One of G&H's oldest blends is a true classic. It is a very complex and well balanced blend, never hot or harsh. There is no bite in this blend at all with very little aftertaste. A very nice sweet taste in this blend sits well with me. Nic-Hit is a f... Read Moreull medium. I would say It's a medium to full smoke with more flavor than Kendal flake, Rum flake or Louisiana flake. Fairly slow burning and stays lit well. If you like Lakelands you will love this one for sure! And it does have a tin note of old lady perfume. Update 7/10/19 Kaz W. is right on point with eggnog as a very good beverage pairing. It is my favorite blend! I have over 7Lb. in my cellar now, it's a true old world classic. Read Less
I'm a fan of the Lakeland essence, and a fan of clove. The two complement each other quite well. The clove is subtle here, and I find it mostly in the aftertaste, almost as if I had recently sucked on a dried clove.
On the whole this is a spicy, c... Read Moreomplex, and very satisfying tobacco. Read Less
This is a top notch, full flavored tobacco indicative of what G&H regularly produces. The cut plug is more like a broken flake to me and it rubs out easily enough. This has a nice Anise topping and it has the typical

This tobacco is strong too, so I recommend smoking it with some food in your belly. This makes for a perfect after dinner smoke for me, so I enjoy smoking it as a regular part of my rotation.

I smoked "Three Nuns" for 25 years, but it became difficult to find and eventually disappeared. I turned to St. Bruno and loved it — until it too disappeared.

Let this age out until it nearly dries out. It’s a fine line but WOW, is this ever good. You still get a little of the Lakeland flavor, and the tobacco is soft, mellow and will really surprise you with how much flavor you’ll really get.
I tried it to see if I could get behind Lakelands, but it smelled like an air freshener and the tin note made me sneeze. Aftershave, perfume, take your pick and tasted like ash. I was surprised for how much it smelled it had no flavour at all.
This is a delicious mixture. Comes wet and in need of some extra rubbing out to pack well, in my opinion... but it rewards you with a dark, sweet, mild smoke with enough strength and flavor to take you somewhere special. The Lakeland essence on thi... Read Mores one represents one of the best, the warm spicey clove and subtle floral background tastes highlight and contrast the dark smokey virginias and bring out a spiced sweetness that is just magical.
My favorite, Grasmere Flake is more Floral, less spice, sweeter and lighter... but this blend is something that could be smoked all day with no regrets, unlike it's stronger and smokier relatives. The cut plug is superior to the full plug in every way. The flavors are stronger here, and the delivery is so much easier.
If you want to taste a REAL traditional English Lakeland, but haven't before... try this one BEFORE you go for Ennerdale Flake. Read Less

The cut and color is reminiscent of many other G&H offerings, especially Bob's Chocolate. I loved the moisture content right away. Rubs apart easily and fills your chamber with little effort.

I didn't get any clove at all, I love clove in my ham, and I ordered a trial ounce thinking it would be something unique.
