    They can't all be the best, but that doesn't mean they're not damned good.

    If you're in the market for a rich, chocolaty, brownie-like aromatic tobacco, do yourself a favor and start with Sutliff's new Dark & Silky. There are lots of chocolate flavored tobaccos on the market ranging from good old fashioned Burley blends to gooey aromatics doused in sticky sweet liqueur. Dark & Silky is definitely in the later. It is what it looks like, and that's not a bad thing if that's what you're looking for. In all honesty, I found it hard to focus on Dark & Silky's qualities and give it a fair assessment because when it came out, I was on the end stretch of smoking a half pound of C'est La Vie: Chocolate Eclair which I had ranked among my favorite new aromatics. I had hoped that D&S would be a Sutliff tinned version. Not that there's anything wrong with pouches, but being a part of the Private Stock line, I had the highest of hopes for this new blend. Both are chunky cuts, somewhat wet (though not totally saturated), and smell like the finest “fresh baked brownies” (Mrs. Smokebacca's detection). The mechanics of both blends are what you'd expect if you're accustomed to American aromatics. It isn't too difficult to keep them going for a long smoke once you've managed to light them. Sadly, where D&S fell short (for me) was in the flavor department. Not short as in not-worth-a-try, but short by comparison to Chocolate Eclair. Unfair, I know, and that's why I've tried to mentally separate the two as best I can. But, where D&S has a familiar flavored Black Cavendish taste not nearly as chocolaty as it's tin note, Chocolate Eclair delivered on it's promise of tasting like death-by-chocolate cake! I wanted to review Dark & Silky because I DO think it's a good blend that stands on its own merits in spite of my mental block. Apparently, it has a wonderful room note for which I got plenty of compliments. I'd suggest buying some of each and judging for yourself. Tastes are so subjective and you may enjoy Dark & Silky more. Some smokers may not even detect a difference between them? I gave Dark & Silky three stars because I do feel it is above average. They can't all be the best, but that doesn't mean they're not damned good.
