Well, Shane and Jerry
Wax lyrical as you will. I have tried this for the first time today.
One of the best flakes I have encountered in the 20 years of pipes I have under the belt.
Quite honestly one of the best example of good earth Virginias I ... Read Morehave ever experienced.
No highs or lows, but a fantastic setting of the benchmark.
Bready, smooth and a good bit of flavour.
This life in a Virginia.
Get it while you can
Cheers Read Less
Good day, Jerry Germany! I am glad that you enjoyed BVF as much as I had.. it really is a special tobacco! This is a bittersweet moment for me because although I feel it is a flake that deserves more credit, I didn't have the foresight to plan for a ... Read Moreshortage! BVF is perfect straight from the tin. It rubs out effortlessly and takes to the flame with little resistance. It is a creamy and medium-full flavored smoke with dark dried fruit notes and a luscious baked bread aroma. Quite simply, I cannot recall the last time a fresh tin (with no age) impressed me this much. If anyone is interested in the Newsletter Jerry is referring to, we have posted it in our blog. Read Less
Shane Ireland, this is Jerry Germany commanding you, well ok, asking nicely, to post your "Tobacco Dreams" essay of a couple day's newsletters ago about Wessex BVF HERE!! BECAUSE IT'S YOUR FAULT! I may be almost 60 but I'm too young and i... Read Morempressionable to suffer writing like that... that tantalizes, seduces, and otherwise mischievously mesmerizes my money maniacally out of me!!! Everyone, everything this fiend wrote about Wessex BVF is totally true!! It was because of him I just had to order some immediately. Kudos Laudisians, I think it arrived in less than 36 hours and I only paid for the cheapest shipping. I immediately violated that gorgeous tin, sat on the porch with pipe in hand, and entered that sublime singularity just past the event horizon of the vulcanite bit! Live long and prosper! Now I am compelled to mortgage my house yet AGAIN to bring the next semi load of this unimaginably magnificent tobacco HERE!! (To keep your "out of stock" sign up!) Read Less
You get tired of this. It's a little sharp, a little citric, and ages okay. Very distinctive taste, though, and obviously very high quality tobacco. A Virginia lover should try this, especially if you're into MacBaren's Modern Virginia, but want some... Read Morething with a little more depth and panache. Read Less
After a few summers in the cellar this is one I'm really enjoying. The peaks and hollows have melded and the malts have presented well. I reckon the quality will surprise most. A great smooth, robust smoke with a subtleness of flavour that will su... Read Morerprise most. Read Less
This is a good alternative to F & T Special Brown Flake , both made by K & K . Very good use of a matured Virginia , this is real tasty . Good for the evening after a big meal . One of the stronger folded flakes but very well done.
Tin note of a fine plum wine; lights easily and burns slowly to a fine ash; smooth and sweet but not cloying; no bite; a delicate fruity taste unusual in a Virginia flake; no after taste; smokes best in a group 1 or group 2 sized bowl; definitely a ...

I read Shane's dream article and immediately got on the waiting list for more to come in. It arrived and I crumbled some up and stuffed a seasoned Nording. Ugh. It started with a taste like wood and immediately got too hot. I soldiered on and had ... Read Moreto constantly fight the gurgle of water blocking the airway. I spent as much time with pipe cleaners as I did smoking it. I dumped it and cleaned the pipe. To be fair I tried a second bowl in another seasoned pipe, this one a Savinelli. Same thing, no better. I won't smoke the rest of it. I have too many really good tobaccos to bother with this stuff. I think Shane's dream was more due to a too late at night pizza than this stuff. Read Less
