This is a superb flake. I smoke it every day.
Mild to medium with a mild nic-hit.
There's a mild hint of citrus from Virginia with dried fruit & fig from the perique. For me, the amount of perique is just right.
Moisture level is perfect. Although a great smoke straight from the box, this improves a lot from aging.
A few months ago I jarred a pound. The change in that short time is obvious. The jar note is delicious; dried fruit, fig with a touch of citrus.
I immediately ordered another pound to the jar. I'm looking forward to seeing how much it improves in a years time.
My only complaint is that it's no longer sold by the pound. The only bulk option is 8oz, 1.5lb or 5lb.
I don't know what took me so long to discover this. Probably since it has a "splash of rum" and I've disliked every flake aromatic I've ever tried. But this -- it's hard to describe the difference -- really is actually a really good non-aromatic with a splash of rum, and tastes like that's all it is. This is my desert island tobacco now.
High-quality tobacco at a bargain price makes this an outstanding value. This is sure to please any Virginia/ VaPer lover. In the jar, there is a bright grass, hay-like aroma that is very pleasant. It is bulk so moisture content may vary, mine came at the perfect moisture content. With flakes, I prefer to fold and stuff and this method works great with PS Navy Flake. Depending on how you fold and how tightly you pack it may take a couple of charring lights but once it gets going it smokes down to a fine white ash with very few relights. Taste is slightly sweet and citrusy with a little spice from the perique which is barely noticeable. The tobacco seems young and this definitely improves tremendously with a little age but can be enjoyed fresh as well. Highly recommend this blend.
This tobacco is surprisingly good. As a "cheap" bulk blend the quality is amazing. If you let it age for even a few months it transforms into one of the best Virginia's available. I just fold and stuff. Well worth the money.
I love this Navy Flake. However, it is not for the new pipe smoker. It has great Virginia flavor and sweetness, but also packs a NICE PUNCH . It could become my new go to flake Virginia !
Rub it out and you'll be rewarded with the most sublime smoking experience. Service from tobaccopipes.com was first rate!
