Ok, first off, I am a fanatic for anything that has coconut in it. I picked this up for that one reason alone. The coconut is more a hint rather than an overwhelming flavour. It's a very balanced and mild tobacco and makes for a good all day smoke. D... Read Moreefinitely worth a try. Read Less
I am usually an English blend fan, but occasionally I look for something a little sweeter without being overly cased.I tried this on a whim and happy I did. The tobacco has a good flavour that's not overly sweet, but a nice cavendish style tobacco. I... Read More ended up finishing the tin rather quickly. I will be getting more in as this is a really pleasant tobacco. Read Less
This tobacco may ought to be used in blending by most folks. If your blend just doesn't have enough oomph, add some of this. It has little bite to me(who's been smoking pipe over 40 years).It's smokey, has some hay or straw flavor, and something I ju... Read Morest can't put a handle on, may be the toasting effect of the firing.I find it quite nice in it's own way. I believe it to be one of those tobaccos one either likes or hates. It reminds me of an old tobacco I once smoked, just can't figure out which. As for aroma, I've had no comments from others yet, smells nice in the bag. Read Less
This was surprisingly sweet and strong, a decent nic hit! I'm sure there's a casing on it that adds to the sweetness but whatever it is, it works. The moisture from the tin was pretty much perfect and it light and burn very well. The only issue I had... Read More was rubbing it out... it tended to break up so small that it would plug the shank... other than that an excellent blend! Read Less
This is surely one of, if not my new favorite. I have been enjoying Bayou Morning, but always thought it would be interesting to know what it was like with some black cavendish, so I tried this. It is quite similar to Bayou Morning, but has a bit mor... Read Moree richness and complexity; maybe even a bit more strength. The smoke is thick, spicy, but still sweet with a great after taste. Also, there's no shame in relighting, it's part of pipe smoking, but it is a pain... This blend often burns all the way to the bottom for me with no relights - very nice!
If you love VaPer's, as I do, you definitely need to give this a try. Read Less
Being a huge fan of SG in general and having 1792 in my regular rotation when I heard rumours that Lakeland Dark is the same blend (less the casing) as 1792 I just had to order a few tins. I found it medium in nic strength with a strong flavor. The t... Read Moreaste was very earthy/peaty and full, hard to explain but I thought I picked up hints of 1792. Definitely not your typical burley flake. Like all SG tobacco it needed substantial drying time but once dried and rubbed out it packed and burnt like a charm. If you don't like Lakeland blends I doubt you'll like this. If you do... you will!!! This won't displace 1972 from the rotation nor will it be added but it was worth a try and I'm sure I'll end up getting a craving for it sometime in the future. Read Less
I smoked two tins of this and enjoyed every puff. A medium flavor and strength, it had a good burley taste with some good Virginia sweetness. I only got hints of the perique and nothing from the Kentucky. I didn't really notice the nic at all but I'm... Read More an absolute nic fiend with a high tolerance so if you don't like nic it may hit you. Tin moisture was pretty much perfect, it packed and lit like dream. I won't be putting in the rotation but I'm sure I'll order more just to change things up. Read Less
As far as Virginia flakes go Irish is the absolute best. It has a Cope-esque topping in the tin note... which while pleasant really doesn't matter... who smokes a crappy burning blend so they can smell the tin? The flake rubs out easily, but on openi... Read Moreng I find is just a little damp and needs an hour or so to dry. However, it may be perfect for you... not too wet at all. It packs well, lights easily and burn to the bottom. There is ample full and thick smoke that bring a full and rich flavor unlike any other tobacco I've tried with a solid but not overwhelming nic hit. If I had to choose one Virginia flake... this is it. If I had to choose one Flake... this is it. Read Less
As soon as I received my tin and opened it and transferred the tobacco to a Mason jar. After I let it sit for a month I tried it out. Opening the jar I smell what seems to be a light strawberry flavoring. The strawberry, along with the Virginia tobac... Read Moreco is intoxicatingly good.
Smoking this flake tobacco is on a level of wonderful that will float you up on cloud nine! Tangy,creamy,and semi sweetly sour. Lights well and is really, really terrific. I will definitely purchase more of this. Read Less
SG nailed it. It's different than any other Vaper I've smoked but definitely you know you're smoking a Vaper. Sweet with that Perique kick which is so satisfying. Like all SG blends its rather wet from the tin but let it dry and it will be a favourit... Read Moree if you like vapers. The loose coins burn well as is. They're small enough thst you can just drop them in and with a little of the loose shag on top lights no problem and burns perfectly. It's not Escudo but in a very very good way! Read Less
I'm not a latakia fan so I thought based on the rum flavoring I may enjoy this. After going through the 1st of 2 tins I ordered I'm suprised to say that while I found the latakia tolerable, it was the only flavor I got from this. It was barely there ... Read Moreand that was the only flavor. I didn't get any rum even on the retrohale. Its not bad but it was so one dimensional and light it's not what I enjoy smoking. It was, like all SG tobacco, moist from the tin and required drying. The flakes rubbed out great and packed well. Just not for me. I'll try the 2nd tin just incase I got a bad tin and update this if required... Read Less
I was gifted this tin for Christmas by my college age daughter who said she "simply bought it because it had a pointer on it". You see, we had a German Shorthaired Pointer for 13 years and that dog was an iconic family member. Not only do I apprec... Read Moreiate my daughter going out of her way to buy me a tin of tobacco, but behold, Granger is 12oz of heavenly tasting history. I had no idea of the rich heritage of this blend and it's migration to STG from American Tobacco. It burns well, tastes wonderful and is flat over the top for me because I think of my daugher each time I smoke it. I feel like i'm smoking history and sending smoke signals of good cheer to my daughter, each time I light it up. Read Less
