Choice Burley is punctuated with a smattering of Virginia to give this fine blend its' sweet character. The sweetness of the Virginia compliments a slight chocolate note to create a most satisfying smoke.

I am a burley lover, and this tobacco is right up my alley. Lights easily, smokes without a hint of bite, very few relights, and leaves me pleasantly relaxed. When smoking it, I was reminded of Cicero's sage advice for a life marked by otium cum dignitate, and this tobacco does it. The slight hint of cocoa/chocolate sweetens the natural sourness of Burley. Not at all certain how they came by the name, but if it means that they made 211 attempts before hitting on this one, then I'd say they really got it right. A great tobacco for an all day smoke, and one that will certainly be a part of my regular rotation.

Very nice smoke. The Burley and the chocolate flavoring are delicious. The chocolate is lightly done. The Virginias add a nice sweetness, but can sting at times. No bite, but a light sting. For those who are really susceptible to bite you may have some trouble with this one. Medium bodied with medium flavor.

MacBaren owns Sutliff. This blend is so similar to MacBaren's Burley London Blend that it makes me wonder if they aren't the same. Just a thought. Both are available in bulk with the Sutliff version 45 cents per ounce cheaper.
