James Barber - Broken Scotch Flake - Chocolate.
I must admit, when I first saw this on their website I assumed it was just Gawith Hoggarth's Broken Scotch Cake. But then when I read the description properly I noticed it said it's flavoured with chocolate; it has to be different!
The tobacco's appearance is fairly un-alarming: a broken flake that's not in need of any extra rubbing. To be truthful, I struggle to detect much chocolate from the pouch-note, it seems to have been added very lightly. The moisture's good so it can be smoked straight-off.
As expected from the pouch-note, the chocolate is very light. It gives more of a creaminess to the smoke at first, rather than an actual taste of cocoa: it's not overly chocolate-like, but quite pleasant nonetheless.
There isn't much to comment on about the tobacco taste: a straight Virginia, hay and grass like.
The nicotine amount is also simple to review: mild.
At first I found this a very enjoyable blend. But then, after smoking a bowl, I felt a bit bored. It's not that it's a bad blend, it's just a bit mundane.
