Medium Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

The earthy, nutty/oat-like, woody, lightly molasses sweet burleys are the lead components. The Virginias provide a burst of tart and tangy citrus, grass, sugar, bread, floralness, some earth, wood, light tangy darker fruit, a few cinnamon-like spice notes and honey as supporting players. The sugary stewed fruity, earthy, woody, lightly spicy stoved Virginia cavendish is a little more than a condiment. The obvious sweet rum topping mildly sublimates the tobaccos. The strength and taste levels are medium. The nic-hit is a couple of steps behind that mark. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, and barely has any rough edges. The plug easily breaks apart to suit your packing preference, and is a little moist, but not so that it needs any dry time. Burns cool, clean and a tad slow with a very consistent sweet, lightly spicy, floral flavor that extends to the softly lingering, pleasant after taste, and room note. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires a touch more than an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke.
