Ennerdale is a Virginia-based Lakeland aromatic. Floral essences make these toppings truly unique. The flavors compliment the Virginias in unexpected way, highlighting different qualities of the aged Virginias. A pinch of Burley is added to move the body to the medium level and take some of the heat out of this aromatic blend.
‘Unexpected’ is the truth. With such a description, I cautiously put flame to leaf: a mellow grassy flavor greeted me. I figured this would be over the top, but I was wrong. The floral essences bring out the hay-quality of the Virginias for sure, but the Burley and almond topping add a nutty quality that tames the floral essences nicely. The body seems medium to me, and I’d recommend this for anyone looking for something different while sticking with a time-honored legend.
