The Virginias have light grass and tart citrus along with some tangy ripe dark fruit, wood, and earth. they form the base of the blend as secondary stars. The Cyprian Latakia is smokey, woody, earthy, musty, leathery sweet as a team player with the woody, earthy, fairly spicy, herbal, floral, vegetative, sweet, and lightly sour Orientals taking a little of the lead. The strength and nic-hit are medium, and while the taste is a couple of steps past that mark. Won't bite or get harsh even if you're bad at it. it does have some rough edges. The flakes are easily broken apart for convenient packing. Well blended to the point that you'll notice every nuance in every puff, even though the Orientals and Latakia tend to dominate a little. Smokes cool, clean, and smooth with a minor creaminess and very consistent, mildly sweet and more savory, spicy campfire taste that translates t the pleasantly lingering after taste. It Burns at a slow to moderate pace and requires some relights, but not as many as some flakes do. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl. The campfire room note won't be for everyone, but they'll leave you in peace to enjoy your smoke. It may not be an all-day experience but bears repeating more than once if this fits your flavor profile.
