Jim's STG Kentucky Bird Review.

Postby JimInks » Fri Apr 15, 2016 1:20 am

The Virginia offers a little grass and a little citrus, but it's at least half way buried under the toppings, though there's more of this than there is Kentuckys. The nutty sweet, earthy Kentuckys are more noticeable, but also much subdued. The flowers used seem to be rose and geranium, but I think perhaps others are present either as an ingredient or a topping. I bet my money more on the latter. It's very hard to tell. The nic-hit is just beyond mild. Won't bite even if pushed. The strength and taste are both mild to medium, with the taste being closer to medium than the strength is. Ribbon and lightly moist, it burns at a moderate pace with a cool, clean, very consistent, very smooth deep floral sweetness that never weakens. Has no dull or harsh spots either. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and will burn to ash with just a few relights. Has a pleasant after taste. Made for an experienced smoker, how one rates it will greatly depend on one's preference for heavily floral sweet tobacco products. If you like Lakelands or strong floral blends, there's a chance this might suit you. For that smoker, this could easily be an all day smoke.
