The matured brown Virginia flakes provide some fermented tart and tangy citrus, dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, vegetation, some grass, mild floralness, and very light spice along with a touch of sweet, stewed figs. Also sports a light sugary fruit topping. The strength and taste levels are a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. Won't bite or get harsh, and barely has any rough edges. Needs no dry time. Burns cool, clean and a tad slow with a very consistent flavor from top to bottom. Leaves very little dampness in the bowl. Requires a few relights. Has a very pleasant, short lived after taste and room note.

A slightly sweetened, deep, bready, brown Va flake whose moisture content makes it ready to smoke right out of the bag. It's a lovely brown Va companion to all of KBV's Red Va blends. Will be ordering a lot more.

Bag note is citrus, sweet, grass moisture level was fine. I rubbed out the flake just a bit. Lite , citrus and fruit, Smoking; Some hay slightly sweet but not too much and a slight coco note. Has a slightly citrus and the sweet molasses note that gets more pronounced as you progress through the bowl. Burns a bit hot if puffed hard but no bite. I would suggest a deep bowl and a lite cadence to obtain the best flavor. Super smooth smoke. super lite topping just gives a bit of sweetness ,just a straight mild Virginia. Nic hit is mild burns very clean very few relights required. An all day smoke. Update this blend becomes much more flavorful as you progress through the bowl.
Pipe Used: many briars and Morta

an easy smoking mildy sweet brown va flake. a figgy and raisiny note from the pouch. perfect moisture out of the pouch, i just rubbed it out and lit it up. taste was mildly sweet and bready, typical brown va flake nothing mind bending here. smoked slow no bite and burned to ash. not bad but a little to one dimensional for me.

KBV Mr. Christian’s Brown Flek- Brown Virginia flakes are my favorite tobacco and this one is very good . Very similar to G&H brown flake unscented . It has a topping similar to the scented version but milder and no lakeland scents . Figgy and bready . Earthy with minor hay and spice . Moisture is perfect to smoke right away . Not too sweet . A slow pace is required which is normal for this type of tobacco . From me it gets a 4 .
