Finck's Cigar Company Finck's Golden Cavendish

A blend of mostly flue-cured Virginias and some Burleys, our Golden Cavendish is mild and has just a hint of natural sweetness. Terrific by itself or mix it with your favorite vanilla, peach or whiskey tobacco to come up with your own mild, smooth smoking blend.

I never would of tried this tobacco if it were not for the untimely death in the family of an avid pipe smoker. Nearly two pounds of this stuff was willed to me when they were cleaning out his home. This was the only tobacco in his house and now I know why. I wasn't given any of his pipes but I may of gotten something better, my new favorite everyday smoke.

I had previously had tried a couple of Finck blends and they were pretty decent particulary when factoring in the low price.I didn't have very high expectations but then again it was free. I am usually very afraid of any blend with Cavendish in it's name. Thankfully there is none of the dreaded black stuff in here. It is an all light to medium brown shag cut mixture.In the bag it smells of mainly sweet tobacco to my nose.Upon lighting I was taken aback how good this stuff tastes. Mostly I taste sweet Virginias with the condiment Burley just poking out its head occasionally. There is a sweetness here that just seems to be natural but if you told me that there was a topping or sweetener added I would believe you but frankly I don't care.

As good as this stuff tastes it smells even better. I don't really notice any additive here just the aroma of good sweet tobacco. I love to just puff slowly and exhale it through my nose. Nirvana! This is not a complex blend.Just a good simple tasty tobacco that I can smoke bowl after bowl of without getting bored.It is also very well behaved and you have to puff very aggressively before the Virginas start tingling your tongue. The strength is on the mild side of medium and the nicotine content is probably not going to please those looking for a serious buzz. It's just right for my tastes.

I'm not going to tell you that this is the best blend to ever come down the pike or that it is going to replace your Pease or Gawith favorites anytime soon. I have much more expensive blends that I don't enjoy nearly as much as this.If you are looking for a very tasty , simple, satisfying everyday economical blend then I think you should give this one serious consideration. At $18.95/lb. this is my nominee for best value on the planet.

There are NO ORIENTALS as stated above.That is just a typo. This is mostly Virginias with a litte added Burley.
