Matured bright Virginia (Dressing), large cuts of burley plug (Dark Turkey meat), and some bits of candela for a festive look. A light honey and whipped cream topping is present, but the dominant flavor will be nutty burley kept in check by the generous helping of bright Virginia.

Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The very nutty, earthy, woody, lightly molasses sweet burley also sports a touch of cocoa as the lead component. The matured bright Virginia takes the second slot with a lot of tangy, fermented citrus, a little tart lemon and earth, mild grass and wood, with a slight sugary and floral note. I also sense a very bare hint of apricot. The fairly floral green candela cigar leaf provides a little citrus, grassy vegetation, tea, cedar, hint of pepper, some smoke, and a touch of wood as it competes with the Virginia for attention. More often than not, it surpasses the Virginia a mite by effect and not by its percentage in the mix. The honey and whipped cream toppings tone down the tobaccos very mildly, and all the ingredients work together harmoniously. The strength and nic-hit are a step past the center of mild to medium, while the taste is a rung past that, falling short of the medium mark. Won’t bite or get harsh, and has few rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate with a fairly consistent, deeply rich, mildly sweet and savory, floral flavor that translates to the lightly lingering after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Not quite an all day smoke due to the richness of the blend, but it is repeatable. Three and a half stars.
