If you’ve ever eaten Christmas cake you’ll know how Rum Flake tastes. This is one of the great pipe blends meant to be sipped. A special treat for long, relaxed, contemplative sessions during cold weather – not that temperature stops me. Make sure to treat it lovingly, as otherwise you’ll sour the taste and spoil the bliss. If you must dry it, keep it moist! With at least a medium kick, this is truly a world class blend to be savored for its depth. Excellence in a bowl. Go for it!
I have only smoked two bowls but I do not regret my purchase. It smells of molasses, not rum. It tastes good and burns cool..It does smell good according to people around the campfire. I would purchase it again.
I found this pipe tobacco to be very pleasant with a great flavor & room note. Highly recommended!
Good quality tobacco for sure. Smoked well. But if you’re looking for a strong flavored aromatic, this isn’t it. The rum is super subtle.
Beautiful long flakes composed of Virginias and Burley. This is a relatively stronger blend with a great tobacco taste and various sweet and spicy flavorings. The toasty, substantial tobaccos win out over the rum and maple as one proceeds down the bowl. Will not bite or become bitter. Will not smoke hot. Moderate nic hit. Dry it a bit before loading the pipe. Smoke as a broken flake for a slow smoke or fold and stuff for a slower smoke. One of my all-time favorites.
