A balanced mixture of premium burley and virginia tobaccos, with a small amount of black cavendish for flavouring.
Opening this tobacco actually took me off guard, as it has a spicy smell akin to orientals, and looks like nesting material for a bird, albeit in a pressed flake state.
Upon lighting this blend I was again taken off guard as I was hit immediately by the taste of honey, followed quickly by a nutty flavour, making it seem like honey roasted nuts of some sort. (Hazelnuts or almonds is what it seemed to me.)
It smoked true throughout the bowl, only lessening a little just before it puffed out. A clean, cool, dry, smooth smoke with a great richness to it, though somewhat subtle.
This could be considered a great english smoke, judging solely on the ones that I have tried in the past, as it still has a little spiciness to it.
Very little dottle and what there was was fully blackened, so no waste whatsoever.

As always, smoke it as you prefer, and I hope you find the tobacco that best suits you.
