Sutliff Tobacco Co. - Dark and Silky. Dark and Silky? Well it sure is dark! The tin contains jet black tobacco, which has a very beguiling aroma of chocolate. It isn't a ribbon cut, no way, it's a very coarse cut mixture. It might be considered a little too damp for some smokers, but this tin still smoked fine straight away. The smoke epitomises the word decadent. Right from the off there's creamy, sweet Cavendish, with a perfect accompaniment of sweet, milky chocolate; not bitter chocolate, but very 'laid back'. The black Cavendish is very 'heavy', it generates lots of opulent smoke, which is almost chewy!! Although it has a fairly formidable topping, I get no tongue bite and it's a cool temperature smoke. Nicotine: very mild. Room-note: couldn't offend anyone! Dark and Silky? My kind of aromatic. So much so, after one bowl I ordered more for the cellar. Highly recommended: Four stars.
Pipe Used: Armellini, Altinok
Age When Smoked: A few months
