This should be used as a blending tobacco. I've only had one Cuban cigar in my life. Brought back by a friend in the Navy. It had a full flavour that almost had a smoked meat aftertaste. Pleasant but demanding on the palette. McConnell's pure Cuban does taste authentic but I don't think anyone will like it straight, so I began blending...

I've found that it will work well with a light virginia at the otherend to pull the pile of flavour's out of the Cuban.

Then I sometimes add a slight pinch of Perique to reinforced and deepen the Cuban.

Burley's nuttiness didn't work for me as an ingredient so I don't recommend it.

Latakia(which is basically a light Virginia in my book) worked very well. Like adding cream to coffee. Again, drawing out the flavour.

Cavendish is a fine way to keep the original richness of the Cuban while it carries the notes on a pillow of sweet acrid mist almost.

My best blend so far is as follows...

One part Pure Cuban One part Light Virginia or Latakia Two parts Cavendish(Non-Cased) Pinch of Perique

This is the fullest personal blend I've ever made. Keeps you interested all night with a rewardingly deep smoke.

I tried once to cut a cigar in thin slices and smoke it in a pipe. The feeling is the same: awful. If I don't defenestrate this tin, I'll try to blend it with something else and come back with the results. [All my reviews/ratings are based solely on my personal experience/taste].

[UPDATE 05-05-10]: I didn't blend it, but I rolled some filtered cigarettes with it. Magnificent! (It's cut thin enough to do so).
