The double-fermented Black Cavendish based on Virginia and Burley tobaccos delievers a uniguely smooth smoking experience with a distinct aroma of black pepper.

This is one interesting blend. I could not smoke it daily but it is so different, I kinda like it as a change of pace blend. It does have the aroma of black pepper in the tin, no mistaking it. it is a dark mottled irregular cut and a little too moist out of the tin but dries to smokable in a couple of hours left out. It packs easy and lights up pretty well, usually a two light start will have it going. Upon lighting up, one immediately gets the black pepper note in the air. it also has a somewhat musty aroma to go along with it. It tastes like a full VA with the overtone of black pepper on the palette. As it smokes down, the black pepper gradually lessens and the burley come out as the dominent taste. It is a real conversation starter, I took some to a meetup with other pipers at a B and M and everybody immediately noticed the pepper aroma and wanted to try it. Most liked it for a little while and then would dump the second half out. It does burn down nicely into a dark grey ash and leaves little dottle on the bottom of the pipe. It does leave a little ghost in the pipe but it burns off with the next bowl. I somewhat recommend this blend if only to try a truly unusual tobacco.

A very interesting blend. The tin gives off a strong peppery smell that one anticipates an equally strong and spicy smoke, taste. On the contrary, it is quite mild to medium in taste.

A black tobacco with a sparse sprinkling of brown mixed in. It has a tin aroma vaguely resembling cracked black pepper, but not spot on. It packs easily, but doesn't take well to the match. The initial flavor is burley, providing a thick mouthful of creamy smoke with a slight peppery aftertaste. However very shortly the topping takes over providing a medicinal/chemical taste. Some Virginia shows up halfway through the bowl adding some sweetness, but can't be enjoyed due to the industrial tasting topping. The room note tries to resemble black pepper, but use of imagination is required. After half a bowl, tonguebite rears its ugly head and continues till the end. I smoked this in three different pipes using various packing methods,but I couldn't find a way to enjoy it.
