I like the Rattray take on VA blends, bold and tasty. The perique in this one, makes it even better. Smoking it right now with some ice water and espresso on my deck. Very, very nice to be alive.
good stuff

I like my va/per more fruity then spicy, and Merlin Flake is it. I like this better then Escudo, Escudo has great tobacco in it.Marlin Flake is similar to Mcclelland 2015.

I love Marlin Flake, and I like this site... The only problem that I had with the 500 gram version was that it came in a bag. As I smoked my first bowl, it was just dehydrated tobacco. This stuff is so good that it should be tinned. This tobacco is p... Read More

Usually not a big fan of perique blends, excess spice in tobacco is not my thing. But this defied my expectations of what the blend was going to be. Needs a fair bit of drying time as it is very moist but what awaits you is a smokey, meaty blend that... Read More

I'm giving it 2 stars rt now. When I first open a tin it stings my palate pretty bad. So I let it sit for a month. Where'd the flavor go? Dosent really bite me as bad now but I just don't get it. For me right now there are better VaPers such as navy ... Read More

Really, this is that good. It might have become my top vap. The bacon cut is amazing. It took me a long time as it is hard to find here and I had to get a tin at my B&M but I recently reorder when SP got some in. Oh skip the chase and get the 100... Read More

I like the K & K reissue even better than the old house made Ratrays Marlin flake . The long cut flake has a great burn and is really tangy . Really good when you are in the mood for something different . A little milder than the original but th... Read More

I got the 3.5 oz can to try this flake out. Very bad packing from the factory -the flake was a baseball inside the can and very gummy. I left the lid off 24 hrs and -WOW now it is all dry and crumbles like sand. Burns good, so Hey seems like a good s... Read More

Delicious, sweet, tangy and plenty of flavor!. What else can i say?? one of the best VaPers on the market. Highly recommended!! If you are fan of Luxury Bullseye Flake, this one will conquer you from the first smoke. And gets better with some cella... Read More
Almost Perfect

Product: Rattray's Marlin Flake 50g
If this tobacco was a neater, more Peterson-style flake, it would get 5/5. A wonderful mix, comparable to Luxury Bullseye Flake (one of my favorites) but a bit milder. I intend to add several tins to my rotation, and several more to my cellar.

I'm a relatively new pipe smoker, so please bear that in mind. When I smoke my pipe I'm looking for a period of relaxation and contentment - a enjoyable experience. This pipe tobacco doesn't give me that. For newer smokers not aware of different pipe... Read More

Product: Rattray's Marlin Flake 50g
First off, I'm not at all a fan of Virginia. I don't much care for the sweat and sour smell of straight Virginia tobacco. I've tried dozens, but this is the first strong well rounded straight Virginia I have tried that I actually like, and have added... Read More

a little too tough for me without filter, but a real delight with an ACF ... gets really sweet by the end of the bowl ... delicious mixture!
