The Virginia is processed cavendish-style, and is very lightly grassy with a little citrus, and a drop or two of honey as the lead component. A little burley adds some nuts, earth, wood and molasses, though burley isn’t mentioned in the description. The black cavendish has a little sugar to compliment the mildly sweet, rich vanilla topping. The vanilla does tone down the tobaccos to a fair extent, but you’ll notice them in the background. Has a rather mild nic-hit. The strength is very mild while the taste is a couple steps past the mild mark. I have no idea why this is called “Ultra-Lite”, because it’s not THAT light. The creamy smooth and very consistent, sweet flavors leave a lasting impression on your taste buds. Burns at a moderate pace, cool, clean, even with few relights. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl. The after taste is very pleasant as is the sweet room note, and both linger just a little. An easy going all day smoke that won’t burn you out. I give it three stars in the mild sub-section of the aromatic genre, which is where it should be rated, and not against more highly charged aromatics.
