The Virginias are grassy with a little earth, a fair amount of citrus and minor fruit notes. They direct the smoking experience, and play well with the other components. The smoky, very woody, Orientals have a moderate spice hit as an ever present second lead. It also offers a slight sourness to contrast the little creamy sweetness it possesses. The smoky, woody sweet Cyprian latakia is a back up player, and while not forceful in any way, itís evident in every puff. Well balanced with a little complexity, though I notice a very light recession of sweetness in the last quarter. There is no topping. Being a shag cut, it burns well even though the tobacco is mildly moist out of a freshly opened tin. No dry time is necessary. No bite. Has a moderate nic-hit due to the strength of the Orientals. The strength is closer to medium than it is to mild, and the taste just barely hits the medium mark. Leaves virtually no moisture in the bowl, and requires very few relights. Has a pleasant spicy after taste and a woody room note. Reminds me of a less potent version of Skiff, and is almost an all day smoke for the average smoker in this genre. Experienced smokers may find this is very repeatable during their smoking day, but may find the subtleness of the latakia a little unfulfilling if they like more latakia dominant blends. Three and a half stars out of four.

Nice to read your impressions of this one Jim. I have a tin of King Charles on ice. I am a big fan of Germain's Latakia blends and this one seems to be a bit more available lately. I love the shag cut they use. Gives the usually stubborn burning Latakia a bit of a push and keeps the flavor balanced and the pipe going with out too many relights.
