Sixty Three Flake was a really naturally sweet deep Red Virginia that had a high sugar content. It aged remarkably quickly and that was one of the reason's H. Simmons blends with this Red Virginia in them were such huge hits back in the 1970s when this special grade of leaf was available to them. If you find a tin, grab it! I've only managed to get one in my lifetime and that was at least 20 years ago and I still remember the richness and depth of the leaf. I smoked my tin up in a hurry and according to my notes from back then (man, I used to have good handwriting), the flakes were rather dry, broke up easily almost like a Krumble Kake, yet due to the broken flake ribbon, burned very slowly and provided an ultra ripe taste. I was using the 1-10 grading system back then and gave it a 12! I also had an asterisk saying that the tobacco was touted as a limited edition. Oh, and I got the tin off of eBay for $16.00. Those were the good old days, huh?
