The Virginias provide some grass and citrus, a little wood, and dark fruit as the base of the blend, but take a back seat to the other components. The smoky, woody, musty, earthy, sweet Cyprian Latakia takes the lead. The very peppery, raisiny, plummy, mildly stewed fruity, tongue tingly perique is a supporting player. The strength is medium and the taste level is just past that level chiefly due to the amount of the strong perique. The nic-hit is a step past the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite, but needs to be sipped a little as the savory pepper is potent. Burns clean, and slightly warm at a reasonable pace with a mostly consistent, rich flavor. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. The after taste lingers a bit. Not an all day smoke.
