A Wonderful example of an old fashioned twist Flake of compressed aged Old Belt Virginia's and some Brights added in, for a high note.
Noted: A beguiling Mild butterscotch aroma was detected, and a mellow honey like sweetness was sensed while smoking... Read More. Burns clean. Smoke slowly and tamp often. Great stuff. The 24 ounce box is the way to go. Should cellar well for a couple of years under the right conditions. Highly recommended. Read Less

This is still my favorite tobacco of all I've ever tried in my life. Heaven in a flake, if such be possible! Depending on the size of my pipe and how long I want to smoke, I roll up 1 or 2 of these flakes (rarely 3, unless I intend on sprouting roots... Read More where I sit), stuff them in, and settle back for the best smoke ever. Much better than tobaccos costing several times as much, guaranteed. Get plenty of this, for now and for the cellar -- you won't be sorry! Read Less
Best Virginia Flake!

I liked this flake when first tried it a few years ago. I aged a 2 lb. jar - now 3 years and this is really something worth waiting for. Time to order a few more lbs. for the cellar.

There is nothing bad about this blend - no bite, all natural flavour, sweet, and not overly strong. A daily smoke and well worth aging for a few months at least, it really matures.

Bought a few ounces of this along with the bullseye and navy flake. At first I liked this the least but now its really growing on me and its my favorite. Its a great daily smoke!

I was interested in trying flake tobacco so I bought 4oz of this stuff based on its reviews by others. I love my aromatics, so this was a leap out of the proverbial box for me. Granted I've only been smoking a pipe for the past 2 years on and off, an... Read Mored am by no means a connosieur, I can tell when a tobacco/blend is good. This stuff is good. Smooth, easy to pack, sweet and not harsh with very little bite. It does take a few lights to get it going, but when it gets going it just keeps giving. It did get a bit stronger than I like toward the bottom of the bowl, but the flavour was definitely still there amidst that slightly harsher smoke. In all honesty, this is in my humble opinion a great blend that I really enjoy - more than most aromatics I've tried. Read Less

I really like this one. The virginias are sweet, smooth and well rounded. It does have a casing or topping of some sort, smells like butterscotch in the jar, but doesn't come through except for a sweet flavor in the smoke (which is nice). Not overpow...

Great, reliable smoke. Cool burning by folding or rubbed. Nice hint of vanilla, with a bit of virginia tang off and on. No casing detected, very clean burn. Definately in my weekly rotation!

Burns hot and is strongly cased.The appearance of the flake is beautiful,but the casing over rides any natural tobacco flavor imo.Will also ghost your pipe so be careful. This is most certainly an areo. I'll stick with the navy or bullseye flake.

I haven’t got any idea about the slight vanilla scent often detected by not a few tobacco connoisseurs; whether it comes from a mute additive or the Cavendish makes the scent very much close to that of vanilla.
LTF does not bite my tongue. Lights well. Burns well. The slight sweet vanilla fragrance matches the subtly tingling tastes that the mellow VA gives.
It is so far the best tobacco I smoke in the public places ( where, of course, smoking is not inhibited ), with the others around me, smokers or / and non-smokers.
I put 4 stars in 5 scales. The one missing star is for the untold-origin of the vanilla-like note. Read Less
