Tasty ice cream. But, very simple. Might go for some Carter Hall next.Summary: a sweet blend with a vanilla top note that brings out sugary and chocolate notes in the leaf.
For all that has been written about this blend, and its depth of flavor and the taste challenges posed by the dark fired leaf, forget it: this blend is ice cream. To the sweet Virginias and dark-fired Burley the blenders added vanilla, which makes the sweet taste like vanilla ice cream and the dark take on a chocolatey tone. It burns easily but moist, has some bite from the Virginias, but mostly is a sweet fing smoke that like Carter Hall or Prince Albert, evokes your favorite dessert flavors more than strong tobacco tastes. As a result, this is a good blend for new smokers, junk food addicts or children.
