McGahey - Brazilian Coffee.
This is another of the blends that aren't so popular that I'm trying to review lately. I'm not an avid aromatic-man, but along with vanilla I have to admit I have a penchant for coffee aro's. This hits the spot pleasantly.
I wasn't sure as to how the appearance would be, the name Ready Rubbed can be fairly vague. The blend includes ribbons, small cubes, broken flakes, and sadly there's also a few twigs.
The coffee in the smoke is easily identified but not too strong: rather than being overbearing, it gives the smoke more of a richness.
Aside from the coffee, the remainder of the flavour is occupied by quality Cavendish. This is also a little different to the usual style: it's nowhere near as sickly sweet, but quite crisp.
The nicotine's quite mild, it's as you'd expect from a Cavendish blend.
This is a good coffee aro' but I'll award it three instead of four as although it's good I wouldn't pipe it regularly.
