GQ Tobaccos - Trent Mixture.
A perfectly moist tobacco right out of the pack. The cherry topping comes through quite strong in the aroma, not as full as some aromatics but it's still easy to pick out. Although on the GQ Tobaccos website it says there is broken flake in there they are really fine pieces so don't worry about having to rub them any, the pipe can be filled and smoked right away.
There's no problem with getting a decent burn initiated, a fairly minor touch of the flame is more than enough to establish a good ignition. The smoke is really cool and very thick in construction and wonderfully complimented by the cherry addition. The cherry comes through brill' and the sweetness from the black Cavendish marries with it perfectly. Of all the flavours I find the Orientals to be the lightest, the sweetness of the cherries and the black Cav' tend to mask any idiosyncratic features from them. There isn't much nicotine in this, I don't think it would satisfy many N lovers but as this is more of a blend for flavour I don't find that to be too much of a problem. The added flavour stays at the same strength throughout, easy to identify but not so strong it becomes too much.
I think this would be a wonderful blend to begin the hobby with due to its mild strength, sweet taste and cool smoke albeit still a great blend for the most experienced of us to sit and unwind with. Four stars.
