Ripe Virginia tobaccos, Black Cavendish and toasted Cavendish are combined to create a complex, mild smoking experience. The aroma is an elegant vanilla with a hint of cherry. Toasting the Cavendish locks in the natural sweet tobacco flavor and eliminates any tongue bite. A great mild aromatic as well as a wife pleaser.

WOW! Now this is what an aromatic blend can be when done right. Bag note is delightful. Easy pack, easy light, maintenance-free smoke. No tongue bite at all. Tobacco-forward flavor with a hint of vanilla. I didn't get the cherry note as described which is ok by me. Room note is a dream. My wife commented on her enjoyment which is THE ULTIMATE assessment as she is a very harsh critic. Just an excellent all-day smoke I will surely order again. Highly recommended

When first purchased I found too wet to be usable. Couple of smokes resulted in an unpleasant, hot and gurgling experience. I stored it in a half-full closed glass jar with a lid tightly screwed down (but with plenty of air left). Occasionally I would open the jar and sift through it to air the tobacco evenly. Two-three months later I found this mixture improved out of sight. The cherry aroma now came to the front, and there was also a palpable vanilla hint without excessive cloying. Did not burn like a heavy tobacco and was reasonably low on nicotine. Smoking was reasonably cool and also easily sustained (no relit required). Slight tongue bite but only from sheer greedy puffing. Will happily have more of the same again and will keep in a regular rotation.

Pipe Used: Venini (Italian briar) with 9mm filter

Having read the reviews I decided to try this blend. It is great aromatic. This blend is lightly flavored and the tasteof the virginia comes through. The room note is great. Clean burning and complexity in a aromatic that's a winner.

The combination of vanilla and cherry casing is very well done. You can smoke this in company, you will get positive remarks on the room note. And still you taste real tobacco.

It consists of the following elements: Virginia, black Cavendish and toasted Cavendish. This last one gives the impression to some that it has Latakia in it. It doesn't, but toasted Cavendish is the one that gives the natural sweet taste. It has a Vanilla aroma and a hint of cherry.

Very mild, without any tongue bite and a very gentle and pleasant room note. It can be smoked in the morning easily, no cough at all.

Thank you Rich for letting me know this one!

As with all 4noggins blends the discription was spot-on. I have more to try yet but will definitely re-order.
