Paradoxical is Burley dominated with all the qualities it brings, complimented by the unique Rustica Tobacco. The taste is Nutty with underlying cocoa notes, as good Burley provides, and is supported by the sweetness from the Virginias. On top of this the spicy and earthy notes from the Rustica present itself, and not only in the taste is Rustica to find, but it also turns up the strength just a notch. A pleasant blend to smoke with a good mouthfeel and satisfactory on strength.

wow, this one was truly a pleasure to smoke. The tin note was ok, bready, earthy, and slight cocoa and nuttyness, but it is subtle. NOW, when you light it, nothing is subtle. strong, but delicate at the same time if that makes sense... it is sweet, spicy, and nutty.. the rustica can absolutely be detected, not just for its strength but the flavor and aroma it brings. it is hard to describe...it is just GOOD, damn good.
