Bentley-La Dolce Vita/Planters Sweet.
The appearance of the blend is about a medium brown, there's very little of the Black Cavendish in comparison to the Virginia. The smell is pretty much as you would expect from the description, a fruity one with a slight touch of Virginia. The ribbons aren't too long, the mix includes quite a few very small pieces. The moisture's good but this was from a sample bag so it may have been moist from the tin, I'm sorry as I can't say!
Once this is lit, quite easily I might add, the flavour is just what I thought it would be from the unlit blends look and aroma. The main taste is of fruit. It seems to be mainly a citrus type, tangy, zesty and slightly sweet.
The tobacco flavour is mainly Virginia, I don't notice much Black Cav but I guess as the topping is quite heavy this will hide any idiosyncratic features from the Cav' as it only looked like a small amount of it had been included .
The smoke gives me no tongue bite and is of a good temperature. The smoke isn't too thick either and this is reflected in the room. There's not plumes of smoke but a pleasant fruity/Virginia aroma.
The nicotine is a medium quantity. Good for all types of smoker.
This is an okay blend albeit I couldn't smoke it on a regular basis.
