The fermented bright Virginia provides a big burst of tart and tangy citrus, some grass and hay, along with a pinch of sugar, spice, light acidity, and a moderate floral quality as the lead component. The stoved Virginia offers a lot of sugary fermented stewed, mildly creamy, tangy dark fruit and a little citrus, earth and wood as a supporting player. It just edges out the fermented tangy ripe dark fruity, earthy, woody, vegetative, lightly vinegarish and floral, bready, barely spicy red Virginia for attention. The strength and nic-hit are a step shy of the medium mark. Partly due to the floral aspects of the Virginias, the taste is medium. No chance of bite or harshness, but it does sport a light rough edge. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a mostly consistent, richly sweet, lightly floral, slightly spicy flavor that translates the mildly lingering, pleasant after taste and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. A comfortable all day smoke with some character, body and depth. Three and a half stars.
