A night out wasn't complete without a trip to the "private club" for a Cuba Libre or two. Round out your evening, or any other time of day, with C&D's After Hours Flake, Virginia leaf sweetened with the caramel and exotic-spiced elixir of the islands: dark rum.
Well done, C&D!!! When i popped this tin felt that rum aroma combined with the tangy and grassy notes from the virginias. Lovely!! this is a cool burning flake and IMO has a decent Nic punch to it. So, this tobacco is to be sipped to avoid the N ... Read Morekick.
A very nice virginia flake and highly recommended! Read Less
Opening a fresh tin of After Hours awakens your senses to a sweet aroma of rum, fruit, and Virginias. Once lighting After Hours, I thought I noticed just a touch of Blockade Runner painted ever so lightly on a canvas of sweet ripe Virginias with jus... Read Moret a spritz of something extra added to it. All of the nuances of classic ripe Virginias are in there such as citrus, hay, and light orange, however, the rum highlights the Virginias and by no means over power or over take the Virginia flavors at all. No one flavor seems to overpower any other but several different layers of sweetness can be detected. I know others have mentioned the Carmel flavor, I personally do not taste it however, I wonder if it could be Cuba Libre (Rum & Coke) that is coming through. At one point, I thought I was even noticing a tiny bit of honey essence. With a light French inhale, you can really notice the sweetness of the smoke. Something else that is quick to notice is you don't get thirsty with this blend at all. I really like many of the English blends but they do tend to give me some dry mouth. This blend is the opposite. My mouth remains very moist and the aftertaste is very good. (Not ashy at all but I am left with an after-taste of sweet Virginias). I do think a little drying time could be applied before packing your pipe but I personally don't. I found that just breaking up the flakes works great and will remain lit with just a few re-lights all the way through to the end. (I tried just packing without breaking up the flakes and it was a little harder to get it lit and keep burning). As others have said, the flavors do seem to build as you smoke this. One other note was this blend seems to be on the high-end of a medium nic-hit but on the low end of strong (somewhere close to the middle). I noticed the nicotine about three-quarters of the way through but it wasn't enough to make me stop smoking it. When I ordered this, I also ordered a few other new blends to try, however, I haven't popped the tops on any of them yet because I have been enjoying this one so much. This blend is awesome and I plan on getting more on my next order. If I can keep it long enough, I am sure this will age well also. Read Less
I thought I would try this tonight, had a quiet night planned with a book. Packed my pipe and lit up, then completely forgot about my book. This is a really nice tobacco. The rum isn't boozy and has a nice toasted molasses taste which isn't overly sw... Read Moreeet. The tobacco shines through and overall it's a really pleasant smoke. I had to pop online to add it to my favorites as this will be a regular buy for me. To really appreciate this, find some quiet time, sit back and sip it. You won't regret it. Read Less
À really nice offering from C&D and a shame it isn't offered in bulk. Opening the tin your greeted with notes of grass and boozey raisins. Initial lighting is fairly effortless for a flake.

Overall if you like Navy blends and or flake, don't hesitate to buy a tin or two. Read Less
Beautiful! Just beautiful! Tin aroma is very similar to Life Savers Butter Rum candies. Room note will get you many compliments. Despite the casing you still get plenty of tobacco flavor from that good old virginia. Magnificent!
