Mild double fermented Black Cavendish processed of selected Virginia leaf, superb flavoured from the addition of genuine vanilla. Fine sweet vanilla taste, soft and mellow.
Mild to Medium

Before you read on: this is a very sweet aromatic. If you don´t like them, no way will you like this one. That said, Karl Erik no. 11 is one of the sweetiest tobaccos I have ever tried. When you open the tin, a wonderful smell of raisins and rum hits you. The taste as almost fruity, with both vanilla and raisins in it. The room note is almost edible (smoking it in public, you can be sure people will come up and ask what it is). The tobacco itself is very mild, and it is quite difficult to say what could be the base of the cavendish. It´s practically as far away from cigarettes and cigars you can come and still smoke tobacco. If you like me like sweet blends (and I´m talking aromatic sweet, not naturally virginia sweet), you´ll love this one. If you like more natural tobacco, don´t even try it.
