Sutliff Tobacco Co. - Basin Street Blues.
It's quite a coarse ribbon, predominantly brown, with about 20% black Cavendish. The smell coming from the pouch is sweet, and it's only a touch too moist.
The flavour's nothing remarkable, but pleasant nevertheless. The leading character's a sweet, caramel, one. There's a touch of vanilla black cavendish, but nothing major. Of the two tobaccos the Virginia-Cavendish gives more flavour, being honey-like, and a little grassy. However, this is easily pushed aside by the toppings. The burn from Basin's cool, needing very little attention once lit, of a medium pace, and it doesn't bite me.
Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.
A good blend, worth three stars, but not quite four:
