Nice Straight VA

I smoke a lot of McCranie's Red Ribbon and McClelland Christmas Cheer so I thought I would give this a try. Upon cracking open the tin I was greeted with a natural sweetness. I just knew this was going to be right up my alley. It stayed lit very easily and the sweetness lasted all the way down to nice white ash. For a tobacco that is not cased, I was amazed at the sweetness. I have 20 tins in the cellar with more on order. Its easy to tell that this tobacco will do nothing but become even more stellar as time passes.....A cellar must!!!!

Dunhill Flake

Opening the 10 month old sample of Dunhill Flake I had revealed lovely compressed flakes of browns and yellows giving an overall orange cast to the tobacco.  It smelled the way a Virginia flake should, faint citrus odors with hay dominating.  It was very clean felling and the moisture level was just about perfect.  I prefer to rub out my flakes, so this review is based on this blend being fully rubbed out.

An unlit sip brought the familiar Virginia tastes to my lips, and the initial light produced the taste of fresh hay.  The overall taste was of hay, with a nice intermix of sweetness and citrus flavors fading in and out.  This tobacco burned to a clean white ash, and left an oily finish at the back of my mouth.  The room note was acceptable, but not wonderful.

I really love this flake, it has great taste and the nicotine hit is just about right for me.  If you are looking for a straightforward, sweet tasting Virginia flake, this would be a good candidate.  I will definitely be looking forward to how the other tins develop in my cellar.
