Similar to Irlandez (regular) but it is NOT a real cavendish to me. It is not as sweet as the regular, it has a nice plum taste and aroma. Room aroma is very nice as the plum smells nicely on this nice mixture.

Notes: Now is made by "Tabacos Cisne Branco Finamore", the new name of the old "Tabacos Wilder Finamore".

This is not bad tobacco. The pouch aroma is delicious. My pouch was a bit too moist, but after few hours of drying, it was good for consumption. It burns hot hot and it bites you if you are not careful. I would recomend buying this if you are willing to do your own blends. It's okay quality that can be enhanced if blended with some other stuff.

Pipe Used: Brebia

Age When Smoked: fresh from the pouch

Well, first of all must be said that I found this package lost in a luxury butchery in my hometown and it must be from sometime around 2005 or something, for cheap tobacco like this, long time definetely isn't a gift. The tobacco was very very dry and I used water vapour and a bag to add some moisture to the thing.

Named solely as "Cavendish" it tastes much like nowadays Finamores's tobaccos (in the end they are mostly the same, all of them, despite being presented in a huge pletora of brands and flavours) even presenting the same tongue bite and even more bitterness at the end of the smoke. The bigger difference I sensed at the smoke was a definite heavier presence of nicotine.

I don't know if they still produce this, if they do it would be smart to give a new one a try but sincerely, I don't think it will be of relevant difference. Not recommended.


After moisturing review edit

Surprised me a lot how that old, dry, almost cigarette like tobacco got back to life after some intense vapour adding sessions. It seems that "Cavendish" is the Irlandez tobacco that should labeled as traditional since that one is virtually "Chocolatty" as the Chocolate one. I can't feel any added flavours here, it's smells a bit alcoholic but not as intense as in Cisne Branco. Also sweeter and apparently more Virginia than the rest.

If i find a new pack i will try it by now..


Age When Smoked: 15 years

Is the "somewhat stronger" version of the Classic "Irlandez" Tobacco. It contains light and medium virginias and some black cavendish tobacco. in my oppinion, one of the best Brazilian Tobaccos.

After smoking my first pouch I was compelled on changing the review I've made previously on this one. Living in Brazil, where the pipe smoking scene is not very strong, one pipe enthusiast would find the search for an affordable yet pleasure tobacco really tough. This blend is definitely the solution for those people.

Of course it's not on the same league as some of the finest pipe tobaccos out there but I'm smoking this on a daily basis and loving it for the cost-benefit this one has to offer. As for the smoke itself, it can bite sometimes if you're not careful. Also the taste is very mild and the wife rating is pretty good with no complaints so far from the family and girlfriend. It's very effective if you want to sit back and relax after a stressful day at work or watever.

For what it's worth, I recommend Irlandez Black for all the Brazilian folks out there for it's price and overall quality. Also, it's good to note that this is not an actual cavendish processed tobacco whatsoever.

I was begining my tobacco experience when I trip on this.

I find out that Cavendish is a good kind of tobacco processing and I think that I should give it a try with Irlandez. Ok, I shouldn't have done that. Mainly because Irlandez Cavendish it is NOT a Cavendish processed tobacco.

Despite that, Irlandez Cavendish doesn't tastes so bad. It have a full heavy taste, but sweet. The smoke is ok, too. Serves well to fit an everyday smoke because it's way cheaper than the imported ones.

I was just a newbie in the world of the pipes when I arrived in a small tobacco house, near home, and was looking for a different blend, not the Irlandez I was always smoking, or the Candido Giovanella, another very popular blend in Brazil.

I saw the very different pack of Irlandez, and the "Cavendish" classification just down the brand. As I listened and red the older pipe smokers talking about cavendish tobacco, I got it to have some impression. Just love it. A different aroma and flavor mesmerized me, the nicotine injection was ok, and was what I was looking: a different tobacco.

Now, some years of smoking experiences, I know that is not a really cavendish, in fact it's a plum aromatic blend, that could be perfect if smoked in a small pipe and very slowly.
