At first light, I found a lot of sweetness between the brandy and the tobaccos. The Burley gives it some body. This is not a black Cavendish - but a browner leaf. I experienced a fruity/alcohol flavor throughout the bowl. Stronger at first, but never completely going away through the bowl. I could imagine, however, a batch to batch or even a tin to tin difference, as is my personal experience with C&D.
The tobacco needs to be sipped, and treated carefully or it will burn extremely hot. I did not experience any bite.
