Solani Virginia Flake is aclassic flake with bright Virginias and Perique. This cool, slow burning blend has a natural sweetness and a wonderful room aroma. At SmokingPipes.com, we refer to it as "the Champagne of Virginias". Flake-Cut.
For some reason this tobacco didn't come up on my radar for some time. I love va/pers and when I saw several positive review on the "champagne" of virginias I had to give it a go--and I was NOT disappointed. 633 has deep, rich, wonderful flavors. Som... Read Moree hay, stewed fruits, and malty dark chocolate. There is also just a nice sweetness in there that rounds out the richness, like a semi-sweet chocolate (I do enjoy sweeter tobaccos). Interestingly enough, and maybe its just because "champagne" has been embedded in my mind, but it does almost have that very slight bitter after taste of a dry champagne. Maybe its just me? I give it about 30 minutes drying time out of the tin, and sip on it. Do so, and enjoy this rich and sumptuous flake. Read Less
I have added this to my rotation, it's very enjoyable. I can taste a bit of fruit, it is a little malty, and a nice medium strength. I replaced Dunhill flake with this in my lumberman. So far it seems to behave better and is a bit of a brighter smoke... Read More. Very happy with this tobacco! Read Less
Wonderful Sweet And fruity Virginia's with a Balanced amount of Perique. I can't say enuff about the Virginia's in this Blend they are probably the best I've ever smoked. I am a huge fan of Perique so this Blend definitely has enuff I believe for a g...

After thirty years and nearing five hundred different blends, I'd say this is the silkest and friendliest smoke of them all. To say that 633 is the champagne of Virginias is not enough. This is Dom Perignon.
I hope the recipe for this tobacco is never lost to the ages! A creamy, smooth smoke that is equally perfect for sipping on a warm afternoon and a chilly morning on the patio. Even more surprisingly, I have yet to meet a Virginia flake that would tak... Read Moree light so easily, and stay lit with no maintenance whatsoever. In fact, it is the only blend I have had to "put out" with my palm after the charring light. It just keeps going and going. With competition such as Full Virginia Flake or some of McClelland's offerings, this is nothing short of a blessing. Which goes for the blend on the whole. Champagne indeed! Read Less

Everything about this leaf screams top shelf. It's packaged beautifully. They come in beautifully colored sheets of tobacco. The moisture level is perfect straight from the tin. It burns perfectly. The taste... it's all a VaPer should be and more. I'... Read Moreve yet to find a more perfectly balanced blend. It's just sweet enough, not over the top and the taste improves just when you think it couldn't possibly. Great stuff! I burned my way through two tins in a couple days. I'm VERY curious as to how this stuff will age because as it stands fresh, I can't fathom it being even better. Yum! Read Less
I tried this for the first time yesterday evening after reading many positive reviews. I smoked it in a brand new corn cob pipe. I like to do that for a new tobacco; which I view as akin to rolling out a red carpet for a special guest.
I usually li... Read Moreke to smoke a tobacco a few times prior to sending in a review, but this one is an instant star! The flakes crumble nicely after a gentle rub. The tin aroma is fruity, but not overwhelming. The flavour is loaded with what I found to be the freshest and most pleasantly-tasting Virginias I've encountered. The perique is evident but blended in with perfect harmony. I speculate that this blend can please both the non-Virginia smoker and tenderfoot alike. Read Less
When I began smoking a pipe, I quickly realized that I had an affinity for VaPers. I've now tried many of them, and this is tied for the very best. The tin note is of a high-quality, fruity Virginia.

This could easily be an all-day smoke, and it's definitely going into both the rotation and the cellar. Read Less
Malt goodness in tin note and and taste, virgina is the star, with a light Perique taste. Wow, very good flake, also perfect moisture level to me. A must try. I see why it it is named Champagne of virgina. Top grade.
I'm a VA lover and this is one of the very best; even better than Dunhill flake after they adopted the round tins, Somehow I have a hard time tasting the Perique here or in Orlik, so I guess it is very mild or very well blended into the VAs. Will pro... Read Morebably replace the Dunhill in my rotation. Read Less
