Sutliff Black Kathy

Sutliff Black Kathy is a unique black Cavendish and has been popular for many years. What makes it different than most American black Cavendishes is that it consists of toasted Burley (which is the usual tobacco used in the US, and toasted Virginia (which is what's commonly used in Europe). The tobaccos are then steamed and finished with a combination of a few different types of warm vanilla flavor for subtle flavor and an amazing aroma. If you like black Cavendish, you should really try Sutliff Black Kathy.

Nice and mild
I find this is very mild. It is a great when also blended. Mix equal parts with Sutcliff custard for a really great smoke. Also with stoke black cav. This is my go to Prime tabacco. Very well priced for the quality.

Solid Black Cav
A fairly straight forward black cavendish that delivers solid flavor from start to finish. Plenty of vanilla and fruity(?) notes as well (at least to my palate). If you like black cavendish, this is worth checking out!

I very much enjoy smoking Black Kathy. I have, to this date, liked all the Sutliff tobaccos I have tried.

I love, love, love it!!!
I absolutely love Black Kathy. It equals the flavor of the best black cavendishes I have ever tried. It is delightful through and through. This is my first order and I smoked straight through it until it was gone. Such a great flavor and rich smoke. I’m not a pipe tobacco expert but I know what I like and I love Black Kathy. If you love a sweet smith black cavendish like I do you’ll definitely live this one. Try it, you’ll be glad you did and be back for more!

A smooth and pleasant smoke
Black Kathy has nearly everything I look for in a satisfying tobacco. It packs well, stays lit, no bite and provides a pleasant room note. I rate the flavor of Lane BCA above Black Kathy but that is a high bar to reach.

Good stuff
This is still the aromatic that I measure all others by. Haven't found one better yet.

Don't buy it, it's too good!
Black Kathy is my new girl (shh, don't tell my wife) and don't tell all the others that might buy it. She's mine, all mine! Seriously if you're looking for a easy smoker without a bite, this is the one for you. I don't think you Should buy it 'cause I want it all for myself, so don't buy it, don't do it!

Great mixer, okay by itself
I ordered 16 ounces by mistake. Nice mild flavor but not overly Inspiring. Then I mixed it with some very cherry; toned down the cherry, brightens the Kathy!

My new Favorite
Black Kathy is a cool, slow-burning smoke that offers a delicious hint of vanilla and pleasing aroma.

Not quite what I had hoped
I was hoping for a good flavor and good aroma. The flavor was OK but very little aroma.

Reluctantly so far . . . let down . . .
By the glowing reviews, apparent demand and scarcity of retailers carrying this blend, I was in high hopes that Black Kathy might prove to be the ultimate black cavendish I've been in search of to float my boat. Thus far Black Kathy's flavor strikes me as somewhat heavy and indistinct, if not vaguely muddy with a nuance of anise. But don't get me wrong. While I haven't necessarily given up on it altogether, so far my reluctantly mediocre assessment at 2 1/2 stars still leaves me unpersuaded to make a repeat purchase.

now a favorite
I originally bought an ounce of this to soon as I opened and smelled the bag note I knew this was no ordinary aro. I first smoked in one of my briar pipes and it smelled amazing, but burned kind of hot so next time I tried in one of my pear pipes and it smoked like a dream with zero bite. The flavor came through in the smoke & the room note was insanely delicious! Stayed lit the whole time and I was not constantly puffing either. This also blended very well with Dark Kentucky and Bright Virginia. In the next order I ended up purchasing another five ounces of this addicting Black Kathy.

my favorite
I have been smoking Black Kathy for years and it has remained my favorite. I used to buy it at a local shop but P&C has it for almost half the price and it seems fresher. I don't like the long shipping time, but I am too cheap to pay for expedited shipping :)

Nice mild smoke
Black Kathy is a nice mild smoke, no aftertaste , pleasant aroma, quality tobacco. Reignites even after extended breaks between puffs.
Customer Testimonials
Sutliff Black Kathy is a great smoke! Very mild, but certainly not tasteless like some aromatics tend to be. It has a sweet note to it, somewhat like Molto Dolce. Definitely one of the best aromatics I've had the pleasure of smoking.
CS of Eden Prairie, MN
The above review is what made me order Black Kathy and it was spot on! Mild and very aromatic Vanilla Black Cavendish with a delightful flavor and aroma. Inexpensive but not cheap, you will be very surprised at the quality. Smoked by itself or half and half with a burley such as Carter Hall, Black Kathy is a winner. Thanks P&C for such an assortment of tobacco's for us to choose from!!

WOW..What a surprise. I received 4 oz. today to check out. I hate to write a good review as the product gets sold out and b/o'd when I am ready to buy again. This is a very good tasting tobacco with hardly no bite. Smooth and good tasting. I figured with Sutliff's 132 Bulk Tobacco choices I would have to order another 100 or so to find a good tobacco. I am pleased as punch and please do not run out. I do not care too much about room note as there are not many rooms you can smoke in now days. Most smoking is done outside.
