Mild Medium to Strong Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The grassy, citrusy. mildly earthy Virginia is the lead component. The mildly sugary, toasty black cavendish is effectively a condiment. The honey topping has some richness, but lacks depth. I don’t notice the licorice much, though at times, I sense a note of it. I had to concentrate to find any at all. The toppings sublimate the tobaccos quite a bit, though they don’t completely drown them out. The strength is mild, while the taste is just past that mark. Barely has any nicotine. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a mostly consistent flavor from start to finish that translates to the after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An all day smoke that is more routine than it should be. Two and a half stars.

At the time of my upbringing in England in the late seventies Radfords had two blends for the discerning pipe smoker; wild honey and cavendish. Both were excellent, I mourn their passing. I kid you not; grown women would actually compliment me on the excellent fragrance left lingering in a room where I had smoked. Our world now is a sadder, lesser place.

Pipe Used: Meerschaum

Age When Smoked: fresh as a summer dew-drop

Purchased From: A shop in Manchester

Similar Blends: Radfords is(was) unique. Please come back.........................

One of my fi rst tobaccos - I used to smoke tobacco like Radford's, Exclusiv etc. I liked it - sweet, good. But after I had tried natural tobacco - Dunhill, Peterson, Samuel Gawith - I realised that those tobaccos were much worse than the tobaccos I smoke nowadays.
