E. A. Carey Broad Cut English Mixture

A more traditional, ready rubbed blend with all natural tobacco flavours, this mixture of well matured Virginia and toasted burley tobaccos creates sweet undertones of vanilla, chocolate and blossom fruit. This blend is pressed into cakes and rubbed up to enhance the natural aroma.

Carey's - Broad Cut English Mixture.

The smell from this is a bit of a complex one, I get a full smell of the tobaccos but there is also a sweetness there with a very delicate floral attribute. The blend includes a good few pieces that appear to be small broken flakes, they are not big enough to need a rubbing but they are definitely broken from a flake.

It's of a splendid moistness to get lit and once it is it gives off a lovely tasting smoke that is of a medium temperature. The flavour field from this is not at all hogged by the Virginia, actually it's the Burley that is the more domineering of the two tobaccos with a sumptuous nut and caramel quality. Also, like I found in the aroma, I note a very subtle floral addition, please be aware that I do mean VERY SUBTLE! This blend issues no bite to me at all but the smoke can become too warm if strained hard, don't take that as a negative as I find it's just simply an idiosyncratic feature of this blend... enjoy the taste, don't rush! The nicotine is of a civilized amount, it's neither weak nor strong so it will suit all kinds of smoker, be you a nicotine lover or a flavour only piper. The room note isn't particularly special, just a basic Burley one that is of a pleasing weight. I have often felt a touch nonplussed towards recognizing Burley in blends but this is the first blend that allows its creamy/buttery/calming qualities take the pre-eminent position.

Four stars.
