The aspects that peek out through the deeply rich spiced rum topping are some nuts, earth and wood from the burley, and grass from the Virginia. I barely notice any tangy citrus. The brown sugary black cavendish is the star varietal, though, it, too, is muted a bit by the rum. Even still, it is more obvious than the other tobaccos. The strength is in the center of mild to medium. The taste is medium. The nic-hit is a slot behind the strength level. No chance of bite or harshness, and sports no rough edges. The moisture level is a tad high, so you may want to give it a short dry time before launching into the experience. I did not do that. Burns cool, clean, and a little slow if not given some dry time. The flavor is very consistent from start to finish. Has a very pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl if not dried, but no goop. Requires some relights. An all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
