A strong, no-fuss Burley, the Burley Flake #1 from Cornell & Diehl is a red Virginia and super-dark Burley blend. A dash of Perique is added for spice. This blend of Kentucky, Perique and Virginia is a frill-less favorite.

- Room Note:
Tin aroma was kind similar to wet hay for me. Room aroma was very similar to a mild cigar. This smoked very "sharp" to me and gave me a bit of indigestion. I know it's not the perique. I also got the Burley #2 and that was a much happier experience for me.
I like it strong, but this stuff made me feel sick. TOO MUCH!
I needed a replacement for the McClelland St. James Woods that was discontinued and the Burley Flake #1 was just the thing.
