Cornell & Diehl Mixture Monster II
Description: C&D's Mixture Monster II is an aromatic blend of Black Cavendish and Cavendish. It is flavored with Apple, Caramel and Chocolate.
Strength: Mild to Medium
Tin Note: A distinct candy apple or candy corn aroma.
Tasting Notes: This is one of my favorite fall/Halloween blends. It has a strong tin note that might make you think that it will be an overly sweet smoke. To the contrary, it is has a mildly sweet and smooth taste that is very different from the smell in the tin. This might not be a good choice for an all-day smoke, but it is a really enjoyable fall smoke. I expereienced no tounge bite and the tobacco only needed a minimal amount of re-lighting. The tobacco is typical C&D high quality leaf.
Overall Opinion: I happen to love this blend, expecially in the fall. The taste brings me back to the old apple/pumpkin farms that I used to visit in the fall when I was a kid. A defintate hit for me.
