The fine cut African and India Virginias provide a fair amount of some tart and tangy citrus, vegetative grass/hay, floralness, bread, some tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, sugar, mild spice, light peat, and cigar as the lead components. The sweet chocolate cavendish is a supporting player with the vanilla cavendish a step or so behind it. Their effect on the tobaccos is a tad more than moderate. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of notches past the medium threshold. The taste is a slot stronger though it doesn’t reach the center of medium to full. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Has minor rough notes. Well balanced, it burns cool, clean, and slightly slow with a very consistent sweet, fruity, floral, mildly spicy, deeply rich flavor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. The room note is a bit pungent. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a couple more than an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke for the veteran, and easily repeatable for the less experienced. Four stars.
