Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Brown Flake Aromatic
Don't be scared of Lakeland!
I was skeptical of lakeland blends for the longest time due to their reputation, boy was I wrong! This is fantastic stuff! Not the goopy type of aro like a lot of other brands. Not a sopping mess that won't dry out. In fact it came almost at the perfect smoking moisture, just a small amount of drying needed. Lights well and stays lit. The topping doesn't overwhelm the tobacco. I have tried this and Ennerdale and find this more to my liking as it's topping is isn't as strong as Ennerdale. Good stuff!

My Go To!
Mild but full flavored. The Latakia in this blend is something else. While th Lat is forward it is well supported by the Virginias with the Turkish dancing in and out in the background. The botton 3rd of the bowl is my favorite with a nice toasty dark crusted bread flavor.

The Search is Finally Over!
I am NOT an aro fan and have been hunting for one I could even smoke. This one not only can I smoke it but I absolutely LOVE it! Mellow, smooth, not overly sweet and doesnt taste like perfume! The room note is exquisite as well! Time to buy a big bag in bulk!
Rattray's - Marlin Flake 100g
THE BEST Va-Per out there! Sweet plum, fig scents from the tin. Beautiful dark pressed flakes easily rubs out. Smooth and full of flavor! Grab it if its available!

I’ve smoked lots of English blends (not all) and this is a very consistent, value priced winner! Not for the Lat lovers but there’s plenty here. Lots of smokiness from the tin note. Batch I received was at the perfect humidity. Lots of bread, nuts and the perfect sweetness. A lot of reviewers find this too mellow or one dimensional, but I’ve compared this side by side to bfcg, and Father Dempsey, this made them look like OTC garbage. If your looking for a smoke that delivers a wonderful experience this is it. Can’t describe nicotine but the strength And taste I would say are medium. Get some, if you don’t like it send it to me.
