A Lemon and Bronze Virginia flake previously known as "Dark Flake" or Mixture 179. The flake is gently rubbed out to give the smoker cool burning qualities. Mild to medium strength.
Notes: Only available at Dunhill's Store, London.

This is, or was, known as Dark Flake. I was lucky enough to discover a tin; lucky as I don't think this has been available for a good 20 years. Definitely a decent amount of Virginia in it...it has a leathery scent with a slight citrus edge. Smokes cool, mereist hint of tongue bite if you puff too hard. Difficult to compare this venerable specimen to modern tobaccos for obvious reasons, but i would hazard a guess that Sam Gawiths FVF aged as long as this would still have an edge. I can see why this was discontinued....it's average in every way.
