A Mixture od Sun Cured, Brazilian Burley (Medium) and Virginia (Golden, Light)Tobaccos, flavored with Chocolate, Cocoa.
Notes: Other members of this series are all Finamore Virginia-Burley, flavored with: Peach, Cherry, Mint, Honey, Swiss Chocolate, White Chocolate, Capuccino, Coffee, Rum and Neutral (so-called German Type).
This is another good tobacco of the economical series of Finamore. Is even better than the Peach and the Cherry flavours. Virginia-Burley based, but aromatic, flavoured with chocolate. Rassembles Irlandez Black-Chocolate, of the same Company. Seems that the flavoring agent is the same, but is small ammout.
For obtain 3 Stars, in my concept, it can be more sweet and more flavoured. Two Stars.
Some related Blends from the Same Series.
Overall evaluations, since they are very similar to this: Finamore Burley-Virginia Café (Coffee) - 2 Stars, Finamore-Burley Virginia Pêssego (Peach) - 2 Stars also.

This blend is tasty and easy going. The cube cut makes it a fast and hot smoke, but satisfactory tobacco wise. The burley and VAs are good quality and well balanced. My only negative point for this tobacco is, as for most of Finamore blends, the over the top casing.
Apart from that, this is an affordable and decent smoke.
This is what we have in Brazil as an average drugstore tobacco. This is a really well known brand that makes pipe tobacco for ages. Probably the same recipe my great-grandfather used to smoke. There´s nothing special in there, just the fact that is a easy-cheap option to fill your pipe with some smokable thing. For the price it costs, couldn´t be any better.
Age When Smoked: straight from the pack
