Mike & Russ: The Mind Meld Chocolate

Who doesn't like chocolate? Of course, no one needs the extra calories, but Mike McNiel and Russ Ouellette have the perfect answer - Mike & Russ - The Mind Meld Aromatic - Chocolate. This mixture of mellow burley, zesty Virginia and silky-smooth black cavendish is the base for a deep, rich note of dark chocolate which is finished with just a touch of nut flavor. The room note is wonderful without being overpowering, and the taste is warm and lightly sweet. This may be the perfect understated chocolate aromatic.

It smells soooo good, I could just huff this stuff all day. The chocolate doesn't come across as cheap - I was tempted to eat a wad of this stuff. The background nutty/hazelnut/liqueur aroma added salivating tingles. Let's eat...

OK, to be fair, no tobacco in the world could translate the sublime initial whiffs into an equally delicious hot smoke, but I was hoping for a bit more of the taste to shine through. What followed was fine, but nothing remarkable. It was like a half finished Italian soda made with dark chocolate (and some cherry) syrup, but before the seltzer is added to open up the flavors. Towards the end, much of the flavor left (or I was simply numb to it). Still, it never felt cheap and it felt like another quality McClelland product.

I'm not sure if this was produced in the McClelland plant which is now kaput, but if it was and I could go back in time, I'd rather grab some GKCPC Chocolate Silk or better yet their Master Penman.
