Sweet and mild, black Cavendish and good Virginias, Burley toastiness, and some Latakia give it a pleasing complexity. Burley and Virginia also give it a little touch of nicotine, probably around the medium mark in terms of strength. Burns cool, and very well, can usually do a full bowl without a single relight. An object lesson in blending, with the untopped Cavendish holding the whole smoke together. This was about the sweetest of the Wilkie non-aro blends that I have smoked; at first, I thought it was a bit too lightweight for my taste, especially as I love the incense-like complexity of Crystal Palace, but I am finding myself drawn to it more and more often. The second half of the bowl especially blends well, touches of that burley nuttiness, and a bit of the smoky latakia weaving in and out. HU, Peretti, and Wilke are really ruining me for the usual tinned suspects, as I've had a number of disappointments lately in the more commonly available tobaccos.

The soft mild-mannered character of this blend makes it uninteresting to me (two stars), but the ingredients are harmonious with one another and it burns well (three stars). I get brioche from the Virginia, a custard-like sweetness from the Cavendish, and a light touch of smokiness from the Latakia. It’s alright as a mid-morning smoke, but in this soft-focus Va-Bur style with Latakia I prefer Noggin’s Bald Headed Teacher. Don’t sit on this for too long as it fades fairly quickly in the jar. Also: not one of the best choices for leftovers as it takes on some bitterness; best to finish it in one session.
