Mellow Black Cavendish Pipe Tobacco
Notes: Pouch inscription: In an ancient house in Groningen, Holland, Franciscus Lieftinck started a tobacco business in 1820. The skills that he developed, handed down through generations, now bring you Holland House - a fragrant, sweet, slow burning tobacco that stands for perfection in pipe smoking.

There seems to be some confusion between this blend an Holland House Aromatic, so I have created a seperate listing.
This tobacco is mainly Black Cavendish with some Brights added. The pouch smell is almonds, caramel, licorice and liqueur. Once lit, the taste is mainly caramel and mild tobacco, with just the slightest licorice and Amaretto (almond) notes making their appearance. The sweetness is subtle, not overbearing.
The room note is very pleasant. Caramel and incense. Light, sweet and somewhat exotic.
This tobacco starts out very mild but picks up fullness as the bowl progresses. I found it more rewarding than most other Black Cavendishes I have smoked. Downsides, for me, are an acid or bitter taste and a mild tongue bite when overpuffed. Not enough to take away a star though.
Not a regular smoke for me but a very good tobacco in its genre.
