Affordable Pipes The CED's Blend

Unflavored black Cavendish has been added to Guy's Favorite to give it a little sweeter taste and makes the Virginias and Burley even mellower and milder. Perfect all day smoke. Pleasant pipe tobacco aroma. Loose Cavendish Cut.

I decided to evaluate CED's blend with a clean new briar pipe. (Which incidently I bought from the blender of this fine tobacco) That way, there is no interference from the lingering ghost taste of previously smoked tobaccos.

The tobacco is not wet like some blends, yet it's not so dry as to make it an intolerable smoke. It packs well and lights with ease.

CED's blend seems to have a flavor and aroma all it's own without the help of any casing or topping. I would call it a tobacco smoker's smoke. Upon lighting, I could smell a mild wood like scent that blended with a mild, nutty sweetness. The sweetness was obviously that comes from either the cavendish or the virgina. I couldn't tell which. Probably both.

The taste seemed consistant throughout the bowl, yet became somewhat richer as I smoked through the first half of it. I also noticed that if one smokes too fast with this blend, you will get a bit hot in the mouth. No signs of a serious tongue burn though.

This tobacco will not goop up your pipe and as described, it does in fact burn to a fine white ash for easy cleanup.

Overall, a decent smoke but it doesn't get too overly complex throughout the bowl. For some it may make a good all day smoke, but it's not something that I would probably smoke on a regular basis.
