pipesandcigars.com Green River Black Cavendish

This is another very versatile component. Green River burley is treated with sugar water and toasted until the sugar caramelizes and the tobacco is almost black. It has a mild brown-sugar flavor and a slightly sweet note. In Latakia blends, it will mellow the flavor. In Virginia or Virginia/perique blends, it adds a warm softness, and it can sweeten burley blends without adding flavoring. Moderate in nicotine, average burn rate.

By itself: Very nearly flavorless with mild body and just the slightest amount of sweetness.

As a blender: It doesn't work very well adding sweetness to a blend. It does smooth out blends that are rough around the edges and that is the only use I've found for it.

Comes a bit dry with no stickiness. Burns well. Mild in body. Very mild in flavor.
