A very mild and sweet blend with a fantastic aroma. The American Cavendish gives a soft, round taste. For the smoker who wants a gentle experience.

Paul Olsen - Gents (My Own Blend).

I reviewed this a short while back but because my opinion has changed thought I'd re-post.

It's a mixture, not ribbons: there's broken flakes, cubes, ribbons, and all sorts in the tin. It contains a little more black Cavendish than golden Cavendish. The seal's been broken a while so the moisture's good, but if memory serves me correctly it was decent when I had my first bowl.

The flavour of the smoke is a honey aromatic one. I don't know why it doesn't say so, but it's definitely flavoured with honey! It burns at quite a slow pace, and does so evenly. After smoking a bowl I'm left with a very pleasant aftertaste in my mouth. The only low point is if I puff too firmly it can become quite hot.

The nicotine's mild, and the room-note's lovely.

Gents is an easy three star blend:
