I purchased on a whim whilst buying my usual rotation and upon opening the pouch i found an inviting burst of sweet, pudding aromas lept out. The blend smells like a rich desert and together with the appearance of the dark tobacco promised a sweet flavour sensation. The coffee was there, but the caramel took centre stage.
It was at this point my love affair ended. It's very sticky and no amount of drying seemed to get it any dryer. On lighting the smoke was sweet and flavourful but in a sickly, syrupy manner. I found the Cavendish heavy blend to taste harsh, ashy and boring in the tobacco dept, and too much sweet in the topping dept.
If sweet is your thing, this might be up your street, but for me it was a step to far.
