- Room Note:
This is a very good aromatic flake that has a regular in my rotation for a long time. For starters the tobacco note is very pleasant and then the topping takes it to next level. The cut is a very unique flake with good visual appeal in the colors and waviness caused by the twist of the blend. Lighting and burning is a breeze, can easily smoke an entire bowl with hardly any excess moisture and fee relights required. The flavor of the VA. tobacco comes through with the flavor/aroma additive giving a pleasant flavor that is untiring and full. The room note is pleasing but does hang for a time after the smoke.
Considering I've only smoked a few Virginia blends, I feel Iike my input on this particular tobacco won't be very helpful. But here goes, this twist flake is pretty sweet, smooth and burns well for a long time. I can taste the topping sometimes better than others depending on which pipe I use. If I pack 2 whole flakes in my biggest bowl I can immediately taste the vanilla the first good hit. So only big wide bowls for me with this blend. I will be buying 8 oz of this immediately.
This tobacco is great, I bought 2oz and then 8oz and planning on stocking up. Do not get fooled by the low price. I detect some vanilla and coconut along with the grassiness of the Virginia, just an awesome tobacco.
I wish I had never bought this tobacco. It started out as a sample given me by a 'friend'. "Try it, you may like it." It sat on my desk collecting dust for a year or more. Since it was in a small jar, I knew it would be OK. So I tried it. In a matter of three bowls, one after the other I decided I could not live without it any longer. Now, I'm a Gawith Hoggarth & Co. smoker. I love almost everything from those Lakelanders.. But this hit a sweet spot. Not too full, but full flavored, especially the aftertaste. Smoked right down to the bottom of my Peterson Standard. But in all honesty, I can't recommend it. Why? Because I want it all to myself. So don't you buy this. Leave it for me.
Been trying different Virginia tobacco and will definitely buy this again. I can smoke it all day with no bite. Nice sweetness. Not too grassy. Can be a little rough on nicotine so sip it. Love it!
One of the finest I have ever had. For a flake, it's easy lighting and easy burn. The taste is outstanding and one that is easily an all day smoke. I highly recommend it. Being a pipe smoker almost 60 years I have had many different kinds of tobacco, this ranks up at the top. Doc
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.
