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.

As a big fan of VV92 and B. S Flake I was very curious on the result of this G Flake. Its without a doubt a top quality virgina and compared to the VV92 the taste of Grappa is more gentle. This is naturally because G Flake is a flake compared to the VV92. If you like Dunhill Flake, F&T Vintage Flake you will love this one. And remember to buy some extra because it will be awesome when aged.
