley begins to predominate, gaining in bitterness. The load burns at a good rate and lasts for a short time, leaving no moisture in the bowl. Nice work from the master mixer!
