The very floral, fragrant, zesty Macedonian Prilep offers a lot of earth, wood, herbs, vegetation, spice, a fair amount of dry sourness, mild sweetness, along with light bitterness and smoke as the lead component. The year 2000 East Carolina and 2009 Brazilian red Virginias provide a burst of tangy ripe fermented dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, some sugar, mild tart and tangy citrus, vegetation, light floralness, grass, and a touch of spice. The mildly sweet Cyprian Latakia produces some earth, wood, floralness, smoke, vegetation, light leather and spice. It is barely above the condiment line. The strength and nic-hit are in the center of medium to full. The taste is almost full. No chance of bite or harshness. Has a few rough edges. Deeply rich, it burns clean and cool at a moderate pace with very consistent, savory, sour, floral, spicy, mildly fruity flavor that extends to the pleasantly long lingering after taste. Barely leaves any moisture in the bowl. Requires an average number of relights. The room note is very pungent. Not an all day smoke. The strongest of the Goblin City blends. Four stars.
