The burleys provide a lot of earth, wood and nuts as the lead components. The Virginias offer plenty of tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, sugar, mild vegetation, wood, earth, light floralness, and a few pinches of spice. They are supporting players, and are a step ahead of the sugary, toasty black cavendish in terms of effect. The toppings are a tad hard to define, but I certainly notice creamy caramel, and what appears to be a tartly fruity, mildly sour brandy. The latter is more obvious than the former. The rich toppings moderately sublimate the tobaccos. The strength and nic-hit are a notch short of the center of mild to medium. The taste level is a slot past that center. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Has a few minute rough notes. May need a light dry time, but I did not do that as is my custom when reviewing a blend. Burns cool, clean and a touch slow with a very consistent, fruity, sugary sweet and mildly sour flavor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires a few more than an average numbers of relights. Has a very pleasant room note. An easy going, comfortable all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
