The main star was the various burleys, which offered some nuts and wood, a bit of earth, a very light molasses, and a pinch or two of spice. The floral, dry, woody, eartthy Orientals were almost a supporting player. The smoky, woody, dry wine-like Syrian latakia was a condiment, though it was a little more obvious than the Virginia. The grassy, citrusy Virginia was the base for the other components, and as such, ended up being the least noticeable varietal. The nic-hit was in the center of mild to medium. It didn’t bite, but it had some harshness and rough spots, mostly from the burleys; white burley in particular. Burned clean at a reasonable pace with a little inconsistency in flavor. Left little moisture in the bowl, and required an average number of relights. Had a rough after taste, and was not quite an all day smoke.

This is another blend that I went back to my files to pull out a review. And by files, I mean the paper files I kept in the 1970s, long before computers came along. The co-founder of my local pipe club swore that this was the finest tobacco he ever smoked. I just remember buying a few pouches because I loved the art work. They sat in an old cooler for 20 or so years before I was convinced to give the ugly old boar a shot and I'm glad that I did. Talk about an old style Burley with some added goodies, this one is it. The burley was just a tad on the bitey side but the Orientals were cool and spicy and the Virginia was solid and very broad cut. A nostalgic ride for sure.

How good was it? Well, I'm saving the other pouches for the tin art, and not to smoke.
