My absolute favorite tobacco not a huge fan of Virginia but this folks is the beesnees, right off the back natural sweet, fruity,nutty,creamy,and super rich.

And was not disapointed.A creole woman with long,dark wavy hair was ,lounging in that club chair.Her name was Sixpence.I took a couple of her flakes,rubbed them out fully,and filled my new Beo 3/4 bent pipe,and lit up.The humidity level is good righ... Read Moret out of the tin.I could taste the perique and Virginias trading back and forth as I puffed gently.Had I not rubbed out the flakes,and simply folded them,The flavors would have presented themselves differently still.I will smoke this down to the ashes,then light them up as well in order to break in this pipe.Highly recommended by myself,I look forward to my next meeting with Sixpence.Wll done,Mr. Pease.

I'm giving it 2 stars rt now. When I first open a tin it stings my palate pretty bad. So I let it sit for a month. Where'd the flavor go? Dosent really bite me as bad now but I just don't get it. For me right now there are better VaPers such as navy ... Read Morerolls, Scottish Cake solani Virginia with Perique St. James flake . I have a few flakes left I'll let sit for 6 months or so and I'll revisit but for now I can't understand why it beat out St. James flake for Smoking pipes spring showdown. Read Less
I'm smoking some that has been sitting in the tin at least a few years,Without any extra humidification.The original moistness is gone now,but it is not compleatly dried out,which improves the taste.This is not a cigar,nor a nicotine forward blend.In... Read Morestead,all the elements come togeather,and from time to time a little cigar flavor/smell is detected in the background.This might be a good transition blend if you want to work up to stronger va tobacco,but this all just my opinion.It is worth the time it takes to order it.

First off,I was a bit scary of this,thinking its being too strong and punchy to my likings,but it turned to be opposite,
Very nice,mellow and bold mixture, there is something similair tastewise with their Golden Sliced,perhaps same sort of virginas ...

I love these containers and am glad they have come to smokingpipes.com! The large size is good for ~4 oz of bulk tobacco. The seal is excellent and the cradle in the lid for the humidity packet is very handy.
Wow¡¡¡ a nice surprise. In cold you can feel honey´s aroma, but soft not excessive... This flake, at burning gif you very good balance of sweetness and wath to talk about oriental's force. Definitely a very good cellar of C&D... of the best...
The tin note is superb. Dark chocolate and cherrys right on the nose!

So much praise, so little rewardSeptember 27, 2016
Not really straight virginia as it has some aromatic quality, maple, molasses and vanilla probably which are good but nothing truly remarkable.
Even though the grassy and sour-sweet qualities from the virginias develop through the smoke there is al... Read Moreways a distant ghost from some vanilla and maple in the distance.
All in all the smoke is very mellow and lacks the strength from a pure virginia which is kind of dissapointing, after so much praise i expected something really interesting and perhaps poetic, it was not.
This is rather boring and uninteresting tobacco, but it is understandable why it has so much hype, precisely because it is a simpleton, uncompromising and rather bland tobacco that demands nothing from the smoker, so you may lay down not intending to find the intricacies of flavour or feeling the strength of a blend that has nothing of that.
I would recommend as smoke in between stronger and fragrant smokes. Standard. Read Less
Dark, dense flakes. Takes real effort to rub out. For those uninitiated with McClelland Virginias, the catsup aroma is of the homemade variety, not the more popular pungent Heinz or Hunts variety. .

When someone says "Virginia Flake", this is the flavor. Perfectly mature, cool, slow, savory and fulfilling. Wow. Read Less
