Germain's is one of the brands that can be difficult to acquire. Luckily, the pipe smoking community are a great bunch who help one another when they can. The staff at SmokingPipes.com have always been so helpful! I especially like the One-Time Alert... Read More feature available on out-of-stock items, this can be essential to obtaining certain blends, so if you're not using it, you're missing out. And, if you love Latakia flakes, you don't want to miss Germain's Special Latakia Flake. This has a very similar structure and taste to Cornell & Diehl's popular Star of the East Flake IMO. Perhaps Germain's is a touch sweeter, but both are rare enough that I'd settle for either when and where I can get it. The Special flakes are chunky and not overly moist, which I find uncommon for Germain's tobacco. In other words, this was perfect for smoking straight away. And what a delicious smoke it is. The Latakia is strong yet not overpowering and is the predominate flavor sure to please its fans. The flakes crumble almost like a cake and when gravity packed, can provide a long, slow smoke. I get a good hour-long smoke out of a medium sized bowl, easily. I find it doesn't require as many re-lights in a wider, shallower bowl; so an Apple or Prince works great (it seemed to smoke best in my Peterson 408). As with many tobaccos of limited runs, I choose to cellar in jars and partake sparingly hoping to make it last until I can find them again. Germain's Special Latakia Flake is too good to go untried. If you can find it, make sure to get a tin. If you can find two tins, share one with a friend. Enjoy. Read Less
