Blue Ridge Special is a decidedly Scottish mixture based on ripe red Virginia leaf. Spiced gently with Latakia we have tempered with a unique process that takes the pungent edge off and adds a depth to its aromatic qualities. This blend shows off both the tangy sweetness of the red Virginias and the sweet smokey incense like flavor and aroma Of Cyprian Latakia.

The ripe red Virginias provide a burst of tangy, lightly tart dark fruit, some tart and tangy citrus, grass, earth, wood, bread, vegetation, sugar, light floralness, spice, a touch of acidity, and a bare hint of vinegar. They are the lead components. The very smoky, woody, earthy, musty, incense-like, mildly sweet Cyprian Latakia is a strong supporting player. The unique processing of the Latakia results in a light spicy, herbal, floral Oriental-like presence that well compliments the previously noted aspects of that varietal. The strength and nic-hit are a step short of the medium mark. The taste level is medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, and has few rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a mostly consistent tangy sweet and tartly savory, floral, campfire flavor that translates to lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. The room note is a slot stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Despite its rich punchiness, it can be an all day smoke.
