The wine-like, musty, earthy, woody Syrian latakia is the lead component, and is ably assisted by the other components. In an important support role is the creamy, earthy, woody, mildly spicy, leathery, floral Dominican Andullo. The earthy, woody, nutty, lightly sweet burley is the third most important varietal present. The grassy, earthy, citrusy Virginia takes a back seat in the this blend, though you will know it’s here. The strength is a step or two past the medium threshold, while the taste is in the middle of medium to full. The nic-hit is close to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns clean and cool and slightly fast with a mostly consistent, richly deep campfire flavor with nuance. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs few relights. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste and stronger room note. Not an all day smoke. Three and a half stars out of four.
