This was the blend I was going to smoke this week when I had company over as I remembered it being obnoxious in the room note department (which is what I was looking for) but after a year in the Ball jar the aroma has disappeared and the quality of the Virginia's used in this Black Cavendish and Burley blend are not high enough to enjoy without the topping. Not recommended although fresh it was better...
The black cavendish is unsweetened, and has a very light sugariness. I get a few nutty, earthy, woody burley notes, and some grass from the Virginia. The topping is a creamy, smooth butterscotch, but it's weak and surprisingly so because it does sublimate the tobaccos a lot. The strength and taste levels are very mild. Has almost no nicotine. Won't bite or get harsh, and has no rough edges. Needs a little dry time, burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent flavor, and leaves just a little moisture in the bottom. Requires an average number of relights. Has an innocuous after taste, and pleasant room note. An all day smoke.
Now this i like!To me this is heaven in a bowl.I can smoke this stuff all day long(and i do)It packs very well and stays lit all the way to the bottom. There is no tounge bit and no after taste. One of my all time favourite blends!
It's really interesting how one person can love something and another can hate it. I find this blend having a good bit of taste that falls between butter and nuts and some nice sweetness. This is to me very flavorful and a mild smoke. Now you have to watch this one as it can bite ya if you start puffing to much. Not a huge amount of smoke and again will burn hot if your a puffer. Sip this one slowly and get lots of taste!
Some hay from the Virginia, a bit of earthy nuttiness from the Burley and the Black Cavendish adds some sweet note. The topping is butter scotch as advertised. The moisture content was fine to smoke right from the bag as well. Not funky and I found the flavor to be true throughout the bowl. Very mild and does not bite. All in all a good aromatic for me. Not an everyday smoke but I do reach fo it weekly. Recommended if you like butterscotch
Pouch note is pleasant. Cut is medium strands of soft ribbon. Packs well and burns consistently. Did not bite at all. The flavor is exactly as it states as far as my taste buds. Light, buttery , and creamy but not like a butterscotch bomb. It left a pleasant aftertaste in my mouth. A decent change of pace tobacco for your morning cup of joe. I like a little variety myself in my pipes. Seems everyone here is all over the board on this one! It is a decent blend and worth a try in my book.
