Gold Slice pipe tobacco is a long cut Virginia Flake manufactured in the traditional British style. Pressed into cakes, lightly stoved, then cut after aging. Gold Slice has the naturally fresh and tangy taste characteristic of the best Virginia Flake. Long burning and cool smoking, with a pure tobacco aroma, this flake can be rubbed fine for indoor use, or smoked rough outdoors. No flavorings, nothing artificial. Just rich tasting, highest quality pipe tobacco.

Just as advertised. Most flakes are almost 4" long and have an ideal moisture content and pliability for my fold and pack technique. Smokes cool, without condensation or bite. Great VA taste so give it a try.

Pipe Used: various briar bowl sizes

Age When Smoked: unknown

A rather long Va. flake in a round can . At first it looked to me like Sutlif flake with that long brown and golden visage . Upon smoking it had that hay like taste that plain Va. flakes sometimes give . I left the rest in the can a while and it really took off . This has become my go to afternoon smoke as it is not delicate enough for the A.M. smoke . That being said I now go through a can a week at least and keep a few cans in reserve . This is not a folded flake so you need to take some care in rubbing it out but it compares very well to my favorite flakes . At the price , and considering the availability , this is a sleeper .

Wessex - Gold Slice.

My blend didn't have the appearance I expected. From the description and other reviews I'd prepared myself for a long coil but my tin contained only one stack of flakes measuring approx. 3x2 inches, and rather thin. Folding and stuffing was never an option, because they're thin and stuck together (although not too moist) they crumble apart as they're removed from the tin.

Gold Slice takes to the flame easily, giving a consistent burn, but can go fairly quickly if not smoked tentatively. The flavour's nice enough, having ample sweetness, a slight tang, hay, and a bready quality. Most of the usual Virginia citrus/grass/sharp notes elude me, keeping the way clear for a more mature flavour; there's hay, but nothing too sharp. Tongue bite stays out of the game.

Nicotine: below medium. Room-note: pleasant.

Gold Slice? A good smoke but not a 'great' smoke. Three stars:
