The very nutty, earthy, woody, lightly spicy, molasses sweet burleys are the star components. The bright Virginia provides some tangy citrus, a lot of grass and hay, along with light lemon, a touch of floral, and a couple drops of honey in a support role. The sugar from the unsweetened black cavendish helps smooth out the tobaccos. The topping appears to be a fruity red wine. It sublimates the varietals to a moderate extent without drowning them out. The strength is in the center of mild to medium, while the taste misses the medium mark by a rung or two. The nic-hit crosses the mild threshold by a couple of steps. Despite what the pouch claims, it has bite potential and burns a little warm at a slightly fast pace. I recommend a sipping cadence. The flavor is very consistent from start to finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering after taste and room note. An all day smoke. Three and a half stars for the taste.
