The toasted, double toasted burleys and the brown burley cavendish are the lead components. They provide a lot of earth, wood, nuttiness, toast, very light molasses, some cocoa, a pinch of spice, and a few grains of sugar. They also have a few rough, sour edges. The red Virginia offers tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, and light sugar and floral notes as a condiment. The lightly bitter dark cocoa topping moderately sublimates and cohesively helps create a very consistent, moderately sweet and lightly savory, rugged, toasty flavor that translates to the light lingering, pleasant after taste and room note. The strength is a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste is a slot past that mark. The nic-hit is a rung below the strength level. There’s no chance of bite or harshness here. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke.
