Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant

The Virginias are grassy with a fair amount of citrus, and a little earth, dark fruit, and a hint of wood as the main component. The smoky, woody, earthy, sweet, lightly musty Cyprian Latakia is a condiment, and it is more obvious from time to time. The topping appears to be rum, though at the start, I noticed a touch of wine that dissipates by the time you finish the first quarter of the bowl. The rum sublimates the tobaccos to a mild to moderate extent, and though it weakens a little by the half way point, you’ll always have a sense of it. The strength and taste levels are in the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is just past the mild threshold. Won’t bite or get harsh, but can warm the tongue a little if puffed fast. Burns clean at a moderate pace with a little richness in flavor. Leaves little dampness in the pipe, and requires an average number of relights. Has a slightly lingering pleasant after taste and room note. An all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
