Esoterica Blackpool

If you like Virginias you will love Blackpool. The licorice topping is very very faint. More of a simple sweetening agent than an in your face licorice flavour. The tobacco scores points with me every step of the way.

black and very moist right out of the pouch. Moist, not sticky or gooey. Being a hot pressed Virginia, the cut is similar to gently rubbed out flake. The aroma in the pouch is intoxicating. Strong scent of tobacco and candy. It honestly reminds me of the smell of Mail Pouch or Redman chewing tobacco. I rub it out a bit more and air dry for at least a couple hours. I have to believe that this would smoke terribly straight from the pouch due to the moisture level.

tobacco readily takes to flame and stays lit very well throughout the bowl. The flavour of the tobacco is one of sweet, spicy rich tobacco. The sweetness comes in the form of stewed, sugared fruit, the spice profile is one of cinnamon, allspice and an over all piquant spicyness that reminds me of dark fired tobaccos and the rich notes of cocoa, buttered toast and leather sort of wrap themselves around everything else to keep any one component from getting out of hand. The smoke is rich and at times borders on creamy. The smoke is not terribly complex as there is a constant rich, spicy, sweet tobacco flavour throughout the smoke, but the individual flavour components definitely do the dance and one or several may take the lead at times while others step back. This is absolutely delicious when blown through the nose.

Nicotine content will not blow your socks off, but you know it's there.  I have never been bitten by Blackpool as it seems to be very well behaved in the way it smokes cool and effortlessly down to the bottom of the bowl leaving only fine powdery white ash.   I WILL be cellaring more of this very very soon.
