4noggins Nutty Professor

Stoved Virginias and Burley provide a nut-like and slightly sweet aroma. A touch of Cyprian Latakia, St. James Parish Perique and Turkish tobacco is then added to set it apart from all other blends.

This one looked good on paper and has some good reviews that triggered my TAD. Unfortunately, this one didn’t do it for me.

I wish there was a little more of the good stoved Virginia to cover up some of the problems here. Firstly, I’m guessing the culprit is the small Turkish leaf because they can be very time-intensive to unfurl and dry properly, but if not you get pockets of trapped chlorophyll that I taste now and then. Secondly, the processing of the Burley tastes like scorched brown gravy and potato peel (pH tempering needs re-evaluation!). Thirdly, a stale spice like coriander on the finish, possibly from and old batch of Perique, dried and rehydrated.

So why two stars and not one? Well, to be honest, something has to be pretty bad and unredeemable for me to give one star, and I found that doing a charring light then letting it sit for a few minutes helped to clean up some of these off-putting flavors, and the overall balance and mouthfeel aren’t too bad.

I hate to say it but I wonder if something happened in the blending process or supply chain between the transition of Rich leaving and the new owner taking over. This would explain why the older reviews seem to be talking about something entirely different from what I got. Let’s just say this is a cautionary ‘somewhat recommended’ rating if you like living a little dangerously!
