The richly smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is the base of the blend. The Virginia has a fermented, stewed fruit and dark fruitiness with noticeable sugar and earth characteristics, indicating it is stoved. Like the woody, dry, earthy, herbal Java tobaccos, the Virginia is a supporting player. There’s also minor spice and clove notes that seems to come from the Java. The nic-hit is a step past the mild threshold. Won’t bite, but needs to sipped a little to avoid a warm feeling in the mouth. Burns clean at a slightly more than moderate pace with some creamy smoothness, a few rough edges, and a consistent flavor from start to finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant woody sweet, lightly savory after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke.

This tobacco impressed me in an extraordinary way. The presence of Java leaves is a truly unique feature in the panorama of English mixtures. The earthy and herbaceous notes of Java leaves compare with the smoky ones of Latakia. Virginias present are only a support also covered by the spicy notes of the Orientals. It’s a blend that can amaze and bewitch: it did it with me. It is one of the blends that I want to smoke more often in this period. I could never confuse it with another blend, at least among the many I have tried so far.
