    • Thanks for putting this up. Coincidentally, I'm enjoying Quiet Nights as I began watching!

    • Adam O'Neill on December 28, 2017
    • @Joseph Very nice! How are you liking it?

    • Joseph on December 29, 2017
    • @Adam I'm liking it quite a bit! I have just a flake or two left. This time I'm going to spring for the 8oz tin. I'm really enjoying Pease's product having had Westminster, Quiet Nights, Abingdon & Cairo (listed in order of favorite). I've since picked up 8oz of Westminster & Abingdon. Any recommendations on what to try next from him? Thanks.

    • Shane, any recommendations for a flake tobacco that features oriental with no latakia and also has a good room note. If not flake, then anything.

    • Joseph on December 30, 2017
    • @Gregory - I'd be interested in Shane's answer as well. The one that jumped to my mind is Embarcadero by G.L. Pease. I've yet to try mine from a recent purchase but looking forward to it. Good day.

    • @Joseph From where you are now, and in no particular order, I'd say Key Largo, Chelsea Morning, and Haddo's Delight are absolutely must trys.

    • @Gregory Brougham @Joseph I won't speak for Shane, but for me Cornell & Diehl's Bijou is one of the best oriental forward Virginia flakes I've had, and truly showcase the strengths of the leaf.

    • Joseph on January 4, 2018
    • @Adam - thanks for the input - I'll give those a try!

    • sillyoldbear on January 5, 2018
    • @Joseph My pleasure!

    • Gregory Brougham on January 10, 2018
