Fine Black pipe tobacco with the same great flavor and aroma as our popular Classic Black but with a fuller body and richer, more flavorful smoke and aroma. Cool and bite free.

This tobacco was not really for me. A little to strong for my liking. And was a little difficult to keep lit.

This is a good example of classic pure Black Cavendish. Rich and spicy, easy on the tongue, and not too strong, although the density of the cut can make a large pipeful a powerful smoke.

The coarse flake cut makes for a less even smoke than long cuts (at least with my smoking habits), requiring some relighting. But then that's part of the pleasant ritual, after all. The Room Note is very pleasing. Overall, a good satisfying smoke for the Black Cavendish fan.

My one serious criticism is that, as presumably the richest of Carey's Black Cavendish blends, this one lacks a really distinctive character. Contrast, for example, Amphora Special Black, or a tobacco locally available as "Zulu" which I think is by Brigham, both of which are immediately recognizable. I tried a sampler of Carey's blends which included mostly Black Cavendish blends, and found it hard to tell them apart, other than obvious ones like the cherry-flavoured.

Recommended but not quite 4-star.
