An even burning cavendish with an apricot casing that isn't too strong or too artificial tasting. All in all, a decent smoke.

Goopy.

The taste started pleasant enough but 10 puffs into the bowl I got a chemical swathe on the tongue of outright terrible proportions.

Mild Very Strong Mild to Medium Tolerable to Strong

The good side is its not a super sweet gooier tobacco, its very dry cool and easy with the tongue. The bad side is its a single note smoke, with tons of "prefume like" aroma. The smell stay in you pipe for two days before fading... It does pleases the surrounding very much though.

Holy Apricots Batman! The pouch aroma is almost sickly sweet which was a bit of a turn off. Tobacco seems to be a solid black Cavendishl. I smoked this in a CAO meerschaum oompaul, I had premonitions of moisture.....It's definitly a wife friendly smoke but not something for me on a regular basis.

This is a Black Cavendish blend, but not one of the goopy, PG laden variety. The cavendish is Green River Burley, I believe, and is more of a very dark purplish brown than black. When you first open the pouch an intensely fruity aroma assaults your nose, and you?d be forgiven for being hesitant about putting it in your pipe. While the room aroma is very close to the pouch aroma, the smoke, surprisingly, is hardly sweet at all. Some of the flavoring does make it through to the smoke, but the main flavor is the tobacco, especially as the bowl progresses. The Burley base provides a good bit of strength for an aromatic tobacco. The main drawback is that I find the smoke a bit harsh, especially toward the bottom of the bowl, but I seem to have that problem with a lot of C&D blends. I'd recommend this to those who usually smoke aromatic tobaccos and those interested in trying an aromatic that provides the smoker with tobacco taste and those around him/her with a fruity aroma. A word of warning, however: the aroma may very well work its way into your pipe, so you may not want to smoke it in anything you're likely to smoke an understated, subtle tobacco in.
