Hello, I have recently come back to the hobby after about a 12 year hiatus and find much has changed. First off it seems my taste in tobacco has changed. I was an aromatic guy and now I find they burn hot and bite, whereas Burley flakes burn great and don't bite. I just tried a bowl of some aromatic house blend from a local shop here in Bethesda, Maryland and have to say it tasted pretty similiar to Captain Black. Not impressed. I also picked up a tin of Wessex Burley Slice and Solani Aged Burley Flake. I have tried the Slice and liked it's burning qualities but found the flavour elusive. I'll keep trying (Only a few bowls into it). At this point I would like to ask what is a smooth burning (No bite) tobacco which leans towards chocolaty/coca/rich flavours with very strong taste. I think I tasted additives in the aromatic I purchased and I really did not like it. The Solani I purchased came highly recommended, but at the price it is not a sustainable option for me. Thanks in advance for any response and please pardon if the post is a bit confused or the nomenclature incorrect, I'm a bit of a born again noob searching for the right smoke.
