|Tobacco:||Burley, Cavendish, Virginia|
|Room Note:||5 - Intensive|
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.
