- Room Note:
The moisture content is good right out of the tin. A nice chocolate note as soon as you open the tin. Tried it in several different pipes, found the same thing in all of them. Has mild chocolate flavor that seemed to fade towards the end of the bowl.
After some disappointing tries with other brands I had really high hopes for Cobblestone but it too was my biggest let down yet. If I shoved my nose into the tin I could almost imagine what it should smell like & smoking it was equally disappointing. I felt the warmth of the cob bowl & saw the smoke but there was absolutely no flavor, no note, nothing. Calling this a "mild" tobacco is grossly overstating it & the nicest thing I can say is that the bite is as nonexistent as the flavor.
Now that the weather is turning cool I've been enjoying this on my morning break at work, gets a lot of compliments. Smells and tastes like hot chocolate.
The unsweetened black cavendish has a light sugary, toasty presence, but the star is the silky, creamy smooth chocolate topping. The strength and taste levels are mild. Has no nicotine to speak of. Won't bite or get harsh, and has no rough edges. Burns cool and clean at a moderate rate with a very consistent flavor from top to bottom. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a lightly lingering, very pleasant after taste and room note. An all-day, sweet smoke. Three stars out of four.
