Taking inspiration from the birthplace of the briar pipe, Chacom's Saint Claude is a tribute to the French pipe tradition. Blended from bright and red Virginias, and a sprinkling of black cavendish, it's a minimalist mixture gently sweetened with chocolate and vanilla for a smooth, all-day smoke.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The bright and red Virginias provide citrus, tangy dark fruit, a little earth and grass as the main components. The red Virginia takes a slight lead. The unsweetened black cavendish offers a small amount of brown sugar. The lightly applied chocolate and vanilla toppings sublimate the tobaccos to a moderate extent with the chocolate being a tad more obvious. I also get a few marshmallow and some sourness. The taste level is a little closer to mild than it is to medium. Has a very mild nic-hit. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a lightly sour, judiciously sweet, consistent flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day smoke. It does lack some depth, so it’s two and a half stars.

This was one of the Chacom line up blends that made an appearance at my local pipe club's tobacco bar recently, and it is one that pleased the crowd greatly. The combination of chocolate and cocoa is done often, of course, and this one fit right in with others that I have smoked. Some have been better and some have been worse. The enhancements make this one a true concoction for aromatic lovers.
