The fire cured African Kentucky offers an abundance of earth, wood, spice, nuts, vegetation, some barbecue, floralness, sourness and mild sweetness with a few cigar notes as it takes a small lead. The Izmir and Samsun provide a wealth of earth, wood, vegetation, incense, herbs, floralness, a fair amount of spice, dry, bitter sourness and light buttery sweetness in a strong support role. The fragrant dark Virginia produces a moderate amount of earth, wood, dry dark fruit, bread, floralness, tart citrus, a little vegetative grass, sugar, and spice in the third slot. The strength and nic-hit are bountiful. The taste is full. No chance of bite or harshness. Has some rough edges. Well balanced, deeply rich and punchy, it burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate with a very consistent floral, spicy, nutty, incense, sweet and mildly sour, barbecue flavor that extends to the pleasantly lasting after taste. The room note is very pungent. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a tad more than an average number of relights. Not an all day smoke. Four stars.

This is my second KBV blend to try. Almost a shag cut, behaves pretty well. The Virginia's sit behind the smoky barbecue of the Kentucky and the spice of the Orientals. More sour than sweet, but in a good way. A nice surprise.
