I love most GH&Co tobaccos but this is one of my all time favorites. It's as strong as it is dark. Smokes great with a morning cup of strong, black coffee or during cocktail hour, or after a good meal. I only gave it 4 starts - because I like the Dark Flake Scented version better. But when they are out of the DF Scented (as was the case for this order), I'll grab this version. Good smoke.
Nice and strong. comes in long length flakes. I cut them up into 3rds and store them in mason jars. They crumble up pretty easy, easier than Irish flake let's say. Not too wet but I do dry them for anywhere to 30 mins to a couple hours before I smoke them. I usually rubbed the flakes out and smoke them that way. Has a nice dark fired taste and a decent amount of nicotine (which I like). I'm glad I ended up getting the 500G box, can't wait to see how they taste after some jar time.
Deep flavor. A touch of Lakeland. Unscented means, not the aromatic blend. Which btw is awesome.
Medium/strong baccy. Excellent taste if you take it slow...dont push it. Requires some relight...but once it gets going all is well. Excellent customer service provided by tobaccopipes staff.
This "unscented" version of G&H's Dark Flake still has a good amount of Lakeland Essence in it. If you're not a fan of Lakelands stay away.
