    A few people said that a Black Cavendish is a good intro toby, so this is what I bought as my first pipe tobacco. I smoked it for a few weeks, before buying some local B&M blends that were mostly Virginia/Burley/Cavendish blends. After smoking the local blends and going back to the Black Cavendish, I found it to be, simply put, unsmokable. I couldn't even finish half a bowl of it, and I was sick to my stomach the whole evening. I won't touch Black Cavendishes anymore. Anyone have similar experiences with this tobacco?

    It sounds like your local B&M poisoned you . SP Black Cavendish contains Vitamins and Minerals and trace amounts of snails and puppy dog tails , all good for growing boys .
    Honestly , I cant figure it . Anytime I've smoked it ... its always the same .. pretty damn good :th1:

    Rare is the tobacco that has turned on me so severely, but it has happened. Your tastes simply may have changed. I can't explain the ill feeling but if ever there was a reason to give up on a tobacco, I would think that would be it.

    I actually still smoke a couple oz a year of Lane's BCA. If a tobacco was good once, it usually retains some small place in my heart.

    Maybe it was a change in taste. Some of the B&M blends have Cavendish in it, and when I pick up on it, that unpleasant taste is there again. It's odd how quickly things changed.

    Perhaps you just don't like black cavendish in large amounts. Like I liked Captain Black until I tried "better" blends and now I can't smoke the stuff.

    Sounds like you have a disease.

    Look in mirror and make sure your nose isn't slowly turning upwards, and you no longer like any pipe that costs less than $200

    But my upturned nose helps me enjoy pipe smoking more! $200 pipes on the other hand... One Dunhill doesn't hurt, does it?

    Have you tried other Black Cavs? SP look to be a budget blend - perhaps you don't like smoking propylene glycol! I feel similarly though not quite so strongly about the Altadis Black & Gold Cav. By contrast, Stokkebye Dansk Black and Golden Dansk are still in my stash. I only rarely smoke them, but they're pleasant from time to time.

    I'm willing to give other Black Cavs a shot. I'll see if I can find any at the local B&Ms. If not, I'll see about the ones you mentioned. Thanks for the references.

    A friend of a friend smokes what I believe is a Black Cavendish that comes from a B&M in Lansing. The room note has a strong chocolate note. It made me reconsider Cavs.
