Very Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

Upon tin opening, the smell is instantly noticeable. Lovely aromatic cavendish with hints of vanilla and faint caramel.
Smoke is very pleasant although the smell does get a little lost in translation to taste. Every 10 or so puffs you get one that will really taste, a reminder of just what the tin smelled like. Very cool smoke, perfect for a beginner.
Room note very pleasant indeed, always getting compliments on it, even from non-smokers! Very vanilla-y.

Brown and black in appearance, mainly black. Coarse cut. The smell is strong and pleasant - sweet, heavy, spice and dried fruit. The taste is floral and spicy, but not as heavy as the smell suggests - indeed, a little lacking in body, which is why it only gets two stars.

As a new Pipe smoker I am trying all types of Tobacco to find a favorite, after reading reviews and trying many different aromatics, this was rather a good one! I am finding it hard to define all the different flavors etc however I could taste the sweet vanilla and was a great mild smoke, looking forward to trying others!

Medium Medium to Strong Very Full Very Pleasant

This is now my favorite tobacco and I am glad my lovely wife persuaded me to buy it . The scent upon opening it is prodigiously sublime ! It is so smooth tasting and without using facetious euphemisms I will simply say it tastes BRILLIANT . It has a wonderful full Cavendish taste and did not disappoint me . The burn is very steady and does not require re- lights . The smoke is really full . Try it if you have not as it is smooth ,soft , tasty and just lovely !

Black Magic is a bit of a misnomer - the tobacco is neither particularly black,nor particularly magic - just pleasant. In appearance the blend is a good mixture of light and dark tobaccos, but with a predominance of very dark cavendish. It is certainly aromatic, but quite dry, which in my experience means of fairly decent quality - not gloopy at all. In the tin it is very aromatic, slightly sweet but really indefinable, and this aroma is translated well in the taste. Ribbon-cut,it packs well and lights easily.The taste is mild and sweet, but it lacks a bit of body for my taste and the after taste can be a bit sharp and cloying. There is very little bite unless you puff it too hard and then the typical aromatic bite makes it's presence felt, but it's never a huge problem. The room note is very pleasant and drew complmentary comments from my wife. All in all a pleasant if not outstanding smoke, easy to live with but lacking any outstanding characteristics. Aromatic gurus will like it,heavy virginia smokers will not love it so much, but a quality aromatic all the same - just not one that I would reach for every day.
