The dark fired Kentucky provides some earth, wood, floralness, vegetation, spice, sourness and mild barbecue as the lead component. The nutty, woody, earthy, toasty burleys are a supporting player. The burleys are nutty, woody, earthy, toasty burleys as an important supporting player. The bright Virginia produces some tart and tangy citrus, vegetative grass, bread, sugar, floralness, mild sour lemon, honey and spice in the third slot. The toasty black cavendish is a flavor carrier for the strong, very tartly sweet cherries and whiskey which have a distracting syrupiness. They sublimate the tobaccos to a fair degree without drowning them out. The strength is a step past the medium threshold. The taste is a notch past that mark. The nic-hit is almost medium. The spice content is a little tingly, so I recommend a sipping pace. Won’t get harsh. Has a few rough edges. Deep rich, it burns clean and a tad warm with a very consistent fruity, whiskey, floral, mildly nutty, spicy, lightly sour flavor that extends the pleasantly lingering after taste. The room note is a tad stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a couple relights over the average number. Not an all day smoke, but it is repeatable. Will ghost a briar, and a meer. Three stars for the flavor reduced to two due to the potential for tongue bite and the syrup notes from the toppings.

The original McCormick blend had Orientals instead of DFK.
