A little stronger compared to black cavendish but can still be used in the same way. A very versatile tobacco for tweaking existing blends or creating your own. Based on a pure burley blend with a few extra added sugars.

Gawith Hoggarth - Brown Cavendish.

Well, what a surprising smoke! This is more of a blending tobacco but I think you're missing a treat by not smoking this neat! Out of the pouch mine required a bit of drying time, we're not talking 'saturated' but it's just a little too moist. The aroma coming from this certainly is enticing, a sweet nutty Burley smell. The taste of this is like a nutty fiesta, I get a superb nuttiness with a scintillating chocolaty sweetness on top. Brown Cavendish contains a healthy nicotine amount, if I were to use this for bulking out an existing blend I would make sure what I were adding it to required 'N' ! A bowl of this burns superbly all the way through, coupled with the fact the smoke is quite cool it makes for a relaxing smoke. The room note from this is quite a delight, very full of flavour indeed.

As I said at the start, "what a surprising smoke", I really had no expectations for this when it arrived but when I took the first puff I really was impressed

Four stars, a simple one to rate!

Medium to Strong Mild Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

This burley cavendish offers a fair amount of nuttiness, toast, some vegetation, earth and chocolate, and a few drops of molasses. In the background is a persistent floralness which likely comes from one of the burleys as G&H has several varietals with that essence. The sugar topping certainly adds to the sweetness, and tones down the tobaccos a mite as a smoothing agent, though a slight rough edge here and there remains. The nic-hit is mild to medium when you start and ends up at medium by the time you’re finished. The strength and taste thresholds gather strength as well, starting out as medium, and passing that mark in the last third of the experience. No chance of bite or harshness. Burns cool at a reasonable pace with a moderately smooth, mostly sweet, consistent flavor all the way through. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant after taste, and a sweet, floral room note. Can be an all day smoke, or a mixer if it suits you.

Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

In a word, innocuous. This is a fast-burning, one-note tobacco. Of course, that one, slightly chocolatey sweet note could easily be one that you really like, and if so, this would be a good one to try. If you find it merely pleasant, this could easily be added to a hasher blend to calm it down. For me, I would use it in just that way if I had a number of blends to doctor or play around with. Home blenders should probably have it in their blending lab.

Medium to Strong Very Mild Full Pleasant

I smoked G&G Brown Cavendish a few years ago after finally getting a sample from my swap mate overseas. I could not find it anywhere on US soil. This tobacco is plain and simple a toasted Burley that has been sweetened just slightly. Imagine your favorite unflavored Burley that has been sprinkled by a light touch of brown sugar. And Lordy, this one packed one sweet punch in the nicotine department! Could be smoked all day, if sipped rather than gobbled. Otherwise, your craving for nicotine will be relieved in a hurry with this bad boy.

This is a great smoke both alone and as a mixer.

Alone: Sweet, nutty Burley. Unadulterated Burley flavor. More nutty than earthy, in fact, very little earthiness at all. Very nice. Has some strength to it. Very satisfying. Added sweetness is mild and to my taste just right.

As a mixer: If mixed with a sweet Bright Virginia it gets just a little too sweet for me. I like it better with a tangy Red. That's a great VaBur. It's also good with just a pinch of Latakia or Perique. Haven't tried it with both yet, but that's next.

I really like having some of this around. It's very handy for "repairing" blends as well as creating your own. I've used it a couple of times just to add a little sweetness or strength to blends that I found lacking with good results. This is now a must have for me. Great stuff.

Medium in body. Nic is med/strong. Flavoring (sweetness) is mild. Taste is medium to full. Burns very well.

This is a good 'un. Rich tasting, somewhat nutty and chocolatey, with just a hint of sweetness. Don't make the mistake of thinking it a pale version of a typical Black Cavendish; smoked on an empty stomach and one will soon find out it has its fair share of nicotine. There some flavour notes that can be found in GH's Kendal Mixed and Dark blends, I find.

Brown Cavendish is an honest, good tobacco that doesn't need to be blended to be enjoyed.
