The black cavendish has a nice vanilla flavor that sublimates the grassy Virginia and burley, though a hint of nuttiness will perk through here and there. The cocoa/coconut topping competes with the vanilla for attention, and sublimates the tobaccos a bit. Has almost no nicotine. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns clean and cooler than your average blend in this genre at a reasonable pace with a consistent flavor. It’s very similar to the original, though this a cooler, smoother smoke, with just a little less coconut. The only drawback is that it requires a little dry time, which is hardly the worst problem to have. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights. Has a nice after taste and can be an all day smoke. I rated the original at two stars.
