Radford's - Mixture.
A blend made mostly of medium brown ribbons with a smaller proportion of darker ones, about 10%. Although it includes a few coarser pieces the majority are quite uniform, midsized. The aroma has some citrus sprightliness, but nothing too 'aromatic'.
I find a similar situation with the smoke. I can identify, easily, some citrus notes, but I struggle to identify any nuts; as listed. These might be getting confused with the Burley as this is a formidable flavour; the strongest leaf. The Burley gets some support from the Virginia, but the Va is in a subordinate role. I find the smoke fairly cool, no tongue bite, and it burns steadily.
Nicotine: a jot below medium. Room-note: perfectly inoffensive.
Mixture? I wouldn't call it a Bad Smoke, but I wouldn't have it in my rotation. Somewhat recommended:
Pipe Used: Savinelli Siena
