The nutty, woody, earthy, slightly floral, spicy, savory burleys also offer a sharp note, but little sweetness. They lead the grassy, tart and tangy citrusy Virginia, which is more of a secondary player. The unsweetened black cavendish provides some brown sugar as a condiment. The champagne topping has a little richness, and tones down the tobaccos just a little. The strength and nic-hit are just past the mild level. The taste level is a hair past the the center of mild to medium. Will bite if not sipped, and may nip the tongue even then. Burns warm and a little quickly with a very consistent flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a short lived after taste and room note. It gets two and a half stars for flavor, but the omnipresent bite potential reduces the overall rating to one star.
