Cask No. 5 is a light and mellow blend of Burleys and bright Virginias with a very subtle hint of Bourbon. The topping is gentle enough to be hard to trace in the taste, but provides a pleasant room note to make this the perfect choice for smoking in mixed company.
Tobacco Type: Burley and Virginia
Blend Type: Aromatic
Strength: 2 of 5
Room Note: Pleasant
Amount: 100 g. / 3.5 oz
I purchased a 3.5 oz tin from a local retailer, so hoping it's just the fault of the local retailer, but unfortunately the tobacco burns quickly and fairly hot. The taste is extremely light and almost no room note. On the other hand on weekends if I'm home and working in the yard or doing things around the house I do enjoy a pipe of COL Cask No 5 3.5 oz Bullet Rye Select because it does make for a good everyday smoke minus the higher temperature. Luckily I have been smoking pipes and cigars for a few years so I have gotten used to tongue to an extent, but due to the high temperatures, I would not recommend to beginners pipe smokers. I plan to purchase other Comoy's of London Tobaccos before making any further purchasing decision on Comoy's of London products.
