The mildly nutty, earthy, woody, lightly sweet burley is a team player, and competes for attention with the very citrusy, grassy, lightly earthy Maryland and Virginia. At times, the burley does beat out the other tobaccos by a slim margin. The varietals are processed in the cavendish style. The strength and nic-hit are mild, while the taste level is a hair past that level. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a slightly fast pace with a mostly consistent, mildly sweet flavor. It doesn’t take much work to burn it to ashes. Hardly leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste and room note. An all day work and play smoke. Two and a half stars.
The main flavors are acidic, earthy, nutty, and woody like the Ready rubbed match, but without the chocolate flavor that I could taste in the RRM. I can't tell you which one it is, because I've never smoked Maryland leaf by itself, but the acidic, nutty Burley flavor is all over the blend.
