C & D's Trinidad (bulk) is a mild tasting non-aromatic smoke that should appeal to most Burleyphiles -- especially as a mid-morning smoke when less body is desirable. Unsweetened Cavendish supported by a shallow Burley flavor is seasoned to absolute perfection by deertongue. The Perique plays a duly restrained role, fading as the smoke progresses.

I do not find this blend to be particularly sweet. This is a dark, rather flat-tasting smoke, in a good way; and one where Perique (peppery and only somewhat fig-like) is used sensibly -- as a condiment rather than a main player. The deertongue is masterfully employed as a savory flavor adjustment without competing for attention. Overall a very interesting, well accomplished blend with a slightly saline and lasting finish.

Use a large bowled pipe and breath-sip so as to engage the nose and sinuses as much as possible, and this blend will release its gentle flavor: dark, earthy, savory-spiced, and absorbing. With Trinidad, slower is better. It is an easy-chair smoke that I enjoy with black coffee on a clear palate. I don't find it particularly appealing at the start of the day, or at the end of a meal.

Summary: non-aromatic; no lighting or burning issues; good smoke volume; smokes dryly; not especially sweet; light bodied; vaguely earthy or musty; occasional cigar-like notes; muted Perique and deertongue; mild nicotine hit; no bite; sip from a large diameter bowl; it rewards, but does not demand one's full attention.

This blend has a sour note and there is way to much deer tongue. The Perique dose not mix well. I know that this is used in other blends but dosen't seem to work here. The Burley sorry to say bites and again the deer tongue lays on the back of your throat like a wet wool blanket.

I thought this blend was quite good. I could not see or taste any Deer Tongue at all but my eyes are not as good as they once were. A very mild smoke with just the right amount of Perique to give it some zip. No one tobac dominates this mixture. Three solid stars for this one.
