Mild Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant

This is a pleasant smoke, but it is a mild/light experience. It get a little vanilla and rum. I can believe it is intended to be a custard flavor, and as I said it is pleasant.

The black cavendish gives it a thin quality, and I had a tendency to puff to try to get a little more out of it. There are a few tobacco notes - a little grass from the Virginia and a little nutty from the burley.

This one is a solid 2 on the scale. There is not much here to excite me. I have no regrets.

Mild Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The black cavendish offers a mild vanilla flavor, though I believe there's some in the topping, too. The Virginia is grassy, though it's fairly muted by the mild rum and custard toppings. The nutty, earthy burley is just a little more noticeable than the Virginia, and I taste it on a fairly regular basis throughout the smoke. Has very little nicotine. Burns at a reasonable pace, smooth and cool with no harsh or dull spots, and leaves just a trace of moisture at the finish. Needs an average number of relights. Has a weak after taste. An pleasant all day experience, though it does suffer from depth of flavor. Two and a half stars.
