The woody, earthy, floral, herbal, vegetative, lightly spicy yenidje has a little sweetness along with some dry sourness. It is the dominant tobacco, and also sports a little of the “unflavored soda note” I often associate with yenidje. The brown sugary black cavendish is an important supporting player that offers some smoothness. I also sense a light vanilla topping. Together, it all creates a well balanced, very consistent, mildly sour, savory, very floral sweetness from start to finish. The strength and nic-hit are in-between the center of mild to medium. The taste level is medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, and barely has any roughness. Burns fairly cool and very clean at a moderate pace. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran, but it has just enough of a flavor punch that those not experienced with yenidje may consider it to be an occasional venture during their day. I recommend a small to medium bowl for this one. Three and a half stars out of four.
