Caribbean Coconut was released 2 or 3 years ago and we was lucky enough to sample the various test blends. Built on a classic American style base of double fermented Black Cavendish with Gold Leaf Virginia's and a touch of Burely. A sweet caramel source is added along with some very tangy Coconut, the caramel gives this blend a creamy and highly aromatic flavour. Since its release, Caribbean Coconut quickly became a favourite with Aromatic smokers around the UK.
The smoke is smooth and very easy to smoke as you would expect with the constitution of the base tobaccos. Not really producing much in the way of nicotine, makes this a great tobacco for those new to tobacco or for someone who doesn't want a big nicotine hit. With casings this sweet and rich, the room note is stunning and will please most around the smoker

Been using this for a couple of years now ever since the disapperance of Amphora Red which I used for many years. It is somewhat unique in having that slight taste and aroma of coconut which is very pleasant indeed if you prefer a sweet flavour. The smoke has no trace of bitterness or harshness and at the price offered I guess I will continue to use it.
