Like a lot of pipe smokers out there, I started with aromatics. One day my music professor, and fellow pipe smoker, introduced me to real pipe tobacco, no offense to my aromatic loving brother and sisters out there of course, Balkan Sobranie. He... Read More explained that this mixture gets its flavor naturally and not from adding "syrup" as he called it, to the mixture to create its flavor.. I immediately fell in love with Balkan and threw out my aromatics, and started buying pipes that I could dedicate to this wonderful discovery. The only problem was, I had all of these pipes dedicated to aromatic blends that I didn't want to "ghost" with the Balkan. So years passed, and I discovered this web site and decided to try a straight Virginia blend. I had tried Dunhill cigs, and some of their English blends in the past, so I knew any of their blends would be of the highest grade.. So when I received my Dunhill Flake in the mail, I anxiously rubbed out a pile and filled one of my first pipes, a GBD Pinner and fired it up and WOW!! It had a wonderfully sweet, almost vanilla/fruity taste that I instantly loved.. When I had to relight, I was worried at first that, like aromatics, the flavor would dissipate, and would taste nothing like it had on the first initial puffs.. Not so!! It retained its smooth, bite free, sweet flavor all the way to the end of the bowl. If anything its natural flavors became more apparent, and satisfying, as I continued on.. This is a wonderful, "all day" smoke that leaves a pleasant room note, even to the nonsmoker. It burns evenly and smooth, and has enough vitamin N to satisfy.. It has def earned a place in my rotation, along with Dunhills Nightcap, and I am now able to smoke my other pipes that were gathering dust.. 5 stars all the way!! Read Less

Because virginia tobaccos are high in sugar,it helps me break a new pipe in three times faster.More sugar means more carbon.It will build a carbon cake faster than anything else.The good flavors are a plus,In this high grade flake.

One of the better tasting pipe tobacco I tried, similar to Orlick, but with a sweeter more refine taste.
