This screams fruit and Vanilla in the tin. But not the cheap generic vanilla. This is a beautiful flake made of Virginia and Black Cavendish with a very obvious topping. The quality tobacco still shines through. It's balanced and tasty but you have to be in the mood for such a blend.
Great flake. Definitely needs to be taken slow to get the full effect, but regardless, the flake is a top-notch blend. Strong vanilla flavor, pairs well with a strong coffee.
Best Flake I've ever tried. Rubs up nice, great smell, easy light and burns even, Awesome taste with little dottle!
Mild vanilla and quality tobacco.
If you're looking an aromatic that has a nice creamy vanilla that doesn't mask the quality tobacco you may enjoy this flake. Nice quality flakes, and a great vanilla tin note without being sickly sweet, and you can pick up the Virginia tobacco. The flake rubs out nicely, and mine wasn't too moist. I air dry everything and gave it about 20 minutes after rubbing it out. The smoke is very nice. It has a great mild vanilla, but it doesn't destroy the Virginia underlying flavors. This is one of my regular blends in my rotation. Vanilla is less pronounced in the flake than it is in the regular cut, and I prefer this flake for that reason.
The flavor seems to go away quickly after the charring light. But the tobacco in it is good enough that it is still very much so enjoyable.
