Bob’s CH Flake is a superlative, luxuriously rich blend of primarily sweet Virginia with delicately applied natural flavorings. The tobacco is upfront, while the non-cloying chocolate/cocoa plays off against the subdued vanilla. Both flavorings compliment rather than mask the tobacco. The Vit. N is at least medium. The more slowly and gently you enjoy, the more choice the experience. Relights well within reason. Highly recommended, especially when you need a blend in a class of its own.
When I open a new tin of Bob's Chocolate Flake, I don't know if I should smoke it or eat it it. It is a rich, smokey pipe tobacco. Medium in strength. A light chocolate topping but sublimes once you light up. A slight tough if latakia. Be sure to let the flake dry out before you smoke. And nobody beats TobaccoPipes.com for customer service.
This is easily in my top 5 tobaccos. Smokes cool, no bite, bold and flavorful. The chocolate comes through in waves and it also has a pleasant room note. Glad I snagged a 500g box before it went out of stock again.
My absolute favorite tobacco.
For an English aromatic, this is delicious! Better than the others in the same category. It has a cocoa flavor but it isn't too heavy. My favorite aromatics are light on the flavor and the flavors are used to enhance the tobacco, not burry it. This does an amazing job at that. If you need a break from your usual English, this is fun and tasty. I really enjoy it! Cheers!
A finely broken flake, that is great right out of the tin. A faint Lakeland floral essence is detectable only on the initial light. I found the cocoa presence subdued, this is not a Hershey bar. Great with coffee in the morning. It has not ghosted any of my pipes if that's your concern.
