This is a black Cavendish, it tastes and smells exactly like black cherries. This tobacco burns very clean and has excellent room aroma. This is another one of J.M.'s blends that have been around since the early 1980's.
I'm a big fan of most Boswell blends, and this one is no different. While I usually smoke English blends, Black Jack really hits all the right notes for me. It provides real tobacco flavor, yet isn't overwhelming as some aromatics tend to be. The rough cut (which I prefer) lights easily and stays lit. Good stuff, and one of my favorites.
While a nice aromatic, I did not detect any licorice or anise flavoring whatsoever. An ounce of this was included in the Autumn sampler that I purchased a few days ago. I was hoping for a little more licorice...
While it's not a bad tobacco, it's not something I will revisit. It just doesn't stand out from the crowd enough..
