In the world of Vanilla black Cavendish's I rate them in two categories. Shade of black and strength of Vanilla. The darker BC like this and McClelland VBC and Lane BCA seem to be much better quality than say House of Windsor's Argosy which was grayish black. This VBC is heads above most except the two I listed above which is saying a lot since the world is literally littered with Vanilla Black Cavendish blends. Not super sticky and not giant unmanageable chunks of gloppy leaf, this came somewhat dry and has a truly exceptional aroma. Classic pure vanilla scent. Sutliff produces noxious mixtures of just about any flavor you can think of to spray leaf with and those blends have made me gag after a puff or two. Sutliff Black Vanilla got the perfect Vanilla taste and aroma down pat with this stuff. I taste chocolate cake with Vanilla Icing which is exactly what I was wanting. McClelland's VBC has the Butterscotch down, Lane BCA has a great base but the 1Q type aroma leaves me wanting a little more Vanilla, that's where this blend shines. Aromatic where passerby's and others in the room will cheer but not sickeningly sweet. Dry for ten min on a plate, burns down to last 1/4 effortlessly and then dump the bowl, the bottom tobacco acts as a filter wringing out tar and goop so chuck it. Price is bottom shelf, very cheap. BTW this was Altadis Black Vanilla before Sutliff acquired it and used great leaf. Mix 1:1 with a golden Cavendish to make an AMAZING smoke!! == Its usually backordered at Pipesandcigars.com which means when you get it, it will be super fresh due to the turnover.

Another mild, pleasant aromatic. Like a lot of the other dark mild blends, this one has a spectacular room note, mild flavor and no bite. It's great for someone getting into the aromatic world, but it is missing some body. It's a little sticky, and even when dried it gurgled a bit. Not horrible, but I usually have to run a cleaner down the stem once or twice during the smoke. Overall, if you want something for the room note- this is a sure winner. If you want an extremely easy to puff all day type of aromatic, this one will please. If you want something with good flavor and body, you'll need to look elsewhere or add something to the mix.
