From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cavendish Tobacco refers to tobacco that has added flavoring, or which was possibly subjected to heavy pressure in order to produce a sweet taste with a moist texture. American, Dutch, and Danish varieties involve the addition of flavorings; while British Cavendish brings out the natural sugars in the tobacco through pressure applied during the preparation process. Cavendish tobacco is named after Sir Thomas Cavendish.
The varieties of tobacco leaves most commonly used to create Cavendish tobacco are Virginia, and Burley.
The flavorings include sugar, cherry, maple, honey, licorice, chocolate, coconut, rum, strawberry, vanilla, walnut and bourbon.
I added information from wikipedia so everyone can understand the flavor and the process used to make cavendish, and what will go with it. Now with this flavor, it’s best to stay light. I started at 2 drops .04 grams in a 10ml, I got a hairy almost tobacco like taste, with some sort of perfume, Patchouli and maybe a dried fruit effect? and with 4 drops .08 grams, the “hairy” taste is almost gone, but still not a real tobacco taste, with even more perfume type taste. It’s not a stogie/cigar! No way, not in the raw flavor form. Will I take it higher, no, in fact, 3 drops .06 grams in a 30ml is better, less perfume, but tobacco hint is really light. This is better off as a background note, at least for me. So how to fix this flavor to turn out even better? Watch!

Dark Pipe, even tho the name sounds like this would become a heavy tobacco, it isn’t and cavendish is much better used in a blend than as a stand alone. with the support of the red burley and the virginia, it tames the cavendish down, but yet brings out the better dried floral and fruit effects. I enjoyed the blood orange and black cherry, but as yo can read above, you can add anything else to this. You will have to find your own spots, and at least for me, mine sat for about 2 weeks before I could adventure anywhere close to this “hairy” patchouli pipe tobacco 😛 Hope you enjoy my review and remember, less is more and in this case, less is better!
