Due to my eagerness to try it prior to eating, I felt a substantial nicotine hit that nearly buckled my knees and put me right back into my chair.
Virginias are carefully conditioned to insure sweetness.
They are added to rich, heavier and cooler Virginias.
A unique flavor is added to the final blend to enhance the subtle and piquant aroma.
It burned quite well and very cool to the bottom of the bowl with only two relights necessary.
The flavors were of hay (not in a bad way, I really enjoyed it), slightly sweet raisin and a little leather.
The taste seemed fairly consistent on through the bowl, with no tongue bite and thick smoke even with small short puffs.
I did notice the nicotine level seemed to get stronger at the bottom of the bowl.
I actually purchased a tin of Royal Yacht as more of an evening/after dinner smoke.
When my tin arrived in the mail, I of course opened it, and took a whiff.
