Purchased a two ounce pouch of this and another blend (Mild Burley) in Deadwood, SD while on the road to Mount Rushmore. The nose does remind me of chocolate and coffee, but that nose didn't translate overly well when lit (the baccy burned fast). The blend's a shade strong, plenty of smoke. It's slightly sharp, no bite, just sharp tasting. The Burley and the Cavendish are noticeable, I couldn't detect the VA unless that's what's providing the sharpness. One question is where is the tobacco from? Sutliffe? Lane? Don't know. It reminded me of something Tinder Box might produce. I'll give this blend 2.5 stars (rounded down, as I always do, to 2 stars).
Finding Deadwood Tobacco was a surprise find. The two blends I purchased filled a need, so thumbs up! I place their baccy's a cut above many OTC's and were worth both my time and money.
