|Bulk: Sweet carmel smell, like carmel popcorn. Grey black, various chunky pieces rough cut. Rather dry but not crispy, not sticky.
Packing & Burning: Clogged the airhole each time it was packed and difficult to get lit. Tool numerous relights and vigorous puffing to keep it lit.
Taste & Aroma: Straight: The smell fron the bag is not at all replicated. Not overtly sweet. Completely lacking in depth. Seemed to show promise of being dark and toasty but did not deliver.
Mixed: With a few VA blends, all that BC does is impart a dark complexion, obscuring the nice VA character.
BC does the make the smoke last longer, slowing the burn rate.
Overall: Go to 4Noggins bulk blending section for another description. If this is representative of burley cavendish, I can't see it as adding much substance. The aroma in the bag is not matched by the taste or aroma. The only thing it does is slow the burn rate. 3 stars, for what it is; two stars, for what it does.
