I got the unscented bulk... This one is for the virginia lover. Maybe a little to boring for the smoker who likes a more complex smoke. This is top quality carolina. It's sweet, lightly scented with something or other.

I reach for this in the morning or as an all day smoke.

I smoked lots of tobacco flakes, one in particular that I bought in Edinburgh in 1992, it was a dream. As what I have not yet found, but this is really good, lets just like anise aftertaste. I bought 2 oz by 4Noggins to prove it, came entirely perfect, very humid as I like. For lovers of the VA, my advice is to at least try it. Smoked in a pipe straight and small, with very light load, appreciate its great taste. I would recommend it to anyone, but perhaps not very easy to smoke very humid. To me the VA, like so, as the time in Scotland!

Pipe smoker, find this flake!

half a year has passed since my first review of bcrf, and it's time for some additional praise: this is quite simply one of the finest virginis available. very clean tasting, with discreet sweetness and citrusy-woodsy flavours, and a remarkable depth considering that it is mild-medium. it is now one of my absolute favourites. an exquisite, refined tobacco!

with this one and the virginias from sam gawith available, one can hardly ask for more. but i still look forward to trying other probably splendid offerings from g&h 🙂

be aware, though, that the "nina ricci"-content - the etherical flavour barely noticable - that i mentioned in the first review, seems to vary. my first batch had enough in the room note for my wife to notice it, the second did not.

update: last night, wife described room note as "nina ricci" :-/

05.31.2007 what briarrabbit said, except that i find it to be of medium strength 🙂

Absolutely first class. Reminds me of Sobranie Flake, which I smoked in another life. Beautiful, untainted, cool smoking Virginia, but not easily come by in England. Glengarry and Bright CR are both a better prospect than Ennerdale. I regret giving the latter four stars.
