On April 1st, there was an announcement, that Wilke Pipe Tobacco has created a new tobacco blend, Peanut Butter & Chocolate. Obviously, someone stated that this might be a April's Fools trick. But today, I can state that this is the best "trick" that I have ever tasted. My wife smelled the pouch and announced it was the best smelling tobacco, that I have ever purchased.
I retreated to my garage and smoked a small bowl in a meerschaum and another bowl in a small briar. I could not detect the peanut butter, but that might have been the result of the peanut butter sandwich, before I went to the garage. Also, I rarely can taste the components of the tobacco. The blend had lots of long strands of tobacco. If you like sweet tobacco, you should try this new blend.
Mine arrived days ago. Found that my particular batch of both PB and PB & Chocolate needed a good deal of sun-dry time. Once sufficiently dried, these blends tasted, smelled, and smoked like they fell from HEAVEN!!! Jarred them and now can't keep from sticking my nose in just to get another whiff.... soooo gooood!!!! Get ya some!!!
Follow-up on my initial impressions of Wilke's Peanut Butter blends: SENSATIONAL!!! - And for this 40+ year veteran pipe tobacco enthusiast ..ADDICTING!!! But be forwarned - give these blends ample dry time (sponge-to-crisp) for maximum flavor & burn enjoyment. The flavors are definitely as advertised and expertly reviewed at TR. The burn characteristics are out of this world with gobs of creamy billowy one-light-past-char-light cloud blankets (if dried properly) perfect for cold nights and balmy Summer breezes. I'm a damn persnickety S.O.B. picky baccy critique, but these Wilke/JimInks masterpiece creations top Mt. Everest in my book of books! Smooth, creamy, flavorful, and delicious!
