Dark Virginia Cavendish (Pinning Down Cavendish Pt3)

  • Heavily Cased, rich butter cookie aroma
  • Very smooth and cool to smoke.
  • Distinct nutty dark Virginia flavour, with a sweet butter cookie & vanilla notes
  • Leaves a sticky coating in my mouth, burnt sugars & maple.
  • Bites if you smoke slow burns fine, but bites straight away.
  • Looses the Virginia’s flavours and is just sweet towards the end.
  • Burns very quickly
  • The sticky sweetness last for a long time.

Smokes well, very sweet but needs the added flavour. Sold with a chocolate topping, but could be used as an interest ingredient.
