Called “The Christmas Cake” by Gawith & Hoggarth, Burleys and Dark-Fireds provide the base for this blend. Virginias come into the mix with toppings of rum and maple. The decadent toppings bring a full flavor and pleasant room note, while the earthy Burleys raise the body to medium in the blend.
Now, this one here’s a sweet one. In my bowl, I got mostly maple. There is some rum, but it likes to hang out in the background. At times, some Virginia contributes a dash of citrus, and the Burleys serve to raise the body to a definite medium level. I’d recommend this for a great after dinner smoke.
