The various sourced matured, stoved, and dark African Virginias provide a lot of citrus, tangy dark fruit, some fermented stewed fruit, a lot of earth and wood, some hay, grass and sugar along with light floral and apricot notes. The sweet, lightly leathery and dirty, mildly peppery, cedary, tea-like, grassy and floral vegetative candela is in a secondary role, rising above the percentage used in this blend. The spicy, raisiny, plumy, figgy perique is also in a secondary position, though it’s a rung or two behind the candela. The strength is medium, while the nic-hit is a step behind that mark. The taste just passes the medium level. Won’t bite or get harsh, but it does have a light rough edge. Burns clean and fairly cool at a moderate rate with a mostly consistent sweet and savory flavor from first puff to last. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering sweet, slightly sour camp fire after taste. Not quite an all day smoke, but it is repeatable. Three and a half stars out of four.
