This description is an edited version of the CR Flake description from this site:

100% pure virginia leaf with no additional flavours made from a blend of Brazilian, Zimbabwe and Malawi bright virginia leaf. The pressed tobacco as with all flakes, is left to mature to allow for the best combination of flavours.

The various Virginias are grassy and hay-like as they are in the flake version. The differences between that and the plug is the latter is a little sweeter, and a little more floral, though the Lakeland strength is just a percentage point or two more noticeable. The flavors are deeper and stronger due to the pressing of the plug, which is common. It requires some prep and dry time, but I found it better if it’s not completely dried out. Otherwise, you’ll lose a little of what makes this even better than the flake version. Could be an all day smoke depending on how patient you are dealing with plugs. Burns slow, cool with a consistent taste and no harsh or bitter notes.
