The earthy, woody, very nutty burleys take the lead. The red and bright Virginias provide a little tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, light tart and tangy citrus, and a couple blades of grass. They are right behind the sugary black cavendish in terms of effect. The deep cherry topping has a small advantage over the chocolate and vanilla creme garnish. I also sense a very light cognac essence in the background. The toppings moderately sublimate the varietals as all elements synergistically form a cohesive, consistent, creamy sweet, lightly nutty, rich flavor The strength is in the center of mild to medium. The taste is a step past that center. Has a very mild nic-hit. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. No rough edges exist here. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. It has a lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. An easy going all day smoke with a very attractive room note. Three and a half stars out of four.
