This a blend of all Virginias like the Oxford flake only milder in body and significantly lighter in color due to the tobaccos used.

Flavorful Virginia leaf that burns slow due to the cut. I prefer a little more (okay, a lot more) strength in my Virginia leaf and this is one of the lightest Virginia Flakes I have ever smoked. Not much change in the flavor as one meanders his/her way down the bowl.

A very pleasant smoke in a convenient and neat flake or slice format. Rather than rubbing this out, I simply folded it and it lit up nicely and burned slowly. The tobacco gave a mellow Virginia flavor with no bite. So, this might be a bit too mellow and plain for the VaPer smoker, but I could easily smoke this all day. I preferred this tobacco flavor compared to Park Square.

I bought eight ounces of this in the search for a milder flake and am not disappointed. There seems to be a slight casing used as evidenced by the aroma from the tin and the initial flavor when lighting to about 1/3 down the bowl. Perhaps it is the figs noted in the previous review. I find this initial taste and aroma somewhat annoying as I like pure tobacco without any additions, but it is not enough for me to dislike the blend or not recommend it. After about 1/3 of the bowl has been smoked this flavor pretty much disappears and it becomes a typical sweet Virginia. It does not have the tongue burning/mouth burning characteristics of Peretti's London and Oxford Flakes which prpbably comes from smoking them too much, thus, it is a good all day smoke or when one needs relief from a stronger tobacco.

This is a true traditional Virginia flake; nothing to share with the great McClelland productions, it's much more similar to the European way of manufacturing a flake tobacco.

The slices are thin, pretty large(1 1/2" or so) and about 2 1/2" long. The colour is a light shade of brown with some darker stripes and golden flecks.

The smell is classic Virginia, dry and a little spicy, reminding od dried fruits (figs in particular), very similar to Capstan.

The flakes rub out very easily, the moisture content is perfect, and pack easily too. It starts with just one match without problems.

At the match it again reminds of Capstan, the same intense dried fruits flavour and the same tongue bite at the beginning. Later on the flavour keeps consistent though mild and the bite disappears. The body is light to medium, suitable for an all day smoke. The smoke proceeds without evolution or particular points of interest, it isn't a complex blend, but it goes well: cool, dry, no problem, just a little cigarettish.

All in all a good tobacco, but too mild in strenght and flavour to suit my taste. You can think about it as a milder version of Capstan (blue tin).
