St. James Flake starts with sweet, bright Virginias and a nice share of genuine Acadian Perique which are matured under pressure. The flavor is highlighted by sweet grassy notes and some toastiness, with an undercurrent of dark fruit and spice. Now is your chance to stock up on Samuel Gawith's St. James Flake while supplies last.
This is one of my fav VaPer's. The "tin" (bag) note is sweet, maybe chocolatey. I have to dry this. My method is to microwave 1 bowlful for 15 seconds. After that, upon lighting, it tastes great. Sweet, grassy VA on the tongue, and a slight tingle on the nostrils when snorking. Very smooth and enjoyable. I tend to sip/puff slowly and I've never been bit by this. Highly recommend!
Bag note is of dark stewed fruit and chocolate. Rolls up nicely, great moisture content after 20 minute dry time. Will cube cut or rub out nicely. Takes a bit to light initially. First flavors are of a soapy grassy nature, not at all pleasing. After the first few puffs, the Virginias shine through and the perique makes it's presence known when exhaled through the nose. Sweet and potent flavors of figs, chocolate, lemon and some dark fruit. Matches the smell exquisitely. I will buy more and cellar it. This will age very well.
