The burley is very earthy, woody, and nutty. It is the lead component. The Virginia provides some tart and tangy citrus, bread, sugar, grass, light earth, wood, and a floral note as a supporting player. The creamy sugary black cavendish is almost as obvious as the red Virginia. The maple walnut toppings tone down the tobaccos quite a bit without frowning them out. The walnut is a little more prominent than the maple. The strength is in the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is a step behind that. The taste is a rung below the medium mark. Won’t bite or get harsh. Barely has any rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent, rich sugary, nutty, maple, fruity flavor that extends to the short lived, pleasant after taste. The room note is pleasant. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An all day smoke. Three and a half stars.
