An excellent aromatic flake, consisting of dark and golden Virginias, double-fermented black cavendish and a touch of burley, flavored with the sweetish-sweet notes of maple syrup, caramel and vanilla. A gentle smoke flavor with cooling properties.

John Aylesbury - Dragon Flake.

Unlike the picture here mine arrived in a round tin. But, the tobacco inside is still contained in the paper insert that's shaped for the square tin, so it doesn't look 'right'! The paper holds two rows of wide, dark and medium brown flakes which have a few light flecks over them. Although they're wide there isn't much thickness to them so fully rubbing is a doddle. The moisture's good.

At first it's the sweet toppings that rule the roost, the maple and caramel, it takes until about a quarter of the way in for the vanilla to join in; albeit, it still doesn't have the power of the other two. At the start the sweetness seems a little overpowering, but when the vanilla arrives it abates some of this. The tobacco character's constructed of just Virginia and black Cavendish, I get no Burley. But, the added flavours are heavy, so they might be masking it! It burns steady, and very cool. I've smoked lots of Dragon' this morning and haven't had one bite from it.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Dragon Flake? A well put together smoke that deserves a recommendation. But, should you not like sweet aromatics steer clear!

Three stars.
