I had my first ever bowl of black cavendish (i think-it was pitch black) this evening. I've seen a few threads on the forums about them but have never really paid attention because of the odd dark look...i knew a terrible justification. Any way I'm curios as to what exactly i was smoking, the blend was from Jerris Fine Wine and Tobaco in Colorado, the name was: Black Coral A rich Green River Burley-based blend with a lip-smacking taste of real vanilla. So...are there a million black cavendish blends out there similar to the many "cherry" or "straight Virginia" blends? I haven't seen much attention be paid to this new dark friend of mine...am i simply out of the loop? Anyway, i was just curious if this blend sounds pretty typical of a black cavendish or what else they have to offer. Also, the leaf was cut outrageously fine...almost like pouring sugar into my pipe. I actually liked this aspect as it burned well and as i smoke pretty bent pipes i didn't have a problem sucking any through the stem. What's your thoughts on this type of tobacco? Good, bad, nice change of pace? Thanks, Brian EDIT: Also, are there ghosting issues with this stuff or not? I see its burley based but the only other burley i've had was ready rubbed and a cloudy brown so i assume it different...right?
