This is a very fine blend. It does need some care to get the most out of it such as a proper pack and a bit of time to dry in the bowl before lighting. Once lit, the pace of draws needs to be slower to allow the blend to stay cool. All that said, the flavor is superb and well worth a bit of preparation. the spice is soft and alluring, the delicate flavor of the orientals is out front the entire bowl. If you have not tried this blend I highly recommend it for the excellent flavor profile. Pure Oriental bliss!
The tin aroma of this blend is wonderful. This is a virginia oriental blend with a naturally sweet taste. The oriental leaf is not sour or tart, thankfully. That makes this blend easy to smoke. The perique is added in very small amount just to cool the blend. It is not strong but it has a full body. The cut is fine and this smokes fast, but I don't mind that.
This is a good Virginia, Oriental blend. The touch of Perique adds to the blend without overwhelming it. Very nice.
