Wessex - Red Virginia Flake 50g
Favorite Virginia
Perfect Virginia, everything I want, except availability issues so buy several tins at a time. From the tin is raisins and fresher baked bread. Good thick smoke, sweet sweet. I don’t know if aging this could possibly make it better, I’ve never had a better Virginia. Brown sugar sprinkled over honey on a piece of toasted honey wheat bread…yup, that’s what I taste. Not a subtle smoke, it’s for the sweet tooth for me

Newminster - No.400 Superior Navy Flake
Head to head, Stokkebye VS Newminster
Summery: smoked both (Stokkebye PS400 Luxury NF and Newminster No. 400 Superior NF) at the same time, same pipe (Savinelli 121), looking for a bulk navy flake to stock up on and age. Loved both, but IMHO, Stokkebye has the edge, barely. FML…I’ll probably buy a # of both. Newminster: Definitely straight Virginia, but this comparison is me looking for a navy flake, and my favorite Virginia is Wessex red (this might be a close second). This one is sweeter than Stokkebye and the room note is a bit sweeter too (smokers POV). Honey and brown sugar, white sugar are on top, a little hay in the background. Tin note is raisins-ish, that good Virginia smell, and darker than Stokkebye. Smoke was thicker, something I like. Stokkebye: More of a natural tobacco taste, if that makes since to ya. Just a little bit of everything I want in a navy flake..honey, brown sugar, hay, earth, perfect balance, AND I get the same on the retro, very good, very good. Much less on the sweet scale, so starting off I thought Newminster would win this one, as I smoked, the perfect subtleness of Stokkebye is what got me. I think a little perique balanced things out just right. Tin note is a bit of sweet almond and mostly hay. Can’t wait to try it aged for a year. LNF for me, but can’t go wrong with either one (or a # of both!). I highly suggest getting a couple oz of both and trying this out yourself.
