The Danish Pipe Shop G Flake

Notes: G Flake comes from an idea created when The Danish Pipe Shop presented VV92 in 2016 where they used grappa in a pipe tobacco for the first time. Nikolaj Nielsen – CEO of The Danish Pipe Shop – is a big fan of Italian grappa and this passion created the idea of VV92 and now G Flake. G Flake is top quality matured Virginia tobacco sprayed with real Italian dark aged grappa and then tinned. The woody taste of grappa combined with alcohol, natural sugar and Virginia makes a perfect match. The Virginia flake is equivalent to My Own Blend number 45 and 333. This is a perfect tobacco to smoke right away, but also for cellaring. 50th anniversary pipe tobacco from The Danish Pipe Shop! After several successful house blends like Mr. Nielsen, Mrs. Nielsen, Brown Plug, River Plug, VV92, Beginner’s Luck and B. S. Flake The Danish Pipe Shop present a new unique house blend called G Flake to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2019.

Reviewed By Date Rating Strength Flavoring Taste Room Note
Jan 26, 2019 Mild to Medium Mild Medium Pleasant
The very hay-like, grassy and citrusy, lightly dark fruity, woody and earthy Virginias also sport acidic, smoky, honey, and floral notes. The rich, woody grappa is a little more obvious than the natural sugar topping. Both work to enhance, compliment, and moderately sublimate the Virginias, although there is a touch of distracting alcohol present. The strength and nic-hit are a little closer to medium than it is to mild. The taste level just reaches the medium mark. It doesn’t quite venture into bite territory, but I do recommend a slow puffing cadence as the acidic quality of the tobaccos is more noticeable if you go hard at it. Burns a tad warm, but clean, at a slightly slow pace with a very consistent sweet and woody, savory flavor that translates to the lingering after taste. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs a little more than an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke. Should benefit from some aging.
