The earthy, woody, floral, spicy, rather dry, sour, nutty, tart dark fired Kentucky is the lead component. The earthy, woody, tangy dark fruity, mildly citrus sweet Virginias are a secondary player. They are a couple of notches below the support level. The sweet burleys provide some earth, wood, and nuts. They are as obvious as the Virginias. There is a mildly tart vinegar/barbecue casing. The strength is a couple of rungs past the medium mark. The taste level is a step past that. The nic-hit is medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, though there are a few small rough notes. The plug is fairly easy to break apart, and may need a light dry time. Burns cool, clean, and slow with a very consistent, deeply rich sweet, spicy, floral, campfire flavor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl. Requires a fair number of relights. The room note is pleasant to tolerable. Not an all day smoke, but it is repeatable.
