Comprised of black cavendish and Virginia, this Cobblestone blend features a sangria topping that adds notes of citrus and wine to the flavor profile. It's an appropriately sweet, fruity mixture with just enough bitterness for balance.
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.
