The various, mixed cut, fermented, darkened Virginias provide a lot of zesty tart and tangy citrus, grass, vegetation, mild tangy darker fruit, earth, wood, sugar, floralness, a couple pinches of spice, and a hint of smokiness. The raisiny, plumy, earthy, woody, mildly spicy perique is a supporting player. The absinthe and apple cider vinegar casings lightly tone down and compliment the tobaccos. The strength just crosses over the medium threshold. The taste is a full step past the medium mark. The nic-hit is almost medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, and has small hints of rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent sweet, mildly spicy, floral, rather smooth flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran, and easily repeatable for the less experienced. Three stars.
