Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The floral, woody, earthy, lightly spicy and sweet and more sour yenidje shag also sports an “unflavored soda note” and is the lead component that also acts as a team player. The mildly sugary, lightly toasty black cavendish is in a secondary role. The spicy, plumy, lightly raisiny perique is just above being a condiment. The smoky, woody, earthy, musty sweet Cyprian Latakia is mostly a condiment. The grassy, citrusy Virginia is in the background despite its percentage in the mix. The strength is in the center of mild to medium, and the taste is just short of medium. The nic-hit is almost as potent as the strength. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool and clean and slightly fast with a mostly consistent mildly sweet and a tad more savory flavor from top to bottom. However, it does lose a little strength toward the finish. Hardly leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke.

Meh. That's it, just meh. There are other more interesting middle of the road Englishes out there. This had neither distinct flavor, nor aroma. I like the company though, so always up for giving them a shot.
