An impeccably structured blend, Savinelli's Brunello Flake features a foundation of sweet, tangy Virginias and cool burning Burleys. A dash of Macedonian leaf is added to round out the mixture and add a hint of the exotic. The different leafs are then aged as one, in order to marry and harmonize flavor, prior to being pressed into a tantalizing flake.
As soon as I received my tin, I opened it and transferred the tobacco to a Mason jar. After I let it sit for a month, I tried it out. Opening the jar I smell what seems to be a light strawberry flavoring. The strawberry, along with the Virginia tobac... Read Moreco is intoxicatingly good.
Smoking this flake tobacco is on a level of wonderful that will float you up on cloud nine! Tangy,creamy,and semi sweetly sour. Lights well and is really, really terrific. I will definitely purchase more of this. Read Less
I love this blend. Cool, uncompromising, and straightforward. It really brings out the best springtime, fresh, blooming flavours that bright Virginias tend to have, and the spice from the Orientals are a lovely condiment. I think I will need to top t...

A delicious, clean burning flake. Lightly cased but immensely flavorful with notes of hay and freshly baked bread. A deep chambered pipe, such as an Oom Paul, would be ideal. And like all such blends, a slow cadence is preferred. If you keep it const... Read Moreantly on the verge of going out, you and everyone around you will come to love Brunello. Read Less
If you are a Virginia lover and you haven't tried this, you have a treat in store. I just recently got a hold of a tin and it's an impressive smoke to say the least. Reminds me somewhat of 4th Generation 1855, but richer, darker, and with more flavor... Read More. I was very surprised by how good this was and for the price an excellent value. Read Less
Undoubtedly my favorite tobacco. You should dry it out for a week (or more) before smoking. It is mild but with a full flavo0 and body. I find the room note pleasing. I tried smoking it in two of my bent apples (Peterson and Savinelli) and had a mi... Read Moreserable time. I think the bowl-holes were too far down into the chamber and I was lucky to get one bowl smoke before I had to use a pipe tool to break through the hole (literally). This has not happened to any of my other (full-bent) pipes. This tobacco is well worth the price IF you have the right pipe. Read Less
Sometimes your sense of smell will give you a correct indication of what the tobacco might taste like before you even smoke it...and sometimes not. This one does. Upon opening the tin, I smell Virginia and a citrus aroma. When smoking it, I taste Vir... Read Moreginia and citrus. And the room note is also one of Virginia and citrus. To me, it's a very refreshing taste and aroma. Also, when I walk pass my jars of tobacco I sometimes grab one and open it just for the aroma of it. It's practically always the Brunello I open up. It just has that somewhat different stronger scent to it that I really enjoy. This one I like the smell before and after I light it up...with a great smoking flavor as well. For me, this one really hits my senses in a good way. Read Less
presentation and feel is very similar to OGS but there's a unique smell and taste to it, I'm assuming it's that Macedonian leaf? either way, it's great. If you're a fan of OGS, and most are, I'd highly recommend giving this blend a try!
This is a very good, full flavored flake tobacco with complexity, but not a lot of surprises. I like Virginia flakes of this type (Va/Per, Va/Bur) and this is a excellent example of the genre, but for me it didn't set itself apart. Still I'd easily...

A mellow Virginia-Burley blend, very balanced round full flavor without being overwhelming. The Virginias are not as sweet as some blends, but have a pleasant mild citrusy flavor. The Burley adds a low end, kind of chocolaty. The Macedonian seems ... Read Moreto add something I haven't tasted in a Va-Bur blend before and can't describe, but it's very nice. Maybe it's responsible for the occasional spiciness that drifts through the bowl. Fairly complex, rich and smooth, burns cool - no bite no matter how hard I pulled on it. Nicotine level is fairly mild. The first tin I received was 2 months out from the tin date. The price per ounce is just a $1 more than Orlik Golden Sliced, and I think this blend has a richer, smoother, fuller, complex, and balanced flavor which makes it a good value for a daily smoke - highly recommended.
Update: After going through two more tins this has become a staple in my rotation. I've noticed a flavor that drifts in and out that reminds me of oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips and raisins - go figure. Another Update - I just opened a tin of this that was aged 3 1/2 years. Wow! The oatmeal/chocolate/raisin flavors have deepened and the tin aroma is heavenly - a very rich tasting blend. Can't wait to try it when it hits the 5 year mark. Read Less
