As advertised, 82% of this blend brings together Virginia tobaccos from 3 continents with a healthy dose [8%] of Latakia. Some Burley rounds out the blend. The blend gets its name from the Chocolate casing applied to the Virginias. Still, the flavor rates as a mild to medium while the body comes in solidly in the middle.
I did not know what to expect of this blend; would the topping overwhelm the tobaccos? No, it certainly did not. At the first of the bowl, I was concerned because I got lots of chocolate, but the flavor mellowed throughout the bowl. I was left with an enjoyable balance between naturally sweet Virginias and smoky Latakia. Give this one a chance for a unique take on the English blend.
