Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The various grades of crumb cut burleys provide plenty of earth, wood, nuts, mild sugar, and a slight sharp and spicy savoriness. A few pinches of Cyprian Latakia offers exceptionally mild smoky mustiness, woody, earthy, floral, herbal, vegetative, sweet and slightly spicy qualities. Its effect continually underscores the experience far in the background. The rich plum casing is a little more obvious than the molasses. Very light anise is present, too. The casings mildly tone down the burleys as they help form a very synergistically consistent nutty, rather sweet, lightly smoky flavor with a little depth. The strength and nic-hit fall a step short of the center of mild to medium. The taste just edges past that center. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. It does sport a few very light rough edges. Burns cool, clean, and a tad slow with a short lived, very pleasant after taste. The room note is a touch stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a couple more than an average number of relights. A comfortable all day smoke in the tradition of old school blends. Three and a half stars.
