Nording - Hunter Blend: Beagle 50g
Nording - Beagle (Hunter Blend)
A beautiful looking broken flake with a few full flakes. Tin aroma is the rich raisiny smell of a quality VaPer. The initial light and first ¼ of the bowl is a medium tasting balanced Virginia. Neither sweet, sour or grassy. Almost boring. Afterwards the Perique starts kicking in with the Virginia adding a light richness and a little spice. Continuing on the Perique picks up strength but never goes beyond a medium spice. Towards the end the Perique becomes mild and everything settles into a pleasant VaPer. I smoked on an empty stomach in the AM and didn't even notice any nicotine. This is not a tinned version of McClelland - Bulk No. 2015 Virginia Perique Flake.

Let me say this is the finest ribbon cut I've seen from C&D in a long while. The cut allows it to be packed easily and burns completely. Upon first light you get the sweetness from the Cavendish and the Virginias with a strong Perique spice when exhaling through the nose tasting a lot like a VaPer. Soon the sweetness dissapears and the Latakia shows up with the Orientals coming and going by adding a slight pleasant sourness. Slowly the Perique blends in and disappears, remaining a background player. Eventually the Orientals start to take the lead and becomes the dominant tobacco with a nice woodiness till the end of the bowl. I'd put this as mild in the nicotine department with medium taste and a light/medium English blend.

Nice tin aroma, a little dry in the tin for my tastes. Hints of vanilla and perique, really not much flavor unless you count the middle of the bowl harshness I get from some C&D blends. Can burn hot but but doesn't bite.

Wonderful rich, plumy, fruity, sweet tin aroma. Perfect moisture out of the tin. Lights easily with a sweet taste. The sweetness diminishes and the perique makes an appearance and stays there as a peppery spice vs. a plummy fruity taste. No bite but it did get a little harsh if pushed too fast or hot. A nice change of pace from the Red Virginia based VaPers.
