The most strong tobacco made with different Virginias, pressed to a cake and rubbed in broken flakes. If you like it strong... then you will be surprised.

Strong Medium to Strong Full Pleasant to Tolerable

The Virginias are citrusy with plenty of dark stewed fruitiness, a little grass and a bit of deep earthiness. The Lakeland topping is strong, and sublimates the tobacco flavor to a large extent, and while it diminishes some after the half way point, it always remains to compete with the Virginias for attention. Burns cool, slow and requires some relights. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, but no dottle and no bite. Has a strong nic-hit. One of the strongest Lakelands I have smoked. If you like heavily scented Lakelands, you’ll enjoy this very smooth tasting flake. If you don’t, you’ll never get into it no matter how hard you try. Hence the neutral two star rating.

I would agree with most of JimInks Review, except that I didn't find any Lakeland topping, or any topping for that matter. A 'strong Lakeland flavor' for me would be something like GH Dark Plug Rose Geranium or SG RB Plug, while a light one would be something like GH Glengarry Flake. Perhaps those who dislike all Lakelands should avoid this, but those who enjoy both Lakelands and unflavored strong flakes should give this a try and decide for themselves.
