Erik Stokkebye - Evening Flake (4th Generation).

'Evening'? Well yes, in my opinion with this being a mellower VaPer as opposed to a St. James-esc blast of Perique, it's more suited to the evening slot than the morning.

As it's from bulk any excess moisture's abated in the pouch making for a smoke right away. I like to fully rub my flakes and to do so is a doddle with this. The unlit aroma isn't one to imply much Perique, I get more fresh hay from the Virginia than Perique.

Upon lighting my initial impression is of a 'smooth' VaPer. As I expected, it isn't a smash around the head with caustic Perique spice, instead it's more about the Virginias. If you want a leading taste of summer-hay from the Vas then step this way! I'm not finding rich fruit, sweetness, etc., but I get only the herbaceous Va qualities. The Perique? From it comes enough pepper to give some 'zest', but no plums, figs, etc. The burn? Fabulous! Tongue bite remains absent even when forced; a comfortable smoke.

Nicotine: below medium. Room-note: not bad!

Evening Flake? A mild VaPer making a pleasant change for the evening aromatic spot. Four stars:

Highly recommended.

The gold Virginias provide a burst of tart and tangy citrus, plenty of grass and hay, bread, some tart, fairly sour lemon and sugar, a little floralness, light earth, wood and acidity, a few drops of honey, and a couple of pinches of spice. They are the lead components. The earthy, woody, plumy, slightly raisiny, rather spicy perique is a more of a secondary star instead of a supporting player. The strength and nic-hit are in the center of mild to medium. The taste level is a step past that. It won’t bite or get harsh, but sports a few small rough notes. Between the spice, tartness and acidity, you may experience a light tongue tingle if you are a fast puffer. Burns a tad warm at a slightly slow rate with a very consistent favor that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An all day smoke that should age well. Three and a half stars instead of four because of the sour acidity notes.
