The sweet yellow and bright Virginias provide quite a lot of citrus (a little tart and fairly tangy) with some grass, a little earth, a couple drops of honey, and a hint of spice. The stoved red Virginia offers some tangy dark fruit, a small measure of sugar and bread, and a bit of earth and wood as a supporting player. The dry, floral, woody, earthy, mildly sour, slightly buttery sweet Turkish also has a couple pinches of spice as this varietal adds a little body and depth. The strength is in the center of mild to medium, while the taste is a step or so below the medium threshold. The nic-hit is a rung below the strength level. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool, clean, and little slow as crumble makes will do. The flavor is very consistent with some sweetness and a touch of savoriness that translates to the short lived after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs some relights. Can be an all day smoke.
