An exemplary example of a Cavendish blend. Black and Gold is a pleasant, mild, and all-day blend by Super Value. Vanilla, caramel, and a touch of honey will grant the smoker with a smooth and creamy encounter. No flavor dominates but all will subtlety make their appearance. The characteristic will drive the smoker back to Black and Gold bowl after bowl.

Very smooth for those who smoke 6+ pipes a day. No bite or tongue burn. Clean even burn with good. mild taste. Even non-smokers like aroma. Super Value name is appropriate.
SuperValue blends are not known for being top-shelf tobaccos, generally being heavily flavored or entirely unflavored.....but this one is a well rounded, satisfying blend. The flavor notes seem to change at random which prevents "boredom" with this blend. I have detected each of the notes mentioned in the description and have even gotten an occasional "salted" caramel note which was unexpected but pleasing. The aroma and room notes are enjoyable and the smoke has a good, hefty body and flavor. I wasn't expecting a budget blend to be this appealing, as I have generally smoked high-end private label tobaccos for years......but this one is exceptional. I can't quite compare it to any blend I've had in the past, but I will be comparing others to this in order to judge their worth in the future. At this price point, I can say I have found my daily blend.
I enjoyed this tobacco. Smooth smoking experience. This was not very expensive and seemed very good quality for the price. I would buy again. Super Value is good quality tobacco and I will purchase from them again.
