E. A. Carey - Cavendish Mixture.
If you want a sweet and mild smoke, you've found it!
The pouch contains a blend that's primarily jet-black, but there's a fair few flecks of gold too. The nose from the blend seems very sweet; just like it states, it's laden with honey flavours! Mine's a bit on the moist side so I have to give it some time to dry; it's not soaked, but still, it's too moist.
The first words to enter my head upon igniting are 'beginners blend'. Oh yes, it's sweet! In all fairness though, it's not ridiculous; I wouldn't call it too sticky a smoke, but a sweet one nevertheless! Where the tobacco flavour's are concerned there isn't lots to say: I get 100% Black Cavendish, and absolutely nothing from the Virginia; not even a slight breeze of hay! Regarding nicotine, I'd feel comfortable putting this as being one of the mildest blends I've had: there's almost none in it! On the plus side though, it doesn't bite, the smoke's cool, and the room-note's alright!
For me it's just too boring; there's only so much Honey-Cav' I can take! A beginner might love it though.
