Aged in whiskey barrels, a blend of Virginia and burley leaf mixed with a hint of black cavendish. A very smooth smoke, with a wonderful aroma of tropical fruits and hickory nuts. Perfect for a rainy day and a pint of IPA.

Chieftain - Stormy Skye.

The 'rubbing' has resulted in a mixture composed of coarse ribbons and a few twigs. By just looking it's simple to ascertain it's going to be a smoke with only a little black Cavendish flavour and the aroma's quite fruity and sharp.

A bowl takes to the flame easily, the moisture was perfect. As expected, the black Cavendish only accounts for a tiny proportion of the taste, the tobaccos have more of a Burley driven VaBur character; quite an arboreous and naturally 'nutty' smoke! Then, the added flavours? The Hickory nuts compliment the Burley nicely, these and a sour, sharp, fruitiness are at the front. The whisky offers a small amount, which works nicely with the tropical fruitiness; sharp and sharper! A bowl burns well, but the smoke can bite me.

Nicotine: maybe medium. Room-note: nice.

Stormy Skye? Not a bad smoke, I can see it getting many fans of this type of blend, but considering the bite I'll only somewhat recommend it:

Two stars.
