The sugary black cavendish works well with the vanilla topping. I sense a little cocoa and a couple drops of caramel in the background. Has very little nicotine and doesn't bite. Burns clean and cool at a reasonable rate with a consistent flavor, but leaves a bit of moisture in the bowl. Requires a few relights as it burns wet. Has a decent after taste, and is an all day smoke. Makes a good mixer. More of a two and a half star blend.

Century-Black Cavendish.

Although it says there aren't any toppings used the aroma from the pouch isn't the usual/standard Black Cav' sweetness, there is also a slight plum like note. This note is only apparent in the smell, there's no fruity addition to the smoke.

From the pouch the tobacco is in quite large chunks and surprisingly they haven't held too much moisture in. Quite shocking as normally I find chunky blends can often be soaked!

Once my bowl is filled and lit I'm quite impressed. I expected it to be a lot more boring than it is!

To begin, the initial lighting is very easy. A short touch of the flame sets it off great. And once lit the flavour is pure relaxation.

Again I find where it says no added flavour confusing. I get a vanilla flavour, albeit it's light but still discernable to my palate.

Another point in keeping with relaxation is the nicotine amount. A very mild amount.

I think the room note is good. Simple and not flashy but enjoyable nonetheless.

I find this blend great to relax with. Low nicotine, calm flavour and no bite.
