Genuine Virginia/Perique blends are the crowned jewel of the pipe tobacco world. A blend of this nature is even better when it has been pressed into a flake and allowed to age for a short amount of time. As soon as you pop the tin and whiff the intoxicating aroma of Perique, then you know this is a fine tobacco. But when you finally light it, you are transported to a euphoric state of pipe smoke lore. Order your new tin of Solani Yellow Label tobacco today!

Fast becoming my favorite VaPer. Good flavor, enough sweetness, good quality leaf.
Solani is a great replacement for McClelland tobacco. Please continue to offer it as an option.
Taste great and no bite.
Solani Virginia Flake 633 is a pleasant all day smoke. I love the tin aroma, something from the past when most of the best Virginia Flake came from England. The 50g tins are the best, the 100g tins are not airtight and don't age well.
Very smooth and tasty smoke.
Make no mistake - this is a Virginia and Perique flake. The tin note is perfect. The presentation is perfect upon folding back the paper. The tobacco itself looks perfect. The texture is perfect. It is a clean delicious smoke. I don't like to give any negative on a tobacco as it is something to be enjoyed and who am I to diminish another man's taste - the only possible downside might be the cost. If this were a $10.75 tin, it would probably rule the world of VaPers. It does have tobacco from a region with which my pallet is not familiar. It is unique to itself within this style of tobacco. If you buy this, you will only experience a disappointment that comes with riding in a new Mercedes Benz or 750 BMW: that you probably cannot afford to consistently repeat the experience.
I highly enjoyed this blend and will definitely be ordering more. But do yourself a favor and open and jar the 100g tin right away as mine was not vacuum sealed and only in a plastic bag. Jarring right away would have avoided me having to rehydrate the blend.
