I picked up some Thin Mint when it was launched by the CS.
This is a tobacco which had a specific taste target, those great Girl Scout cookies called Thin Mints.
The bag note is chocolate and peppermint. The ribbon cut makes it easy to pack. The moisture content was a little damp at first, so I let it dry a little bit. On lighting the chocolate comes through along with a slight mint. The mint reminded me of "menthol" in menthol cigarettes, not a bad thing but might not be for everyone. The flavor lasts through the bowl at a consistent level. No tongue bite at a slow pace. The aftertaste is that "menthol" taste more than chocolate.
This is a nice smoke for after dinner or when you are looking for something "different". I don't see it as an all day smoke with the menthol touch. Wife loved the room note.
