This is one of the best VaPers you'll try. It's slightly hard to come across, so cherish it when you get it. It's got kick, flavor and no bite. Nothing not to love here if your a fan of VaPer blends.

I have had a long love-affair with the Rattray's Virginias; moving back and fourth between this, Old Gowrie, Marlin Flake, Brown Clunee, and finally back to this. In my opinion these blends (with the possible exception of Marlin) are so similar in pr... Read More

One of my absolute favorites! Too strong for me to do all day, but what a treat! Not grassy, no bite, just complex enough that I can dwell on it if I want. Very nice!
Excellent VA/Per/Bur Mixture

I smoked a five year old tin of Hal back in 2010... sampling it around the same time I tried a six year old tin of Marlin Flake. Back in those days, one might get lucky enough to get a fairly aged tin straight from the online dealer. Back then, both ... Read More

Amazing smoke. Love this VaPer. It runs right up there with the big dogs in VaPer land. One of the best.

A great VAPer - I really do not even taste the burley. I also find this to be more of a medium strength than full. Smokes smooth and zero bite. Looking forward to seeing what extended age does to this blend
Excellent Blend

This is a favorite of a good friend who usually prefers cigars. When I'm smoking my pipe this is what we smoke together. It's very good. I love it too and always have some on hand. I don't see how you will not enjoy it unless you don't like Virginias... Read More
Instant favourite!

Product: Rattray's Hal O' The Wynd 100g
Really enjoyed Marlin Flake and this is similar but has a lot more complexity and less power. Best enjoyed at night with a whiskey or beer. I don't know what it is about this blend but it became a favourite of mine almost instantly and I can't imagin... Read More
Great. Just Great.

VA smoker? It behooves you to try this. This is one of those great and noble tobaccos which just tastes like tobacco with maybe some extra spice to keep it interesting. This could be your all-day, every-day thing. Does it stand out for its complexity... Read More

Product: Rattray's Hal O' The Wynd 100g
This is a lovely bright and spicy mixture that offers nuanced back-end notes of sweetness. The Perique is not overstated and marries nicely with the bright Virginia. The broken flake cut provides for easy packing and combustion. It holds moisture wel... Read More

The cut is beautiful, it's easy to rub down, it retains it's moisture nicely, it burns well... But it's also not very exciting. It just falls flat for me. It's not awful, but the flavour just isn't there!
One of the best

A great blend in it's genre. Right cut, right strength, right flavour. Just a lovely smoke all the way around. I'd imagine it would age very well. When first opened it has a very distinct fermented aroma of perique. I found letting it rest a couple ... Read More

Everything from this German blender tastes like honey. I prefer less of the casing.
