Blended by Kohlhase & Kopp in Germany, Cobblestone's Chess series features pipe tobaccos named for the namesake game's pieces. The Rook is a pure Virginia blend cut into a thin, delicate flakes for easy preparation and showcases the natural sweetness and character of Virginia tobacco.
Upon opening the tin I was greeted by a subtle sweetness and malty/bready tin note. The moisture content is good but still needed a little dry time. The Virginias are mahogany to medium brown. I found the flake to have a natural sweetness and as I go... Read Moret to the middle of the bowl there was a spiciness mostly in the retrohale that made me think of perique. I think that this flake will age beautifully and recommend getting two tins. One to test and one to rest. Read Less
