Cornell & Diehl Black Frigate
Cornell & Diehl took the concept of a navy flake and turned it on its ear with their uber-popular Black Frigate, The begin with, it's a crumble cake, not a flake. Next, it contains a good amount of Latakia, and there's also some Turkish tobaccos in the mix. The most traditional part is the Virginia that's been imbued with rum. The result is a hearty blend that's rich and smoky with a hint of sweetness and tang from the rum, and some earthiness from the Turkish. If you want a "think outside the box" navy flake, C&D's Black Frigate might be what you're looking for.
