The natural Habano grown cigar provides plenty of earth, wood, floralness, mildly peaty vegetation, tart and tangy citrus and darker fruit, a little tea, cedar, herbs, grass, smoke, and pepper. It’s the lead component. The bright Virginia is the most obvious Virginia, offering plenty of tart and tangy citrus, bread, grass, floralness, sugar, and light acidity. It’s a supporting player. The aspects of the red Virginias are tangy ripe dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, some sugar, light vegetation, and a smidgeon of spice. They sit in the third position, not far behind the brights. The fruity rum moderately sublimates the tobacco as well as synergistically creating a deeply rich, well balanced, very consistent fruity, floral, cigar flavor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. The strength and nic-hit are medium. The taste level is a step past that mark. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl. Requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant room note which is unusual for blend with this much cigar in it. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran piper, and repeatable for the lesser experienced. Four stars.
