The broadcut flake style Virginias are mostly bright with some darker Va.s, and produce a wealth of tart and tangy citrus, bread, floralness, some sugar, sour lemon, vegetation, earth, wood, light darker tangy fruit, a couple pinches of spice, and acidity. They are the lead components with the bright Va. taking the front position. The Yana blackened burley offers some earth, wood, sugar and nuts in a strong support role. The Pumpkin Pie Moonshine topping is sweet and sour, and is the star flavor, though it doesn’t totally drown out the tobaccos. The strength is medium. The taste is a step past that mark. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh. Has a few small rough notes. Burns cool, clean, and slightly slow with a very consistent sweet and mildly sour, fruity, floral, lightly nutty, spicy flavor that extends to the short lived, pleasant after taste. The room note is a notch stronger. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires a couple more than an average number of relights. Not quite an all day smoke. Three stars.
