Black Eye

When you get a black eye you probably wouldn't associate it with pipe tobacco but we figured it was pretty fitting for the next round of battles. The Black Eye battle consists of Lane BCA, a fire-cured and steamed Cavendish tobacco that can easily be smoked all day, and Peter Stokkebye's Black Cavendish, a smooth, cool-smoking blend with a super-pleasant aroma that can also be smoked all day. Both pipe tobaccos being an easy smoke makes this battle even more complex. Now we call on our P&C Faithful to help determine which is the Black Eye battle leader. At this time you can purchase both tobaccos at a low price and be able to smoke them side by side. Once you have tried them, come back and leave your review and tell us who the clear winner should be.

Lane Limited BCA Bulk
I thoroughly enjoy this aromatic, mild tobacco. Never a bite. Pleasant aroma. Buying it in bulk saves money and ordering it online is most convenient.

Great to smoothe out other blends
Very smoothe and light, I like to add it to my stokebeye navy flake to cool/mellow down the perique with minimal flavor intervention.

One of the best Black Cavendish tobacco's you can buy.
So I tried this after trying CB Dark, and reading numerous reviews about the two. I LOVE CB Dark. And now I LOVE Lane BCA. After watching and reading all the reviews and trying them both myself...I actually find the two pretty much indistinguishable. Maybe I don't have a sophisticated enough palate, but I've smelled the tin notes, I've smoked them back to back. Honesty- these are the two best examples of Black Cavendish I have ever smoked! I REALLY like this tobacco. I purchase BCA by the pound. I mix it with many other tobacco's, and it always enhances the taste and makes them smoother and smoke cooler. (As an example, mix it with your favorite Cherry tobacco and see if you haven't found your favorite "new" blend)! Lane BCA and Lane RLP-6 are the two best Aromatics on the market today, in my opinion - and I love nearly all the CB brands and have them in my cellar. But pound for pound/ dollar for dollar, you just can't beat Lane BCA. Buy with confidence.

Lane BCA
BCA is a very fine and flavorfull smoke with a nice room note. It even gives an open air pleasant fragrance experienced by my neighbors when I smoke outside. It's very mild, never harsh with none of the lingering tastes on the palate that so many other tobaccos I've tried have. I highly recommend trying Lane BCA, you will not be disappointed!

The best
Stokkebye’s 201 Black Cavendish is one of my go to tobaccos for my personal blends. By itself or blended with a variety of Va’s, Turkish , Latakia, or Perique it is consistently very satisfying and enjoyable.

I'm not a fan of this on its own but it makes a great mixing tobacco for other monotoned aromatics or English blends.

Very good, an under appreciated gem
This tobacco rally shines in a good, dry cob. The topping is delightful, yet underneath is a gorgeous medium brown Virginia that starts to shine halfway through. Drying this to perfection in a way that does not weaken the topping is a challenge. Your climate’s humidity means your mileage may vary.

Nice smoke
Smooth rich flavor. Burns well to the end. I am a fan of 1Q and this is a good smoke compared to it. Hard to beat my favorite that’s why the 4 star. Still, great smoke, no tongue bite, you will truly enjoy.

Mellow, aromatic, but good tasting.
This is one of my three favorite tobaccos (I’m willing to experiment, though ). I smoke Lane 1Q, Lane BCA, and Lane Dark Red. I enjoy them all equally, and always have a mixture of the three handy for one mutt smoke each day.

Best Black Cavendish around
All Black Cavendish tobaccos could take notes from BCA. The vanilla is subtle enough that you'll forget it has any, but the aroma and mouthfeel will stick with you for years. Top notch.
5 out of 5
Great Smoke!
Really great when I want a break from my first love which is non-aro Burley. Smooth with clouds of creamy smoke and no bite what so ever. I do personally feel that BCA is not the same as SP Cav in the bag however. I know, I know they are both from Lane but I find BCA smoother and I can get a slight bite from the SP Cav. NEVER from BCA.

Go-to Black Cavendish

3.5 stars from me
This is the third pipe tobacco I've smoked best out of the three hands down. I really like Lane's tobaccos so far. This for me has a cream/liquor smell to it from the "tin," same with the draw, and smoke. Smokes cool if you don't push it like anything else I've smoked and burns clean I suppose. A great tobacco.

Best of the basic Black Aromatic Cavendish mixtures for my money
Lane Limited's BCA (Black Cavendish Aromatic?) is a very good tasting and smoking tabak. I was smoking a lot more of this when I first purchased it, but I personally have been gravitating away from aromatics lately and towards the non-aromatics in general. I would definitely give this a try if you have not done so already; especially, if you have been smoking the more goopy and chemically-infused, over-the-drug-store-counter type aromatic Cavendish mixtures. Lane's BCA is quality.

Lane BCA
Been smoking BCA for over 35 years. Never found anything that tastes or smokes as good! Sure it’s a bit messy, moist, and makes you keep your pipes clean. Probably why it’s so satisfying. Been buying it a P’s and C’s for over 15 years, and when a problem comes up they’ve always made it right. What else need one say...

In my opinion, I t5hink Lane BCA is an excellent smoke, better than 1-Q. Better flavor, body, and taste. My only regret is that I didn't buy more of it!

This, by far, is my favorite pipe tobacco. It is smooth and sweet, never harsh clear to the bottom of the bowl. Even my harshest smoking pipes are tamed by BCA. I love this tobacco, could almost smoke this exclusively.

Love BCA!
Totally agree with the previous review title, "soff and sweet". Once it's well lit it burns well and a long time. Very mellow and delightfully sweet. Not sure why I didn't buy this for a while? It's way better than the others I've been trying. Must say I love BCA! As far as room note I think my wife's sensitive nose would really like it, but she says she can't smell it.

BCA
I've been smoking this tobacco for decades now. As a black cavendish lover, I've sampled other black cavendishes but always go back to BCA. Smooth and never bites and leaves a nice room note. It used to be a bit sweeter years ago and somehow the formula for BCA was changed slightly.
5 out of 5
Lane BCA
Smooth, flavorful, and slow-burning, Lane Limited BC-A is a phenomenal pipe tobacco. It stays lit, has an extremely pleasing room note that all but guarantees people reminiscing about memories of their dad or grandpa smoking a pipe. Paired with a high quality briar or a simple corn cob, this is among the very best tobaccos and my absolute favorite “go-to” bowl. Do yourself a favor and buy this- you won’t regret it!

Fantastic almost dry bite-free smoke, especially when filtered.
Quite simply the finest pipe tobacco I've ever smoked. Mildly sweet, great aroma, and no bite. I smoke it using a "modified" 9mm filter pipe. Have hand-crafted a stylish wooden stem-extender that accommodates a second filter, spaced several inches from the first. The "back-pressure" between the filters allows the lower filter to literally saturate with extracted tars … that never reach my tongue. The upper filter absorbs just a little. It is re-used as the lower filter in my next pipeful. Enjoy. Tony C.

1Q and BCA
I’ve smoked 1Q for a few years, Dark Red on occasion and like them both. A person on a pipe site said that if I liked1Q, I’d really love BCA. Then he added, mix BCA and 1Q 50/50...and thank me later. So I bought a pound of each and used a half pound each to blend. And just as he said, it’s fabulous!
5 out of 5
Great for beginners and beyond.
After receiving a pipe (Baraccini Churchwarden) as a gift from my girlfriend I had no idea where to start. I knew I should start with something light, but the first few blends that I tried (Lane Very Cherry, Cult Blood Red Moon, Sutliff Van. Custard), while nice, left my tongue bitten and my mouth feeling burnt. I wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong, if my pipe was less than optimal, or if I just wasn't cut out for pipe smoking. Then I tried Lane BCA. Compared to the burley and virginia blends I'd tried before it, the smoke was much cooler and burned more evenly throughout. Thanks to Lane BCA I went from ready to call it quits, to asking for a Savinelli for my birthday. Good stuff!

Best Black Cavendish
Call it a staple or call it a go-to---this fine blend rightly deserves it's perrenial status as the most popular black cavendish on the market. Consistently cool, mild yet flavor-FULL! To me the ideal aromatic. Equally versatile straight and as a perfect foundation for blending, but I do prefer it straight. Heads up to former customers of the closed Smokin' Post, Saginaw, MI: I recently learned from Jim, the former proprietor that BCA indeed is the blend that was known 'in-shop' as Black Hawk! Mystery solved after several years of searching!

Cigar smoker for close to 15yrs now, and decided to give pipes a try. I ordered a handful of tobacco's and this is one of the ones I really enjoyed the most. I have not tried using this in a blend of anything else (yet), but straight... it's a good smoke.
5 out of 5
One of the best!
Possibly the best I have tried. Good taste and smell, no bite. Might have to relight it just a little more often than ideal due to high moisture content, but for everything else you get from it that is not much hardship.

This has become one of my favorites. After buying a couple of ounces the first time, I bought 16 oz on the second purchase. Great by itself, but have even blended in some Navy Delux with it for a slight flavor change. Excellent service and friendly help on the phone when I have needed to call.

This stuff turned me into a Black Cavendish fan. I am hooked. I liked it some much I used it to blend with a bunch of my other loose tobaccos. It improves everything I put it in.

Simply the Best
I discovered Peter Stokkebye tobacco back in the late 1970's, and have been smoking it since then. With many excellent flavours to choose from, Stokkebye tobacco is by far the mildest on the market, whether your blend of choice is rich or more neutral. Always a big fan of PS-23 (Black and Burley), I have also loved Nougat and Black Cavendish as well. There really are no bad Stokkebye blends, and I can highly recommend any of them to anyone who wants to experience the greatest pleasure a pipe can offer.

Very smooth and tasty. A coworker turned me on to a simple blend he smokes, 2 parts BCA to one part white burly. It’s a really nice mellow smoke with no bite and a hint of vanilla.

Highly recommended!!!!
I read somewhere that said it takes the average pipe smoker three years to find "their tobacco." I haven't even been smoking a pipe for two weeks yet. But if there is a better tobacco than this stuff, then I'm in for a treat as I continue searching. And if not, then I need to be reordering this tobacco. This stuff is amazing. I was blown away on how it tasted. So delightful. I smoked cigarettes for 30 years with a short cigar kick 20 years ago. I really enjoy the pipe and this stuff will definitely be stocked in my home. Thanks to all of you who have given this tobacco great reviews. It helped me to give it a try. Time for another bowl.

Great Selection
I bought 5 or 6 different black cavendish blends at the same time so I could see which one I liked. This one was very good but I didnt notice any differences between any of them so I'm sticking to Virginia Gold black cavendish.
5 out of 5
Best Black Cavendish
This is a sweet vanilla tobacco, but not overly done. I use it to mix in small amounts with strong non aromatic burleys, or hot burning Virginia’s. I don’t smoke it by itself, but I can understand why a aromatic lover would.
5 out of 5
Fabulous!
This was my first time trying this pipe tobacco and now I know why it consistently gets five star ratings. Smooth and delicious all the way through! Also for a special taste sensation try mixing BCA and Scotty’s Old Red 50/50. I think you’ll be blown away with this combo! BCA will always be a part of my stash from here on out!

Lane Limited BCA bulk.
Not a seasoned pipe smoker but this is one of the best I've had. I like it better than 1Q which I really like also. Great aroma, no tongue bite, smokes extremely well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting an easy, nice tasting and relaxing smoke. Exactly what I had in mind when I picked up the pipe.

GREAT STUFF
Smooth but rich. Never bites. Toppings play well together and are never cloying. When I'm not sure which of the 6 different tobaccos in my rotation I feel like smoking, this is one I can turn to. I also use it for some blending. Can't really beat it, especially for the price offered by Pipes and Cigars. If you haven't tried this, go ahead and do it. I really don't believe you'll be sorry.

The Best Tobacco I Have Ever Found.
I searched for years for the perfect tobacco, one that smelled good and smoked good. Some years ago I found it. While I don't know what its store name was when I asked about it I found it was Lane Limited BCA. I have been buying it and smoking it now for probably forty years. My wife loves the smell as do most other people. I love the taste. It smokes well without tongue burn or bad after taste. I have recommended it to my other pipe smokers most of whom have agreed with my assessment.
5 out of 5

Yes, this is a refreshing, fruity and soooooo mellow blend. Your Gandalf of a blender did some great magic with this one. Keep it up guys!

It’s earned a permanent jar on the shelf
New to pipe smoking, and am working my way through blends and brands to discover what I enjoy and when. While some tobaccos lend themselves to accompanying my morning coffee and such, I find BCA to be enjoyed most as a stand-alone smoke - the subtle sweetness lingers when it’s sipped slowly and I thoroughly enjoy it. That my wife loves the room note is very welcome…..she’s polite enough to endure an English, but I’m polite enough to keep ‘em outdoors. BCA keeps us both happy.

BCA... mild and sweet!
Let me preface by saying I love black cavendish... and Lane BCA is at the top of the list. Mild and sweet, I smoke this straight and also blended with any number of burleys. After dinner, I'll fill the bowl of my favorite cob and enjoy BCA straight for the perfect dessert. And as a treat with my morning coffee (packed into one of my briars). This is one of my "go to" all day tobaccos; five stars across the board... give it a try!
5 out of 5
Just good.
In some ways, your typical black cav...mild, heady, fragrant, etc. What I really like about BCA is that it smokes well by itself or is great as a "blender". I like mixing BCA with Very Cherry for example. To my taste, its the best black cav out there and I always have it on hand.

Been smoking a pipe off and on since my days in the Air Force back in the 1960's, so I have a good idea of what I like. And BCA is something I definitely like! Mild and pleasantly sweet, smokes great in a cob. This is my "after dinner dessert" along with a mug of stout. For those who prefer stronger blends, this makes an excellent adder. Highly recommended!

I have tried over the counter tobacco and it was Terrible. So i ordered 6 oz bag of lane ( vanilla black Cavendish ) of which i ordered more just a few day's ago... And this tobacco is great no bite just a smooth smoke out of my Missouri Meerschaum Country Gentleman Corn Cob pipe. Thanks James

Black Cavendish smokers will definitely enjoy PS 201. Burns clean with no bite. Great room note. The taste is similar to BCA, but different enough to keep things interesting. Buy a pound... you won't be disappointed.

Too much hype...
I started out smoking Lane BCA, but have to admit it left me indifferent about smoking. Some of the experience was my fault, having needed to learn the basics of pipe smoking, but with help and persistence, I'm not afraid to announce my relative dissatisfaction with this tobacco. I bought a significant amount (substantial to me) thinking that something so highly regarded would be an all day smoke, but I have to admit my mistake. Other reviews have said it well, so I won't beat it to death, but this blend is just boring. It lights well, it smokes cool, but it is truly tastes unremarkable. I have learned a lot from smoking BCA, but am now the owner of an abundant supply of something I will likely try to avoid.

Among the Best
Very Simply one of the BEST. The Triple Crown: Dark Red, Black Vanilla Cavendish, and Black Cavendish Aromatic. Reaching for either of these three jars assures me of a wonderful smoke. Low nicotine, delicious flavor, and a very nice room note. Easy to light and keep lit, a very low maintenance experience. These three tobaccos in a MM Corn Cob is the way to go in my opinion. Makes me wonder why I have almost forty other tobacco jars filled and taking up space.

Smooth like butter... I have indeed smoked this tobacco all day long and no matter how much I "tried" I didn't get any tongue bite at all. Smooth, flavorful, nutty.... Superb in my experience. I'm new to pipes but have tried about 12 to 15 blends so far this is a winner..simple as that..

No tongue bite at all, one of my new favorites. Has a wonderful room note throughout the entire bowl.

Try something different
I have been smoking and enjoying both the Lane BCA and the 1-Q for a couple of years. I recently noticed that smoking the BCA quite frequently through the day, my throat was getting raw. So I tried something different just like changing lures when fishing. I mixed 50/50 of the BCA and the 1-Q and WOW. No more sore throat burn and a super great flavor. It even burns more evenly. I gave 4 stars for both blends. My own mixture gets 5 stars.

It's smooth and simple, no bite, takes a little bit to keep lit at first, but no gunk left in the bowl. I feel this is best used to mix in other tobaccos to mellow them out.

Smooth, cool
I started smoking a pipe again after about 30 years. I've been buying oz's of different tobaccos, I've tried 12 or 13 ones and the BCA is my favorite so far. I give it a 3, it stays burning, burns cool and doesn't burn my mouth. I like it. Good taste that doesn't stay with you for days and smell nice to others. I'd say 3 and a half.

Decent
It was okay. I enjoy it at night with a Guinness in hand and an old movie playing across the screen. This is the second tobacco I've tried under the Lane Bulk name and I have the same complaint as I did with the other. After a couple of smokes it has a weir chemically taste that sorta turns me off to smoking for a couple of days. It goes away and comes back intermittently .

Good product with a......distinct flavor!
I am on the fence with this one. Its not bad, in fact its rather good. However every once in a while I get a rather raisin like flavor and I cant stand raisins. It smokes great with no tongue bite and stays lit with little maintenance. Personally I wont be smoking this often or ordering any more when its gone but that is simply due to my loathing hatred of the vile and utterly disgusting blight on the world that is the raisin.

I very seldom smoke BCA on its own. I enjoy blending it various tobaccos. My most recent blend was Frog Mortons Celler. 2 parts FG to 1 part BCA. It adds a little sweetness to it.

Not for beginners
All the reviews are correct but for this beginner pipe smoker (coming over from cigars) I had a very rough time keeping a bowl lit, talking a dozen relights or more per bowl. I got the bag and it had water droplets in it so I air dried it over night, still can't keep it lit. Tried 1-Q today for the first time and was amazed that I wasn't as bad at pipe smoking as I thought I was! I will keep working with the BCA but 1-Q gets my vote for beginners looking for an aromatic to start with.
5 out of 5
Yep, smooth and silky, delish !
Yeah Yeah Yeah !!! "most popular black Cavendish on the market" and deservedly so. Try some cheap no-name brand, then try Lane BCA. you'll think you died and went to heaven.

BCA - A great blend
I have been using Lane 1Q as my favorite but after trying Lane BCA on my last 2 orders, Lane BCA just moved into first place. I also tried Lane Dark Red. After trying it in 2 different pipes, I tossed the 4 oz. in the garbage. When smoking the Dark Red it tastes like a chemical. It was like smoking tobacco from a "Windex" plant. Try the BCA, you will like it. It's smooth, no bite and you can smoke it all day. I do!

If you enjoy a delightful tasting - slightly sweet - beautifully scented aroma with no bite, then try BCA by Lane. I have used it to mix with other tobaccos for many years.

Fantastic. as good as all the glowing reviews. For me its a perfect balance of room note, taste and non biting flavor. I am thinking of blending it with a bit of MacBarren Navy Flake. It may add a bit more bottom for a more robust smoke.. but that would be like fixing something that already isn't broken.. Glad I bought it.

Easy does it!
I've been smoking straight Lane BCA for about a year now. I really love my pipe, and it's not unusual for me to go through ten bowls in a day. Alas, I have a somewhat sensitive mouth, and I'm very vulnerable to burn. But Lane BCA makes all-day pipe smoking easily do-able. It has a great flavor all by itself, and I've had numerous compliments on the room note.

Lane BCA Best Blk Cav
What can I say, except that it is about the best blending Black Cav anyone can use and many smokers like it by itself. However you use it, it never disappoints. When you have a toby that is "just too much" this may be just the trick to tame it down a bit and make the smoke super mellow :)

60% increase in pipe tobacco last straw
My old pipe shop changed hands and increased prices by 50-60%. I said so-long, and decided to try "Pipes and Cigars" via the web. I really wish I had tried them years ago. They have my favorite pipe tobaccos, prices are back down to levels I paid 10 years ago or more, delivery is fast, efficient, and I always get what I ordered.

Wow, I've tried a lot of pipe tobbacos,but this one was one of top five or so,at first Puff. I actually liked it better than the popular favorite Lane 1-Q. It was smooth and savory. I thought I detected a bit of vanilla. It has a very pleasant, sweet,and aromatic room note.

a good smoke for when you want to smoke while doing other activities
I can't add to the general consensus on flavor and burn etc. but have a few observations that had me lower the rating a tad. I smoked this in a massive Ardor Marte and after about 2/3rds of my way through I just started to get bored with the straight forward taste. Also even though this was a long smoke, a few minutes after I finished I didn't feel satisfied and wanted to smoke something else, unlike when I smoke my nightcap before bed I go to sleep one happy camper. Next time I will try in a smaller pipe. Due to its lack of complexity for me it's not a good smoke for when I can sit in my chair and completely focus on what I'm smoking and really savor that time, this is more of a car or around the yard smoke as what you see is what you get. Also it seems to me this would be a good tobacco to break new pipes in with

This is the mildest tobacco I have ever had! No tongue bite and nice Cavendish flavor. Pretty much what everyone else said!

Awesome Cavendish
I have been smoking Lanes BCA for over two years. It is a super mild aromatic that will not bite your tongue no matter if you puff it like a freight train. It has a fruit taste that is suitable for a all day smoke. It lights easily and burns evenly down to the bottom of the bowl. No matter how much I smoke it, I never tire of it's unique taste it has a pleasant room note and it never leaves a aftertaste. It it also terrific to tone down a harsh or strong blend. I have mixed it with Lanes 1-Q, Russ's The Cavendish in the Woods and also Carter Hall to mention a few. It is just a great all round tobacco that is easy on the wallet. Try it you will be pleasantly surprised. I keep at least 2 pounds of it on hand at all times. My favorite way is by it's self. It's a good, honest tobacco that is perfect for a all day smoke, when it is not convient to carry more than one blend. Great for deer camp or fishing and camping. It will jump start your morning coffee.

Lane BCA. All day. Every day.
I've tested most black cavendishes around, dumping money into it constantly for years, just looking for "the one" so to speak. Ultimately I landed on Land BCA. I still buy other black cavendish. But at the end of the day, I still smoke the Lane BCA every day. It's just my favorite all day every day smoke. It burns cool, I don't get tongue bite even with shorter smaller pipes. I smoke 3~4 grams at a time, big bowls, and it still stays cool (compared to other ovens that roast your tongue quick). Cool, no bite. No acid smells or taste. Just sweet, smokey cavendish. It's sticky when moist but not saturated. I buy in bulk. I keep a 1lb bag handy at all times.
5 out of 5
Mild and cut just right
My all time favorite was Argosy Black which I smoked for many years until it was discontinued. I then began smoking Sutliff Navigator Blend until recently when it also was discontinued. This tobacco, for my taste, is much better than the Navigator Blend, mild, the right amount of moisture and I also like the way it is cut. If you ever smoked Argosy Black and like it you would probably like this also.

Average to good Black Cavendish (BC). Not the most flavorful BC out there, but Lane BCA is pleasant. In my experience, its flavor profile changes for the worse after a couple months jarred. As time passes the flavoring because less full and it ends up feeling like a more dry and dusty smoke than I expect from a BC. Smokers Pride BC is cheaper and just as good. If you want a better quality BC, try MacBaren 7 Seas Black. This is an average 3-star tobacco, but I added the 4th star because this tobacco is great for playing around with making your own blends. I'm not one who blends a lot, but sometimes you end up with a tobacco that just isn't working on its own or is burning too hot or whatever and it needs some help to rescue it from the garbage heap. My first step when I end up with a "dud" tobacco like that is to mix in a little BCA...that normally makes it palatable enough to keep it out of the garbage. Recommended as generic BC, but there are plenty of others that are just as good or better.

Wonderful smoke.
I love this stuff. It is the coolest smoke I've ever had in a pipe; no matter how fast I smoke it. The taste is suttle and kind of had a taste of licorice to me. I'll definitely buy some more when I run low.

A Great Smoke
Seemed a little harsh when first lighting, but got better and better as the bowl went on. The pleasant aftertaste and fantastic aroma were some of the best I've had so far. Strongly recommended.

Cool as Boyd Crowder!
Good stuff right here! Cool, smooth, and sweet! Taste great. Burns complete! I smoke BCA by itself or blended with other stuff that needs to be sweetened or cooled a bit. BCA should stand for Burns Cool Always! BCA is the "Fonz" of tobacco it's so cool. Love this stuff! Did I mention cool?

not as good as cherry cavendish
I unfortunately didn't care for the nasty taste of this tobacco. I have enjoyed P.S. cherry black cav much more, but now I hear it's discontinued. I actually liked Admiral cherry cav better than this.

Worth it to smoke it.
Bought Lane BCA and tried it on a whim, by far my favorite caverndish aromatic. Its one that I keep in my rotation and would encourage others to try it.

A good
An excellent Cavendish to smoke by itself or mixed. Smooth with no bite. A great smoke first thing in the morning with a good cup of coffee. I use BCA in all my blends. One of my favorites is BCA, Vanilla Custard and Nougat. Another is BCA, Rum & Maple, and Irish Creme. I won't disclose my "recipe" but the point is that BCA makes it into all my blends. A good "all around" smoke!

To mild for my liking. Its hard for me to taste anything from this blend, more like bland. Maybe its because i have a cheap pipe but its still not my cup of tea.

Great smoke, great blender
I had originally bought this to blend with Peter Stokkebye Blach Latakia. The black Latakia was back-ordered, so I tried the Black Cavendish on its own. What a wonderful smoke: smooth, full-bodied, and sweet. Eventually the Latakia arrived, and, as expected, created a wonderful blend. But now I'm hooked on the Black Cavendis on its own, and I've reordered it several times, as a good early-morning or late-afternoon smoke. Great stuff.

Good Smoke....
I like it. It smokes well in the pipe I just got. Very similar to Captain Black Dark which is my favorite, but it is very close. I find the CBD is a little sweeter both as a smoke and the aroma from the bag. But I like the BCA a lot, in fact I'm heading up for my bedtime smoke right now. Plan to order more when I'm out.

Tell the Difference
I have been buying other, cheaper versions of Black Cavendish to use in blends. But, then I got a couple of ounces of Lane BCA and can really tell the difference. It has a full, rich aroma in the bag and never bites when you smoke it. Truly smooth.

Perfumy
It smokes fine, and the smoking quality of the tobacco is excellent, but it doesn't taste entirely "real." There is an underlying "perfume" that comes through.

BCA By far the best
Greatest cavendish ever.....BCA dominates the black cavendish world.....Always buy to smoke straight and to add an extra mellowness to my favorite English,..

A very nice tobacco
Lane BCA is a mild flavor full smoke. Can be smoked straight or mixed with other blends. I like to mix it with Lane I-Q.

Definitely a keeper!
As cavendish go, this one is great. Not usually a fan of straight black cavendish, but this one really stood out to me. It's definitely a desert blend, and I throughly enjoy it after dinner. The room note is magic, in that does not get me put out of the house :) my wife being the most stringent critic of the lot. Burns nice and cool,no bite or burn. Definitely a keeper if you are a cavendish fan!

My first Cavendish...
My first Cavendish tobacco. I love it. It smells so good, and has minimal bite. I mixed the remainder of my order with some Lane 1Q which compliments it very well.

A true classic!
A flavorful and inexpensive blend. For me there is no bite and it burns well. It really hits the spot when you're looking for something sweeter. One of my favorites!

excellent smoke
After some years I have returned to smoking the pipe and finding pipes and cigars on the internet was great. It's been hard to find shops that carry pipes and tobacco unless I visit a city,now I can find what I need and order from home. I also like have a number of choices. I have ordered multiple tobaccos and find the descriptions and visuals very helpful in making my choices, Keep up the good work.
