The Cyprian Latakia offers smoke, wood, little incense, light mustiness and some sweetness as the lead component. The floral, earthy, woody, herbal, vegetative, dry, sour and lightly buttery sweet, spicy, tangy Orientals play a strong support role. The very nutty, earthy, woody, lightly molasses sweet burley sits in the third position. The red and brighter Virginias provide a lot of tart and tangy dark fruit and citrus, earth, wood, light grass, and a little "barbecue". They play just below the level of the burley. The red Virginia is a little more prominent than the bright. The strength and taste levels are a couple of steps short of medium. The nic-hit barely passes the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, and hardly sports any rough edges. The plug easily breaks apart to suit your preference. Burns cool, clean and slow. The mildly sweet and more savory, spicy, deeply rich, complex, well balanced flavors are very consistent from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires some relights. Has a lightly lingering campfire after taste, and stronger room note. Can be an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
