Various Virginia grades from Tanzania, Zambia, India and the Philippines form the base of the Tillerman flake. Medium strength, with a pleasant natural sweetness get the Tillerman a subtle chocolate / nut flavor, which harmonizes perfectly with the natural tobacco flavour and gives the Tillerman its individual taste. A wonderfully, spicy and complex tobacco for all hours of the day.

Notes: Aromatics: Nut / dark chocolate/ and a secret

The choice Virginias have a little earthiness and grass to them though the sweetness is somewhat sublimated by the added flavorings, one of which has an alcohol base. There's an occasional mild spice note that helps prevent this from being a one dimensional aromatic, though this isn't the most complex blend made by this company. The chocolate is light as is the nuttiness from one of the toppings. Smooth and creamy with a nice after taste and room note, but it's not a flavor bomb. The nic-hit is very mild. A mild to medium flake designed to offer an all day pleasantness.

Tillerman Flake’s tin note is rather intense and similar to sweet aniseed cookies. You might get scared expecting an overly cased aromatic and nothing could be farther from the truth.

I preferred it rubbed out and gently filled (not packed tightly) in small to medium sized pipes with a wider bowl and without filter. Tillerman needs room to breathe. If you pack or tamp to hard, it has a tendency to clog, especially when fresh.

The taste is predominantly pure, medium-full, brown VAs with just a whiff cocoa and nuts. It is smooth and creamy and didn’t bite me once. In the second half there is also dark chocolate. The Aroma feels and tastes not like a casing, more like a crossover, smoking SG Best Brown Flake in a pipe that’s been used for an aromatic once. Since I’m the kind of guy who likes to create crossovers on purpose from time to time to get that effect, it hits my sweet spot. Leaves almost white, fine ash and little dottle. In the end, Hans Wiedemann makes the terms “smoking” and “aromatic” collide in the same sentence, and that’s really something!

Pipe Used: Briars with and without filter

Hans included this as a sample in a recent order of Dockworker and others; am much intrigued and will be ordering several tins for further "research". Most enjoyable.

Update: wonderful sweetness appears from time to time throughout

Tillerman is a pure virginia flake. Virginias from India and the Philippines form the base of this flake. No sweetened black cavendish. The Tillerman flake is flavored with a combination of nut, chocolate and chili . The result is a light sweet tobacco with peppery notes. The taste changed always between the nutty and chocolaty notes with the background of the chili. The flavour never tastes cheap or chemically. The taste is always interesting and sweet and spicy. A very well made light aromatic tobacco. The nicotine level is for my taste a little bit too low, that is the reason I give this flake only 3 stars. Very good, a bit too light, recommended for natural and aromatic smokers
