A comfy mixture of burley with a nice dark chocolate infusion and a bit of matured red Virginia for sweetness. Like Burley Morning Pipe, this blend uses real tobaccos and melds the flavors to them versus covering them up completely.

The toasted, double toasted burleys and the brown burley cavendish are the lead components. They provide a lot of earth, wood, nuttiness, toast, very light molasses, some cocoa, a pinch of spice, and a few grains of sugar. They also have a few rough, sour edges. The red Virginia offers tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, and light sugar and floral notes as a condiment. The lightly bitter dark cocoa topping moderately sublimates and cohesively helps create a very consistent, moderately sweet and lightly savory, rugged, toasty flavor that translates to the light lingering, pleasant after taste and room note. The strength is a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste is a slot past that mark. The nic-hit is a rung below the strength level. There’s no chance of bite or harshness here. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke.

I love this stuff, I will say, like many KBV blends and pretty much all aromatics, it needs dry time, in fact I store small amounts in an uncovered tin for days while smoking through it and it never quite dries completely. That said, it has excellent flavors of toasty burley and almost a dark fired smooth sweet chocolaty flavor with hints of vanilla. It is delectable for the first half of the bowl, after that it can get a bit harsh, definitely need to sip it a bit. Great smoke!
