One of My Favorite VaPers
July 16, 2017
Product: Rattray's Marlin Flake 50g
I like the Rattray take on VA blends, bold and tasty. The perique in this one, makes it even better. Smoking it right now with some ice water and espresso on my deck. Very, very nice to be alive.

Rich and deep. Keep my cellar stocked. It's top in its category for me.

Usually not a big fan of perique blends, excess spice in tobacco is not my thing. But this defied my expectations of what the blend was going to be. Needs a fair bit of drying time as it is very moist but what awaits you is a smokey, meaty blend that... Read More

I like the K & K reissue even better than the old house made Ratrays Marlin flake . The long cut flake has a great burn and is really tangy . Really good when you are in the mood for something different . A little milder than the original but th... Read More

Almost Perfect

Product: Rattray's Marlin Flake 50g
If this tobacco was a neater, more Peterson-style flake, it would get 5/5. A wonderful mix, comparable to Luxury Bullseye Flake (one of my favorites) but a bit milder. I intend to add several tins to my rotation, and several more to my cellar.
Not getting much out of this

I realize all our tastes are subjective, but this tobacco is my first real disappointment. Have tried it cubed, rubbed out, folded and stuffed, right from the tin, dried for an hour, dried overnight...nothing... I get nothing from this. Tin note is s... Read More

I was anxious to try this well-known and praised flake. It was a bit of a challenge to find it, but I finally did. The moisture level is very adequate, past the medium point. As such, it may be better to let it dry for a bit. It was easy to light up,... Read More

When I first tried Marlin Flake, I was a little disappointed. I had bought it, on a whim, mainly because I thought that the tin presentation was so cool. At that time, I had been smoking a lot of Dunhill Standard Mixture, Presbyterian Mixture, and Ba... Read More

This is possibly the best Virginia tobacco I've ever smoked, the conjunction of a bakers chocolate and dark fruit flavor is masterfully done by its blender
Mucho Perique

Product: Rattray's Marlin Flake 100g
Este es un tabaco que huele delicioso y sus encantos, para quienes gustan del perique, han de ser fuera de serie. Yo solo disfruté su delicioso aroma; en cuanto lo prendí en la cazoleta, empecé a sentir el típico picor propio de ese tabaco, y no lo a... Read More

Just finished my first tin of this flake. Really good, deep dark flavor with a real sweetness lurking in the background. Liked it enough to order several more tins. Folded and stuffed brings out more sweetness; rubbed out brings more of the dark V... Read More

Speaking of cup of tea. Rather than citrus flavor Perique often tend to convey, this gives off pleasant Rooibos tea. And then when you light it, the Black Cavendish will become like spoon full of sugar on your English tea. Very Pleasant, try it. Neve... Read More

There isn’t much I can say that hasn’t already been said about this wonderful flake. Its flavor is medium, and its strength is just shy of medium. Room note is pleasant, but only to pipe smokers. Certainly worthy of being an all-day smoke. It’s becom... Read More

This is a truly fantastic blend of dark Virginia, Black Cavendish and Perique. The Cavendish provides subtle sweetness and excellent body. The Perique is light and won't sting the nostrils with intensity. The Virginia is dark and provides an earthy s... Read More

I once tried an aged tin of MF back in 2010. It was superb. Now, the newer stuff seems to contain some sort of an additive that I didn't notice in the older tins. The older stuff wasn't sticky when being rubbed out. The newer MF in the yellow tin... Read More

I'm new to flakes, so I tried this two ways: fold and stuff, and rubbed out. Both ways smoked well, but I found stronger flavor by rubbing it out. The best way I can describe the flavor is savory. Sipping the tobacco produced the best flavor and no b... Read More

I like my va/per more fruity then spicy, and Merlin Flake is it. I like this better then Escudo, Escudo has great tobacco in it.Marlin Flake is similar to Mcclelland 2015.

I love Marlin Flake, and I like this site... The only problem that I had with the 500 gram version was that it came in a bag. As I smoked my first bowl, it was just dehydrated tobacco. This stuff is so good that it should be tinned. This tobacco is p... Read More

I'm giving it 2 stars rt now. When I first open a tin it stings my palate pretty bad. So I let it sit for a month. Where'd the flavor go? Dosent really bite me as bad now but I just don't get it. For me right now there are better VaPers such as navy ... Read More
