Ebony from the TC Collection is a nice everyday smoke with white burley and black cavendish with a touch of Latakia.

The dry, nutty, earthy, very woody, mildly sharp, lightly sour and spicy white burley takes a little of the lead. The toasty, mildly sugary unsweetened black cavendish is a supporting player, toning down some, but not all of the roughness. The smoky, woody, earthy, musty, sweet Cyprian Latakia is a secondary player that plays a little higher than the percentage in the mix. The strength is a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. That taste falls a hair short of the medium threshold. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite, but I do recommend a slow puffing cadence due to the amount of white burley. Burns fairly cool and very clean, and tad fast with a mostly consistent, savory and moderately sweet, campfire flavor from top to bottom. Hardly leaves any moisture in the bowl, and requires only a few relights. Has a lightly lingering after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran smoker, and is repeatable for the less experienced. Reminds me a little of a less sweeter, lighter version of Barking Dog. Three and a half stars.

I love Aged Burley Flake and Ready Rubbed Match. Chocolate flavored... Ah, the Burley I love. Relatively strong nicotine, nutty, woody, grassy, rich bitterness from such a desirable tobacco leaf! The bitter taste from the Latakia covers up the negative aspects of the Burley and mixed with the black cavendish softens the overall impression of the smoke. However, that doesn't stop it from being a smoky flavor. That is not to say that it is a heavy blend. "Nice everyday smoke" is a perfect description for this blend, especially for Burley fans.
