The blended Turkish provides a wealth of earth, wood, floralness, tart and bitter sourness, vegetation, herbs, some spice, mild buttery sweetness, and smoke as the lead components. The maduro cigar offers a fair amount of earth, wood, smoke, peaty vegetation, floralness, toast, some spice, creamy sugar, fairly mild tangy citrus, cocoa, light coffee, dark fruit, and a touch of molasses as an important supporting player. The aspects of the red Virginia are a fair amount of tart and tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, some sugar, mild tart citrus, floralness, a few blades of grass, and small touches of spice and vinegar. It is a slot or two behind the maduro cigar. The Royal Scot cavendish is barely noticeable, but it does add a slight vanilla note. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of steps past the medium threshold. The taste just passes that mark. No chance of bite or harshness. Has a few light rough notes. Burns cool and clean with a very consistent sweet and sour, fruity, floral, smoky, spicy, savory flavor that extends to the mildly lingering, pleasant after taste. The room note is a slot stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl. Requires an average number of relights. Not an all day smoke, but it is repeatable. Three and a half stars.
