Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The nutty, woody, earthy burley has a light molasses note. Competing for attention is the grassy, citrusy Virginia. The sugary black cavendish is just above being a condiment. The vanilla has a little richness as does what I perceive to be a fruity brandy-like fermented topping. I notice that the Match version used marshmallow and whiskey, and perhaps a little whisky is here, but not marshallow. The strength is just past the mild level, while the taste is just shy of the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is mild. Won't bite, but may tingle the tongue if puffed fast. Burns a tad warm, but clean at a slightly fast pace with a very consistent flavor all the way to the finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a lightly lingering, pleasant after taste and room note. An all day smoke that's as close to a three star rating as can be without being a three star blend, so I settled for two stars.

The Match is fairly close to this, and I gave that two stars as well.
