Initial lighting I tasted a strong Virginia and a strong deer tongue. I love deer tongue, and that taste and smell faded away pretty quick.

I wouldn't even think about strength when smoking this blend, it's very light. The flavoring is weird. I'm not really getting a casing taste, just more of a lemon, Virginia kind of thing, with the deer tongue poking it's head in once in a while. The room note isn't quite as good as C & D's other deer tongue blends.

I kinda have mixed thoughts about this blend, mostly because of the lemon Virginia and lack of deer tongue. In the end a solid three stars.

Where does C&D keep coming up with such different varietals of mixers? I think the taste was a little on the full side thanks to the addition of the Deer Tongue (which I don't normally car for), but overall the blend did not fill the palate with what I consider a good smoke for me. It burned really fast, too, but never nipped my tongue. A totally different presentation that I've experienced in the past. Not really impressed by the outcome but see where some may enjoy this as the Virginia is quality leaf.

This was quite a disappointment. Frankly it was almost like smoking a cigarette. Simply no flavor at all. Room note was non existent and the burn was pretty cool. Just nothing there and never did show up to the bottom of the bowl.

I bought this because I was intrigued with trying Deer Tongue. I found the flavor to be quite odd. I like to retrohale, and this was not pleasant in that regard. No bite, gurgle , or nicotine. UPDATE: I threw the rest of this out, a first for me.

Interesting blend. Being a huge fan of C&D Burley based Deer Tongue blends (Gentleman Caller and Crooner) I decided to try their only Virginia Deer Tongue blend. New Market makes for a very nice smoke. Smooth, Mild, Light in the nicotine department and as aromatic as a non-aromatic can be. The lemon Virginia takes the forefront here. Sweet and mild. The Cavendish acts as a nice base, fills out the smoke well. The Deer Tongue however is very faint in the background. Adds that subtle spicy vanilla the leaf is known for. I think I would prefer a larger dose of deer tongue in this one but it is very nice as is.

If you like Crooner, you should PROBABLY enjoy this one too. I said probably, because here you won't find that delicious burley nuttiness... This one is OK, but a bit too mild for my taste. Even the deertongue seems more sparingly applied.

Give it a try if you like the weird green leaf, otherwise skip it.
