McConnell: Scottish Flake 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-042-0013

One of McConnell's original blends dating back to 1848, Scottish Flake originally featured Orientals and Latakia, but today's version is a classic Virginia/Perique pipe tobacco, balanced by Dark-Fired Kentucky, pressed, and cut into flakes.

Tasteless. Not worth the price. Don’t stock up on this one. I’d turn back if I were you.

McConnell Scottish Flake and Scottish Cake are truly, uniquely magnificent. As an everyday pipe smoker, I am hard pressed to 1.) find a blend which displays mature flavours even while young 2.) find a blend which is neither too strong nor too light 3... Read More

I really enjoy this a lot. It has a lot of good red Va flavor that is nicely complimented by the burley and perique. Stays lit really well and smokes and tastes great in a wide assortment of pipes. Not overly complex but there is enough going on to k... Read More

I think this is the most interesting flake around, and is vastly under appreciated. It is both sweet and tangy, and at the same time slightly earthy. The Virginia and Perique elements provide a sweet,peppery edge with a main body of pure tobacco flav... Read More

Wow! This tobacco is absolutely sublime. Get it while it is in stock because that does not seem to happen very often.

One of my faves. Wife hates it, but it tastes so good. There's a sweetness and spicy edge to it.

Tin notes of figs, grass and a sour smell. The flakes are an orangish brown and only a little moist, drying not necessary. Rubs out easily. Slow burn and needs relit. The strength is med and nic is mild. No flavoring detected. The taste is med-full a... Read More

I loved this blend about 10 years ago when the description included "turkish" and "havana". Then I bought more of it and received a tin that "red virginia slices". This version is rather uninteresting with a sort sickly sweet smell. Kolhase&Kopp ... Read More

One of the best flakes available. Period.

Product: McConnell Scottish Flake 50g
One of my favorites by far but I like terrible tasting and rancid pipe tobacco's so unless you enjoy relighting every 2 minutes, driving all around you away with a foul odor of rotten meats and tasting battery acid in your pipe DON'T BOTHER! It's ter... Read More

Product: McConnell Scottish Flake 50g
This is a pretty good flake. Tin note is plums, earth and orange zest. Z fold and stuff, with a few threads above, a bit of tamping and I only need one or two relights. Perhaps it's just me but it might get a bit hot if you're not careful. Taste is e... Read More

I should tell you that this tobacco is awful, and TERRIBLE, so you won't buy it and leave it all for me! But I must praise this gem for what it is. Sweet, tangy, and creamy--wonderful. I don't know too many ways to describe this wonderful tobacco bec... Read More
A Satisfying Smoke

Product: McConnell Scottish Flake 50g
The tin note is rich, earthy, natural tobacco and not much else. Thinly-sliced perfect flakes are dark brown and behave well in the pipe. The Burley is somewhat dominant in the smoke, with a good Perique content. The strength builds in the second hal... Read More

Product: McConnell Scottish Flake 50g
I've tried a lot of Va-Per blends over the last couple years, and sometimes it felt like I was lost in the middle of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" - this one is too cased, this one is too bland, this one is too sweet, etc. In my opinion McConne... Read More
