Black Cavendish, some Vanilla, and a hint of Maple are combined to create a wonderfully aromatic, mild, smoking experience. The aroma is an elegant vanilla with a hint of maple. The room note couldn't be any better.

Superb tobacco. This was my first tobacco from 4noggins and certainly not my last. Every time I smoke 'Thomas Blend', I become anxious and anticipate my next smoke. It smells rich, full, and makes me take a moment to appreciate its smell. The smoke itself is smooth, round, and pleasant; no burn and no acidity. Its room note is pleasant and gets complimented. I plan on wearing its scent as a cologne, by keeping some of it on hand in a ziplock bag. This tobacco is excellent and say “quality” for me – relative to my virginia and virgin taste buds. Note: I've tried 11 different tobaccos, 7 of which were Virginia/Cavendish/Burley blends.

A fantastic Black Cavendish blend that smells like heaven when it starts to burn. 4Noggins says vanilla and maple but it starts to remind me of pie crust coming out of the oven when it gets going. I like to give it a little drying time (as one would expect with Black Cavendish) so it behaves well in the pipe, but the payoff for that is a long, cool smoke.

Its aroma in the package is very nice a touch of vanilla and maple syrup, I enjoy it more in a corn pipe because it is a mixture something hot but not burn you the language the aroma in the room is pretty special but is more like sweet toasted Walnut but not as a dessert but rather as a jam fine well-elaborated and different is that it recommend to buy

I think Rich is probably the best blender for my tastes. Every blend I've gotten from 4noggins has been of the highest quality tobacco and the work of a true artist. This one keeps up the tradition. I can smoke this blend year round. Each component plays its part but blend together to produce a smooth smoke with little or no dottle. A truly wonderful blend that I highly recommend.

Very pleasant and mild black cavendish with light flavouring. Vanilla is an undertone and maple is present throughout the bowl. No bite, good consistency of aroma and a crusty white ash. Although typically moist, it stays lit with no problems. Easily a favourite, beats an expensive alternative like Davidoff "Red" blend hands down. Superb offering from Rich Gottlieb.

Pipe Used: Winslow (Stanwell) briar 9mm filter
