It Practically Smokes Itself
This flake is the most interesting looking tobacco. It is a slice of twisted Pressed Virginia Cavendish, with a tin note of vanilla or caramel or something in that range, but it’s very subtle. This is not an aromatic; however, the Cavendish process does add a hint of this Carmel, vanilla flavor to the Virginia. But, it dissipates quickly from the flavor and the Virginia steps forward for a very nice smoke. The sweet is a back of the tongue sweet as in a molasses or syrup, with nutty salty hints in there too. It stoves well in a small, tall pipe, but I prefer this in a medium, tall bowl for long walks in the evening or with a strong coffee on the porch.
It is a medium strength with light to medium taste and a mild casing flavor that diminishes quickly leaving an all natural smoke that burns easy.
Whether folded and stuffed or rubbed completely out, it burns well as is with little effort. It practically smokes itself, with no bite and a wonderful room note, or so I am told.
