Very unique flavor. Lights pretty
Very unique flavor. Lights pretty well without drying. I had some Peterson's Deluxe Navy Rolls that was getting a bit dry. I mixed it 50/50 with the Newminster. Lit perfectly, smoked great throughout the bowl. What a treat. Love this mixture. I'll be doing this smoke a lot more.

An Enjoyable All Day Smoke
As a lover of flake tobaccos, I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of Newminster 400 Superior Navy Flake. The aroma reminds me of a pineapple upside down cake, and when I lit the first bowl, the moisture content seemed just right. After several bowls I notice no harshness or tongue bite. Definitely on the mild side, but very easy to smoke and a nice round taste. I'll be ordering more.

Fantastic Deep Virginia Flake
It doesn't get as much love as Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake, but if you're into deep, bready, and savory Virginia profiles, it's really hard to beat this stuff. Fairly dark when it arrives, and a longer flake than normal, you can smell this stuff before you even open the packaging. It smells like the best bakery filled with sweet bread and sourdough. Usually cut the flakes in half for storing in a jar, and prefer to rub out the flake before filling the pipe.

I enjoy it for a change as I strongly prefer pressed cavendish. My personal preference is Peter Stokkebye Luxury Twist Flake. However, this is a very close second.

This is one of my
This is one of my favorite morning, and or every day tobaccos. I buy with the intention to age for 2 to 3 years before smoking, which allows it time to build some amazing sweetness and flavor. Do yourself a favor and buy 8+ ounces to age for a rainy day. When you do get ready to smoke it let the jar sit open for several hours so that it can dry out a little before smoking otherwise it will leave you with some tongue bite.

Tongue Torcher Torture
I received this in a bag, then moved it to an empty tin, and the notes come across differently for the bag and tin. In the bag, my impression was that this flake was treated heavily with propylene glycol. After moving to the tin, I'm no longer struck with this smell. The tin note is honey, hay, leather and a hint of tea. Flakes are large and fall apart easily, and can be stuffed directly into the bowl. After smoking several bowls of this, I can report tongue bite is a serious finding. You'll want to take slow puffs and manage the heat as well as sipping a beverage constantly and moving the pipe around so smoke doesn't touch the same point on the tongue throughout the smoke. Bite is much worse in the first half of the bowl. Afterward it mellows and gives the tongue a break. On lighting, a sweet topping is detected: maybe honey, possibly rum, or PG based on initial impression. The topping burns off halfway through the bowl and gives way to more traditional virginia flavors. This is definitely a sweet smoke with a pleasant aftertaste. Because of the bite and initial PG impression that turned me off a bit, I'm giving this 2.5 stars. I don't think I will purchase again. If bite were not so intense, this would be a solid 3.5 stars. Recommended for tough tongues and long stemmed pipes.

Sweet And Bland
Luxury Navy Flake's poor cousin. But it breaks up easily for loading your bowl and requires no real thought to enjoy it.

A wonderful flake for an all day smoke
I give this five stars for a wonderful tobacco that only gets better with age. But is great fresh as well. Has a great flavor and after taste. Room note is good as well. Tin note smells like old fashioned cookies. I can smoke this all day, no bite at all no matter how hard or fast I puff away, seems to burn fairly cool as well. In my top five.
Customer Testimonials
Upon opening my 'bag', I was immersed in a sweet, pleasurable scent of fruit and freshly baled hay. The fruit note seems to be pineapple. The flake is large and easily worked, due to its healthy moisture content. The flavor is delightful, sweet, VA tobacco. One of my favorite tin notes, but it does diminish over time.

I've been smoking a pipe for several years, and I've tried a lot ... and I mean 'A LOT' of flake from not only P&C, but other vendors as well. As of yet, I still haven't found that semi-perfect flake, and I'm still looking, but this flake is some of the most economical and tasty I've come across in months. I will keep some of this in my cellar for the time being, and see what it tastes like in a few months.
SB of Duncan, OK
This is a great tobacco at a GREAT price. It smokes like a dream now and should be remarkable in 5 plus years. At this price you should consider buying several pounds. You will not be disappointed.
WF of Gulf Breeze, FL
This "discount" Virginia flake tastes every bit as good as the premium tinned Virginias available. Very smooth with just the right amount of natural sweetness. I plan on aging some to see if it gets even better. You can smoke this all day everyday without a problem. Just fold stuff and light. What a great tobacco!
DR of Naples, FL
Virginia tobaccos give me terrible tongue bite but not this one. This is a nice change of pace from my usual burley blends.
WG of GlenBurnie, MD
This review will make it sound bad, but I'm going to keep this blend around. My disappointment is from dashed hopes. I really wanted to make this one my everyday smoke, but I had problems. The smell in the bag is like cotton candy, and it smokes of the same with the addition of tootsie rolls. It's kind of a sugar bomb. I usually fold and stuff, but with this blend it kept finding a way to clog the draft hole, and forget trying it in a large bowled pipe. My best luck was with a straight-stem medium bowl after breaking it up more than I usually do a flake. I could use a cleaner to push it away from the draft. This is a perfect smoke for someone who wants a sweet smoke without having to go to an aromatic.
AH of Kenner, LA
Newminster 400, is a good smoke, not as good as Dunhill flake, or Peter stok's, but a decent smoke. I will jar it and revisit in a month or so and see if there's any change. I like the sweetness of the Va's, newminster is lacking in this department..
WB of Norwood, PA
I bought a few ounces of this stuff to try out recently. I am a rather new pipe smoker and I am still discovering all the flavors that tobacco has to offer. That being said, I've been persistently trying many Virginias, as they best fit my taste, and I find that every time I come back to this flake I love it more and more. The tobacco has a mild, sweet aroma. The sweetness carries over in the smoke, but takes on more of a hay or grass flavor. It is a mild enough flavor to start your day off with, without overpowering your morning coffee. No bite noticeable. I enjoy this one so much that I plan on making a big order soon for the cellar.
DK of Los Lunas, NM
Considering the price, you would expect at least a slightly lower quality product compared to other high end flakes. Not so. This is a darn good flake! If this was entered into a blind taste test, it would easily stack up to the others, and probably even best a few of them. I am so glad I was given a hefty sample from a friend, my next order will include at least a lb. of this stuff. For those who don't know, this tobacco comes in mammoth 5" flakes. Easily 2-3 times what you would expect.
HS of Fayetteville, PA
I have quite a few flake tobaccos in my cellar, all of them more expensive than this Newminster, but it holds its own with all of them. I was amazed at how sweet this tobacco smoked. I cut a flake into 3/4 inch strips and rubbed them out. One of these large flakes was sufficient for two rightly-packed medium sized bowls. The tobacco burned well, the flavor was consistent throughout. The lemony sweetness of a fine, straight-Virginia mixture was perfect for my tastes. I was pleasantly surprised since I was expecting to "get what I paid for"... I got something better. Granted, this is not Escudo or Irish Flake (it lacks their complexity) but sometimes I don't want a complex flavor (I don't want to have to mull the flavors around)... I just want a good, sweet smoke and Superior Navy gives me that. I recommend this tobacco and at this price I recommend you purchase lots for your cellar. :)

Very tasty and perfect for cellaring
NC of Bedford hills, NY
This is a really nice smoke. I pack my pipe using the fold and stuff method and this No 400 lights easily. It has a really nice flavor all the way down the bowl. The price of this tobacco is too good to be true as it outperforms a lot of much more expensive brands.
