Opening the tin, the scent is fruity, wine-ish, with some hay lingering in the background. The leaf is dotted with a few flecks of Black Cavendish, otherwise this is pure VA, with maybe a hint of a citrus sauce. The slices rub out easily. Lighting takes a single match for me.
The flavour is sweet, with a touch of dark bread in the background. The sidestream also has a bit of spiciness. Little maintenance is needed, and I end up with practically no dottle. There is a lingering, comfortable sweet aftertaste.
Where I am, this blend is somewhat pricey, but I find it well worth the money.
