The gold and yellow Virginias provide a wealth of tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, sugar, some floralness, tart lemon, mild spice, wood, and very light acidity as the lead components. The creamy, sugary, bready black cavendish is a supporting player. The tartly sweet and mildly sour kiwi leads the mirabelle cherry which is also tartly sweet and mildly sour. Their effect is a little more than moderate. The strength and taste are medium. The nic-hit is a couple of steps below the overall strength level. Won’t bite or get harsh, but the acidity from the Virginias and fruit toppings suggest a slow puffing cadence. Has a few very light rough notes. Burns cool, clean and slightly slow with a very consistent fruity, floral, spicy, sour, acidic, mildly zesty flavor that extends to the lingering after taste. The room note is pleasant. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires a couple more than an average number of relights. Not quite an all day smoke, but it’s certainly repeatable. Two and a half stars.
