The smoky, woody, earthy, musty, sweet Cyprian Latakia may be the lead component, but it gets plenty of support from the other tobaccos. The very nutty, earthy, woody, slightly spicy, molasses sweet burley sits in the second slot in the proceedings. The grassy, citrusy, lightly dark fruity, woody Virginia is in third place. The effect of the sugary black cavendish is very obvious as it tamps down many of the potential rough edges that Latakia can supply. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium, while the taste almost reaches the medium mark. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a moderate rate with a very consistent sweet and savory, nutty campfire flavor that also translates to the lightly lingering after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An all day smoke with some depth and a little complexity.

Mild to Medium None Detected Mild to Medium Pleasant

Mild-to-medium flavorful English with a pointed but not obtuse, bulbous Latakian nose. VA, burley, light sprinkling of perique. Serious, well-mannered in an old-fashioned way; not sweet. Well repeatable throughout the day.
