Samuel Gawith Scottish Autumn Flake

Scottish Autumn Pipe Tobacco by Samuel Gawith has the natural ripeness of the long-pressed Virginias. Along with the slow-burn this makes Scottish Autumn a most suitable flake for smoking on its own, or blending with other tobaccos.
Notes: This flake is part of a limited Four Season series in a wild collaboration of Samuel Gawith, Stanislaw and DTM. These flakes are: Irish Spring Time Flake, English Summer Flake, Scottish Autumn Flake, and Winter Time Flake.

This has some nice flavors, but also has a couple of characteristics that I don't much care for. Very tangy citrus notes and a touch of grass, a modest sweetness with darker fruit flavor. Some of the sweetness is an addition. The tang can be a bit sharp at times on the retrohale and the burn is a little inconsistent offering wispy smoke at times and fairly thick smoke at others. A decent smoke, but not entirely to my liking.

Mild to medium in body. Medium in taste. Added sweetness is very mild. Burn is fair.

A just-ok VA flake, slightly sweet. Requires only a bit of drying, and lights ok.

I find it lacking, though, compared to other VAs. The flavor is mediocre and somewhat thin. I just can't think of why I would buy this again over other better VA choices, hence two stars for it's rank relative to better VAs.
