The Virginia provides some grass and tart and tangy citrus. The sugary black cavendish does as stated. The vanilla topping rules the day here with some caramel in the mix. The tobaccos are greatly muted. The strength is mild, while the taste is a couple of steps past that mark. Hardly has any nicotine. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at moderate pace with a very consistent sweet flavor from top to bottom. Leaves some moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has pleasant, short live after taste and room note. An all day smoke.
Reviewing King Street Coffee & Tobacco Emporium is really a throwback to days long gone. I grew up in the area and whenever I'm back there I try to get by and enjoy some smoke while also picking up some tobacco. Almost heaven has a really pleasant tin and room note. You can definitely smell and taste caramel and vanilla flavoring. It's a pretty mild smoke and would definitely lend itself to being an all day smoke. Once lit, relights were minimal and the smoke was a nice, fragrant, white and thick. The only negative was it tends to bite a lil at the very end. Overall definitely a blend worth checking out if you're ever in that area.
