Notes: An incredible combination of the finest smoky Cyprian latakia combined with a rich dark Virginia of legendary quality and spicy Oriental components topped off with a delicate but firm portion of pure 100% Louisiana perique to create an English style blend.

The Virginias provide some grass, citrus, dark fruit and earth as the base of the blend, though they are supporting players. The floral, woody, buttery sweet, spicy, dry, and earthy Orientals are a tad more obvious than the Virginias. The smoky, woody, musty, sweet Cyprian latakia almost plays at the same level as the Orientals. The spicy, raisiny, plumy perique is a condiment. The taste level is a couple steps past medium. The nic-hit is a a little closer to medium than it is to mild. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very well balanced, nuanced and consistently rich, lush flavor from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste. Not quite an all day smoke, though veteran smokers will consider it to be repeatable.
