(3.33)
This dark flake utilizes Virginia and dark air cured perique tobaccos to provide a full and balanced smoke. The prominent flavor notes are sweet tobacco and dried fruit.
Notes: Charatan released Black Flake to fill the gap left by Dunhill discontinuing Dark Flake.

On bowl 3 of this, supposedly a replacement for Dunhill Dark Flake. Its not. The tin note is fruity, the Dark Flake is rawer, more tobacco. The flakes are similar in appearance, cut, thickness, length. Taste is also different, certainly a good quality but not as good as the Dunhill original. The start of the bowl hits you with a definite fruit flavour, not unpleasantly just assuredly. Halfway down the bowl the flavour fades somewhat reverting to a purer tobacco taste. The final shock to the palate is a subtle hint of vanilla just before the last few breaths. An enjoyable tobacco I found but certainly NOT Dunhill Dark.
