Samuel Gawith - Almond.
I don't think this contains only Virginia, it seems to be a mixture of Virginia and Burley with a tiny amount of Black Cavendish. It tastes only slightly aromatic, not exactly 'cased'; I'd guess that any stickiness would be absent from an almond topping though. The flavour from the tobaccos' are nice, but what takes the edge off it for me is tongue bite; it only takes slight force to cause quite a large dose. As well as the bite, it can burn warm; even and consistent, yes, but a bit too warm.
The nicotine's below medium, not lot's below, but mild to medium. The best feature with this is the room-note, it's very enjoyable.
On taste alone this scores four stars, but considering all factors I feel three is a good result.
