My Smoking Shop-Royal Champagne.
The mix comprises both golden and black Cavendish, being a lot heavier with the brighter of the two. It smells pretty strong in the added flavouring department, straight away I think this may be more aromatic tasting than natural. It's good to smoke straight from the pouch as there's no drying time needed.
The smoke has a clear champagne taste to it. Any previous champagne blends I've smoked have been sweet but not recognizable as champagne but this is definitely identifiable as being so.
As the topping is quite heavy the Cavendish's flavour takes a bit of a back seat. Any Cavendish sweetness gets a bit confused with the extra taste from the champagne.
Royal Champagne has a minuscule amount of nicotine. It requires a really big puff to gain any recognition!
The room note is relatively light. There's not much added flavour and not much smoke. For his reason I find it agreeable to smoke in company.
I usually find My Smoking Shop's blends fantastic but this doesn't work too well for me. That said though, it's still not bad enough to get just one star!
