Pressed brown and red fire cured Virginia, full and soft of taste, are cut into long flakes and together with a pinch of perique, to round off the whole, they provide a fitting tribute to the "pater noster" of the Dutch/Belgian Pipe Smokers Forum: Janneman.

The main tobacco is the fire cured red Virginia, which is very tangy, ripe fruit sweet with a bit of earth, and some spice. In a support role is the earthy, dark fruity pressed brown Virginia, which also has a few blades of grass, some wood, and a touch of floral vegetation. A pinch of raisiny, figgy, spicy perique lurks the background in most every puff, though I think it’s just a little more than a “pinch” as the description claims. The nic-hit is just past the mild level. The strength is mild to medium, and the taste falls just shy of the medium threshold. Won’t bite, and has no harsh or dull spots. Well blended, you’ll notice every nuance most of the time. The long flake is a little moist, but needs no dry time, and easily breaks apart to suit your packing preference. Burns at a moderate pace, cool, clean, and smooth with a consistent flavor from start to finish. Requires a minimum number of relights for a flake, and leaves very little dampness in the bowl. The after taste and room note are pleasantly sweet with some spice. An all day smoke which will hold the interest of the experienced smoker, and makes a good starter blend for those interested in trying a VaPer for the first time.

Mild Mild Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The smoker is greeted with a long coil of tobacco that takes up the whole can , similar to Marlin Flake . The tobacco is light brown and the tin note is pleasant much like a usual virginia flake . The moisture level is near perfect . This is what I would refer to as a crossover tobacco , that being the junction of virginia and perique , not a perique bomb. . The virginia is the major player , haylike and slightly citrusy.The perique is a very lite hit and you must smoke patiently and slowly to engage it . HU seems to make a range of vapers all excellent , this being the mildest in terms of perique . I might compare this to Astley#2 which is also a mild perique hit but that is a ribbon and this is a flake . Sitting on my deck , in the evening , with a brandy , puffing slowly , a whisper of perique began to drift up from the pipe , slight at first , a little more pronounced after a few puffs . A moment for comtemplation a chance to review events and make plans …. or just appreciate the evening . Yes , this is a vaper , and a great one , but only for those willing to slow down and make the evening last .
