The very nutty, toasty, roasted, earthy, woody burley is the star component. The grass and light citrus from the Virginia isn’t that noticeable. The sugary black cavendish is just above being a condiment. The rich chocolate topping sublimates the tobaccos to a fair degree, mostly drowning out the Virginia. The strength is just shy of the center of mild to medium, while the taste is just past that level. The nic-hit is a hair past being mild. No chance of bite or harshness. The interesting thing about this blend is the melding of the burley with the chocolate, which creates a consistent roasted, nutty chocolate flavor that doesn’t weaken. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a very pleasant, lightly lingering after taste and room note. An all day aromatic with a little character. Three and a half stars out of four.
I am not an Aro smoker. I predominantly smoke VaPers. But this is a delightful change of pace. More of a toasty Virginia with an after taste of semi sweet Cocoa. Think Bakers Chocolate and you'll get the idea of what it's like. Pouch smell is Chocolate but I don't think this will satisfy your sweet tooth. Not sticky to touch. No goop. Lights and burns well.This is a yummy sophisticated Aro that is worth a try. Recommended
