Description from Tobacco Review says: “This almost black flake tobacco combines the best grades of naturally sweet Virginia and smoky Latakia, matured together under pressure. A wonderfully smooth and mild yet full-bodied mixture. Very reminiscent of the old Bengal Slice.”
My Review: In the tin, I got a burst of lemon, almost like lemon blossoms. Then some smoky spiciness and a hint of fruitiness. The Perique also brings some peppery flavours. Lastly, some notes of leather, mouldy and roasted coffee beans.
Taste: Latakia much more to the fore at the beginning, but balances out smoothly as you progress through the bowl. The Virginia adds a little bit of sweetness. Those lemony aromas are also evident in the taste. Further down the bowl, the leathery notes comes through with the roasted coffee beans also noticeable.
