Whether you’re looking to “graduate” from Aromatics, already have a propensity for Vir/Per blends or just need a break from your heavier blends, Samuel Gawith St. James Flake will deliver. This is one of those rare pipe tobacco blends that can please smokers of all ilk. The blend joins sweet and grassy Virginias with tart Acadian Perique and then presses them together to yield a flavor that is slightly spicy, slightly grassy and entirely delicious.

I found this pipe tobacco to be quite pleasant with an excellent flavor & room note.
I didn’t expect this to be a new favorite of mine, but it’s an excellent va-per in my opinion, I’ve been at this a couple years now and am not brand new but new enough. Absolutely love it on the retro-hale. If you're new to Lakeland blends and have a chance definitely get this one!
Sweet, slightly fruity with a light peppery taste all the way through. Medium body. Mouthwatering.
Very good blend. There is a lot going on here. I highly recommend trying this one.
One of my favorite VA-Per Flakes
The men of Kendal, Cumbria are unrivaled in their acumen for selecting the right leaf and using the right processing techniques to get this finished product. It really is unlike anything on earth. With that said, SJF is best with at least one year of age, if not three. Thank you TobaccoPipes.com for the fast and friendly service.
I been smoking this for 30yrs. It has not changed.
Dis some good baccy.
Dis some good baccy. Grab some today and you’ll be glad you did. Needs some burley but still good stuff.

All the rave reviews you read about this tobacco. Is true. It's real good if you like va/pers.
Nice VaPer out of the tin rubbed out with a little dry time. I think it will be a 5 star with some age.
