FireDance is Samuel Gawith's Best Brown 6" Flake subtly flavored with a combination of Blackberry, Brandy, and Vanilla. The smoke is a mellow, cool experience with the Blackberry the predominant flavor, the Brandy in the background and rounded off with the Vanilla. A smooth and fruity smoke with the strength of Best Brown and a very pleasing room aroma.
I believe I first purchased a tin of SG Firedanace Flake bc of the tin description - blackberry, brandy and vanilla. Sounded good. Later I discovered it was made with SG Best Brown Flake. You mean an aromatic made with a quality brown flake and no... Read Moret just shredded, low grade tobacco??? Absolutely. I smoke this in my 2009 Boswell wedge/bridge pipe. Love it with a Zippo. Just sip on it for the flavoring to come through. Smoke it hard and the flavor is hidden in the heat. I highly reccommend this tobacco for those who like aromatics but do not get anything from the tobacco that they are typically made with. The next tobacco order will include 250g of Firedance for 30$ from smokingppes.com!! Read Less
Unlike most aromatics, this tobacco is not made up of cavendish with some virg/burleys cased in syrup. Quality Best Brown Flake flavored with Blackberry, Brandy and Vanilla make for a great flake smoke. I have a dedicated Boswell wedge pipe for thi... Read Mores tobacco.

I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into with this. Cracked the tin, the note was amazing. My friend said his mouth started watering. The smoke is no less significant. They balanced all the components perfectly and this could become an all day sm... Read Moreoker quite easily. Read Less

I have smoked this product consistently for over 10 years. A conservative estimate in pounds would be 20+. A couple years back this product was not being manufactured or held up in export red tape, I forget exactly which. My last order, 5/250g boxes,... Read More the tobacco was so moist it was mildewed upon arrival. Rather than contact my pals at Smoking Pipes, I culled the mildewed tobacco and smoked on. I have enjoyed this bran for so long, I'm going to give it one more try and order enough 250g to free load on UPS. Read Less
This is an ambivalent kind of smoke. At times it is rather pleasant, thats when it develops its quality character, a mild strength with low nic, smooth body and mild taste which is vaguely fermented with mild notes of vanilla and a distant background... Read More of lakeland, at times the apparition of roasted honey in a bbq and liquor too. Good after taste and not overcased respecting the English aromatic tradition.
But then when you start considering to buy another tin it does transform into something rather monotonous and even insipid, so it kind of seem to hide its flavour palette. In the end it is hard to make it a favourite, at least for me.
It is best consumed after getting it dry leaving just a mild oily humidity to reach its top. Read Less
I have smoked two tins of this blend from the years 2010 to 2013. Those two tins were absolutely wonderful. However, my thrid tin purchased in 2015 was not the same. The tin aroma was there, but the taste had totally changed and was not present. ... Read MoreThe style of flake is completely different also. The first two tins were each one massive strip/flake of soft, leathery tobacco. The third tin consisted of nice looking perfectly rectangular flakes. They were too thick. Whatever Sam Gawith did to this blend ruined it. I would not recommend this blend now. Oh please go back to the way it was made because it was a delicious, quality aromatic unlike typical aromatics. I used to be able to sit back, read a book and sip this blend in my dedicated Boswell bridge pipe...the good ole days. Just wanted to update my 5 star review as that rating has changed. :( Read Less
This is the first flake tobacco I've tried. I highly recommend it, especially if you're into aromatics. It has a very pleasant room note, and it smokes well. The 1st time I tired it, I had to light it only once and it stayed lit all the way through t... Read Morehe bowl.

I'll have to agree with Jeffrey's review; do not smoke this one fast. It will bite (of course) and you will get nothing, nothing but topping. And I don't like topping because it makes me feel that I am smoking plastic. And I don't like plastic. A... Read More very, very pleasing room note. Moist from the onset but requires only brief drying. I actually enjoy the texture of the flake, it just seems to be well put together. Not a regular in the rotation (because I don't buy aromatics much at all anymore) but a potentially nice change, if it is treated well. Read Less
