Russ' Candy Cane Cocoa Sale


Russ' Monthly Blend - Candy Cane Cocoa is the perfect blend for sitting at home in front of the fireplace. The mixture is mostly black Cavendish with some Virginia and Burley. It has a rich chocolate note with a hint of peppermint. What makes the blend especially interesting is that the room note smells like freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies, but the chocolate takes the background in the flavor as the cooling mint lingers pleasantly on the palate. The  initial sample disappeared very quickly here in the office, and we expect it will become a real favorite.

quality pipe tobacco
This is the first Russ's blend I have tried, and it is awesome---- the flavor profile is just as described with rich notes of peppermint and chocolate. I can't wait to try more of Russ's offerings!

Really enjoyed Russ' Candy Cane Cocoa mix this winter.
Really enjoyed Russ' mix this winter. Tasty and mild, little to no bite. Great cocoa notes with a minty taste. I will buy this one again.

Russ’ Candy Cane Cocoa is
Russ’ Candy Cane Cocoa is chocolate minty goodness (a nice switch from the normally dank English tobaccos I enjoy)!

A great way to get into the holiday spirit.
I bought this at Christmas time a year ago and never got around to smoking it. I lit I up this year and found it to be a delightful change of pace. The Cocoa and mint are both detected in the pouch note and while smking. It is smooth with no bite, burns evenly and stays lit. I am not sure I will smoke it year-round, but it will definately go into my rotation during the holidays.

Cool Minty Chocolate MMMMMM!
I love the taste of this stuff. I actually smoked 2 bowls back to back of it when it first arrived. I placed a 2nd order for more. I smoked a bowl while having an adult beverage by a bonfire at a friends house. He commented on the great aroma that drifted his way. This blend burns cool and once lit it stayed lit. I enjoy the mint and the nice chocolate after taste. This is tobacco is almost dessert like to me.

Good Smoke! Small crumb like pieces :(
Pretty good smoke. I like flavor, the mint came out more then the cocoa but overall it was good. One complaint is maybe I received my batch from the bottom of the barrel but my tobacco came with a lot of tiny flakes and crumbs. I was constantly sucking up tobacco through the stem. Good smoke just to many small bits and pieces.

Peppermint is Awesome!
One of my new favorites. Right from the 1st puff, it felt like I was sucking on a peppermint and the 'mint' feel stayed for a while.

Russ' Candy Cane Cocoa
Smokes great, but like the aromatics I've purchased, none match up to what they're hyped up as. The bag is aromatic, but seldom the tobacco...

Mild and minty for a long winter
This one could be an all day blend if it had a little more bite. It's great in the morning, mild enough to pair with a medium black coffee and a nice treat after lunch but I had to blend a bit with a more full mix to make it through the evening. Overall I like the cool mint aftertaste, just want a little more tobacco in the aftertaste. Definitely a holiday blend with a room note that the whole family can appreciate.

Good Change Up
SPS Molto Dolche has been my go to, but this is a pleasant change to the that. It smokes very cool and has good flavor. I would suggest using a dedicated pipe for it though. No bite, easy to keep lit, good flavor, great for something very different.

Great FLAVOR!
This is the best tasting mint flavored tobacco i have had. The fresh smell was outstanding and the taste was full with a hint of tingle. the aroma that was left in the room was amazing. This is not just for Christmas! There were times it tasted like one of those mints you get on your pillow....not to drop any trademark names.

Absolutely delicious!
I love this stuff!! One of my favorite tobacco's hands down! The peppermint really comes through, it's like you are enjoying an actual candy cane. The cocoa is there as well, but the candy cane is in charge. The room note smells like hot chocolate being made. I get loads of complements on this one!

Too much menthol cigarette
I generally like Russ' blends (especially the warm-up) but this has too much of a menthol cigarette flavor. Not a favorite

Lived up to its title
I am a novice in the pipe world, only in for about a year. I have never ordered tobbacco from the internet. I was pleasantly surpised when my package arrived the aroma of peppermint and chocolate was permiating through the box before i even opened it. When i tried the blend, i was struck with a vicks vapor rub like mint. I love mint and i could not get enough. As the blend began to dry after a week or two i began to taste the "cocoa" in the blend. If you do not like mint or have some hangup about it, do not try. But if its your thing you shant be dissappointed.

Very Nice
I finely got my order of this tobacco and it is very nice. I really like this, it is truly bite free. It's just after the holidays and the mint and cocoa go very nice together at this time of the year.

Tootsie Rolls
This stuff is really good. Russ hit it out of the park with this blend. When I first opened the package, my kids thought I had chocolate. Thats how good it smells. The smoke is superb. The room note is fantastic. I really like that i dont have to drink water while smoking this blend. Most blends i need a sip of water every now and then. Every time i open the cupboard, my daughter says it smells like tootsie rolls. I cant get big white clouds without any bite. Glad i bought 4oz of this blend

Very strong minty flavor, I don't pick up alot of the cocoa but the mint is fantastic. Would give it 5 stars if it were just a mint blend but it's great for the price!

A very nice smoke
This had a great aroma when I opened the bag, with a nice cocoa smell. I'd describe the smoke as cocoa - mint. If you can imagine smoking a York peppermint patty, that's what this seems like. I'd definitely buy this again.

Simply awesome
This is a great blend. I'm not a fan of mint,but this is great. Mild mint after tone, moist, stays lit well, and no mouth burn if smoked right. Hope this never goes away. Thumbs up.

Worth waiting for!
This blend smells incredibly delicious in the bag, so chocolately. In the pipe, it smells great too, but the mintiness shines through with every draw. This is my third order of Candy Cane Cocoa. I am stocking up on my favorite blends, and this is definitely on that list! Try it! Special note- Store it in a glass jar- like a Ball jar to preserve the mint taste. I do this for all my pipe tobaccos, and it works FAR better than a plastic bag.

Candy Cane Cocoa…YUM!
A very “different” blend for my taste although I keep a small amount on hand for the evenings that I have trouble sleeping. Kind of like my occasional late night snack. Sitting on the porch and listening to the night sounds. Very relaxing indeed.

Loved it
Im a new pipe smoker, so I havent developed the sophisticated appreciation some seem to have. Having said that, I loved the Candy cane/Cocoa blend, and my wife says the house smells great. It tasted nice in the mouth with no bite to speak of. If I have any criticism, its the menthol/peppermint is a bit strong on first lighting...but does settle down after a while. Id buy it again!

Got this for my sister for Christmas... She loved it... she said it tasted like real peppermint.

Warm up to CCC... great stuff
This is one of those aromatics where the chocolate and minty flavors do overpower the tobacco... I get more of the tobacco on the exhale. I think this is what Russ intended when he made it. It's super for what it aspires to be. I bought 5 ounces of it and I am glad that I did. I happily dedicated a pipe to this blend. It's a delicious after dinner or late night smoke.

Tastes and smells just like it is called. I had to buy more because I'm afraid I'll never see it again.

Great Holiday Smoke!
An excellent flavored tobacco for the holiday season. Burns nicely and has an excellent room note followed by a minty finish. Great smoke.

Refreshingly minty.
Not to much into Aromatics, but this is a good choice to start for me. I smoke outside so really can't comment on room note. Has a good taste that is truely minty, and up to the end of the bowl the smoke really has a good chocolate smell. It is pretty moist tobacco, and I say this knowing it burns well with little re-lights and no drying out time. It does leave a fairly large clump of Dottle in the bowl bottom. I enjoyed it and would buy this again, I give it 4 stars because it was such a good initial aromatic experience.

Best Christmas blend
If you're looking for something that tastes like Christmas... Then this is it. Awesome awesome blend! The subtle notes of chocolate on the puff with the lasting aftertaste of mint. The perfect balance. Some recommend mixing in frosty mint. But I'd say it's perfect just the way it is. A must buy, especially for the holiday season!
5 out of 5
Cool and smooth
Great blend of mint and cocoa! The mint isn't overpowering and you can actually taste the cocoa. Great tobacco! Tastes exactly like it smells and it smells exactly like it's name. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a mint tobacco.

Delicious, the Best Blend I've Tried!
The Best Blend I've ever tried!.. Sweet, but not too sweet, I would like a tiny bit more mint, but this is Excellent. The first blend I've tried that I am sad when the bowl is over. Just sticking my nose into the bag is a treat! I hope this is always "On the Menu" at P&C, I will keep this in my rotation.. Sometimes I like something "tangy" like "Leo's", or something traditional like Black Cavendish or Vanilla notes in the tobacco. But for a real dessert-like Treat, this is the Best I've tried!.. and Thank You P&C for your excellent prices and great service!

very Merry Christmas !!
This is my first review as this is also the first flavored pipe tobacco I've bought from here . First off , I would like to say HELLO to all the other fellow pipe smokers out there . Are we not so appreciative of this website ? Pipes and cigars gets a "Hats off " from me indeed ! Okay so this tobacco smells like a deep dark chocolate to me as soon as I took it from the packaging box . That was so nice . However , the satisfaction was short lived as I smoked it. I did not get the full satisfying feeling of having the smoke fill my lungs as I have had with other brands . I feel like I could smoke an entire bowl and still want more . But that is not a bad thing , especially if you are new to smoking a pipe . I would say this is a beginners type of tobacco . It is certainly mild . The taste was very good , though . To me it was worth it alone . A small hint of Menthol ? Very , very good . I will be definitely buying this again .

Customer Testimonials
I'm always happy to pick up one of Russ' Monthly Blends because they're an interesting adventure each time. Candy Cane Cocoa is the same. Overall, I enjoyed the flavors it presented and there's not many negatives. The smell out of the bag is intense chocolate (or I guess cocoa!), which is pleasant. However, while smoking, the "Candy Cane" peppermint flavor is king. On the downside of this, some puffs will taste more like menthol than anything else. Personally, I don't mind it, but some people might. The "cocoa" flavors are hidden under the predominantly peppermint-menthol taste. It's much more present in the smell of the smoke, or the "room note." All-in-all, a good smoke worth picking up if you want to try something different.
Out of the park home run. If you like aromatics, this is one you must have. The tin note is heavy chocolate, with a hint of peppermint. When you light this up, your mouth is filled with the sensation like you are eating a peppermint candy, not overpowering, but pleasant. I did not get the chocolate taste, but the room note is pure melted chocolate. It will burn hot if you don't relax, but burns great. The smoke is a very fluffy white creamy smoke.....my daughter came outside because she thought I was melting chocolate for dessert based on the smell. This will be reordered so I do not run out. Russ......grand slam with this one. Very impressed.
Wow, what can I say about this that has not been said in the other comments for this. So far this is my favorite pipe tobacco. People at work said it smelled the best, it tastes GREAT!!! Chocolate, peppermint all up front while on the nose is cocoa and a after taste on the palate of just finishing a candy cane stick. When people say menthol, most think of menthol cigarettes such as Newports or Malboro Menthol. This is nothing like those machine made mint. This taste, as crazy as it sounds, like a freaking ACTUAL PEPPERMINT!!! No other way to explain this. I think it will speak for itself.
I usually like Scotty's blend, particularly the Candy Corn, which is about the best pipe tobacco I ever had. I decided to try the Candy Cane Cocoa. It was not to my liking. The peppermint, which tasted more like menthol to me, overpowered everything else, icluding the cocoa and any tobacco taste that might have been there. Perhaps, if the peppermint was toned down to just a hint, you might have something here. If a pipe smoker is looking for a good tobacco taste, with a hint of sweetness, this may not be to his liking.
Received this tobacco the other day and decided to smoke a bowl as I walked my dog, every one was asking if that was my pipe tobacco that smelled like candy cane...hopefully you get this back in stock soon.
Outstanding blend, nice chocolate aroma and very cool from the peppermint overtones, which you really appreciate as sometimes aromatics smoke too hot. It certainly grows on you. At first you think it might be too aromatic, but then you start craving it. The aroma in the pouch is very apparent, my wife asked me, "what smells like chocolate in your office? It burns very evenly and is excellent to blend with other black Cavendish's for extra 'coco' aroma. A definite crowd pleaser to the pipe smoker, and those who don't smoke, asking what blend is that?
This blend is outstanding, not overpowering and it has a great room note. The candy cane comes through on your palate with a nice menthol taste the cocoa is rich and up front. Get this back in stock soon please its a winner.
This tobacco in one word....bright! I was hesitant to try this blend. Nightcap is my preferred smoke, no matter the time of day. I like the dark smokey blends, and this is the exact opposite. The cocoa is very light while smoking, yet very strong in the bag. And the candy cane....oh boy! It's there for sure! Pretty much a mentholated tobacco. I truly enjoyed this as an early early morning smoke. Caution, this flavor is very pungent in the plastic bag from P&C, and it may make whatever you order in the same parcel smell the same! Currently airing out my Lane 1-Q that came in the same box! Great blend for my taste Russ, thanks! And Merry Christmas P&C!
