|Now this is a very good Black Cav / Virginia blend!
The smell from the can is real pleasant. I can't put my finger on it though. Maybe a cognac or a liquor (very slight).
Upon smoking, I receive a peppery spice as dominate and a fruity cognac (orange?) coming thru at times with just the right balance. This lasts 3/4's the way down; until the sweet VAs kick in for an 1/8th and then the Black Cav finishes up the last.
All in all, this is a very mild smooth smoke with an aroma that is a crowd pleaser. A good party smoke where the "antis" would be comfortable. My wife says that it reminds her of another tobacco I smoke called, "Skilling".
Also, there is no bite, not even a sting. I could probably smoke this all day with no trouble. There's nothing wrong with this tobacco at all!...... ..... It really intrigues me.
This is a "very big" upgrade if your a candy smoker wanting to explore.
