Cornell & Diehl - Bradyville.
Supplied in a pouch, from bulk.
Quite a well rubbed ribbon, medium brown, and the moisture's just right. The main feature of the pouch-note is the brandy.
The smoke carries a definite aromatic character. If I'm honest the brandy doesn't come over as sweet, or flavoursome, as is often the case. From the brandy the bitterness of the alcohol beats any sweetness. The tobaccos have a pleasant enough flavour, though: a sweet brown Cavendish highlighted with rusticity from the Burley and some Virginia fruit. Brown Cavendish, NOT black as per description. If it isn't approached with care Brady' can burn fast and warm. But, it doesn't bite.
Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.
Bradyville? It's not a rubbish smoke, I've had worse, but it lacks the assets to raise the result from two stars:
