W.O. Larsen Navy Flake

A superb blend of golden Virginia tobaccos spiced with Louisiana perique. Pressed in cakes and aged before it's cut into delicate slices. To this medium strength flake is added rum to enhance the round and natural tobacco taste.

One of the world's most underrated VaPer blends, Larsen's Navy Flake is a dandy! Nicely rich Virginia leaf that is obviously top-shelf, combined with the real Louisiana born and bred Perique, offers a strong VaPer trail at the match. In fact, I don't think I've ever smoked a VaPer with this much strength. It demanded my attention and got it!

W.O. Larsen - Navy Flake.

When I opened up my tin I was a little surprised at how bright in colour the flakes were, I about needed my sunglasses on! The flakes are superb in the area of moistness. They really demonstrate what 'perfection in hydration' means.

With Navy Flake I find the Perique definitely takes a stronger stance in the taste. I can notice the Virginia albeit it's nowhere near as heavy as the Perique. Nicotine is fairly strong, it's not a total 'head wrecker' but it's a very satisfying blend with N nonetheless. Other than the two tobaccos I struggle to notice any underlying flavours, I find it's a very steadfast Va-Per. I don't get any bite from this all the way through and the temp' is not too warm. This gives a brill' burn for the whole pipe long. It only needs moderate maintenance with the odd tamp unless you leave it un-puffed for too long.

As I can't get this in the U.K I think I may have to stock up on my next order from the Danish Pipe shop!

Four stars.
