High grade Virginias are pressed into Cornell & Diehl's proprietary flake/chip cut and the result is a smoke brimming with both a natural sweetness as well as a fragrance that is slightly reminiscent of orange muffins fresh from the oven. This tasty leaf packs a fine bowl straight from the bag, but also boasts excellent aging potential.

As i'm typing this review, i'm clenching the fifth bowl of this broken flake virginia.
Consecutively, from bowl after bowl my impression to this tobacco goes from good to better.
I have had no tongue bite or maybe just a light bite and i would easil... Read Morey forget it by sipping my cup of hot coffee with milk, i've once smoked this while drinking a can of chilled beer and .... just fine, the slightly bite will be "gone with the drinks".
It has a very natural tobacco aroma and just like anyone would describe a natural virginia: bready, fresh baked muffin, hay, grass, honey, citrus etc. this tobacco has all of those characteristics and very easy to recognize right out from the bag, dive your nose into the bag and you'll notice all those aromas, you need to be a perfumer to identify them.
The taste is light sweet, very light, you need to smoke slow to taste it. A fast smoker will throw this bag away right after the very first bowl, and also a heavy cigarette smoker would do the same because its strength is on the mild side.
For those who are able to clench your pipe while working daily and those who are able to spend an hour and a half for a group 3 bowl, this tobacco is for you.
For the "home blender" this is perfection.
If you're not one of those, don't bother buy this. Read Less
이건 분명 순수버지니아이다. 하지만 풀버지니아 플레이크를 먹어본사람은 분명 이럴것이다. 이건뭐지?! 왜 이리 싱겁지? 풀버지니아플레이크같이 고소하고 달콤한맛은 거의없다고 볼수있다. 하지만 이또한 이연초를 좋아하는사람은 있을것이다. 왜냐면 달콤하고 고소한맛을 싫어하거나 접해보지않은 사람은 분명 좋아할꺼라 본다. 마치 된장국에다 물을 많이 넣은듯한 밍숭한맛이다.

This broken flake comes as other well-known selections from C&D, with perfect moisture and easy and cool burning. As you progressed through the bowl, it soon picks up strength, easily reaching the "medium" level. It burns with nice whit... Read Moree ash, and consistently so throughout the bowl. As such, the overall behavior of this Virginia (broken) Flake is quite good. However, it lacks taste and sweetness. You know you are smoking something there with some good strength and quality (like a glass os sparkling water), but it does not rise to the palate with noticeable features, save of a regular bready, hay, slightly citrus, and even "farmy" kind of tobacco with a tiny hint of sweetness. It does get a little bit better towards the end, but in general. It does not satisfy the overall taste experience for me. Likely, it is a good tobacco for blending, especially with burleys. It leaves a fairly good taste in the mouth after the smoke. This is not for me though, but maybe I will try blending something with it. Read Less
C&D's Virginia Flake is relatively new to me (at the time of this review). It's not new, but with C&D offering so many Virginia-based tobaccos that seem to get more attention and praise, I simply overlooked THE Virginia Flake. I had just fini... Read Moreshed a tin of Carolina Red Flake, and as good as it is, it wasn't the right VA for what I was craving. I enjoy every VA I try to some degree, but I find myself searching for a taste that I know is possible but unfortunately is not always present, namely, a yeasty baked sour dough flavor. On a whim I took advantage of smokingpipes.com's CHAT feature and asked Kaye Farinelli a simple question: “What's the breadiest VA you have for me to try?” I half expected her to say something I was already familiar with, but She quickly asked around for opinions, and came back with “C&D Virginia Flake”. It was an excellent recommendation and exactly what I was looking for. I've been unable to put this down since I got it. It's a broken flake that benefits from further rubbing out and I let it dry out a little. It's not moist, in fact it's fine to smoke right away, but drier tobacco lights easier, burns more evenly, and improves flavor IMO, especially with slowly sipped Virginias. Dare I say I enjoyed it more than CRF? That's about all I can say given my brief introduction. I've only had an ounce so far, but I'll be sure to buy more. As good as it is, this is definitely one to jar up and age a few years. This flavor bomb should only improve with time. If you enjoy the taste of baked bread from Virginia tobaccos and have not tried C&D's Virginia Flake, you are missing out on one of the best and surprisingly underrated VA around. Enjoy. Read Less

I don't have anything bad to say about this tobacco. Similar to Lane's 125th. I like the chip/flake aspect of this. Packs easily and came perfectly dry to smoke.
