A mix of Virginia tobaccos, fragrant burley, and black cavendish combine in Chacom's #2 blend. A subtle, yet flavorful topping of sweet vanilla and yellow plum is then added, creating a pleasant smoke and aroma.
I can immediately smell a sweet and fruity plum tin note here. There are other reviews I've seen that claim to only barely detect the plum... but I can definitely smell it when I open this tin. And it's a natural sweetness and fruitiness, as opposed to the artificial sweetness/flavors that some aromatics have. It really smells great, much like Solani's Festival, but more "natural" and, frankly, better.
When first lit, that fruity flavor is there as well, along with the burley and Virginia. It's not overly topped like some aromatics. There's a natural vanilla bean flavor as well, and some light Virginias. Also, I don't know exactly what it is, but there is a sweet "spice rack" sort of taste. It's sort of cinnamon-y and spice-like... and I think it may be the result of the vanilla bean flavor mixing with the nutty Burley. It's very pleasant and natural. There's a lot going on. And through it all, that nice dried fruit/plum taste is still there. It's only slightly moist right out of the tin, doesn't need too much drying... and all the flavors taste very natural. It's on the short list of my favorite aromatics now. I'm going to be buying more of this stuff.
Bottom Line: This is a lightly-topped aromatic. Really more of a nicely sweet, fruity burley-based blend that isn't really like anything I've tasted before. Highly recommended.
Sublime odeur de prune ou pruneau alcoolisé à l’ouverture de la boîte. On se laisse tant séduire par les arômes de sucre qu’on en mangerait presque. La fumée est douce, presque délicate. L’arome en bouche touche plus aux fruits secs et vanille qu’à la prune que nous avions au nez à l’ouverture. Un superbe tabac saucé légèrement qui laisse les brins s’exprimer au fumage. Un gros succès de chacom
