May 10, 2017 Mild to Medium Very Mild Medium Pleasant
The grassy, citrusy Virginia and the tangy dark fruity, earthy red Virginia formed the base of the blend. The latter may be responsible for a touch of stewed fruit. The dry, buttery sweet, woody, spicy, mildly floral Orientals were the star components by a couple of steps. The wine-like, smoky, woody Syrian latakia was a condiment. The unsweetened black cavendish offered a light sugar note. I believe a couple pinches of Maryland, too, were present, and would help account for a little of the sweetness. I’m sure that the lightly applied topping was bourbon, which didn’t tone down the tobaccos much at all. There was a very mild fermented quality to the product, which I suspect comes from the age of this tin, which was tax stamped 1937, and smoked by me the second it was opened. The nic-hit was just past mild. The strength level was a little closer to medium than it was to mild. No chance of bite or harshness to be found here. Burned cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent, fairly smooth, rich and complex flavor from start to finish. Barely left any dampness in the bowl. Required an average number of relights. Had a very pleasant, lightly lingering after taste. Was an all day smoke.
