The vintage, fermented bright, dark, and fire cured Virginias provide a fair amount of tart and tangy citrus, vegetative grass, earth, wood, bread, floralness, some tangy dark fruit, sugar, mild sour lemon, spice, barbecue, and a touch of acidity. The salted caramel whiskey topping moderately tones down the tobaccos, and helps create a very consistent sweet and mildly sour, floral, nuanced flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. The room note is a notch stronger. The strength and nic-hit are a tad short of the medium mark. The taste is medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Has a few very small rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
