The various mixed cut, fermented multi-continental aged, darkened Virginias provide a lot of zesty tart and tangy citrus, floral vegetative grass, bread, mild tangy dried dark fruit, earth, wood, sugar, spice, peat, and a small hint of smoke. The light fig, apricot and black current casings very mildly tone down the tobaccos as they accent the experience. It’s a tad stronger than previous versions as there’s less casings in this one, so the inherent strength of the Virginias are a little more prominent. The strength and nic-hit are a step over the medium threshold. The taste is a notch past that mark. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Has a few small rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a mildly lingering, pleasant after taste. The room note is pleasant to tolerable. Can be an all day smoke. Four stars.
