WILKE No. 13
The very smokey, woodsy, earthy, musty sweet Cyprian Latakia is an ever present supporting player. The Virginia is grassy and lightly sweet, acting as a base for the other components like the nutty, earthy, woody, toasty burley. The perique is a lightly spicy, raisiny, plumy addition. The cavendish provides a few sweet honey notes. The Royal Scot topping is mildly sweet. Hints of vanilla and caramel push this cool smoking blend toward the American English category without going over the line into aro-English territory. The toppings lightly tones down the tobaccos. The strength and taste levels are medium. The nic-hit is a couple of steps past the mild mark. Won't bite or get harsh, and has few rough edges. Slow burning, needs a little dry time, but the flavors are mostly consistent throughout the smoke. Burns cool and clean. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires a tad more than an average number of relights. Has a lightly lingering pleasant after taste and stronger room note. Not quite an all day smoke. Two and a half stars.
