Mild Mild Mild Very Pleasant

The main component is black cavendish, which is moderately brown sugar sweet, and rather toasty. The grassy, mildly citrusy, bready, lightly honey-like Virginia cavendish is in the background. The vanilla topping has a little richness, but it is lightly applied, and doesn’t sublimate the tobaccos much. The strength, nic-hit and taste levels are mild. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a consistently, mildly toasty sweet flavor. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs just a few relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day work and play smoke.

I know i reviewed Champlain 6 months ago.... Well anyways, Champy is very mild as far as strength but does have a lot of Cavendish flavors with a vanilla topping that reminds me of CB Royal but not nearly as strong a topping. Looking at it right now, the blend looks like CBW with the added burley but again the aroma of CBR....Very tasty and unlike the previous mentioned blends, PG free (or very very little) recommended for aromatic smokers looking for something more natural.
