This tobacco comprises white burley cavendish and bright virginia, but to a lesser extent. I had it on its own and to blend other tobaccos, and it works really well with latakia and orientals. It has a very nice roasty, nutty, sweet and caramelized b... Read Moreack notes. So far as I know, Odessa contains a portion of it, but there might be present in other CD blends. If you are finding it a little bit too one way street, try mixing it with other blending components and see if you like it more that way. I personally love it, but I think you need to have a few bowls to be able to fully appreciate it. Read Less
I'll start by saying that I struggle with Burley tobaccos usually. I continue to explore various Burley blends hoping to someday find ones I really like, but my go-to favorites tend to be Virginia and English blends. Now that you know where my tastes... Read More lie, I can tell you this is an okay blend. It didn't WOW me, but it was nice enough I'd smoke it again. If you're familiar with Lane Limited: Ready Rubbed, this blend is in the same ballpark. I've had many Cavendish blends (I like Captain Black OTCs for example) but there is little here that reminds me of Cavendish. In fact, isn't Cavendish a process and not a “cut”? So, the name alone is a bit confusing. No matter, they got the Burley right, which I think is the lighter, white Burley variety. It's nice and airy, not harsh enough to bite, but Burley enough to hint at cigarettes ever so slightly. Too much of that sort of room note turns me off in a big way, but this doesn't do that. It does contain bright Virginia, but other than a slight sweetness occasionally, the Burley is clearly running the show. The mechanics are fine, it easily packs and takes to flame readily. It burned away faster than I expected. Toward the bottom of the bowl I found I wanted to dump some ash (not the ember, just the pile of ash – Billiard smoked). It started to taste more like ash than tobacco the closer I got to finishing the bowl. For me, this is another (just) good tobacco that's just not what I'm looking for. Others may love it. There are a few Burley blends I've grown to like a lot: Morley's Best and Crooner are at the top of my Burley list. I even like the before mentioned Ready Rubbed, but Cavendish Cut Burley fell short of my higher expectations. Don't be afraid to try it and judge for yourself. I hope this helps. Read Less
