The nutty, earthy, woody toasty dry burley is a team player that allows the other components to have their say, even though there’s more of it in this blend by percentage than the other varietals. The woody, earthy, musty, smoky, mildly sweet Cyprian Latakia plays a supporting role. The fairly tingly, spicy, plumy perique takes the third position in the mix. The grassy, mildly citrusy Virginia flake just rises above being a condiment. The strength and taste levels are a step past the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is a hair below that center. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns fairly cool and very clean at a reasonable pace with a mildly smoky, savory and lightly sweet and spicy, consistent flavor from top to bottom. Hardly leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke.
