The finest qualities of our world-renowned flue-cured Virginia and light Burley tobaccos accentuate the natural allure of our light loose and ready rubbed Cavendish blend. Tobacco cut: Straight Cavendish cut. Flavor/Aroma: Exceptionally mild to the taste, this provocative blend reawakens the senses with its light, sweet aroma and natural tobacco flavor.

This is a surprisingly competent tobacco that supplies plenty of smooth, rich tobacco flavor. This Dutch Cavendish is unlike the rather bland and somewhat flat tasting Dutch Cavendish tobaccos that have been so ubiquitous on grocery and drug store shelves down through the years—this is MUCH, MUCH better!! What you get is the straight-forward taste of bright tobaccos with a little extra added sweetness. There is no complexity, but complexity is not the intent here. Natural Dutch Cavendish (NDC) is a very pleasant and quite satisfying smoke and in my opinion it is very difficult to dislike!

This blend represents a REAL value because at about $2 an ounce it is nearly impossible to beat! I recommend this one primarily for the Virginia and VAPER crowd. (I suspect that NDC may have only limited appeal for those who are committed to the more complex Latakia blends.) Otherwise, this is a must try!! And it is certainly sufficiently mild-mannered for the pipe tobacco newcomer. 3-stars+.

Rather suprising that a bulk dutch style cavendish of this sort has some appreciable nicotine. It's a bit closer to medium than mild in this regard. Dutch style cav's are generally very light. In fact, it seems to me despite the description that there must be at least some lighter dark fired leaf in this blend, slight smokiness in there. In line with dutch style it is very light in flavor with a very mild chocolate-like casing. The cut is a ready rubbed caked tobacco along the lines of the old Amphora, perhaps a bit chunkier. Moisture level was just about perfect with no noticable humicants, no bite. This should be a good mixer.

It always cracks me up when people say a certain blend of pipe tobacco tastes like cigarettes. I also smoke cigarettes and wish they could taste like this blend. Honestly, if you think this tastes like cigarettes then they either sold you a bag of "faux" pipe tobacco or you've never had a cigarette. I don't say this to be harsh, I say it to make it clear that it is IMPOSSIBLE to mistake this for cigarette tobacco.

The jar smell reveals some kind of topping, maybe vanilla. This blend, however, isn't heavily cased and you can taste the tobacco. I would qualify this as a lightly aromatic cavendish blend. The taste and aroma develop into a creamy coconut type flavor, and the last third is more reminiscent of a plain burley blend, but slightly sweeter.

A simple whiff at the jar will convince you it won't taste anywhere close to a cigarette.

...Quite a nice tobacco...simple, straightforward. yet it pleases all my senses. While it is a dramatic shift from the strong plug/flake tobaccos I smoke, it has made it into my top 15 tobaccos in rotation. This is one of those few tobaccos that fits under, "Less is more"... Extremely pleasant taste and aroma, and can be enjoyed in any size pipe...especially good with hot tea/coffee and in the evening with a wee dram of single malt. Certainly worth a try...

...a pipe is to be savored...

As a smoker who enjoys sail regular, and skandinavik regular, I find peter stokebye natural dutch cavendish to be very similar to sail regular, and a lot less expensive. It also reminds me of the old amphora regular, as well as I can remember it. It is a good flavorful all day kind of smoke,without all the goop and additives of some of the other brands like lane, and mcClelland's.Granger rough cut,sail regular,stokkebye luxury navy flake,and mcBaren virginia no.1, are the favorites in my rotation,although i've found myself smoking p.s.natural dutch cavendish 90% of the time. If you like sail regular,or the old amphora regular, this is the blend for you. I buy mine from for $12.50 per 8 oz. Natural dutch cavendish may become the only tobacco I buy in bulk in the future,except for an ocassional can of granger rough cut,as I enjoy a good burley with my morning coffee. I give p.s.natural dutch cavendish four stars.I've also found this blend to be bite-free.

This is a basic Dutch cavendish. I never smoked much Amphora Brown back when it was in every grocery store, but this is similar to what I remember. One of the other reviews said it was like Sail Regular, and that is true in terms of strength and cut. I find Sail Regular to have a slightly sweet taste with just a little oriental spice.

This is a good smoke, but it is nothing fancy. I got tobacco flavor, natural subdued sweetness and a cool burn. It is a combination that works.

I really enjoyed this Cavendish. Its name pretty much says it all. I was not aware of any casing, it tasted like nutty, flavorful tobacco. It's mild and doesn't pack anything beyond good tobacco flavor. I'll definitely use this one to temper some of my stronger aromatics.

The room note was quite pleasant, warm and nutty. The tobacco smoked dryly and never bit; even with aggressive puffing.

While my favorite Cavendish is Savinelli's - this one rates four stars as well.

A top notch smoke! I really enjoyed this sitting on the patio on a nice February, Houston morning. The Virginia and Burley mixed in nicely with the Cavendish to give a flavorful smoke from start to finish with no re-lights. This one definitely will have a spot in my rotation.

I have been a pipe smoker since 2003. It has taken me quite a long time to understand and appreciate the love some have for plain burley. My previous experience with Burleys was just the OTCs, which I understand there are some that are quite good. I decided to try this Stokkebye blend because I have had good luck with several of their other blends. I really like this blend. It packs well. Lights and burns great, and I finally get the subtle nutty and consistent flavor. This is a good smoke whilst fishing, doing yard work, and I like smoking this when I am playing golf. A good no fuss blend, with a steady burley flavor.

I'll keep this short. It tastes like a somewhat strong cigarette. I just can't tolerate this one. This is really the first Stokkebye product that has been disappointing for me. Gave the rest of the pound to a friend whom is trying to transition to pipes from cigarettes.
