Golden and black cavendish to which a really fresh aromatic coffee essence is added. The result is a wonderful bowl of flavor which when smoked slowly hits the spot. To quote the manufacturers .... "a gourmet smoke".
Upon opening I was greeted with a fresh coffee aroma which really drew me in. The mix itself is mainly golden Cavendish with sporadic black Cavendish specks in it. Moistness is very good, it's just right and not too damp or dry making for easy lighting up with an even burn.
Once lit the smoke is divine as the coffee taste is as good as the unlit aroma, with a sweetness emanating from the Cavendish. Nicotine is similar to Gawith Hoggarth's Coffee and Caramel and it can be inhaled without hurting at all. I get absolutely no tongue bite, no matter how hard I draw as I find the smoke to be eminently smooth. The room note is not overly coffee like, more of a standard Cavendish with an extra sweet/coffee touch to it . It is more than obvious that this would accompany a coffee nicely but if you cant get a cup it will more than satisfy your coffee lust:
The gold cavendish provides a little grass, toast and maybe a drop or two of honey. The unsweetened black cavendish adds some brown sugar in a support role. The mildly applied coffee topping has a little depth, and a slight bitter note. Hardly has any nicotine. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at moderate pace with a fairly smooth, consistent flavor. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl. Needs an average number of relights. Has a pleasant after taste, and can be an all day smoke.
Cenury Tobacco is not well know, but they have had many nice (and mostly aromatic) blends on available for years. In my efforts to locate a true Coffee flavored tobacco I tried this one years ago and while I did not fall in love with the blend and ever buy more, according to my notes from years ago, this one did taste like tobacco and did taste like tobacco. I gave it a 7 out of 10 rating and in my notes mentioned that I thought it burned a little hot and that may have been due to the fine cut of the leaf. A broader cut may have helped.
