The various fermented Virginias come from several continents with the bright and brown leading the charge over the red Virginias. They provide a wealth of tart and tangy citrus, sugar, vegetative grass, bread, floralness, some tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, mild spice, and a touch of acidity. They are the lead components. The plumy, raisiny, earthy, woody, spicy perique is almost a supporting player. The sweet red wine vinegar casing has a very mild effect on the proceedings. The strength, nic-hit and taste levels are medium. No chance of bite or harshness. It does have a few very small rough notes as blend of this kind always do. Well balanced with some depth and punch, it burns cool, clean and a tad slow with a very consistent sweet, moderately floral, spicy, rich flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. The room note is a notch stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a few more than an average number of relights. It’s not quite an all day smoke, but it is repeatable in small to medium size bowls. Three and a half stars rounded up to four because it’s more than a three star blend.
