The smoky, woody, earthy, musty, incense-like Cyprian Latakia is the lead component. The African, North and South Carolina bright Virginias provide a fair amount of tart and tangy citrus, grass, vegetation, earth, wood, floralness, a little spice, and some fermented tangy ripe dark fruit, bread and a hint of vinegar as supporting players. The African Virginia also imparts a cigar note. The English black cavendish sports a little creamy sugar, and is just above being a condiment. The spicy, raisiny, plumy, earthy, figgy perique is far in the background. The vegetable and tomato sweetly and moderately tone down the tobaccos, but weaken a mite by the half way point. The strength is medium and the taste is a step past that mark. The nic-hit is a couple of steps short of medium. No chance of bite or harshness, and has a few minor rough edges. Well balanced with some complexity, it burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate with a deeply rich, mostly consistent, mildly sweet and floral, rather spicy, very savory, campfire flavor that translates the pleasantly lingering after taste. The room note is a slot stronger than the after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Three and a half stars out of four.
