No. 403 Darkest Chocolate A chocolate lover's delight! This rich Black Cavendish flavored with deep, dark chocolate, but not too sweet, that has been described as fine European chocolate or Devil's Food cake in a pipe. It's very cool-smoking with an aroma that is absolutely mesmerizing.

McClelland - No. 403 Darkest Chocolate.

I've smoked Bob's Chocolate in all of the available forms: ready rubbed, flake, and plug, and they were thoroughly enjoyable. But this one, this sets a new standard for chocolate aromatic's.

As it's a clear polythene pouch I can see that the tobacco's very dark and coarse cut. And then, when I open the pouch, the smell comes into play, and damn it's good! The blend's a bit moist, well nearly wet, so needs to be dried, but after that it's a real joy.

It's a doddle to ignite, just a match or regular flame should be enough power. The chocolate flavour's remarkably true: there's even that subtle bitterness that comes from high quality, very flavoursome, dark chocolate. I find this quite unique as a lot of chocolate blends just resemble cheap milk chocolate, but this has a fair amount of raw cocoa flavour to it. It burns very well, and the burn gives an unbelievably cool smoke, it's just ultimately relaxing! The tobacco flavour's a perfect companion to the chocolate: vanilla and chocolate, what's not to love?!

I can't get enough of the room-note, and I assume many non smokers would feel the same: it's like being in a chocolate shop! And the nicotine amount would have a struggle to be classed as extremely mild; it's the weakest I've had!

This, chocolate fans, is singularly the best chocolate blend I've had.

Highly recommended.
