- Room Note:
This is a surprising blend. I ranked it as a rare 5/5. I prefer very natural blends with no toppings and avoid most blends with any hint of aromatics. That said I do enjoy some naval blends with rum.(great on a chill day .) and also have found a few with some toppings I enjoy as a cordial from time to time. This blend is mild in power but strong on flavor. Delicate fruit with a zing of a fine cognac is my first impression. The flavor mixing with the tobaccos gives an excellent profile. This is a blend new Enthusiasts should try, mild, very mellow, great flavor in a classic high quality "topped" blend. fruity, rich, tobacco core is soft and mellow. For the advanced Enthusiast this blend will be very mild. My 5/5 rating means this is highly recommended for All especially new comers and occasional Enthusiasts. This is a good option for a more traditional flavor with plenty of enjoyment for those who favor aromatics and even those who favor natural blends such as myself.
A very mild smoke with only a hint of Perique detected. Easy lighting, smokes through nice and dry with little nicotine. No room note to speak of. Overall a decent smoke at a decent price but no distinct aroma good for mid day. Like coffee that's great on the morning and evening, the afternoon version is not memorable.
