It displays virginia properties, quite mellow on the palate with earthy and hay like undertones.
My favorite Virginia thus far

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
Guys and gals this is a real bargain. I love it fresh or aged a bit. This is a Virginia that from first light to the last puff is creamy and in the pastry realm. It smells like a bowl of Golden Grahams cereal. I like to fold and stuff for best re... Read More

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
Got a small sample of this, lit it up, bit the stem and....the tobacco bit back. It could probably benefit a great deal from cellaring for a year or so, but as-is I can only recommend it as something to smoke while waiting for your next order from sm... Read More

Just ok, but would probably get better if kept in cellar & aged properly.

When I first bought this blend I couldn't help but think 'oh well, had to try it.' I threw it in a mason jar and tried smoking it four months later and got a much stronger whiff of a grassy, slightly honey flavor. Bought a pound of it and stored it i... Read More

Ahem. Stuff looks luscious on the webpage. Thought I'd give it a try. Always looking for a good VA flake. The pouch aroma was to die for: like mild sweetened pistacchio. Anyway, the first bowl or two I was optimistic, looking for a) that solid ... Read More

#400 deserves it's "Superior" namesake, as it's one might fine flake. It's beautiful simplicity. No fancy blending recipe, just a great mix of Virginias with an excellent flavor & aroma. This flake's dry aroma is marked by a very pleasant and unique ... Read More

This is fine flake. Anyone who likes Virginia should give this a go. It is straight Virginia without the Rum and or Perique found in some Navy flake but still a nice flake.
The name says it all

Nice weekend treat for me. Excellent blend of tobacco's in this Navy Flafe. Ask for a sample, you won't be disappointed!!! Age it for at least 3 months and it gets better.
A pleasant smoke all the way through

A simple and yet satisfying smoke all the way through the bowl. I find this tobacco benefits a lot from proper aging. It is now one of my favorites.
Yum!

my first interaction with a flake. The smell is slightly fruity/grassy with honey. It almost smells like an aromatic but it isn't. Reminds me of a sweet summer smell. It smelled so good you almost want to eat it. Again, for my first time ever packing... Read More

Got a sample of this with my order, and gave it a shot in one of the fine Petersons from my late stepdad's collection. My first flake, and delicious! Has a fascinating tin note - like Fruit Roll ups - but has a sweet, toasty flavor when lit.

This is an excellent flake with a nice honey and wheat-toast aroma reminiscent of many Mac Baren products. To my palate, this more closely resembles PS Luxury Twist Flake, rather than the PS Navy Flake offering. Having smoked all three, I find this t... Read More

A pure Virginia delight, earthy, grasslike notes, almost oat like note on the palate. Like all flake, needs to be smoked slow, but it's tasty down to the bottom. This would be a wonderful flake to age. Am going to put some in a mason jar and forg... Read More

This is not a bad tobacco by any stretch, but when compared with Stokkebye's Twist Flake, it just doesn't quite measure up; hence, the deduction of half a star. This one's flakes are the thickest I've ever encountered, and this, I think, make it more... Read More

Newminster #400 Superior Navy Flake has at once a mild, exquisite, full bodied flavor that is reminiscent of Escudo Navy Deluxe. But where this tobacco is smooth and mild, Escudo is stronger with a heavy, bolder note. Newminster being milder than E... Read More

Totally satisfying smoke for a real pipe smoker. Everything is there, the taste, the richness and aroma of a great virginia smoke. I particularly love the subtle sweet and spicy flavour.

This is my #1 Virginia Flake, hands down. As others have mentioned, aging is a huge factor to this tobacco. As little as 30-40 days will make a huge difference in taste and smell. Wait a year or more, and you have flakes of pure joy. This flake rival... Read More

This virginian flake I would describe on the milder side, that said it benefits greatly from storage in small "Ball" mason jars, times as short as one month will make a lot of difference to this tobacco, store in separate jars so you don't ... Read More

I'm not hard on virginias, but I will buy that on occasions, maybe for cellaring to mellow it. It bite a little on the tongue, but it's a smooth smoke with hay/sugar flavor.
