B.C. Cavendish, as the name implies, is a cavendish dominant smoking mixture. To the eye it appears tar black and sticky with only a few strands of burley and virginia poking through.
Cavendish itself is predominantly burley and virginia tobaccos that have undergone a treatment of high pressure and heat, the result being a sweeter and darker tobacco.
One benefit to this style of tobacco is that it burns cool and slow, this is why you will find it mixed through nearly all aromatic blends.
A most notable feature of the B.C. Cavendish is the Cherry flavour that is applied to it. Deep, sweet and tart are a few good descriptors, the tone being akin to a Morello Cherry.
This topping is truly unlike any other on the market, distinctive in its aroma and flavour.
Unlike many of its cloying American counterparts, B.C. Cavendish is more subdued yet still imparts a terrific room note that is sure to garner the attention of others.
As mentioned previously the cavendish works perfectly for this blend guarranteeing a pleasurable smoke with no tongue bite.
