A light blend, ideal for the beginner, never the less the seasoned pipe smoker will enjoy the creamy toffee background aroma and a hint of cocoa.

Extremely Mild Very Mild Extremely Mild (Flat) Tolerable

Never before have I had to stop smoking a tobacco mid-bowl because it was so unpleasant!The smell of the fresh tobacco itself is appealing-reminiscent of cream soda and rather pleasant but once lit in a pipe the taste is really disappointing. If I had to describe it I would say a mix between pot pourri and baby powder with the occasional sour kick. The smoke itself was mild and thin- too mild (coming from someone who favours mild tobacco). I tried hard to like this tobacco but as mentioned I stopped well before the bowl was done- testament to the truly appalling flavour. I am in the uk where tobacco isn't cheap, so it's rare that I would abandon a fresh purchase so easily but the sheer displeasure of smoking this overcame tight budgets and has forced me to put this at the back of the shelf- fate to be determined in time!Seriously not one even worth trying to see for yourself, I would strongly encourage others to give this a miss to save time,money and foul flavour.

If you are a beginner like myself then this tobacco is ideal. It is extremely smooth, very very gentle on the palate and hasn't caused me any tongue bite yet. The Nougat is very obvious and this is an almost too sweet smoke. It does taste very much like sucking a toffee.

I think seasoned pipe smokers would find it very bland indeed, but for a beginner, particularly breaking in a new pipe, it is delicious.

The very rich toffee and cream provide much of what you will taste. There’s a light chocolate that lays under the other toppings. They sublimate the tobaccos to fair extent, though you'll notice them just a tad more in the last third of the smoke. The black cavendish acts as a sweet smoothing base for the other components. The gold Virginia have a little grass, and some citrus, though the citrus doesn’t peek out too often. The burley is hardly noticeable. The nicotine level is a little past the mild threshold. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns at a moderate rate if you give it a light dry time; cool, clean with a silky, creamy sweetness that never weakens. Leaves some moisture in the bowl, but avoids goop and dottle. Has a very pleasant, lingering after taste and room note. This aromatic is made for beginners and experienced smokers.

It has been many years since I smoked Kentucky Nougat. I guess it is still being made. I picked up about a dozen G&H blends from a UK website back before the English government threatened tobacco sellers with everything but death if they shipped tobacco overseas. This was one of the lightest (Nicotine wise) G&H blends that I ever smoked - and a top of the line natural aromatic that reminded me of Hazelnut coffee as I smoked. Each puff was sweet and delicious. The Virginia leaf was quality all the way and lightly toasted. After smoking my two ounces in the same pipe, I got the same effect smoking just about any other blend in that same pipe for the next two years. Yes, this blend leaves its mark wherever it goes.

This is a blend I haven't see available in the US. I got it from an overseas friend. Mixed with a bit of blending Latakia, this blend is top notch. Perfect sweetness without being overpowering or cloying. If you can find this, definitely give it a go!

Paired well with a morning coffee for me.

Kentucky Nougat. This has a very sweet unlit aroma to it where you can identify the added aromatics. Moistness is good, making it quite easy to light up. The smoke from this has a very toffee/cream like flavour to it which I find lovely as its easily recognizable but not too heavy for my tastes and it also allows for the Cavendish/Virginia's to be detected Nicotine content is fairly light and it gives no tongue bite whatsoever. The toffee/cream flavour does not seem to dissipate any as the bowl burns on. The room note with this one is nothing to shout home about as it is a fairly standard Virginia with only a very slight sweetness to it but still not at all unpleasant. It will suit those of us who are new to aromatics as it is not overpowering or it would be good for beginners.

I found this full flavored and very earthy. It came a little damp out of the pouch but after a little drying out is smoked well. Toffee and fruit can be detected and the further down the pipe you go the richer the taste becomes. Very nice indeed
