The earthy, woody, floral, vegetative, mildly buttery sweet, sour and tingly spicy Orientals are the lead component. They get a very important boost from the smoky, woody, earthy, floral, mildly musty and leathery, sweet Cyprian Latakia. The vintage, fermented Virginia provides plenty of tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, some sugar, vegetation, a little wood and earth, mild darker fruit, and light floralness. It’s a couple of notches above the condimental line. The strength and nic-hit are a step short of the medium mark. The spice and floral content pushes the taste level a slot past the medium threshold. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, and has few small rough notes; fewer than this type of blend usually has. Well balanced, it burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very richly consistent sweet and sour, savory, spicy, floral, campfire flavor that extends to the mildly lingering, pleasant after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. The room note is pleasant to tolerable. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran, and repeatable for these experienced. Three stars and a half stars.
