The tangy buttery sweet, woody, earthy, smoky, floral, dryly sour, herbal, leathery, vegetative, slightly sharp and spicy blonde Izmir is the lead component. The mature gold Virginia provides a lot of tart and tangy citrus, tartly sour, acidic lemon, grass, bread, floralness, a little wood, bread, small pinches of sugar and spice, and a few drops of honey as a supporting player. Though this blend doesn’t have a topping, it does have a opulent organic creamy strawberry and organic rose vodka casing, which mildly sublimates the tobaccos as they also synergistically help form a cohesive smoking experience. I tend to notice the rose a step more than I do the creamy strawberry essence. The strength and nic-hit are a slot shy of the medium mark. The taste level is medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, and barely has any hints of rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a mostly consistent, deep rich, creamy sweet and slightly sour, mildly floral flavor that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Not quite an all day smoke. Three and a half stars out of four.
