A full-bodied traditional Flake tobacco prepared from selected Virginia leaf with a high content of natural sweetness. A pinch of Louisiana Perique is added to increase the richness in taste. Gently matured to bring out its optimum of natural tobacco flavours. Slow burning in your pipe this tobacco provides a pleasantly cool smoke of full-bodied sweet taste with gentle spice in the background.

This is great. Very blonde leaf in the tin with a few dark (perique) strips every now and then. it's offered as a flake, however, in my tin, it was almost like a ready rubbed with huge chunks of flake as soon as you touch it, because they fall apart easily. the tobacco, even though on the dryer side, feels soft and smells incredibly delicious. what I get from the tin note is a hint of chocolate, dried fruit, hay - just that general spiciness in smell yopu get with good virginias and vapers. the flavor while smoking after packing (one of the easiest packs ever...)is great. creamy, a little hay-like, surprisingly spicy (not hot!) and somewhat dark, as opposed to appearance. highly recommended and great value for your money!

One look at the tin, and you'll know that this offering is aimed straight at Capstan's customers. The tin aroma confirms this impression, though the Kriswill is somewhat less grassy and a little sweeter than Capstan's Original Navy Cut.

Nice, thin flakes with no glue or humectants evident, just twist up and drop in pipe -- my favourite type of flake preparation. The taste is sweet, slightly spicy, room note very sweet, but still typically VA.

There isn't much more to tell. Burns down coolly (for a VA), the Perique works more as a condiment than as a major component of the blend, and I end up with some light grey ash in the bowl when finished.

Good stuff, heartily recommendable as an all-day smoke for the VA crowd.
