The unsweetened black cavendish provides some brown sugar. The main star is vanilla with a little nutmeg and cinnamon underscoring the taste, though the vanilla lacks a little depth. Hardly has any nicotine. Won’t bite, but can get warm on the tongue if puffed fast. Burns clean at a reasonable pace with a consistent flavor. Leaves some moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights as the tobacco is slightly moist. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day smoke.
Here we have a very dark mix that gives off a spicy aroma unlit. It is of a good moistness enabling it to be smoked right away.
When it's first lit the added flavour that comes through is mostly cinnamon, I find it difficult to get much of the nuts/beans as the cinnamon is without a doubt the leader for the first few puffs. After about five minutes the cinnamon calms down and a nice nuttiness comes through at the same weight as the cinnamon. The smoke is of a cooler temperature giving no tongue bite even if strained. It burns well from the beginning, only needing a fairly short touch of the flame to set it off and then leaves behind it a white ash. Towards the end of the pipe the harsher cinnamon taste has really calmed down and the flavour is mainly a sweet nutty one. Black Spice is your typical strength in nicotine for a Black Cav' blend, quite mild so it's not really one for nicotine lovers! The room note is a very nutty one, it's one the best features of this blend!
This is a nice smoke once the cinnamon has relaxed but for the first part it is a tad too much and that's why it can't have four stars!
