My favorite Virginia thus far
December 05, 2017
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

On this sunny afternoon, I filled up my favorite Castello pipe with some 2-years aged #400 Superior Navy Flakes. First few puffs and I was amazed as to how wonderful this tobacco benefited from aging. The full taste and great flavors of quality Vir... Read More

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
客观讲,养一段时间后可以抽。而且面对国内价格飞涨的PS,这玩意儿就变得可爱了。至于说味道,出甜可以,甜度挺高的。斗温容易高,而且这草微微刺舌头,从点火到结束,味道是单一的没什么起伏,无惊喜,也不想给什么差评价,毕竟价格摆在这里

I like this Virginia flake very much, particularly in the morning. It is light in body, very subtly sweet and easy to rub out into my briars. The flavor reminds me of graham crackers, with a very nice, understated sweetness. It's a nice morning smok... Read More

Cellaring is a Must

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk

The Poor Man's Capstan
April 28, 2022
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
Smells straight up exactly like raisin bran before smoking. Once you get going it is not in-your-face but there is a sweetness with a good subtle graham cracker flavor that reminds me a lot of Capstan Blue. And that's fresh, not even aged yet. In f... Read More
与奥利克(红法)相匹
July 17, 2021
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
拿到手后抽了一斗,第一感觉就像红法(奥利克)比豪海好抽,高级海军P草应该多一些,完全吊出了V草的甜美,而豪海的P草明显不足只有甜味,这款草我喜欢,喜欢红法(奥利克)的朋友可以尝试这款草,相比红法(奥利克)多一些酸味,比豪海的味道层次更多变,尤其是补火后层次更明显,烟气量比豪海和红法(奥利克)要足,价格又便宜,是款神草,过鼻刺激感刚好,如果是新手请别碰这款草和红法(奥利克),否则会想退坑,新手入V建议从牛眼和豪海入手,几乎没有什么刺激感。
醇厚,很甜
May 16, 2021
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
这草很甜,没什么特色,但也没啥缺点,好比纯粮小烧,肯定没有调制过的酒的香气,但是天然醇厚味道,老烟枪应该会喜欢,有了就抽没有也不会想的草,可以做口粮
温和的弗吉尼亚
March 27, 2021
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
打开袋子立刻就能闻到饼干的香味,就像你儿时常常期许的那样,情不自禁就想放到嘴里吃掉它。收到的草很干,点燃后斗温较高,烟气也保持了饼干的香甜,温和简单让人感到舒适,很满足!
First impressions
July 10, 2020
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
First Impression: bready, molasses, hints of toast, buttery, honey and dark Virginias, faint hints of a Cavendish like sweetness and smoothnes on the retrohale. Absolutely delish. Seemed to get a little bit hot and spicy if pushed

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.
A pleasant smoke all the way through

A simple and yet satisfying smoke all the way through the bowl. I reckon this tobacco may benefit a lot from proper aging. It is now one of my favorites.

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.

平淡 清甜 斗温高难控制
August 22, 2022
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
生草很好闻,浓郁的奶油果脯的味道。抽起来味道平淡了很多,中段开始出甜,甜度可以。刺激性很大,抽起来嗓子和舌头都有些不太舒服。斗温很高,一旦控制不好就高的离谱。草质感觉一般,除了甜度觉得没啥别的优点了。

Great Tobacco Taste

February 13, 2022
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
Not great, not complex, but good. Fair level of natural sweetness with typical hay/grass notes. It is certainly worth a try and since you can start with 1 once to sample there is little to lose.

Tasty Virginia to start the day
December 07, 2020
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
It is a sweet Virginia without being cloying, tasty although somewhat simple without being boredom, and a good companion to start the day. It burns evenly, and requires few re-ignitions.

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
If you enjoy Orlik Golden Sliced this is a great bulk blend to give a go. It's very similar in the light grassy hay like notes and just a bit of the citrusy fruity notes of a typical Va flake. It's an excellent bulk to add to your cellar.

April 09, 2022
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
收到草一打开,好香,有点像花香又有点像烤面包?饼干之类的,很喜欢,和我抽过其他的纯V问起来有点区别,点燃后还是香,而且香气很一致,延续了点燃前的味道,虽然平淡,但是让人舒服,然后真的很甜,很甜,很甜,唯一让我头疼的就是斗温很高,感觉很难控制,轻微的咬舌我倒是可以接受,总而言之很不错,价格也合适,而且重要的是很好买,打算存一些

A smooth, cool, rich smoke without bite and just the right strength. Sweet with hints of honey and some woodsy undertones. Fantastic! I'll definitely buy another 4oz when I'm done with these slices.

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
Generally speaking is great,spicy a lot,but theres a smell of yeast。 強いバージニア風味です、少し辛いですけど、アルコールに似た香りがあります。ちょっと試してもいいと思います。入門者はおすすめしない。 味道前段是很容易发甜的感觉,中段有种类似于酵香的感觉,后端的烟气很薄,不是最好的选择但值得尝试。需要好好控制抽吸节奏。

This stuff has the greatest tin note. It makes you want to take a handful and just eat it. Great smoke for the money. You will not be disappointed.
Great morning smoke!

This is my go-to morning smoke, it pairs great with a cup of coffee. Creamy thick smoke with hints of molasses and brown sugar. A nice sweet smoke!

After 20 days of express delivery, the goods were received. The bulk grass packaging bag was not sealed properly. The grass has already dried. I don't know how to deal with it.
Go-To Navy Flake

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
This is my daily navy flake. I bought a few ounces and then a pound and then three more. So sweet and creamy, but not like an aromatic. Everything you want in a Virginia tobacco, but with visions of honeyed phyllo dough dancing through your head. Fan... Read More
Not strong, but still Outstanding

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
This blend really does taste of honey graham crackers all the way to the bottom. It isn’t as strong as most of the blends I smoke, so I often have to go a couple of days without smoking before I can fully enjoy it. When I do, it’s blissful. If someon... Read More
Tasty Virginia to start the day
December 07, 2020
Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
It is a sweet Virginia without being cloying, tasty although somewhat simple without being boredom, and a good companion to start the day. It burns evenly, and requires few re-ignitions.
Flop

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
Fresh. The tin and room note smells like honey graham crackers as expected from the reviews. However, I was disappointed because the taste is completely bland and flavourless. Might be some burley in there, but can’t say for sure which leads to a cig... Read More
Tasty! But not quite a flake?

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
So off the bat, was this more of a broken flake for anyone else? Or did I just get a batch from the bottom of the barrel. Anyhow, it's a quality plain Virginia with no discernible topping. Smoked like a dream in my meerschaum after very, very easily ... Read More

I was expecting a virginia navy flake, tobacco flavour forward - but I found this heavily aromatic with a caramel butterscotch flavour. It ghosted pipes even. Reading some of the other reviews, this could be just me, but it's too heavily flavoured fo... Read More
Dry Smoke

All Virginias taste similar to me. Very dry smoking, much like a hay taste. This isn’t any different.
Take it slow and enjoy.

I have been smoking pipes since I was in college. I'm now 63. This is one of the most superb VA tobacco I've smoked. Had it set up in a jar for 2 years. Just had my first crack at it last night. WOW.

One of my favorite Virginias. Has a honey-like sweetness. Definitely an underrated blend.

The tobacco itself is good, but it has a flavouring or a topping that turns me off.

Product: Newminster No.400 Superior Navy Flake Bulk
Good overall blend....but for me it seemed to burn a little hot. If you slow the cadance down you'll get a clean VA smoke tho. Sweet w/ occasional notes of Grass/Hay that VA's are known for. I'm not 100% sure whats in the topping but after the first ... Read More

This was a good straight virginia. Light grassy notes. It burned slowly and was satisfying all the way to the bottom of the bowl. I just wish it had some perique in it. This could be a regular smoke.

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

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.
