A rich, smooth, medium strength English mixture with a good amount of Latakia, Virginia and black cavendish. Cool smoking and consistent flavor from top to bottom.

This is a very tasty medium unflavored cavendish English Blend.

I have no idea why this blend has not been reviewed as it worth a try for all Latakia Lovers who might like a little restraint.

What I like is that the unflavored cavendish cools the smoke while the Virginia and Latakia take a bow at some point. It's semi sweet and cool smoking.

There is a complexity here that is delightful. Perfect for a hot Summer Night although I don't think the Latakia content in it will chase any bugs away. For those who smoke in doors I don't think it will cause any domestic ruckus as it has enough flavor to satisfy but not enough Latakia to cause your spouse to throw you out.

Highly Recommended.

A very nice LatVa blend with just a touch of Black Cav. The usual salty/sweet contrast is noted and is very appealing. I think there may be a very mild sweetness added in a topping. The Black Cav is only barely noted in the flavor and seems to be used as a smoothing and, as clanobucklin noted, cooling agent. It's enjoyable and pleasant to smoke although it loses some of it's flavor toward the end. I give it 3.5 stars.

Mild to medium in body. Medium in taste. Very mild flavoring. Burns very well with a short drying time.
