This review is based on a sample of the 1930s version, which I had the good fortune to try. This blend is still made, though not available in the USA. The burley is a little nutty and toasty. The Virginia is earthy, lightly sweet with earth and grass notes, and a mild tanginess. The unsweetened black cavendish has only a slight effect on the smoke, and I suspect it has lost more from aging than the other components have. The Virginia has the characteristics of full maturity in strength and taste, more so than the burley does, and often takes the lead, though I usually notice the burley more early in the proceeding. Fairly smooth and mild to medium in strength and taste with a moderate nic-hit. Itís a shag cut that burns a little slower than your average shag, hardly requiring any relights. There are a few cigarette/cigar notes after the half way point, though they are less obvious if you puff slowly, which produced better results for me when I did. Leaves nothing but ash at the finish. Could pass for an all day smoke.
