The grassy, tart and tangy citrusy Virginia forms the base of the blend, but it’s no more than a supporting player. The nutty, earthy, woody, lightly molasses sweet and sharp burleys is more obvious, though it has plenty of support. The spicy, woody, earthy, herbal, vegetative, mildly floral, dry and buttery sweet Oriental/ Turkish compete with the burleys for attention, and often is the lead component. There’s a sprinkling of spicy, raisiny, plumy perique to add the spice content of the Orientals. The smoky, woody, earthy, lightly musty sweet Cyprian Latakia is far in the background. The unsweetened black cavendish provides a little brown sugar, and plays below the role of a condiment. The strength and taste level are medium. The nic-hit is a step past the center of mild to medium. It can bite the tongue of a fast puffer, and is tingly even when puffed slowly, though the spice content is partly responsible for that. Burns a little warm and clean at a reasonable pace with a sweet, spicy and savory, mostly consistent flavor that translates to the lingering after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl. Without the bite potential, it’d be an all day smoke as well as a three star blend. I give it three for the taste, but settled on two stars because of that bite.
