Havana House - Ralph Allen.
I bought this from the blender at the store in Bath, U.K. whilst on holiday. I must say, he was a superbly helpful gentleman, who also introduced me to some new pipes! I'm not sure as to whether or not this is available from other outlets, but if your in Bath I'd recommend you get some!
The blender told me that the chocolate flake used is Bob's Choc' Flake, and this gives the mix a great quality: creamy, smooth and nutty. But, unlike unadulterated Chocolate Flake, there's not too much coco; the smoke has a depth to it, without a full-on aromatic quality.
This blend burns superbly: right from igniting, I only need to use my tamper alone, unless I let my pipe sit and extinguish itself.
This has quite a healthy dose of N: not too strong, but still more than medium.
This is a great example of how good smaller blenders can be: highly recommended.
