The gold cavendish has citrus and honey bread notes with a touch of grass. The toppings are mild butterscotch and caramel sweet, and is mildly fruity. they do tone down the tobacco a little. As cavendish tends to burn hot if puffed fast, you may consider sipping it, though it really doesn’t need to be babied much at all. The original has a little deeper flavor, but it’s bitey if you puff very fast, and can lose just a little of its flavor when that happens. The latter two observations are not true of the Match, which is much smoother, will not bite, and is fairly close in taste to the original. The flavor doesn't weaken near the finish or if you puff beyond a moderate pace, which can happen to the original, especially if the tobacco is dry. The coarse cut of the tobacco is the same. Both have very little nicotine. This is an all day mild product that burns clean at a reasonable pace with a consistent taste. Both leaves hardly any moisture at the bottom of the bowl, and need an average number of relights. Both have an okay after taste. Both are all day smokes. I gave the original two stars. This gets three because of the lack of bite, and it's smoother than the original.
