Dunhill: Dark Flake 50g

Product Number: 003-021-0021

First produced back in 1970, Dunhill's Dark Flake is a heralded vintage blend of choice Virginias and a little Perique for spice. Bolder in strength and flavor than Dunhill Flake, though still as easy to prepare.

This is a great Virginian Blend. Notes of brown sugar and hay. Still not overly sweet. I highly recommend it, but more so with a year or so of aging.
Not what i expected.

First thing i know we all are disgusted by the new roumd tin, it ruins the nice presentation it had in the square tin. But points for using a square paper wrapper to keep the flakes corralled. Nice naturall tobacco flavor, not a sweet virginia but st... Read More

Smoked now three times. Much better with some time to age, although nicer than DUNHILL FLAKE right out of tin. Darker bolder Virginia spectacular with perique perfectly bringing up the light spice. ENJOY! I AM AND WILL BE MY #1 VIRGINIA, WHILE I CAN... Read More

This stuff is full flavor! Not too sweet and has a dark molasses taste. Burns well and ages even better.

I was very fortunate to smoke through a sample of the original version a couple years back. I will not attempt to compare the differences between the two. My initial impression was lackluster. However, after letting the tin sit for several days after... Read More
Much better with a little age.

When I first tried this I was not impressed. But with a little jar time it has become stellar. Really deep with lite spice one of Dunhill's better offerings. Great mouthfeel and aftertaste. No bite at all.

I haven't had a chance to smoke the original, and probably wasn't even around when it was being produced. So this review will be an independent review of this current iteration. The main role here is played by dark virginias, and I dare say the sole ... Read More

Raisin smell out of the tin. Burned hotter then I expected so I needed to keep a slow steady pace. Didn't notice any bite but had a nice hint of spice
Warm, Smooth, and Easy.

I'm only halfway through my first tin, but I was so taken by this flake that I wanted to get a few early words in. It requires no drying time, loads easily, and lights quickly. There is no bite, it burns at a steady rate, and quickly becomes spicy-sw... Read More

I'm a bit surprised by some of the low reviews. Possibly expecting more Perique? This isn't, at least in my classifications and true VA/Per blend. This is a VA blend, with a touch of Perique. By no means is this a VA/Per. The Perique is at time almo... Read More

In a previous negative review, I noted a "strong and distasteful sourness that almost made it unsmokable." I let the flake sit for almost two months and gave it another try. The problem for me wasn't one of aging for a couple of months is more like "... Read More

Not one of my favorite VaPer, but nice nonetheless.

Dunhill is really stepping up their game, responding to the growing market interest in pipes. This rings in at about a medium-plus VA flake, lots of sweet hay and molasses, touch of black pepper. Nothing too fruity, making it distinct from Marlin Fl... Read More

This lovely flake from Dunhill is indeed full bodied and rewarding. It burns slow, which is a good thing. The flavor profile is deep and rich with a touch of pepper. It is well worth the time and investment.
