Very Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

The black and golden cavendish offer some vanilla and a touch of honey. Hardly much tobacco taste beyond that. The topping is a little vanilla and caramel. The flavor is fairly pleasant and comfortably smooth and creamy, but doesn't stand out much. Not much nicotine. Needs a bit of dry time, and will still leave some moisture in your bowl. Burns well and cool, but will require a few relights. Sold under other names, but always tastes the same.

On a road trip I picked up some SV black and gold because it was the only thing available in the area. Pouch note was very sweet, smells really good with hints of maple maybe? I was pleasantly surprised with a decent tasting smoke. Room note is pleasant but not over the top. Downside, the SV did leave a slight goo cake in my bowl. Not my first choice, but I've had much worse. Recommended for a cheap over the counter pipe smoke.

Super Value - Black & Gold.

Lately I've been trying to compile a list of budget blends, to see how much quality can be gotten for only a little money. Some Haven't been too bad at all, and similarly, I quite like this.

The blend has more golden/brown Cavendish compared to black. The smell from the pouch is very sweet, as though there's more than just the Cavendish' manufacturing process responsible for any added taste. The hydration's a touch too high, but nothing drastic, so it can be smoked from a new pouch without any airing time. It lights easily, and then gives a smoke that's a bit better than 'budget'. It's not up there with the like's of Cornell & Diehl, or G. L. Pease, but it's pretty good nevertheless. The main flavour's a vanilla one, it's louder than I'd have expected from the simple Cavendish curing process, it seems 'extra'. There's also a nice sweetness, this is conducive with standard Cavendish. I don't get much nicotine, I'd say it's very mild.

Although I enjoy the flavour of the smoke, the thing that I don't enjoy is the bite. This, again, is as I'd expect from a blend with added flavouring, not just from Cavendish.

Quite good value for money:

Somewhat rcommended.
