The Virginia offers a bit of grass and citrus with a touch of darker fruit. It forms the base of the blend. The smoky, very woody, earthy, sweet, lightly musty Cyprian Latakia takes a little of the lead. The fairly tingly spicy, plumy, lightly raisiny, earthy perique is an important condiment. The sugary black cavendish provides some smoothness. The strength is a step past the center of mild to medium, while the taste level falls just short of medium. The nic-hit is just past the mild mark. Won’t bite, and has few rough edges, and no harshness. Burns fairly cool, and very clean with a well balanced, consistent mild sweetness and more savory, spicy flavor from top to bottom. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a lingering, spicy campfire after taste and a slightly stronger room note. Can be an all day smoke.
