Nat Sherman Soho High Noon is their blend #518. A mild to medium aromatic that comes a bit on the damp side. A bit of drying is definitely in order before smoking it. It packs and lights easily.
The topping is not so heavy that you don?t get an actual tobacco taste, but you have to be looking for it or you will miss it. It?s another in a long line of ?Vanilla with chocolate and spice undertones?. Nothing remarkable. The quality of the leaf is a cut above the average aromatic bulk blend.
The room note is quite pleasant and not overpowering.
SOHO HIGH NOON: this is a flavored golden cavendish, cased with vanilla and something else. It could be a classic golden cavendish, cheap, a sort of OTC bulk. An all-day smoke. Well, in my opinion this cavendish is undistinguished, insignificant and quite disappointing, I would say mediocre, trivial. Too weak and light it does not affect in any sense. Simply banal. Moreover it is not only natural flavoring, but also artificial flavoring. Chemical additives are added. If you like pure tobacco, sure this is not for you. If you like aromatic and cavendish it can be relishable, but it is not the best choice. In my personal rating system (from 1 to 10), my score is 5 and 2 stars.
UPDATE 2018-12-25: Tried again. This is a classic OTC tobacco. A golden Cavendish full of chemical additives. A totally mediocre tobacco. One star is enough. Nat Sherman could do better. His cigars are better.
