HU Tobacco Tillerman

Various Virginia grades from Tanzania, Zambia, India and the Philippines form the base of the Tillerman flake. Medium strength, with a pleasant natural sweetness get the Tillerman a subtle chocolate/nut flavor, which harmonizes perfectly with the natural tobacco flavour and gives the Tillerman its individual taste. A wonderfully, spicy and complex tobacco for all hours of the day.
Notes: Aromatics: Nut / dark chocolate/ and a secret ingredient.

Sadly this tobacco does not work for me.

The smell from the tin is that of strong milk chocolate, very enticing.

Folding and stuffing a flake right from the tin simply does not work, it won't ever light. Cube cutting, rubbing out and letting it to dry anywhere from 1 hour to 3 days improves things somewhat, but not a lot.

I find that this tobacco does not produce any taste for me, the occasional puff will give off some Virginia hay, perhaps a whiff of coccoa, perhaps some pepper, nuts, or a bit of sweetness. These are all "whiffs" and "ideas" and reminders of flavours I get elsewhere, clearly my taste buds are too blunt to get much out of it but I won't feel bad when there are so many tobaccos out there which I smoke and enjoy immensely.

I could live with a tobacco having mild (i.e., no) taste for me, what I can't live with is the instant tongue bite, even when stone cold. I've read countless times that Virginia tobacco will bite if pushed, but here I am talking about letting the pipe die out, go cold and then lighting with as little flame as possible, and getting bitten instantly. This is the deal breaker, I could live with it if I was getting amazing flavour from it but I am not, hence I will finish the tin and be glad it's over.

2 stars for not being for the compost pile, 1 star for the lack of taste and tongue bite.

Edit: I read among other reviewers that this blend may contain chili, that would explain the instant tongue bite, good to know so I can avoid it anywhere outside the kitchen.
