The grassy, citrusy Virginia is the base of the blend, and has a little dullness. The nutty, earthy molasses sweet burley is a supporting player, and not forceful in any way. The unsweetened black cavendish adds some brown sugar smoothness. The Cyprian latakia is lightly smoky and woody sweet, and does just a little more than underscore the experience. I’m not sure what the sweet, very lightly creamy topping is, but I get something almost vanilla-like, and it tones down the tobaccos a little. The nic-hit is very mild. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent flavor. leaves some moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. Can be an all day English aromatic smoke. Two and a half stars.
