Royal Cajun Ebony

Opening this 5 year old tin of Royal Cajun Ebony revealed loose, coarse cut ribbons of tobaccos that were mostly rich black in color with a fleck of brown here and there.  It was just slightly moist and the tin smelled of hickory smoked barbecue sauce and subtle spices.  An unlit sip gave me a smoky taste that reminded me of Latakia.

My first few draws after lighting produced a light chocolate taste, but as the bowl progressed things got a bit livelier even though I never experienced a "complex explosion of flavor."  At I progressed down the bowl the chocolate taste remained constant, but a spicy sweetness like cinnamon and a Latakia like smokiness became noticeable at various times.  The room note was toasty and slightly sweet which seemed very pleasant to me.

I really like this tobacco, the strength is about right for me, and the tastes were pretty enjoyable, if unremarkable.  I did not care for another tobacco in this line, the Royal Cajun Dark, as much as this one.  Ebony was a little stronger and tastier to me, and I will most likely be buying more of this.
