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.

    A classic

    Sweet, slightly fruity with a light peppery taste all the way through. Medium body. Mouthwatering.

    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 for the fast and friendly service.

    Nice VaPer

    Nice VaPer out of the tin rubbed out with a little dry time. I think it will be a 5 star with some age.
