The various Virginias provide a burst of tangy ripe dark fruit, earth, wood, lots of bread, sugar, vegetation, floralness, some tart and tangy citrus, grass, a little sour lemon and stewed fruit, along with light acidity, vinegar and spice. The earthy, woody, spicy, plumy, figgy, lightly sugary perique is more of a secondary player than a supporting one. The sugary, lightly toasty, chunky black cavendish sits in the third position as it helps smooth out the blend. The baking spices have a little potency. Though they moderately sublimate the tobaccos, they also serve to help create a synergistic, very consistent sweet and spicy rich flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. The strength, nic-hit and taste levels are medium. No chance of bite or harshness, and barely has any rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant room note. Three and a half stars rounded up to four.
