A strong tobacco for my taste, manly, rugged. The room note is tolerable. It used to be the chosen tobacco for the 2009 pipe smoking competition. I smoke it as a daily tobacco, since I got a big box of it. You need to be careful, you may get a bad taste if you are greedy, however with a good drink it makes a good adventure. The sweetness of the Cavendish is not overwhelming, it lacks the sauciness of aromatics, to my delight. It is important to dry prior smoking, since it may go out otherwise.
This Hungarian tobacco is still in production as in 2020. Produced by Róna LTD., Debrecen, Hungary. This is a blend of Virginia and Cavendish tobaccos, aromatic. Opening the pouch you can feel the nice smell of the cake " Gerbeaud"; walnuts, apricot jam and dark chocolate. It considered to be the best Hungarian tobacco according the Hungarian smokers. Using a small pipe and smoking slowly it can make the dinner perfect. Quite a strong blend, you can feel the nicotine kick pretty fast. Some malty taste resides later. Easy to lit and burning very well (Burley?). My wife can tolerate it and can recognize the "Gerbeaud" cake. Good stuff, something unusual, I want to enjoy it now and then. (I am not an aromatic smoker.)
Smell: Dark Chocolate,Cherry,Cognac Taste:The taste is pleasant,nutty. Strongness:You need to smoke it really slow because its a quite strong blend.The nicotine kicks in pretty fast. I recommend it but its not a must have tobacco.If you passing by in Hungary its worth a try though.
