Dunhill -A-20000 Toasted Cavendish.

I was unsure as to how this would taste; the description suggests it's quite a strong aromatic, yet the current reviews not so much. Lets see:

The coarse cut mix is free from any chunky, twiggy, or leaf-like pieces. The aroma from the pouch implies a casing: mainly vanilla, and the hydration's perfect.

A-20000-Toasted Cavendish lights easily, and the smoke imminently concurs that there IS a casing: again, the vanilla comes over the loudest but there's also some alcoholic piquancy. Now, this alcoholic note isn't at all imperious, but present nevertheless. I also notice a subtle caramel trait, or maybe a honey sort of sweetness. At first light this tastes like a steadfast aromatic, but after ten minutes the tobaccos' make their presence known: the Maryland and Virginia give a wonderfully sweet-fruitiness. The Burley tends to be more of a background player: it can be identified, but the other flavours push it back a fair bit. Something else that 'seals the deal' for me that this is an aromatic is the tongue bite; after half a bowl I need a break!

I can't say I like the room-note much, and the nicotine's very mild.

This is an ok blend, probably great for beginners, but it won't be added to my rotation.

Somewhat recommended.

Identified by the seller as "Cavendish", seems to me that is not pure Cavendish.

It an "naturally" sweet and aromatic (no artificial) Tobacco; Is quite different, since it is not fully aromatic as a pure Cavendish or typical english mixture,

Is intermediate, since it is not similar to a pure, non aromatic Burley-Virginia mixture.

I recommend it for people that want a natural tobacco, but with only a trace or aromatic taste.

One interesting manner to describe it is: "show a weak flavour of Cavendish" but is not pure Cavendish.

After the fact, I found out this is the exact same thing as Lane RLP-6, but I paid more per ounce for the Dunhill name. This falls in that same camp as RLP-6 and Captain Black White, which means it has a mild nutty undertone, the faintest suggestion of bourbon and brown sugar, a tiny bit of spice toward the end of the bowl, and behaves fairly well. Probably be fine for a newb, because it doesn’t bite, but then just buy the less expensive Lane product! For me it just isn’t interesting enough to enjoy by itself, so I used it as a blender with some Burley and dark-fired.

If I hadn’t paid extra to help support the Dunhill luxury lifestyle, I might have rounded up to three stars, but no I’ll give it two.
