The word is that this is Stokkebye's Luxury Navy Flake sporting new clothes and an increase in price. Perhaps so. I don't have any LNF around to do a direct comparison, but this did smoke a lot like my memory of LNF, and I checked my tasting notes which seemed to concur. Same beautiful presentation of nicely cut flakes, same tin nose of dark fruit and hay, same nice bread notes with plummy perique and a top dressing of something that adds sweetness.

Somehow, however, I think this one hit me better. Perhaps it's the cool paintcan tin with the internal "tinfoil" cover. Perhaps it is a different blend. But this one was very, very good - almost a 4 star blend in my book. It was a little sweeter than I like, and by that I mean unnaturally sweet. But the sweetness wasn't overly citrusy, it was more of a mellow sweetness, like the difference between brown over white sugar. A nice toastiness with a hint of hay... kind of a moderately sweetened cereal nature that was very compelling. Burned beautifully, too, and took the match like a champ. Really nothing remotely negative to say in an objective sense. Not terribly complex but a tobacco that's steady on a very good flavor makes for a great blend. While this one might miss greatness by the smallest of margins, it's one I may buy again. More likely, I'll first buy some LNF and do a side-by-side. Well worth an audition for VaPer fans!

I bought this tobacco by bulk. Looks like PS's Luxury Navy Flake and the taste is also close but a little bit less sweetness. I can say this is quality blend,taste good,and no tongue bite. Unfortunately, not the best for me so minus one star.

I have really been enjoying my little foray into the world of Comoy blends. I have ordered all of them and have been nothing but pleased with every one I have tried so far.

Cask N0.4 is a beauty of a "navy" flake. We wont get into the debate on what makes a flake a "navy" flake. It seems that the navy moniker can be used to denote a number of characteristics. Either way, this is a great blend.

I too, like other users have heard the rumors that this blend is really Stokkeby's DLF in a spiffy new suit. Not quite sure to be honest, but I am sure about the taste.

This is a very respectable navy flake. While it was not a serious moment of pipe smoking nirvana, it was very enjoyable. The flake comes in a lighter color, and I could tell by the appearance this one would be in the higher frequencies when it comes to Virginias. I could tell this would have that nice lemony hay like citrus zing.

The flavor was very nice and totally unobtrusive. Some blends complexities require your full attention to be appreciated. This one just chugged along while I did different chores and was an excellent companion. Monetary constraints aside, this would make an excellent all day smoke.

The flavor mid bowl became a little deeper and darker than I expected. Definitely nice. I can definitely detect the perique involved in my nose.

I do think there is a light topping here. Maybe maple nor molasses? Not enough to come off as an aromatic but an interesting little twist.

I would definitely recommend this blend. Give it a try.

This is classified as a “simple navy flake”, but there’s no rum topping in this blend. This is really a bright Virginia flake that has been flavored with a bit of Perique. I can’t bring myself to classify this blend as a “real” VAPER because in my estimation the Perique element is simply too light. That being said, this flake works quite well! It’s easy to smoke, offers a decent amount of flavor and its behavior is quite civil.

This flake is actually very, very close to Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake (LNF), but to my tastes there are some differences (at least in my two samples of tobacco). No. 4 is greener and grassier than LNF and just slightly less sweet, but in fairness, the differences in taste may represent nothing more than the differences that exist in different batches of tobacco.

In a blind taste test it’s a little difficult to differentiate between the two. But one thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the difference in price—LNF costs about 20-25% less than No. 4, so LNF is the better bargain.

As with LNF, Cask No. 4 earns 3-stars.

This tobacco is absolutely identical to Peter Stokkeby's Luxury Navy flake. My advice is to buy whichever is cheaper, usually Stokkeby. When MacBaren Navy Flake went up in price I switched to Stokkeby's which is almost the same but very slightly milder.
