Mild Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The black cavendish offers some sugar and vanilla. The burley is slightly nutty, and the Virginia has a grassy, citrus quality to it. The tobaccos are very much sublimated by the strong vanilla topping. I also get a minor sense of caramel, which would come from a topping, too. Has almost no nicotine. Needs a light dry time. Burns almost at a moderate pace, cool, clean, and smooth with no dull spots, and a smooth, consistent flavor. Needs a few relights. Won’t bite. Has a pleasant after taste and room note. An all day smoke. Two and a half stars.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Extremely Mild (Flat) Unnoticeable

I don't write a lot of reviews... and I'll be the first to admit my palate is not the most refined... But this may be the single worst thing I've ever smoked. Thank goodness I used a cob. I got absolutely no real flavor from this... except something chemical. Left a terrible aftertaste in my mouth. I was gifted this from a friend on the internet. I swear the blender should pay me for even trying it. Supposedly vanilla flavored, but I got none of that. I couldn't even pick up any real tobacco taste. Just terrible in every way. Smoked outdoors so no comment on the room note... maybe that would possibly be the only redeeming thing.

I got a pouch of this mixed in with a sampler I got from Sutliff (not the Altadis sampler from years ago). I can see where Sutliff was going with this Black Cavendish, their pouched version of BCA or Captain Black Dark but it is not nearly as good as either of them. The usual hint of Chocolate, vanilla and Molasses / Karo Syrup type topping that burned warm for me even though I smoked it tenderly and really has no kick whatsoever. I would much prefer the Lane Black Cavendish to Sutliff's (must be something to do with Herman Lane's method of curing) since they have more flavor and although mild they have SOME nicotine...

Purchased From: Free from a Sutliff employee

This tobacco is one that I thought I would like, the tin note seemed to have some promise, but what I ended up with was a fairly bland mixture of hot burning tobacco.

I really enjoyed this when I first got into collecting tobacco blends. But the more knowledge I aquired, the more bland this became. Easy on the tongue, but can be difficult to light due to the high PG content. This could be a great addition to blends that are missing some sweetness, but alone it is too simple. Crowd pleaser yes, palate pleaser no.

Mild Very Mild Very Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

I got exactly what I paid for on this one. Reclining back in my chair and opening this pouch was not the most exhilarating endeavor; however, I knew what I was getting in to. Pure black Cavendish tobacco with a sweat pungent aroma in a pouch is what I was looking for, so I will rate this only on the quality, quantity, taste, texture, and aroma. Let's start with the quantity, if you spent no more than $6 than you could hardly ask for more out of a 1.5 oz pouch. As I had expected the quality as right down the middle of the road, a little tacky to the touch but no detectable moisture. This turned out to be a very mild cool to almost no taste smoke to me, however I tend to smoke a strong English blend most of the time. After the first light and tamp down I did detect a stronger taste. I have nothing to compare the taste to other than to say it taste like maple syrup with a hint of vanilla and sweat rum. The room note was pleasant to me and most of my guest at the house that night. I will continue to smoke this till it is gone and quite possibly buy some more upon running low. The slight taste and sweat room note are worth it to me not to mention you might find yourself with a little case of tong bite and this would make for a welcome change to sooth those annoying bumps.

I got my sample today of these five blends by Altadis. I find this blend to be the same as Midletons Hines Mixture. But a bit more refine. Even though this blend has that Altadis casing that all their blends have. It works better with this one bt far. I really enjoyed. this one. If you are looking for a good aromatic black cavendish with no bite no matter how hard you puff. Here Ya Go Boyz. Nothing over the top with this blend. Juat a good medium aroamtic smoke with an anisette and choclate flavor. And for free it taste even better. Good stuff.

Very Mild None Detected Mild Very Pleasant

This one came in my Altadis 4-pack sampler. The tobacco is pitch black in color of varying cuts. It has a very nice odor in the tin; kind of vanilla cream smell.

It burns cool, did not bite my tongue at all. The room note is a definite crowd pleaser. I know there is something added to it, but I could not taste it. The first half of the bowl has no taste, but a wonderful aroma. Then the aroma fades and you can begin to taste burley. It's a biphasic smoke.

I'll give it 2-stars only, since it is somewhat lacking in flavor/taste department.
