None given.

Notes: From Synjeco: Like most SG flakes, this has a very particular pouch aroma; I could compare it to Flake. 7, though the aroma is different. I could say that the smell is "perfumy" and spicy, without being overwhelming so. It's relatively easy to rub out and pack. The colors range from bright to dark. I find that the sweetness and the spiciness go their separate ways: The former is mainly felt on the palate and tongue, while the latter more in the nose and nasal cavity I recommend packing it lightly to obtain a more trouble-free combustion. What I don't appreciate it about it is the fact that it can leave the pipe quite dirty, esp. the shank.

To me, like #3 this was still somewhat similar to Grousemoor, but with just a hint of the lemon grass in the pouch. I thought it might have been just from contact with the other 'special flakes', but it is still there, lightly, in the first 1/3 to 1/2 of the bowl. The 'honey' aspect is stronger, and it bit a little in the first half but the rest of the bowl was a somewhat honey-sweetened straight VA
