The sweet Maryland burley offers plenty of nuts, earth, wood, toast, light sugar, and molasses. It takes a small lead. The Virginia provides some tart and tangy citrus, grass, sugar, bread, vegetation, light floralness, and a pinch of spice as an important supporting player. The aspects of the perique are a fair amount of spice, earth, wood, and some dried plums. It’s is the third slot, though it has a secondary effect on the proceedings. The very sugary, lightly creamy vanilla sweet Royal Scot cavendish is a notch below the perique. The strength and nic-hit are in the center of mild to medium. The taste is a step past that mark. Won’t bite or get harsh. Well balanced, it burns cool and clean at a slightly fast pace with a very consistent nutty, sugary, mildly spicy, rather smooth flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a very pleasant room note. Can be an all day smoke.
