I ordered this due to sheer interest what a "pure Cavendish" would taste like. Well..I doubt that it's pure Cavendish, it's mostly Virginias, with a bit of (brown) Cavendish, no black spots in the ready rubbed mixture.

Besides that the unburnt scent is intriguing and mild. Reminiscent of honey & bread. Came in perfect smoking condition, but I only had a sample of this so I can't comment on tin moisture. Although the moisture is low, it diddn't took the lightwell and needed 4-5 tries to finally get in burning good on first light. After that it burns rather steady and doesn't need too much relights.

As I finally got to smoke a bowlful of this I wasn't expecting too much, but got positively surprised by Copenhagen Cavendish. In the beginning of smoking my first bowl I got hit by a rich bready aroma, reminiscent of whole-rye bread. The honey is subtle, yet always there and it caresses the decently spicy bread notes very well. Honey and bread are the dominating aromas from this blend, and are underscored by decent spiciness and a very mild citrusy quality. Smoke is creamy, satisfying and has a slightly toasted undertone to it. Besides the honey there's no other flavoring to detect.

Even tho this isn't what I expected from the name "Copenhagen Cavendish", this is a solid and tasteful Virginia+(brown)Cavendish pipe blend.

What Cop.Cav. is not? It's not really what I consider "danish", as it's rather subtly sweet and the (honey) casing doesn't subdue the tobacco.

What Cop.Cav. is? It's a natural, very bready Virginia with a decent, but not overwhelming amount of honey-sweet and toasty Cavendish to it. A well done "danish-styled" that's in perfect harmony to enjoy it. 2,5 stars
Pipe Used: Clay Pipe

A very smooth and flavorful smoke. My tin is 8+ years old and seems to have aged very nicely.
