Mild to Medium Mild Medium Tolerable

These neatly cut flakes smell sweet and only vaguely orange-like. They are mostly bronze colored Virginia with a few punctuations of bright and near black (perhaps Cavendish?). Taste is fairly mild run of the mill Virginia with some nice earthy undertones of hay and light spicy orange.

Pipe Used: numerous

Age When Smoked: 2 years

Medium Very Mild Medium Tolerable

Big, wide, pale flakes, stacked neatly in the tin. First few smokes had a distinct citrus tang about them, I didn't really like it. I smoked this over a few weeks, mainly in an ozark mountain hardwood pipe and found it to be a sorta cigarette replacement. It tastes like a ciggie, the nicotine is in there but not massive amounts, just pleasant. A few inhales throughout the smoke goes well if you're into that sort of thing.

This is not the best Va flake by a long shot, fresh out of the tin, I thought it was a dud. Dried out (in the tin) it's pretty good, but not earth shattering. Recommended for people wanting to come off cigarettes.

I will not be buying this again, my money will go on dunhill flake.

Mild None Detected Very Mild Unnoticeable

This is a very nicely presented flake.

It smokes evenly and smoothly from top to bottom.

Overall a pleasant biteless and bland Va flake. Like a very good Cigarette. This would be a fine flake for the beginning pipe smoker.

Setting: Driving the car and running errands.

Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

This is a very nice tobacco, mild but full of flavor, it burns amazingly cool and has a very nice natural sweetness to it. The flavor and quality of this tobacco reminds me of old Murray's era “Dunhill Light Flake” which I smoked exclusively for many years.
