A very mild blend, using predominantly flue cured Virginia but with the addition of some sun cured both to cool and sweeten the smoke. A rough cut into very coarse pieces also contributes to cooling the smoke.

Gawith Hoggarth - Kendal Scotch Cake.

This is a good smoke, good in all the areas pipe smoking covers:

The enjoyment begun when I first looked at the mix: it contains ribbons: big and small, and many sized broken flakes.

Although it's not topped, there's a strange perfume-like smell from the pouch; this is mild, and absent from the smoke.

If your searching for an uncomplicated blend, you've found it: it's simple to light up, gives a good burn, has a mild-medium nicotine amount, and the flavour is a straight-up Virginia one.

My only issue is with the temperature: it has to be tentatively puffed, otherwise it can get too warm.

I enjoy this blend, it would be a perfect Go-To.

Highly recommended.

Packaged in a rectangular tin packed tightly to form a loose "cake". The tin note reminds me of cigar tobacco. Pinching some leaf from the top of the cake worked fine and the tobacco has a nice consistency. The taste is all tobacco. I do not notice much topping. The smoke is luxurious and the leaf burns well. The bowl was consistent from top to bottom with no bite. I found the N level a bit high but manageable. A nice smoke if you want to depart from the sweetness of vapors, or the heaviness of aromatics.
