Davidoff - Flake Medallions 50g
A good one
For me, this is a good tobacco. I feel It herbal and sweet. Offers simplicity and dignity. Good balance of the three varietys V/P/BC. Summer or winter, Sunny day or rainy, i enjoy It.
Erinmore - Erinmore Flake 50g
I expected more, since unfortunately the fantastic aroma before smoking does not transfer anything or almost nothing to the taste, I find it very difficult to find the fruity notes, although there are, and although I think that the tobacco is of good quality and fresh, the smoke becomes bitter at the end.
Samuel Gawith - Best Brown Flake 50g
Needs time to dry, as always with S.G. Also, as always with S.G (in my opinión), needs to understand the way to smoke: slowly, without purpose. It is grassy and earthy, with a lot of flavour. In the acid side i think, not very sweet. medium strength, top quality Virginia. If you smoke It fast and hard, It will become an ugly tobacco. Sometimes a fine grassy flavour come around, and its when i really enjoy It, but sometimes a bitter sensation Also comes, and i dont like It, but anyway, on a corn-cob pipe with a Frozen tea and time to smoke It with calm, its very pleasant.
Capstan - Flake Yellow 1.75oz
For me its good, but not too much. It has a likely bakery smell, and yes, its smooth, but a litlle bit smoky. Has good flavour, sweet, but the smoky sensation is always there...dont say nothing to me, i prefer others, even this is good.
Mac Baren - Virginia Flake 1.75oz
Nothing extraordinary, but a sometimes enjoyable virginia
I could define myself like a "natural smoker", i only like to smoke non-artificial tobbacos. When i bought this flake in the store, i was looking for a cool natural Virginia, and the owner mistakenly give me this mcbaren. It was not What i wanted, and i note that when i openned the box and a nice sweet aroma came out, and when smoked, obviously i note was an artificial topping. But with all of these, when i smoke this blend i can not say that i dont enjoy It. The topping is elegant and do not dominate, just give a touch of sweeteness and mellow flavours to the good and cool virginias. So i think this is a good flake for people Who want an extra sweet and descomplicate aromátic Virginia smoke, but for people like me, i think out there are better quality Virginia tobbacos, so these flake Will be for me just a sometimes go, and i think when i finish these, Maybe i wont buy It again, but just because i like other type of smoke. In the toppings family i cant say you Will not enjoy these.
