This is a wonderful VA/Bur. To my mind it is stonehaven without a topping only it seems to have much more of a kick to it than stonehaven or rich dark flake. Imho this blend has the highest nicotine content of all the Germain’s blends. It’s not harsh or rough smoke though. As smooth as stonehaven if not smoother. The smoke is creamy and I got hints of semi sweet chocolate and horse oats. It has a more natural tobacco flavor and smell than stonehaven and this I attribute to the lack of topping on ‘Hampton flake. I think this is Germain’s best dark flake and it is tough to get but very much worth it.

Pipe Used: Kaywoodie meerschaum
