Blended of high grade Virginia and Burley tobaccos from Africa. To assure extra mildness a light Cavendish has been added to the loose cut. Vanilla and chocolate flavours are in front in this unique blend, with both adding to the taste and the smoking characteristics.

Mild Medium Mild Very Pleasant

The Virginia is grassy with citrus, which are common traits for many of this company’s blends. The burley has some nuttiness, though both tobaccos are sublimated by the toppings. The chocolate and vanilla aren’t deep, but they are a little more obvious than the nougat, and even more so than the hint of caramel. Has a very mild nic-hit. Won’t bite. Burns well, clean, and moderately cool with a fairly consistent flavor. Requires few relights. Leaves a minor dampness in the bowl. A fairly innocuous all day smoke that reminds me very much of the Stokkebye version, right down to the number 24. Two and a half stars.

Newminster - No. 24 Imperial Nougat.

Some of the blend is quite coarse, and there's also one or two twigs in the pouch. I can't fault the moisture, and the smell's nice: sweet, but not too pungent.

I think this would make a good dessert aromatic: it's pleasantly flavoured but falls below being too sticky, easily. The tobacco flavours aren't much to shout about, not that they taste bad, they just seem mundane. The temperature from No. 24 is nice and low, and the actual smoke is thick in build.

I like the room-note, albeit the place becomes quite clouded with smoke, and the nicotine's mild.

Not bad, not great, but a bit higher than being a two star blend.
