As a smoke on its own this isn't too good. The American Black Cav' from the same guys made for quite a decent evening smoke but this is far harsher in comparison.
From the pouch there's a slightly smoky smell. There isn't any sweetness to it, just this almost acrid aroma. This is the situation for the whole bowl when smoked straight: not a pleasing sweet Black Cavendish taste, only an acrid one.
After about five minutes smoking my first bowl I identify another problem. The heat. Damn this burns warm!
Even though it burns hot it's poor in the consistency. If it's not puffed with alacrity it goes out very easily!
There is slightly more nicotine in this than the American one. It's not strong but more mild to medium.
There are certain blending tobaccos that should not be smoked neat. Either because they're too strong, too flavourful or not pleasant. This is the latter! Not recommended.
