Slightly spicy sweet smell. Slightly moist, could do with a few minutes drying. Smooth, cool, fairly slow burning. Weak nicotiine wise, but very sweet, creamy smoke. Sweet, slightly fruity very pleasant room note.

Overall: Flavourful and sweet. Slow cool burning. Fruity and slightly spicy aroma.

Gawith Hoggarth Black Cavendish. First of all, I am fully aware that this is a blending tobacco, however for review purposes I am smoking it neat to enable me to pick up on any nuances. A negative point that jumps out straight away is the moistness: a bit too much but I suppose that as this is meant for blending it should't be that big a problem as it won't be smoked in its entirety. Once lit, the taste is a very full Black Cavendish one, as you would expect! Although it is full it's not at all harsh, quite gentle smoke which is also cool in temperature. Due to the gentle/unadulterated Cav' taste this would be superb to calm down a more ferocious mixture. Take into consideration the nicotine level: not strong, so if this is being used to make your own blend then be sure to include some Perique or something strong if you want nicotine! Although this is a blending tobacco, if used on its own it is still quite a calming pleasure!

I agree with Juna Gu that this is a very worthwhile mixer (I don't care for it straight, though). It goes very nicely, I find, with Gawith and Hoggarth's Curly Cut and Broken Scotch Cake - two tobaccos that are rather lacking in flavour and body; also with Samuel Gawith's Medium Virginia Flake/Golden Glow. It's fun to experiment with proportions until you hit the nail on the head. Expensive fun, perhaps, but fun nonetheless. It might be worthwhile to add some to Ogden's Gold Block, too, though I haven't tried that yet.

I bought this for mixing, but I've tried it straight also. It's good. A ribbon or shag cut, not too fine, packs easily, smokes easily. Doesn't leave much residue (I have dried it out a tad) except perhaps a little sticky white ash speckling the bowl. The taste is smooth, cool and the strength is quite acceptable. A good smoke when you are feeling a little delicate perhaps. I've smoked it mixed with Kendal Kentucky, which makes for a nice smoke. Seems to do the job well.
