Black Couldron: Come and Get It!
About two years ago, the idea came to me to make a tobacco mix that resembled chocolate covered cherries. After some time of pondering and studying each tobacco, I finally found what I was looking for and I named it Cabin Boy, one of the many nicknames I had acquired during my stay here at Tobacco Place. Unfortunately, I found a slight bite on the tongue when smoking it all day. Thus Cabin Boy had to be retired. The nickname, however, remains to this day.
Now, years later, I have found the mix to work perfectly with the arrival of a new component. It is now refered to as Black Cauldron which has a soft, almost “cakey-tasting” sweetness that floats across the tongue with no bite at all!
If you are looking for a lightly sweet smoke with a great aroma, then look no more! Its a keeper!
