McGahey - Mandle Vanilla.
This contains prominently Burley and Virginia, with only specks of Black Cavendish. I can't say I was exactly thrilled by yet another Vanilla blend, but this is quite good.
For starters, it's nowhere near as sticky as a lot of Vanilla aromatics can be, I think that could be down to the lesser amount of Black Cavendish; a lot of Vanilla blends can be jet black because of the huge quantity of Black Cav' they contain. That's what makes this different; as well as Vanilla, my palate isn't swamped by the excess sweetness from the B.C; I get nuts, grass and hay, and although the Vanilla's tasty, it isn't too strong.
The nicotine's quite mild, not too much so, but I'd still personally put it into the mild category.
The room-note's quite good, but nothing spectacular.
Like I said, this is quite good! Not amazing, but still good.
