|I got this along with a wad of other pure tobaccos with the idea of trying them neat and, maybe if it wasn't up to much, doing a bit of blending. Turns out "wasn't up to much" would have been a complement.
The packet aroma is that of boot polish. Actually the whole thing tastes of boot polish. Absolutely rank this stuff is. I didn't bother to note the packing, lighting and tonguebite due to the strength of the shoe shine. I did take to blending this with Turkish and Latakia, and it still manages to make everything taste of boot polish. Yes, that's right, even Latakia, and a good wadge of it too. It even managed to ghost one of my corncob pipes, how on God's holy earth did it manage that? I hate to think what would have happened if I'd smoked it an a briar.
Black Cavendish is described as mild and sweet, not just this SG stuff but all the stuff I come across. While normal Cavendish, stuff which, I assume, must be less fermented than this, may well be that (and seems to be given my experience with it, though I can't find it neat anywhere), this stuff is about as mild and sweet as getting whacked in the face with a marmite cricket bat.
