A comfy mixture of bright Virginia, Oriental Izmir, and a vodka based whipped cream top note. An all day Virginia/Oriental mixture that can be a mild introduction to Izmir or a dessert smoke for an experienced smoker.

Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

The dry, barely buttery sweet, woody, earthy, sharp, spicy, mildly smoky, very floral, herbal, vegetative Izmir is the lead component in terms of effect. The bright Virginia provides a lot of citrus, grass, bread, a little wood, and a few small drops of honey as a fairly close competitor. The rich, deep vodka based whipped cream topping sublimates and cohesively works with the varietals, taming many rough edges, and offering a consistent mildly sweet, creamy flavor to the sweet and savory tobaccos. The strength almost reaches the medium level, while the taste barely reaches that mark. The nic-hit is nearly as potent as the strength threshold. It does gather a little more potency half way through the bowl. Won’t bite or get harsh, but the spice content may tingle the tongue of a fast puffer. I recommend a moderate puffing cadence. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and doesn’t require many relights. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste and room note. It’s almost a semi-aromatic, and is a comfortable all day smoke with some depth and body. Three and a half stars.
