A pipe tobacco of international standard, this tobacco is double-fermented. You can recognize Troost Black Cavendish immediately by its wide range of colors. A mild, smooth, slow burning Cavendish, blended from high quality Burley, Virginia and Java tobaccos topped with the unique Troost aroma.

This is the only blend from the Troost range that I find to have enough body and flavour to be enjoyable for my palate (I have not yet tried Slices, though). It is highly aromatic mixture, contrasting in colour, closer to wild cut than to ribbon, but could be defined as a mixture of both. Compared to other Dutch black Cavendish ---namely Amphora?s and Sail Noir--- it is not as heavy tasting and monotonous as the former, nor as dense, sweet and syrupy as the latter. It has a rather flowery, bitter-sweet taste, not at all cloying.

In the pouch the tobacco comes relatively dry, easy to break up and pack. It does take some time to light properly, but once it does, it burns fairly cool producing a dull grey ash. When smoking the flowery aroma and bitter sweetness are still present, but they are enhanced by a slight walnut-almond like undertone, very palatable and elusive. It is smooth, and easy smoking. However, IMO the flavour variations tend to be so limited that after the first half of the bowl it becomes a bit dull, predictable. If you like tamed aromatics, with no surprises, this can be a good option.

I haven't tried the other Troost blends, but I'm quite happy with this one.

I got the 50g pouch from the tobbaco store, and to my surprise it wasn't a 100% black Cavendish (i assumed it would be given the name of the blend). The topping it's nice though, with a cacao (sort of) scent.

It's an ok blend, but sometimes i found it rather bland and also had some hot smoking related troubles.

I agree with Tantric on his comparison with others BC, this Troost is smoother, cooler and not so sticky-syrupy. I read on a pamphlet that flavouring is composed of plums and vanilla but I guess there's also something else and in any case it works well, the problem of this tobacco is its weakness of strength and body: after a few puffs it becomes dull, not unpleasant and surely very tolerable just... dull.

This industrial tobacco does it's job. It gives you a fresh and pleasing hour of piping. Still there are better tobacco out there, but for the price it's really convenient.

This tobacco is an enormous disappointment. First of all it is not only black cavendish but black and golden cavendish. The pouch description isn’t actually correct: the contents are all cavendish tobaccos and not only black cavendish, but also golden cavendish. Regrettably this tobacco is a sweet, a bad candy, disgusting, gross, full of chemical additives and sugar. The latter end is stinky. Terrible! It seems like an essence and not a tobacco. A black cavendish of low quality, unsmokable. Tobacco‘s taste doesn’t exist. Perhaps this stuff is ok for aromatic tobacco lovers but it is really unacceptable for natural tobacco lovers. I am bitterly disappointed and my score (from 1 to 10) is 1 and only a star.

Similar to Captain Black Regular, at an extra buck and with extra tongue bite.
