Since I'm unable to conjure up flights of metaphor and striking similes at the moment, or, well, ever, I'd like to bring up the aforementioned tobacco. Today is my first acquaintance with it. Bought a full box based on the description and various reviews at the usual place, which made it sound like a toned-down, scented Virginia flake version of Bob's Chocolate. Opening the wrapper, I could definitely detect cocoa, maybe moreso than with Bob's. Couldn't find the vanilla it's reputed to have, but cocoa and vanilla are so commonly paired that I probably can't separate the aromas anyway when mixed. In the bowl, it's completely unlike what it smells like. (Sure, lots of tobaccos are like that.) There's no chocolate to be found, or vanilla either. The toppings disappear into the tobacco, making the Virginia deeper and darker in flavor. Yes, I know depth and darkness aren't really flavors, but I suspect that y'all know what I mean. The tobacco comes off as having more power than it really does, and it's an interesting effect. Burns nicely, doesn't turn to tarry-cigarry gack towards the bottom, and is an all-around decent smoke. Not filled with subtlety and layers, but that's exactly what I want sometimes: a good, mouth-filling, easy-going smoke. (5100 usually fills that need, but it's a lot lighter than this.) Keep in mind that I may be out of my mind from having smoked too much Ennerdale. It may be that this tobacco is filled with heliotrope and African violets and I just can't tell anymore. Anyway, it's not horrible and you might not hate it. What better recommendation could I make?
