The Virginia offers tart and tangy citrus, grass, light earth and wood with a few floral, acidic, and spice notes as the lead component. The brown sugary black cavendish provides some creamy sweetness as a supporting player. The exceptionally sweet sangria topping supplies a variety of tangy and lightly tart fruits (pineapple, cherry, lemon, orange) with a tart, bitter wine essence as it sublimates the tobaccos quite a bit. It doesn’t totally drown them out, but the sangria is the star flavor in this mix. The strength is a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste is medium. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, though there are a few very minute rough edges. The tobacco may need a light dry time, though I did not do that. Burns cool, clean, smooth at a slightly slow pace with a very consistent deeply rich tart and tangy, fruity, light bitterness that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a couple more than an average number of relights. An all day smoke with a little punch. Three and a half stars out of four.
