Cobblestone - Chess Queen.

Firstly, it isn't a flake but is a ribbon. Some websites categorise it as a broken flake, but as it isn't coarse I'd just call it a ribbon cut. Medium brown makes up the most of it, with very few lighter specks. The smell, although VaPer-fruity, has a touch of ''dough'' to it. The hydration of it made it ready to smoke the moment it was opened.

To me, the tobacco flavour's like a step down from your average VaPer; the Burley rounds the flavour and reduces any Perique-alacrity. The pole-position is held by the Virginias. Fruity (more dark fruit from the red Va than citrus from the bright Va), bready, and fairly sweet. The Perique is about the same weight as the Burley. There's a ''spiciness'', white pepper, but it isn't too much. I find the Burley gives a flavour of fairly sweet nuts, rather than being exponentially ''rugged''. The only added flavour I detect is a very mild vanilla-creaminess. It burns at an average pace, doesn't bite (me!), and is medium in temperature.

Nicotine: maybe medium. Room-note: nice.

Chess Queen? Definitely worth 3 stars, falls short of four:
