Chacom No.3 Pipe Tobacco is blended from Virginia, Black Cavendish and Burley leaf with an added bourbon/vanilla flavour. The double fermented black cavendish plays the lead role in this sweet mixture. It provides a sweet creamy base which perfectly compliments the vanilla topping The Virginia has notes of grass, tart citrus, dark fruit and earth marrying perfectly with the bourbon topping. The Burley which is lightly added provides background notes of wood and light spice. The mixture is complex, mild, smooth and creamy with a wonderful full flavour and aroma
Presented in a 50g tin Chacom No.3 pipe tobacco is moist to the touch but doesn’t require any additional preparation or drying before loading into the pipe bowl. To fully appreciate the flavour and taste we recommend that the mixture is smoked at a slow pace to
- prevent the tobacco burning hot which will impair the taste and aroma,
- cause the pipe to overheat potentially causing the dreaded tongue bite.
