The smoky, woody, earthy, vegetative, leathery, musty, incense-like, mildly sweet, dryly sour Cyprian Latakia is the lead component, comprising at least half the blend. The cube cut white burley provides some nuts, earth, wood, vegetation, floralness, toasted bread, a little dry sourness, light sugar, a slight essence of pine, and a couple pinches of spice as a supporting player. The mildly sugary, creamy sweet black cavendish acts mainly as a smoothing agent. The Virginia offers light grass, tart and tangy citrus, sour lemon, bread, light sugar and floralness along with touches of spice as a condiment. The strength and nic-hit are medium. The taste is a step past the medium mark. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. It does have a few small rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate with a very consistent floral, mildly sweet, spicy, nutty and moderately sour, savory campfire flavor from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, mildly lingering after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran, and repeatable for the less experienced. Three and a half stars out of four.
