This is a delicious Va/Per with Cavendish, the tobacco quality and the presentation is truly outstanding, the smoke tastes deep and smooth Virginia, not much spicy however with an incredible deepness, complexity and variation, not strong in nicotine but full in flavor, this one and Escudo N.D. are definitely the best Va/Per spun cacks out there, truly top quality Virginia! Exceptional Blend, Highly Recommended! Give it a try!

* Bad ** Good *** Excellent **** Exceptional

I have smoked several bowls in a meerschaum that I usually reserve for full english blends. I didn't rub it out, just took a medallion, rolled it and stuffed it in. Works out just great for a 7/8's bowl 1 1/2" deep. No tongue bite, which is new for me with a virgina/cavendish blend. Oldest son quit cigarettes and I've got him going on a couple of well broken-in corncobs. Will introduce him to Flake Medallions this weekend.

Mine was a little bitey right out of the tin, perhaps some drying will improve this. Overall, a well packaged quality tobacco.

Flake Medallions is a high quality VaPer with mostly lemon Virginias and its share of Perique. Somewhere I've read someone comparing it to PS Bullseye Flake, but all they have in common is the looks: FM is tastier, stronger and it's got a lot more Perique than BF.

In my VaPer ranking, this is a couple of steps below Escudo and above Bullseye Flake. Give it a try and decide for yourself.

A very nice change of pace from my usual favorites, both on the flavor and the presentation of the tobacco in disk form.

I have not tried another offering from Davidoff yet, but this one offers genuine VA taste combined with the occasional peppery spiciness of the Perique, which gives this mixture strenght. Once in a blue moon, the sweetnees of the black CA emerges.

High quality, nice disks, good smoke. Recommended.

This bakie is something else...From the moment you open the tin you realise that you will enjoy a truly natural smoking experience and this is one of my great reasons for switching from cigarettes to pipes. I really enjoy it because is strong, so I get some nicotine and the taste is sweet (but not too sweet) due to the black Cavendish, perique appears more and more as you progress and the Virginia serves as the base. The quality is high the taste (very nice) is that of tobacco with no artificial, it does not bite and it smokes cool and dry. It leaves me with a dry mouth which is something I really like and generally this tobacco fulfils my expectations. I can smoke it for two hours once in a while and never feeling hungry for nicotine.

I highly recommend this bakie to everyone who wants a natural smoking experience with some nicotine

My 50 gram tin was marked Davidoff and presented nicely formed disks ~ 2"D with a 1/2" core of the Black Cavendish that were a beauty to behold. Moisture content and packing were fine and the burn rate and lack of relights appreciated. I thought both the Perique and Black Cavendish were way in the background and found this blend to be slightly harsher than Stokkebye's Luxury Bullseye Flake which appears very similar in design. Since that tobacco is available in bulk @ lower unit cost and I enjoyed it more, that remains my pick.
