Full disclosure: I helped in the creation of this blend. The very smoky, woodsy, earthy, musty sweet Cyprian Latakia takes a small lead. The Virginia offers grass and lightly tart and tangy citrus as a support base for the other components. The nutty, earthy, woody, toasty, lightly molasses sweet Tennessee burley is a tad more obvious than the Virginia. The earthy, woody perique is a spicy, raisiny, plumy condiment. The cavendish provides a few sweet honey, vanilla, and caramel notes, though they are very elusive. The blood red orange topping has some richness as it moderately sublimates the tobaccos, and cohesively forms a very consistent sweet, campfire flavor. The strength is a step past the center of mild to medium, while the taste level is a slot past that mark. The nic-hit is a rung below the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, and has no rough spots. Burns cool, clean, and rather smooth at a reasonable rate. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a very pleasant, lightly lingering after taste, and room note. An easy going, all day aromatic English.
