The black cavendish has a little brown sugar. The Virginia is lightly grassy with hint of citrus. The burley is very mildly nutty.The Irish Cream topping sublimates the tobaccos, but is a little on the weak side. Has little nicotine. Burns a bit warm at a slightly less than moderate pace with a mostly consistent flavor, but needs to smoked slowly. Needs few relights, and leaves little moisture in the bowl. Has a very mild, short lived after taste.
This was a review I did years back but disagreed with so I reordered some to redo it.
Let's not beat around the bush, Irish Cream is a beginners blend. It's not quite as sticky or sludgy as some starter smokes but I couldn't see it making the rotation of the most seasoned of us!
The current description lists cube as the cut but my blend looks like a fairly coarse, dark brown, ribbon. The smell from the pouch is decadent, alcoholic and sweet, and the moisture's just right.
In the smoke, as was the situation in the pouch-note, the Irish Cream leads: coffee, vanilla and alcohol. The tobaccos give a taste that's not as heavy as a lot of full-on aromatics: there's some sharp Virginia, rugged Burley and honey-Cavendish; the smoke isn't exhausted by black Cav' gloop. It burns quite well at a medium temperature, but it can be quick.
Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.
Century Irish Cream? Yeah, not a 'bad' blend but there are much better aromatics to start the hobby with. My gut-instinct is two stars:
