Carefully selected South American Virginia tobaccos steamed to give the right aroma and mildness. The natural tobacco flavour is enhanced through a delightful vanilla flavour.

Mild Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The vanilla has a deeply rich vanilla flavor without being syrupy. There's an extremely light honey toast note from the cavendish. No chance of bite or harshness, and no real nicotine, either. Not a complex blend. Burns at a moderate rate, cool, clean and creamy smooth with no weakening of flavor, and not much moisture left in the bowl. Has a very pleasant room note and after taste. An easy going all day smoke.

Newminster - No 201 Straight Black.

No. 201 is made up prominently of mid size ribbons but it also includes one or two chunkier pieces. The nose from the pouch is slightly aromatic but there's nothing to suggest a heavy topping. The moisture's good.

For a vanilla aromatic it's flavoured fairly lightly, unlike some of the sticky ones. The vanilla gives a notable flavour but it's still been added quite lightly. Something I love about this is the texture of the smoke: extremely thick. It burns even and gives a cool, bite free, smoke. I get a slight sweetness from the black Cav', but the majority of the flavour's Vanilla Cav and added vanilla. There isn't any tongue bite to be had from this, and as subjective as it is I doubt it could hurt anyone!

The nicotine from #201 is mild and the room-note's lovely.

A 10/10 beginners blend:

Highly recommended.
