Mild Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant

Carey's Black Aromatic. The smell of this leads be to believe that there is something other than the addition of Prune/Plum, something sweet, maybe Molasses or Honey? The whole of the mixture is very dark, mind you what should I expect as it is a Black Cavendish blend! There is no problem with it being too moist or too damp, it's perfectly hydrated. The pieces of tobacco are fairly small, not microscopic but definitely what I would describe as delicate! The size of the pieces makes for easy lighting, a match will more than suffice for this, a jet lighter really would not be a requisite! The addition of Plum is about the same as University Flake, for me though it becomes more apparent as the pipe burns down. The nicotine is mild in this, it is exactly as you would expect from a Black Cav' blend. The burn with this is quite good if you don't neglect your puffing but it does tend to go out quickly if it's not puffed often enough so I don't think this would be good to smoke during conversation as if it was put aside to chat it would become extinguished almost imminently! The temperature of the smoke is more towards the cool side, that combined with zero bite makes for a nice smoke to relax with. The room note is quite fruity and the room doesn't become too filled with smoke either. This is a pleasant enough blend but it scores three stars as it lacks that 'stand out' quality it needs for four stars!

Mild to Medium Medium Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

EA Carey's Classic Black blend is a mixture of Burley with two toasted Black Cavendish. The Cavendish gives "full" flavor to the blend; and a "Room Note" that at times was "Tolerable", as such it has become a "porch-smoke". This blend I found to be "wet", and needed "relighting" to finish. I live in Tacoma-Washington; with it's "cool and foggy" weather, and can only rate it as two star.

Medium Mild to Medium Medium Very Pleasant

This is indeed a classic Black Cavendish, with a pleasant aroma and not too much artificial flavour. I rated the strength Medium as the cut and casing makes for a fairly dense pipeful, otherwise I would have rated it medium-mild.

BTW, I rate most tobaccos I have tried recently as mild to medium, as I remember much stronger tobaccos from earlier times, such as Three Nuns (as it was 30 years ago!), so bear in mind my bias.

Smooth, not much tongue-bite. I found it lacking in any strong character or spiciness, but a very pleasant smoke.
