This was one of several large samples kindly given me at Messrs Davidoff, who stock all F & T compositions.

I was surprised to find this less interesting, less vivid than GOLDEN MIXTURE. That tobacco has an excellent sweet tang, without bite. I thought this would be similar, but with some added body from the stoved. Not so. It is duller, and still on the shallow side as flavour goes. There is nothing offensive about it: it has good finish and first-rate burning qualities. It just doesn't taste like a hell of a lot, and, as a light experience, I prefer the GOLDEN.

Fribourg & Treyer - Evans Blend.

In the tin the black Cavendish appears to be a little outweighed by Virginias. The ribbons have been well rubbed and it's devoid of any twiggy pieces. The aroma's a simple, sweet Virginia, one, and the moisture's decent.

The smoke? As it has no real fortitude, or preeminence, it could be perceived as being boring. It isn't bad, just a little insipid! The Virginias form the majority of the smoke. In all fairness they taste good; more red Virginia fruitiness than bright Virginia sharpness. There's also a spot of breadiness from the Virginias. I note a touch of sweetness from the Cavendish, but no heavy gloop from it. Mine has burnt well, going evenly and leaving no dottle. But, I recommend a gentler technique to prevent the smoke becoming too warm.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: nice.

Evans Blend? It seems a bit nondescript, I couldn't identify a position in a rotation for it. So, it achieves two stars:

Somewhat recommended.
Pipe Used: Northern Briars Regal Gr4
