The black cavendish offers some brown sugar, and seems to have a little toasty quality to it. The deeply rich vanilla also seems to have a touch of caramel. The nic-hit is very light. The strength level is a hair past mild, while the taste is closer to mild than it is to medium. No chance of bite or harshness, and has no dull moments. The tobacco is quite moist, and may need some dry time, though I saw no need to do so. Burns cool, clean, and a little slow with a moderately creamy sweet, consistent flavor from start to finish. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, but no goop. Requires some relights, and the number depends on whether or not you give it any dry time. Has a pleasant after taste and room not. An easy going all day smoke that would make a good mixer, too.

Lane Limited - Vanilla Black Cavendish.

I'll begin by pointing out what you'd expect from a blend named Vanilla Black Cavendish: it's jet black, smells of vanilla, and is soaked! So be prepared for a long airing. The smoke's faultless though.

The vanilla's the most formidable flavour, but there seems to be an extra topping: something sweet. The smoke's heavy and sticky, in both build and taste. The tobacco flavour's one dimensional: clumsy black cav'. I don't think ANYONE would get a bite from this one! It burns well enough, but even when dried correctly the hefty casing can make it in need of a few re-lights.

Nicotine: very mild. Room-note: lovely.

My kind of aromatic. Highly recommended:

Four stars.

If you like BCA, and you like vanilla, you will probably like this. The vanilla note is very nice out of the pouch and fills the room, garnered an instant comment from my wife. The black cavendish is very moist, likely from the topping. It does burn fairly well however, and did not produce bite. Taste is as sweet as expected, the vanilla comes through very nicely. Makes a room smell amazing. Sure to please an aromatic lover, enjoyed this one quite a bit.

The richest tobacco I’ve ever tasted. It’s like Black Forest cake, but with vanilla. Jet black, dense, and packed with flavor. If I’m going to smoke an aromatic, I don’t want it to be apologetic about it, and this one fits that bill. Absolutely delicious.
