The various matured, fermented reds, bright and stoved Virginias provide a wealth of stewed dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, sugar, some tart and tangy citrus, tangy darker fruit, grass, vegetation, mild floralness, a couple pinches of spice, and a very light essence vinegar. They are the lead components. The very fermented stewed fruity (plums, dates, figs, raisins) perique offers plenty of earth, wood, and light spice. It’s a notch below the support level. I sense a light red wine casing. The strength and nic-hit are a step past the center mild to medium. The taste is a slot past that mark. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent, smooth stewed fruity, mildly sugary, lightly spicy luscious flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. Barely leaves any dampness in the bowl. Requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant room note. A fairly easy going all day smoke. Four stars.
