    4Noggins Double Fantasy

    OK, with a name like that and a description that reads:
    A blend of Black Cavendish and Burley that reminds one of a pleasant, mild cup of Mocha Java. The room note will immediately draw the opposite sex to you!!!
    ...well, it had my attention. It is currently rated 5/5 stars with 5 reviews on the 4Noggins site and 4/4 stars with only 2 reviews on tobaccoreviews.com. These reviews gave me just the nudge I needed to add it to my first ever online baccy order.

    The tobacco arrived with a higher moisture content than I prefer but that is easily corrected. The smell in the pouch is exactly as they describe, a sort of chocolate coffee smell hovering over the fermented cav and burley. Quite enjoyable and a pleasant change from rum/whiskey/cherry/vanilla normally associated with this type of blend.

    The cut is a course mixture, not fine ribbon or something like Prince Albert. It loads easily with the exception of one woody piece that I had to pull from the bowl at the last minute. My first three bowls were a bit difficult to light (my fault for not drying it more) but once going required very few re-lights.

    The smoke has a subtle sweetness to it, no doubt from the black cav. The only other "sweet" blend that I enjoy is Lane's RLP-6 and DF is nowhere near as sweet. Along with the sweetness there may be a hint of a burley/nutty flavor but it is not strong.

    The "mocha java" flavor is definitely there but is not obnoxious or overpowering. I get fresh coffee grounds when exhaling through the nose and the aftertaste is unmistakably java and chocolate.

    No matter how I abused this blend in either my new MM Country Gentleman or a wider-bowled briar I could not get it to bite. It did smoke wet and gurgle in the briar but I attribute that to higher moisture content and the fact that I was puffing pretty hard.

    This blend is low in Vitamin N which, for me, is OK. I wanted flavor that would make me smile, not a buzz.

    Finally, I smoke in my car during my commute so, sadly, I can't comment on how the opposite sex reacts to the room note.

    All in all this is a very enjoyable blend. Take it for what it is: a safe, pleasant, easy smoking and delicious blend that can be enjoyed any time of the day.

    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    Sounds good, nice review. That is a tobacco I have been thinking about trying, you may have moved it up my list a bit.
