Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The cavendish style Virginias offer some citrus and floral grass, along with a light darker fruit and earth as the main components. The burleys provide a lot of nuttiness, earth, wood, and a pinch of spice. The woody, earthy, dry, floral, slightly buttery, barely spicy Turkish is just above being a condiment. The spicy, raisiny, plumy perique doesn’t show up much until the half way point, and is a background player. I can’t define the light, sweet topping, but it tones down the tobaccos just a mite, mostly acting as a smoothing agent. The strength doesn’t quite reach the center of mild to medium, though the taste just does pass it. The nic-hit is a step past the mild mark. Won’t bite or get harsh. It burns clean, fairly cool and a tad slow with a moderately consistent, mildly sweet and woody, savory, nuanced flavor from top to bottom. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day smoke.
