Yes, I guess it's just another in a long list of Virginia Flakes...but it's right up there at the top of the list. A mild, non-obtrusive, satisfying all day smoke for Virginia lovers. It has become my go-to-smoke every day. As an after thought, the price is right also.
Smells like honey and ages quite nicely even after only a year in the jar. Wonderful by itself and even better when mixed with some St James perique.
Smooth smoke down to the ash, never bites Requires very little to no drying time.
I rub out enough for the day, about 3 flakes. Sometimes I add a pinch or 2 of Sutliff maple and rum. When I rub it out there's good chunks and some shake, it works out great chunks in the bottom and a little shake on top. Never burns hot. Taste bread and sweet citrus molasses.
