I dislike the stoved Virginia, tastes similar to Cavendish. Burns well, good tobacco if it suits your taste.
I give it an "average" rating only because I know now that I'm not a straight Virginia smoker. There's nothing wrong with it - it's just that it doesn't speak to me with much of anything of flavor or taste. Undeniably, it is a beautiful looking flake with a pleasing tin note.
Great tobacco. First flake I have ever tried. If it goes on sale will buy the 1.5 lb box.
The topping is so well blended that hardly noticeable. I don't know what that other and misc. In the topping but I get an occasional whiff of citrus and hay-like flavor which is pleasant. Pouch smell creamy caramel and flakes came out moist but smokeable I took one and a half flakes folded and squeeze with my fingers to loosen up and filled the pipe. Needed a couple of relights burns easily and evenly. All in all a very enjoyable smoke.
Very good, like all PS VA tobaccos are. Add a little Perique and it would be even better. Very smooth and mellow.
Although PS LTF is classified as a straight Virginia, it's actually a light aromatic.
The light toppings are quite pleasant & do not overpower the natural citrus grassy taste of Virginia.
The description says 'caramel/other' as a topping but I get a slightly sweet hint of coconut, that compliments the slight tang/sharpness of Virginia.
It's got a very pleasant flavor.
The nicotine is closer to medium than mild.
The downside is that when fresh, anything bigger than a small bowl heats my mouth. Quite typical of a straight Virginia.
My 4-star rating is based on the flavor, quality of leaf & the fact that this flake, like Peter Stokkebye's Luxury Navy Flake, will benefit significantly from aging.
There are not many blends that I'd go to the bother of aging but this, like their Navy Flake, will be worth the effort.
I'll report back in 6-12 months time.
I really liked this it smells good and taste good I will be ordering more.
Having been a big English blend smoker for so long I have been now on a straight Virginia kick. Luxury Twist Flake has been a favorite for many months now.
Easy to fold and stuff in the Peterson Silver Fishtail spigot two flakes is perfect. Easy to light and rarely re-lite.
I find the flavor more nuanced than other straight Virginia's. Sweet, but as much as Sutliff 515 RC-1. There are citrus notes in there I would say like the acidity of a Pink Lady apple varietal. A little hay and maybe cedar.
Room note is pleasant and welcoming from the wife that usually suffers through my latakia blends or perique blends.
Been on a Virginia kick lately have several straight Virginia's, this is my go to. Fold and stuff and almost never relight. Sweet and pleasant!
