Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Bob's Chocolate Plug

From the pouch you get a spicy, smoky aroma of the tobaccos with a sweet chocolate scent from the toppings. The smoke is cool, smooth and has a wonderful room note. The florals are subtle and barely detectable compared to most Lakelands leaving the chocolate and Latakia to take center stage.

What can I say about Bob's Chocolate Plug that hasn't been said already? I love this blend!, I really can't get enough of this or Bob's Choc Flake, I've seen Bob's Chocolate Ready Rubbed & Bob's Chocolate Square Cut reviews on this site but haven't seen them for sale anywhere to try.

BCP offers a smoother taste than the BCFlake somehow, certainly has more chocolate in the pouch note which carries over into the smoke, a nice good quality chocolate though, or a good chocolate cocoa with cream. No tongue bite from start to finish which is good for me as I have a tendency to counter productively drag a little too hard at times, especially if it's a tobacco I am enjoying.

It's a delight to cut, medium soft but not too hard that it can't be ripped apart with your fingers, I prefer to cut it though which I do across the 'grain' followed by an easy rub with my fingers to break it down that last wee bit. While I have seen G&H tobaccos that in my opinion have been too moist from the tin, I've seen a few that've been much moister than this one, this isn't overly so but all the same leaving it to dry for 15 minutes isn't a complete waste of time.

I like to keep some of this around, or alternate between the Flake to satisfy my "Bob's Chocolate" urge or when I want something a wee bit sweet from time to time but without the goop.
