I've smoked Orlick's Golden flake, Samuel Gwaith's Golden Glow and Reiner's Long golden flake and Peter Heinrich's is my favorite. I'll say that Orlick's is a bit more complex but somehow the Peter Heinrich is more satisfying. The flake is pressed .....

Light yet rich this is a highly satisfying smoke and has won a place as one of three tobaccos to be awarded a dedicated pipe in my collection.

Tin note is of slight hay more of a fresh cut grass. I noticed an ever so small amount of spice. Moisture level a bit to fresh/ damp for me. Popped the tin three or four weeks ago and I just placed in a jar. First light is smooth I would call this mi... Read Moreld. Builds in intensity as you go, so if you like more flavor pack into a deeper pipe. After charing then true light I gather the grass note on the palate with a bit of bread.

A substitute for Orlik, I'm convinced after trying orlik goldenden sliced prior to this they are the same product. Although this has an ever so slightly darker appearance prior to rubbing out, the smell is the same and I really can hardly spot the di... Read Morefference if there is any. I had thought in the past that this was slightly lighter and maybe a touch sweeter, but I'd surely fail a blind comparison test. I rubbed out equal amounts of orlik and this and cannot easily discerne one from another. If they are different products, hats off to Peter Heinrichs for pulling it off. Read Less

I agree with other reviewers - this is very similar to Orlik Golden Sliced, which should not be surprising given the name, and last time I checked they were both made in the same factory. If you compare the per ounce price of the Heinrichs 200g vs t... Read Morehe 100g Orlik, they are almost identical.
After many bowls of both, I've concluded that the Orlik has slightly more emphasis on the orange-citrus flavor, where Heinrichs has more emphasis on the bread-like flavor and is slightly sweeter. But as others have noted, I don't know if I'd be able to identify them in a blind test. Like most Va blends, you'll enjoy this more if you go slow; if you chug it, you may miss the flavor and get tongue bite. At a regular pace I've never been bit by this blend. There are richer, more complex Virginia flakes out there, but I think Heinrichs is a solid straight Virginia flake worth trying. Read Less
The most characteristic Virginana I have ever smoked, unique charming sweat wood smell, not too strong, both tin note and room note is so fantastic, also, I especially like to smell it from the rim of my pipe when it is burning.
I didn't care for all the work that was needed to make it smokable.I like a lot of flake tobacco.My favorite is Germains Medium flake.
It's impossible to find, I only have two tins of it left.Someone recommended this as an alternative,not even close.... Read More it's hard to lite,room notes are terrible,taste is not very good.I gave it away to a friend,he seems to like it,so it just might not fit my taste. Read Less
