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 very floral, fragrant, tart and tangy Macedonian Prilep offers a lot of earth, wood, herbs, vegetation, spice, a fair amount of dry sourness, mild sweetness, light bitterness and smoke in an strong support role. 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. It’s a notch behind the Prilep in terms of effect. The tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, sugar, floralness, mild spice, light sour lemon aspects of the flue cured bright Virginia are a couple of slots above the condiment line. Has strong body, depth, nicotine and full flavor. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Does have a few small rough edges. Well balanced, it burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate with a very consistent creamy sweet and more sour, floral, fruity, spicy, savory flavor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. The room note is very pungent. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Not an all day smoke, but veteran pipers accustomed to blends in this genre may find it repeatable. Four stars.

Wow! This is not your ordinary Oriental blend. The cigar leaf addition adds a real kick to what is often a relatively mild, sweet-sour Oriental that we've come to know and love. I like this, although I'm unsure it will be a daily go-to for me, only because it's pungent cigar leaf is so powerful. But it will be hard to turn this blend down when I want a firm kick in the butt flavor, and I mean that in the very best sense.
