The only difference I can see between this production and Navy Cut Flake is that this blend is a broken flake, so my review for the latter is essentially repeated here with a minor variation. The lighter Virginia offers some tart and tangy citrus, bread, grass, and light sugar with a mild vegetative tone as the lead component. The burley is a little nutty, woody, and earthy with some molasses as a supporting player. In an secondary role, the darker Virginia is lightly earthy, woody, mildly tangy dark fruit sweet with a minor spice and slight bread note. The mildly applied rum is a little sweet with a slight spice hit. It doesn’t detract from the tobacco flavor at all, and weakens just a mite after the half way point. The strength and nic-hit are a step short of the center of mild to medium. The taste level is that center. Has few rough notes. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a slightly slow pace with a very consistent, light creamy smoothness from start to finish. The bowl is barely damp at the finish, and the tobacco easily burns to ash. Requires an average number of relights. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke.
