The Kendal DVC or Dark Virginia Cavendish is produced by cooking Virginia leaf with steam to removes a lot of the stronger elements in the leaf and bringing out the natural sugars for a cooler burning smoother Virginia. It is fairly easy burning so is an ideal companion to a slow burning tobacco where the flavour doesn’t need over diluting or much adjustment but a faster burn rate is required.
90% of tobacco blends you buy from your favourite tobacconist have been expertly blended by tobacco blenders with decades of expertise under their belts using core base leaves and often a casing (flavouring) of some description. In your search for “THE PERFECT BLEND” you will find some tobacco’s that get close but just need that bit of character, that bit of ooomph or the burn rate just needs adjusting to suit your palate. That’s were blending tobacco’s come in. Whether you want to adjust the character of a pre bought blend or start from scratch for the ultimate bespoke tobacco this is the place to start.
