High Quality Tobacco
I am a relatively new pipe smoker, having smoked for less than a year. This was one of the first non-aromatic blends I tried, and it was the first flake tobacco I tried. Let me say I am glad I did. It is now one of my favorites in my still-young cellar. It smells fantastic in the tin, with delicate citrus and grass notes. It took me a few bowls to get the hang of how to pack the pipe with the flake, but now it stays lit well, and it tastes great. I already bought a second tin.

A nice smoke with a bit of sweetness. The tongue bite wasn’t bad at all. Just on the lighting draw when you take in large breaths. It’s straight Virginia with nothing else. This isn’t a 5 star, but I will buy it again.

Perfectly moist flakes that pack a perfect-sized bowl. Very cool-smoking and mellow, with just the hint of perique for flavor. Excellent value. I will be buying this again.

Perfect Flake!!!
This is probably my new go-to everyday/meat n potatoes Tobacco. This provided a experience like I’ve never experienced. Very fresh and grassy. Slight bakery taste to add on to the grass. Not crazy full flavored, not a lot going on, just pure, fresh and amazing Virginia! 10/10

Excellent
Very smooth, no bite or harshness. Didn't expect this from Virginia. Keeps lit as most flake. Great for 1st morning smoke with coffee. Of course, good through rest of day. May be a tad too mild for end of day.

A great tasting great smoking non Aeromatic
I have always liked Dunhill Flake now Peterson Flake. it is sweet, grassy with a hint of fruit, it smokes light, leaves a good room note, and is not overpowering in the nicotine department. This is my all time favorite tobacco. Its not aromatic or flavored, I highly recommend it.

Excellent VaPer, Perique is faint, Virginia is more forward
Excellent VaPer. Perique is in the background and barely noticeable. I would describe it as just being there to add body to it. Room note is good. Of all the tobaccos I've tried this is definitely in my top three but I am not sure how I would order my top three.

Enjoyable especially after just six months....
I just opened the second of five tins I purchased about six months ago. More than half the flakes were perfect mosture level with about five showing signs of drying. Very enjoyable with hints of buttered toast and slight Perique. Near the end of my first tin I tried adding a bit more Perique but this tin tastes great on its own. I prefer PS Luxury Navy Flake perhaps due to it's Rum topping and a more perceptable Perique but I'm glad I have three more tins of OGS that seem to be getting better with time. I like to fully rub out the flakes.

Must-Try for Fans of Virginias
Tangy and delicious, this is a great smoke to have on-hand. It’s easy to break apart and load, and it’s light enough to smoke all day. The flavor is comparable to Stokkebye’s Danish Export in my opinion - albeit a bit tangier, and it’s a bit more expensive. It tastes like it would age nicely though, and the tin does facilitate this, so in that regard it might be a better option than buying bulk regardless of the price. I’ve read that this used to contain perique, and for my taste it could use something extra to tone down the Virginia. That being said, even by itself I enjoyed it.

Excellent value for the price. A bright mild smoke. This is a go to for my once daily evening pipe. If you are new to pipe smoking this is one you should try. Very consistent and always enjoyable.

golden slice a very good smoke
the well known owner of a Danish Tobacco Company liked Golden Slice a lot though it was not made by his company. Its a light colored flake with very subtle notes of honey. Very pleasent smoke

Love it!
I love this stuff. It is a beautiful, bright Virginia tobacco and is as good as the hard to get premium brands at much less money. I have several tins in reserve, and will smoke a bowl of it today!

A nice mild and moderately priced Virginia that's readily available. Light sweet and citrusy flavor with just a hint of Perique. The flakes are easy to rub out or fold and stuff. A consistent blend that can be enjoyed all day.

A must try for Aromatic smokers or Non-aromatic smokers.
A must try for Aromatic smokers or Non-aromatic smokers. Won't be disappointed, plan on keeping this in my rotation. Its medium strength, so for me it's not an all day smoke but I'm sure others have higher tolerance and this would be a great all day smoker.Cant speak for aging the tobacco, I need to buy more at one time. Enjoy :)

First tin but won't be my last!
I'm a new pipe smoker and have been sticking to aromatics, but based on reviews, I decided to give this a shot. Wow! I was very surprised at how much I loved the natural taste of this tobacco. It tasted to my palate like dried hay, but in a pleasant way. I did notice that on the retrohale, it had a bit of a spiciness to my nose but not too much. What I didn't expect was the nic hit I got from it, and I got a little dizzy, at which point, I stopped. Perhaps I should have eaten prior to smoking it, but I definitely loved it and will smoke it slower the next time, which will definitely be very soon. I'll be ordering more of this without a doubt!

First time trying and I,m a customer for life
OMG Im addicted to sniffing this . amazing citrus notes
3 out of 5
Pleasant but not very complex
A very nice blend. Burns smoothly, no bite. Your definition of a quintessential clean smoke. But it totally lacks complexity and makes for a very boring smoke if you're not quite in the mood for it. It has it's place. It's a nice change of pace from say a heavy Balkan blend.
2 out of 5
To much variance in batches
I had a tin of ogs, first one I ever bought. The flakes were bright yellow and smelled of fresh cut hay and honey. It was delicious I savored every smoke and even put off smoking the last 2 flakes for a time to really enjoy them. Since then I bought 5 tins of 3.5oz and the flakes were dark brown and too strong for me. I'm so sad these didn't work out. I opened each can hoping that the flakes were light yellow but no.

Orlik Golden Sliced, an old friend
What stops me from 5 stars is this stuff is a strong pressed flake that may be too much for the novice. Its slow burn dictates that you must budget time for it and not rush yourself. Prepare for that.. I love this stuff when I want to get away from the common drugstore blends. With these comments said, try the smaller tin first, making sure you're comfortable in case it's not for you. Thanks! jt

Smooth Virginia flake with a hint of spice, and a kick
Had to try a can of Orlik Golden Sliced after reading all the reviews. It's as advertised: smooth sweet Virginia with just a touch of Perique. Smells grassy in the can. Smooth toasted Virginia taste. I do not get any of the citrus/orange it's supposed to have. I tried folding and stuffing it first. Then rubbed. Settled for cutting the sheets in thirds and a quick rub which gave me nice ribbons. Burns clean with almost no ash. Higher in nicotine than most brands I've tried.

another great product
great tobacco great taste a very light vaper good moisture very slow burning and has an orange citrus tastr along with a little bit of spice

Wonderful tobacco
This is the first tin of Orlik I’ve had, and man let me tell you I couldn’t be happier. Never had a VaPer before. I get that grassy/ sweet taste upon initial draw and then a spicy peppery finish that’s not too overpowering. Love this!
4 out of 5
Tasty!
It is a very sweet blend and good for switching over from aromatics to non. However, its has Virginias so it will burn hotter. Slow and steady!

My favorite tobacco
I've tried numerous tobaccos, but I keep going back to this one. Love the flavor and the smell. The only negative is that it seems to burn pretty hot, but that could be my fault.

Simply Awesome
I'm not giving you another wine commercial. So I'll put it bluntly:: Golden Slice is my absolute favorite tin. Every day! Simple, smooth, neither harsh nor mild -- and consistently good. Tart sweet and spicy -- all at the same time. It's my morning wakeup with a pot of coffee. After lunch. And even after dinner. I wish I could get it in bulk.

Top Choice
I have tried several flakes with Perique and settled on Orlik Golden Sliced. Just enough Perique without being overbearing. Not an everyday blend for me but when I want that VP taste Golden Sliced rises to the top.
3 out of 5
Golden sliced
Let me start by saying that the perique is very very light so if you are afraid of the spice dont be but if you are looking for a perique power house look else where. It is one of the virginia flakes standard for a reason and one reason mostly because its reliable or boring for some people. One dimension sweet naturally sweet blend. May be overrated some times to be honest though. I assume it age well so thats an added plus but fresh not very unique. Intasted better flakes but some times you want that reliable taste every now and then. Some it slow as it tend to burn hot if abused. Room note is of hay,cig scent. Not overwhelming but not pleasent either. Al janabi

Grassy and subtle at first and then amazing over time. I can’t wait to age a tin for a decade.

Best Flake
Still searching for a bulk flake that matches Dunhill Flake. For pure taste nothing matches what Dunhill Flake brings. Never a bad bowl or worrying about consistency. Simply the best that I have tried.

Another Great Smoke
This flake is as one would expect from Dunhill. Easy to rub out leaving uniform threads, packs well lights easy, burns evenly leaving a light gray ash.

Fantastic
I love this tobacco. I'm a cigar smoker so I keep getting English blends pushed on me. I'm not a big fan of those. I"m very happy i tried this Virginia. Tastes like sun warmed hay in summer. No bite, smokes a little hot and nicotine won't make itself known.

Awesome. Will be buying more
First tin of Orlik Golden Sliced. Very enjoyable. Tin aroma is bright and sweet. Maybe a bit reminicent of raisin bread. Pleasant toasty smoke. I personally have been enjoying it best on cool autumn evenings. Flakes from tin came clumped together in a big lump rather than defined individual flakes. Didn't really bother me because I prefer to rub out my flakes before packing anyway, but if you prefer to fold and stuff, you may find it a little difficult. Other than that 5/5. Will definitely be buying more.

I have always enjoyed Orlik Golden Sliced. Smooth, very little tongue bite. A pleasant pipe each time. Just keep it from drying out.
5 out of 5
FANTASTIC, BUT NEEDS AGE!
This is a great blend if (and only if) you do something similar to the following: (1) pop tin, (2) immediately put into airtight, half-pint mason jar (Ball "collection elite" jars work best as this flake is wide), (3) make sure no tobacco is on rim of jar and screw lid on firmly (do not heat, boil, seal, etc.), (4) age in the dark at room temp. for AT LEAST 3 months, preferably six or more, and finally (5) before consuming allow to dry as necessary before consuming. If you do not expose to air and age, this tastes like garbage and smokes inferno hot. If you do age, the reward will be great.
5 out of 5
Would Recommend
Really good, I quite enjoyed it. Probably my favorite at the moment. It was sweet, but naturally so, not from goopy casings. Burned well with very few relights (maybe one for me). What's not to love?

My "go to" standard.
I recently returned to pipe smoking after many years smoking only cigars and am in the process of trying out a number of different pipe tobaccos. Dunhill Flake is my "go to" standard for comparison: the taste and aroma of high quality clean, pure, unadulterated Virginia tobacco. Any tobacco that can't meet or beat it for shear smoking pleasure gets left behind. So far, very few others have made the grade.
5 out of 5
Amazing!
I'm a huge fan of Flakes. Mostly Va/Per, but really any VA flake. This tobacco is by far the sweetest VA Flake I've ever smoked. It is almost as if there is a topping but from what I've read there is not? Either way. Super strong. Very well behaved. They say it's a must for any VA flake lover and I hesitated buying this. But will keep in my rotation for sure!

Fresh and sweet - king of the Virginias
Represents everything that is great about bright Virginia leaf. Zesty but not bite-y, sweet but not cloying. Creates rich, white, satisfying smoke. It offers that outdoorsy hay-and-grass note that stands alone and needs no Perique, Latakia, or orientals to give it character. It is the best representation of that "lemon tea" taste experience of any tobacco I have tried. When Dunhill exits the market, this is one product that I will sorely miss. There are others that come close, like Orlik Golden Sliced, but Dunhill Flake is the king of the Virginias, hands-down.
5 out of 5
OGS is an OG
Orlik GS was my intro to Virginia flake. Granted, it is a VaPer, but the perique cannot be detected. Rather, it lifts the crisp Virginia and keeps it boyant so the smoke stays subtle, but never one-dimensional. I'm currently on the search for my ideal VaPer/Virginia. This is the tobacco that started it all for me. I may end my quest where I started; OGS is just that good. Never harsh, perfectly balanced
5 out of 5
One of my favs
Very good smoke, lights easily and stays lit well. The moisture content is perfect, ready to smoke. and the flavor is sweet and grassy, this is a great blend
5 out of 5
The best of all-Virginia tobaccos
One of my absolute favorites smokes. Tastes sweet, fresh, and outdoorsy. No bite, clean ash. I'm in a panic because I heard a rumor that Dunhill won't be offering pipe tobacco much longer!

Wonderful tin goodness
I used to smoke aromatics when I was young, stopped smoking pipes and now I'm back again. Started with My mix 965, which I love, then I decided to give VaPer's a try. Why in god's name did I not try golden sliced before?! Don't get me wrong I love a latakia strong English, but now I'm beginning to question it. Pretty sure I started going slack on the first puff, absolutely fantastic!

Great Mild Virginia
This is a very good beginner "mild" Virginia blend. You can tell that the tobacco is of a high quality. Good, clean tobacco, hay-like flavors with just a slight sweetness on the finish. I did not give 5-stars because I did not get any Perique notes from this blend period........ but that's just me. If you are looking for strength, it's not here. But if you need a break from a blend and a pleasant palate cleanser, this is worth the try.
4 out of 5
Great Intro Virginia!!!
This is a good starter Virginia. It has all of the characteristics of quality tobacco that has been processed at a minimum. It will give the typical grass-like tones with a light natural sweetness. I did not taste any perique, however, I usually smoke stronger tobaccos - maybe my mouth has lost nuanced detection. That being said, I did not give it a five because I thought it was a little too mild! If you are going to advertise perique, at least let me have a little spice. I got none out of this particular tin.
4 out of 5
A good, smooth smoke
I liked this one. It's moist which makes it easy to fold. I found it smooth with just a bit of a tang to it. It burns slowly and well and so is a good long smoke. Will definitely order more (my wife gave me this as a Christmas gift) and will try other blends by Orlik.
5 out of 5
Delicious Virginia goodness
A delicious, sweet Virginia flake. The flavor develops nicely as the bowl progresses
3 out of 5
Bring back the ROUND Tins
This used to be a great Virginian flake (with a touch of Perique) smooth, buttery with natural sweetness & luscious full mouth feel. The flakes were perfectly cut for folding and struggling. The only reason to get a flake tobacco IMO. However, the new packaging in rectangular tins, as opposed to the previous round tins, have all but ruined it. The flakes are no longer distinct individual pieces. They now run together and crumble when I try to remove the flavors, making it hard to impossible to get uniform pieces for folding and struggling, thus ruining the flake smoking experience. Please bring back the ROUND TINS!!

Orlik Golden Sliced - Good "pure" Virginia flake
I am experimenting away from topped and cavendish blends, and I wanted a good pure tobacco smoke. I was also wanting to experience a sliced flake. This fit the bill on both counts. And has been a great success. Really good, smooth, tasty smoke. A little on the mild side, but that is fine with me. Moisture content out of the can was perfect. I have done both the fold method and the rubbed method with this flake. Both have worked well for me. If you are looking to try a "pure" smoke with not toppings or add-ons, or if you are looking to try a flake, give it a shot. i think you'll like it. I do.

Great tobacco plain and simple!
Good tobacco plain and simple. Don't expect big wow factor with this one, just a solid simple smoke that delivers good tobacco taste and enjoyment. I can see why so many like this blend.

Sweet Virginia, an all day smoke, but save it for a time when you can sit down and enjoy it. I prefer it to Dunhill Flake. It is similar to Iwan Ries' Virginia Slices, and I have mixed the two with good results.

Quality tobacco regardless of whether I liked it.
Fresh and well packed. I really wanted to like this due to the recommendations. But I think it just isn't my cup of tea. Seemed hot and harsh. I am a total newbie so that may be the issue. I also got some Dunhill Nightcap which i liked much better.

I found this to be very mild and enjoyable. This could easily be an everyday smoke. I did not notice any tongue bite. The flakes had the perfect amount of moisture and they burned very well and evenly. Don't hesitate to buy this tin, you will find yourself ordering more for the cellar.

Surprisingly Good!
I've tried quite a few flakes, but this one is in my top three. It's a Virginia. That's it. I don't detect a topping. Just a nice smooth Virginia flake. No perique, no rum flavor, just Virginias, and some very smooth Virginias at that. Mildly sweet, with a hay-like smell from the tin. Let a few flakes sit out for a bit to dry, then pack it up, whichever way you choose. I will definitely be ordering some more of this one for sure!

Like Tobacco Gold
Dunhill Flake is so good I don't want to open the stored tins of it I have, desiring to save them all, like gold.

For another type of palate
I purchased Orlik Golden Sliced based upon strong recommendations from some fellas on a social media site for pipe-smoker enthusiasts. It happens to be a standard, "go-to" for many of them. I loved the flake cut, breaking off pieces and rubbing them to load the bowl, and it does have a very pleasant tin smell. It also is not so strong that a part-timer like myself can't smoke it in back-to-back sessions. I still prefer MacBaren's Virginia No. 1, as I find it to have more flavor, more body and a more pronounced 'sweetness' but the Orlik flake is obviously top notch and will remain in my regular rotation.

My favorite tobacco
Dunhill Flake has been my favorite tobacco since I started smoking a pipe five years ago and has never been knocked off the perch despite several tins of other blends that have followed. DF is a straight Virginia blend with a light topping that seems to amplify the natural sweetness of the Virginias. The Virginia has a citrus and grassy sweetness that is really a one of a kind taste. There are some that come close. Capstan Blue comes to mind, but I have yet to find anything to top it.

Consistency
This flake is everything you want in a straight Virgnia. Flavor aroma and taste are what you can expect from Dunhill.

The perique is barely noticeable but it doesn't matter. It is a great tasting flake and there is a reason its a classic.
More full virginia than va/per but tasty

One of my favorites
Great blend perfect all day smoke. The room note can be tough on others who don't smoke. This blend is why I love Virginias.

A very good smoke
Light,sweet with a bit of perique bite if you smoke it to fast. This will be my go to when I'm tired of the English blends I favor.

My Favorite Virginia Flake
I remember meeting Peter Stokkibye and finding this to be his favorite blend. If someone asked me what I now prefer it would be Orlik's Golden sliced. It is a true tobacco taste Virginia/Perique blend that can be smoked all day. It never varies and I like the idea that I can fold and stuff two flakes for a nice long smoke. Grassy citrus notes are there but never any bite.Very high grade Virginia leaf at an affordable price. I like the small tin packaging better than the larger round tin since the flakes are easier to handle than the "hayroll" of the larger tin. This has even surpassed FVF from Sam Gawith for me.

The Very Best VaPer I Have Ever Smoked.
I tried this because I heard all the rave reviews about it. The only other VaPer I had ever tried was Viprati, and I thought it was horrible (one person's junk is another's treasure...). Opening the tin, I was greeted by a wonderful, citrus-y, hay-like aroma, and the Yellow Virginia really stood out. I rubbed it out and loaded it into my Mr. Brog Scoot pipe. It lit easily and burned well. I have heard people say there is no Perique in this, but I could definitely taste the Perique...not strong, but just about right. A slight spicy-peppery after-taste, like a small pinch of cayenne pepper in gumbo. Enough to be interesting without being assertive. The Virginia was wonderfully tangy and sweet, all at the same time, but not a sugary-sweet. More like Honeysuckle off the vine. Just a natural sweetness that melded with everything else. It had a good medium body, and not too harsh, or too mild (a problem I have with aromatics). I guess the room note was OK, because my wife did not complain. It burned to a nice ash, all the way to the bottom with only one re-light (probably packed it too tight...). Never a bite or gurgle. It left me wanting more.... It will be in my permanent rotation from now on.

Classic flake
This is a high quality and flavorful flake that burns well and is consistent throughout the smoke. I prefer this flake to other quality flakes such as FVF and Capstan.

Good everyday blend.
This is the second tobacco I've tried as a new pipe smoker. First off it's really mild. I'd say around a mild cigar but maybe even a bit milder in flavor than that. The flavor it does have is a rich sweet orange with a bit of a pepper spice. It's mild-medium bodied and gives enough of a kick to relax I just wish the flavor was a bit more there. Didn't notice any tongue bite and I tend to be a faster smoker. Good room note, good for beginners, probably gonna look for something with a bit more flavor though.

My first venture into non-aromatics!
I've only smoked aromatics but recently wanted to try something a little "more". Not too much because I can suffer from nicotine dizziness fairly easily. I saw a Youtube video on the "Stuff & Things" channel and Bradley stated that this was his first tobacco that wasn't an aromatic and, for the first time, he really enjoyed smoking his pipe. So I thought I'd give it a shot. I ordered a tin from P&C and waited patiently. When the tin arrived, I immediately opened it and inhaled deeply. "Wow," I thought, "this smells great!" I took out one of the flakes, rubbed it out, and loaded my Peterson Deluxe 5s System Pipe I got this last Christmas. I smoked that first bowl slowly to make certain I didn't get any of nicotine dizziness. It burned evenly without any tongue bite. All-in-all, it was a very smooth, mellow, smoke. While I can't yet detect any of the subtleties that other have but I can testify to the Perique as there's definitely a pepper spice in the nostril and mouth. I'm not sure what it is, but I keep coming back to this tobacco. Because of it, I've ordered some mild English blends to see if I like those, too.

Lives up to the hype.
This tobacco is a classic for a reason. Should be every pipers first departure from aromatics. Super mellow and mild flavor. Smoked cool and sweet with a really nice room note.

I'm a relatively new smoker but this stuff is definitely a tasty treat.

3Nuns
I smoked 3 Nuns for many years, and then they stopped making it. I was very happy when they came out with 3 Nuns again, but it isn't the same. Don't like it. I like Dunhill Flake, but not as well as 3 Nuns made in Scotland.

great with everything
Can smoke this all day long, goes great with coffee, beer, scotch, soda...... i think you get the idea. Comes ready to smoke right out of the tin no drying time needed at all. Best bang for your buck as far as i am concerned. great smoke in the morning, afternoon or night.

Excellent
Very happy with pipesandcigar as well,as the product they send.fast shipping ,good prices,easy to use web site. As far as the tobacco I think it's very similar to the or kin golden slice,hard to tel the difference, both great smokes out of the tin can .

The Benchmark
I’ve tried a good many straight Virginia tobaccos and have liked most of them. My two favorites are Capstan (Blue) and Dunhill Flake. Of the two, the Dunhill gets my highest rating. Smoking a bowl of Dunhill Flake is one of the classic pipe smoking experiences. The blend of Virginias in it deliver all the aspects of that leaf, but without going overboard. There’s some hay there, some citrus, some sweetness, but no over emphasis on any of these. What you get is a clean, high quality Virginia that smokes cool and satisfyingly. It says clearly, “you are smoking the Benchmark Virginia blend.”

First time Virginia smoker
I'm a new pipe smoker, and typically prefer aromatics. I wanted to try a Virginia Flake and went with Orlik Golden sliced based on reviews. I have to say that most user reviews of tobacco on P&C are accurate. This tobacco is beautifully prepared into symetrical flakes, rub out easily (if you prefer), and burn slow and cool. My preferred method is a combo of roll/fold to acquire a richer smoke that is a nice break from the heavily cases blends I typicaly reach for. Very little to no tounge bite, smooth, slight hints of citrus hay, very easy smoke.

It wont disappoint
I would like to give it 3 1/2 stars, but it wont let me. A solid, mild VaPer. It smokes cool and sweet. I know some deny the perique, but I can taste it.

Great smokes!! Batman
So if you like Erinmore flake Im pretty sure you will like this( made by the same company) I do the fold and stuff method which works fine. It has just a touch of perique like it says but exhale through the nose and its on like donkey kong! I will surely keep this as a regular in my rotation. love it!

The champagne of Virginia flakes
The tin note is figs and white grapes. This fine Virginia has an almost wine-like flavor. Rich Dunhill, the sweet and subtle Capstans, and the earthier Samuel Gawith Best Brown are to my palate the Three (or four) Bears of Virginia flake; one among them is bound to be just right.

Great smoke
I am sitting here delightedly puffing on my first ever flake in a Grabow grand duke. Though I knew it might be a risky rookie move I chose to fold and stuff. I would say my need to relight has been less than I do on ribbon cuts, apparently this flake and I have an understanding that I just can't get the ribbons on board with. When I first lit it I got about 6 puffs out of the charring light and then my daughter needed something. So it took me a few hours to get back and relight. I spent those hours craving this light citrus and hay taste that I had just begun to experience. This is an automatic favorite for me.

Amazing!
Top notch Va Flake. The range of flavor is from grass to lemon. Plummy tin note should not discourage, the taste is unaffected. Burns smooth with no bite. Perfect for those looking to venture in to strait VA's.

I have tried a few flake tobaccos, and they have all given me a bit of trouble burning, an they all seemed carry along some gnarly tongue bit. Orlik Golden Sliced is one of my favorite summer smokes. It burns perfect, taste great, and never bites! I like to accompany this smoke with a wheat beer.

Should have tried this one sooner. It's good.
Very pleasant tobacco flavor with a little something else, citrus? floral? I'm no expert in describing flavors but this one is a winner. This is going to be a favorite.

Orlik Golden Sliced
A very distinguished Virginia flake in the best old English style. For those that dislike Perique (are there such?)the perique flavor is evanescent. A golden Virginia flake still made in the old tradition, I do not remember smoking it in my early days in England. Scandinavian Tobacco's version should hit the spot for those like me that love Virginia flake. I give it 8/10.
