Tasting Notes: Stonehenge Flake

In this week's Tasting Notes video, Shane takes on the re-release of G.L. Pease's mythic Lakeland style VaPer blend — Stonehenge Flake.

Concocted by Greg and John back in 2001. Bright flue-cured and sun-cured leaf, and a smidgen of Burley and Perique all get mixed together, steamed and hot-pressed into blocks, matured, and then sliced into delicate two inch long flakes. The result is a gently sweet, piquant, slightly peppery smoke with nutty chocolate undertones.

Don't forget to leave a review on the site, if you've already tried it, or post a comment below.

"From Gregory Pease:

In 2001, I had the honor and pleasure of collaborating with G.H. & Co.'s John Gawith on a very special tobacco, and after nearly a year of development, Stonehenge Flake, a modern VA/Perique blend steeped in English tradition, was born.

Fine Virginias are layered with Louisiana Perique, and just a touch of Burley for added body and a fuller flavor, then steamed, hot-pressed, and matured. The cakes are thinly sliced and tinned, ready for your smoking pleasure — today, and for many years to come."

    • I want to try this but I'm not a burley fan at all. I do not like the flavor of burley. Not sure if I missed it in the video, but does the burley stand out in this blend?

    • @Bryan Webber The Burley is more or less "felt" in Stonehenge and I certainly wouldn't let it turn you off from trying this lovely flake. Greg and John Gawith are both wizards and I suspect that the Burley was added for body and a bit of strength; it certainly doesn't stand out in the flavor. I may not even have guessed that there's Burley present here if not for the tin descriptions. Many blends have trace amounts of Burley to round things out. I hope this helps!

    • @S.ireland Awesome! Thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely give the blend a try.

    • This is my hands down favorite flake. The spice is perfect and I love the virginia and the hint of burley. An all around great vaper blend.

    • @James Haskin We're stoked you like it, James.

    • Actually, I still have some Stonehenge Flake 2001.. I really like the smell, but Burley will bit me. I am a super fan of GLP, but I am allergic to Burley.
