Sutliff: Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-442-0071

The fourth installment of Sutliff's highly anticipated, seasonal pipe tobacco, Cringle Flake 2022 is a blend of aged, partially stoved, 21-year-old Red Virginias and 19-year-old Perique. This incredible holiday mixture presents an exceptional flavor right out of the tin with a deep richness sure to improve even further with additional age. Contributing to that mature flavor, the flue-cured leaf has undergone a unique secondary fermentation process, steamed for one hour before being combined with the aged Perique and pressed and cut into flakes. Naturally sweet with spicy, piquant undertones, the result is incredibly complex with notes of stone fruits, earthy spice, and molasses.

Presented with cheerful and seasonally merry tin art with customizable "To:" and "From:" fields, Sutliff's Cringle Flake 2022 is the perfect gift for that special pipe smoker in your life, especially if that pipe smoker is you.

Not bad

Product: Sutliff Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
This is not bad, I sprinkle a little red Virginia with every bowl and it makes a huge difference with enhancing the Perique and overall flavor of a decent Va/per. I don’t really think the aged ingredients make any impact on this blend. The flakes are... Read More
Superb Blend

Product: Sutliff Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
Never mind Robert P. No one asked what his pronouns are and he got all mad. I have to let this dry for about 30 minutes to achieve its optimal peak smoking moisture. Musty, earthy but most importantly…TASTY. A few relights. I might have to buy ... Read More

I only had a chance to try a bowl of 2021 Cringle flake…but I enjoyed it enough that I picked up 10 tins of the Cringle flake 2022. It lacks in way of reminding me of Christmas at all, and hence the reason it didn’t get 5 stars. But I can say this 20... Read More
Hold it a year!

Product: Sutliff Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
I got a tin, cracked it open, smoked a couple of bowls...like the stars reflect, it's ok now but I would buy it and put it up a couple of years. I do that each year with these and try to hold off even longer.
Meh

Cringle Flake 2022 definitely needs some dry time before packing. Even then, multiple relights were needed. Flavor is acidic with hints of dark fruits (think cherry, plum, etc). It’s not the most enjoyable thing I’ve ever smoked. Will revisit again... Read More

I enjoyed this tobacco but will definately put it in my cellar to age longer.
Faaaaantastic!

I’m very happy that I decided to pick this up, and right before the 2022 sold out! The 21 year old red VA is rich, sweet, and delicious! Perfect peppery spice from the perique adds a nice layer in between all of the goodness from the virginias. ... Read More

Product: Sutliff Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
I’m a sucker for a good Red Virginia dominant blend and this series has been excellent. The balance between the Virginia and Perique is lovely. Enough Perique to add a spicy and peppery counter to the sweet and tangy Virginias. My only wish was that ... Read More

This was my 2nd ever pipe tobacco to smoke. Even with my poor piping skills, this made for a very good learning curve experience. Lit well, tasted great. Will be buying more to cellar!
Not Worth It

Product: Sutliff Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
I opened the tin in which the paper was not neat. It appeared to be tossed in the case and was the worst packaged tin I have ever received. It was moist but had almost zero smell and almost most flavor once smoked. Not sure what happened to my tin, b... Read More

Love the creaminess of this blend. It has an initial mild tangy flavor. The perique is well blended and subtle. The Virginias are not overly sweet, burns slow and doesn’t bite. The room notes are pleasant and the flavor is mild (3/5). Good smoke to e... Read More

My first time getting a chance to buy Cringle Flake. It doesn't burn very well even after drying for a couple days. It just ends up burning my tongue trying to keep it lit.
very nice!

Product: Sutliff Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
Tin note of pungent fermentation, spices, and tart sour fruitiness. The mostly dark brown flakes are a little on the thick side, moisture level is a little high and may benefit from some drying out. Rubs out with some effort. Burns slow with many rel... Read More

Its not a mad smoke. Has a little sweetness, not much bite. Does need to let dry a little before smoking.
Earthy and Spicy

Product: Sutliff Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
Tastes as would be expected given the components and the Cavendish processing of the Virginias. No distracting casings or topping. Unique in my experience for holiday tobacco blends. An enjoyable change of pace but definitely different. Agree that wo... Read More

Wow-they did it agin, very impressed, I had both a tin of 2021 cringle flake 2 tins of the 2022- last years flake is a little sweeter I compared them both. The 2022 cringle flake is not as sweet as last year’s flake. I think this year’s cringle flake... Read More

Same as the one from last year….Virginias were 20 years old last year and Perique was 18…this edition has 21 years Virginias and 19 years old Perique…not my cup of tea!
