The dark and light Virginia cavendishes provide a little tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread and sugar. The sweet vanilla topping is more obvious than the caramel, and both are the star attractions although they don’t completely drown out the tobaccos. The strength and nic-hit are mild. The taste is a step past that mark. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. No rough edges either. Burns cool and clean with a very consistent creamy sweet flavor that extends to the lightly lingering, pleasant after taste, and room note. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An easy going all day smoke.
Seems like good quality leaf. Absolutely no tongue bite. No nicotine. Leaves a pleasant taste on the tongue. I get a nice, spicy vanilla note when I exhale thru my nose. Slightly stronger vanilla flavor than Lane Limited 1Q. Worth a try if you like aromatics.
The blend's presented as quite a well rubbed ribbon, it has a higher proportion of brown and light Cavendish compared to black, and although it's a touch too moist it's still smokeable fresh.
The smoke has a vanilla flavour to it, albeit not strong, or sticky. As expected from the appearance it's a lighter Cavendish smoke, not one that's swamped with heavy black Cavendish. The burn from it's reliable, of a medium temperature, and quite steady. Even if I strain my puffs I get no tongue bite.
Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.
Adirondack Gold: not a bad smoke, but a little boring for any more than two stars:
This is a nice mild aromatic, very appropiate when no more surpsises can be tolerated in the day. This is a cased tobacco, there is no question about it, but of high grade so some subtle tabacco taste is available, along with delicious notes of vainilla and the nuttiness of a fine burley.
This is a quality blend, but more in the simple espectre. So no combustion evolution should be expected.
Started smoking this first. Light smoke, very pleasant, burns well. It's been my go to smoke for the last 6 months as like a base line setter. It is a finely cut ribbon dark and tan. Smells like a light vanilla, and the burn note smells very pleasant
This tobacco has a very pleasant bag smell, taste, and room note. I'm not sure how to explain it... for some reason it reminds me of a classic/expensive cigar smell, with a touch of vanilla. The smell lingers in the room you smoked it in, which is a good thing with this blend.
I'm a very occasional pipe-smoker, so I'm not acclimated to nicotine by any means (nor do I wish to be). Of the seven tobaccos I've tried to date, this is certainly the strongest in terms of a nicotine buzz (stronger than Dunhill 965). After smoking it I feel quite nauseous, and it throws off my balance significantly. Must be a strong blend or something, whether they aimed for that or not. For this reason it isn't my personal favorite, but if you enjoy strong tobaccos - definitely worth a shot.
