The potent Orientals provide an abundance of floralness, earth, wood, herbs, incense, vegetation, spice, a fair amount of sourness, and a little buttery sweetness as the lead components. The rugged, nutty, earthy, woody, toasty burleys almost offer full support. The Virginias provide some tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, sugar, floralness, sour lemon, and an undetermined amount of spice with light acidity in the third position. They aren’t far behind the burleys in terms of effect. The very fruity topping leads the mildly applied vanilla, and both moderately tone down the tobaccos. The strength just passes the center of medium to strong. The nic-hit is right behind that. The taste is full. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, but it does have a few rough edges. The spice content is high, so I recommend a slow puffing cadence. Well balanced and deeply rich with some zest, it burns cool and clean at a slightly slow pace with a very consistent fruity, sweet, floral, nutty, spicy, herbal flavor that extend to the long lingering, pleasant after taste. The room note is pungently sweetly floral and spicy. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires one or two relights over the average number. Not an all day smoke, but it is repeatable. Will ghost a briar, and before long, a meer as well. Three and a half stars.
