Mild Very Strong Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The "tin" note is a very unpleasant overwhelmingly artificial vanilla smell, almost like someone dropped a vial of artificial vanilla food flavoring in a hospital hallway. Disgusting.

Therefore I was surprised that the tobacco was neither overly moist nor had an overly artificial room note. It smokes well, if not very cleanly (ash dotted with black remnants) and smells strongly of vanilla.

In terms of the taste, I don't enjoy virginia very much (this was literally the only tobacco they had at the corner store), but the flavoring does not have much of an impact, apart from the tobacco tasting quite salty. So if you like virginia and cavendish, this will do.

Take care not to inhale, I accidentally inhaled a bit of the smoke and it was very unpleasant.

To someone looking for something like this in principle I would recommend MacBaren's Vanilla Cream Flake over this blend in every way, even if that is twice the price.

The immediate smell on opening the packet is of dramatically sweet cloying artificial VANILLA. I may have wow'd and coo'd about such a smell in my younger more innocent days, but now as a cynical world-wise grumpy middle-aged old man it's a smell I could do without. It's like the irrepressibly cheerful person who "likes mornings" that you meet when you've dragged yourself out of bed with a killer hangover. Too much, too soon.

When smoking the flavouring is detected more by those around you, rather than the smoker him(her)self, and it's by no means an unpleasant smoke. The sort of thing one can forget you're smoking. So as a standby pack, when the rest of the cupboard is bare it's not too bad, and the price was very reasonable.

Golden Blend-Vanilla. This has one hell of a heavy added flavouring! I suppose, before I begin, we should remember that different blends suit different people! I actually really enjoy it. I don't normally smoke heavy aromatics, I'm more of a VaPer kind of guy favouring blends such as Dunhill De Luxe Navy Rolls or W.O Larsen Navy Flake but for some reason I just fancied a change of pace and what a change this makes! The smell from the weed is unmistakably Vanilla, think of that cloying smell that emanates from Butterscotch sweets. The flavour from the smoke? Very, very Vanilla, just like Vanilla Cream! The smoke is full bodied in construction, being fairly thick and palpable and it's quite cool in temperature. Tongue bite now, it doesn't give any bite unless it's really put under stress and it's still not too bad, more of a peck than a bite! There isn't a great amount of N in this blend, you can smoke and smoke puffing like a steam train yet your wants for N won't be vanquished, well mine aren't! I understand that this may not suit everybody, a few may even find it offensive however it has a certain charm that I love! Four stars.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

When you open the pouch the room smells immediately like vanilla. It's a very pleasant smell. The tobacco is not to wet and because of this you can smoke the tobacoo instantly without drying first.

The mixture of Virginia and Black Cavendish is approximately 60:40.

Lighting up the tobacco is quite easy and he burns smoothly.

The taste is not so sweet but mild. There is no burning on the tongue or on the gums. After a while the taste gets very dry on the tongue. The room note is very pleasant and it smells not only like vanilla. A little bit of honey smell stands in the room, too. So, I will recommend this tobacco to smokers who love a good vanilla mixture of virigina and black cavendish. But in my opinion I prefer the Danske Club Black&Virginia more.
