The white and blackened burleys offer plenty of earth, wood, nuts, some sugar, and a very light ruggedness. They take a small lead. The red and bright Virginias provide some tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, earth, wood, and mild tangy dark fruit. They are supporting players. I notice the red Va. a tad more than the bright. The cocoa is more obvious than the marshmallow, and these rich toppings sublimate the tobaccos quite a bit. The strength is a couple steps past the mild mark. The taste is a notch past that, not quite reaching the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit just passes the mild threshold. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Has very few rough notes. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent sweet, mildly nutty, fruity flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl. Requires an average number of relights. Has a very pleasant room note. A comfortable all day smoke.

The bag note is a mild hot chocolate smell. Sweet, cocoa, marshmallow. It’s nice. Moist but not wet or sticky. A nice looking aromatic. Packed and lite in a Nuttens Bing.

The smoke is very thin, very mild. Marshmallow sweetness, some chocolate, no nose tingle on the retrohale or harshness if pushed. Smoked a whole bowl in an hour and the flavor remained pleasant. Some moisture left over but performed well with little relights. Smoked in the morning with no breakfast and the nicotine was non existent. A delightful smoke .
