The neat thing is that what it unifies /into/ seems to change with my moods and which pipe I smoke it in.
My Jobey emphasizes the nutty and leathery flavors, whereas my Italian pipes bring out the musky sweetness of the Cavendish and Macedonian. This is an easy blend to smoke hot, both due to the cut and the fact that I keep mine rather on the dry side.
Denoument: The end is approaching and there is still no sign of sour, bitter or ashy taste.
Taking my time, though, produces just enough warmth and moisture to bring out the flavor and my pipe never gets more than warm to the touch. The room aroma is heavy and natural and seems unwanted my most non-smokers indoors.
Outdoors, I get many compliments - it makes people wistful as they remember some wonderful night by the fireplace or a special camping trip.
It has a dark sweetness from the brown Cavendishes and lighter Macedonian, and a woody, leathery smell from the some of the choicest Latakia I have ever experienced.
Appearance: This is a finely-cut tobacco consisting of medium to short ribbons varying evenly in color from golden-brown to black with some birdseye stems with an interesting woody texture.
This is a mixture that is medium in strength and definately FULL of flavor.
