Lane Ltd. Black Toasted Cavendish is just what the name says, nothing more and nothing less. No toppings or casings are added, yet this has a sweet pouch aroma similar to molasses. In the pipe, this well-behaved product burns fairly quickly but cooler than expected; tongue bite may or may not be a problem depending on how carefully it is smoked. Smokes rather wet; I had a bit of gurgle after 1/3 bowl.
This would be a wonderful mixer, but on its own it is fairly boring. It does smell nice in the room, tastes sweet in the pipe and burns well on a single match all the way to the bottom with careful tamping. Note: Don't overload your bowl or pack this to firmly; it needs room to breathe, to avoid needing multiple relights or smoking hot. Left alone for the most part, it burns very well with minimal tamping. I am rating this a 2, as it is a simple, delicious albeit monochromatic aromatic tobacco. I will keep it onhand to blend into other tobaccos, but I don't think I'll smoke this otherwise. Just not enough complexity, flavor depth or mouth feel to repeat.
