Doesn’t get much better than this. A sweet, nutty flavor that delivers a dynamic smoke over and over. A must for any true pipe smoker. Best in class.
Great top notch Virginia. Very sweet and mild tasting with a heavy vinegar almost orange juice tin note. There is a spice taste very similar to cinnamon I would compare the taste to be very similar to Erik Stokkebye1855. Very mysterious and addictive secret spice ingredient, I love it.
This flake tobacco is at the peak of tobaccos, it has a great filling flavor. I prefer smoking this before a nice steak, or lobster dinner, it adds a good flavor to food and a great night time smoke. An all-around day or night smoke I’d say.
