Sutliff Tobacco Co. - Natural Cavendish #10.
A well rubbed out ribbon, that's mostly medium brown, with a few lighter flecks. This was cellared for about a month prior to opening and was still a little too moist, despite being loosely pouched.
The cognac could be ascertained from the pouch note, but not heavily. That's the way the smoke works: the cognac's presence can't be argued with, but it doesn't 'catch the back of my throat', like stronger alcoholic aro's can. The rest of the flavour's honey-sweet, and nutty. The burn from #10 is good, giving a typically cool Cavendish smoke.
Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.
Quite good, but seems mundane after half a bowl. Two stars:
Pipe Used: Various
Age When Smoked: One month
