Havana House - Windsor Breeze.
When I took my first sniff of the pouch I immediately thought "whoa, what an incredible smell": it has to be one of the top five smelling blends I've had! I'd be inclined to describe it as being more of a Mixture than just a Ready Rubbed: it includes big and small ribbons, as well as some broken flake. As it's been sat in the loose pouch for a week or so it's of a great hydration level.
The smoke has the same affect on me as did the pouch-note: it's of a very high quality. The flavour ground is occupied more-so by the fruit/citrus than the vanilla. I get a faint vanilla taste but I'd assume that comes from the Cavendish rather than a specifically added flavour. As well as a good taste of fruit, there's also a potent sweetness: this seems a little stronger than the usual one that comes from Cavendish alone. The mechanics of the smoke are great as well: it burns perfect, gives a fairly cool smoke, and doesn't bite.
An easy four star blend.
