To me, this is the most exotic SG tobacco! If you like "soapy" tobaccos, here is the one for you. The smell was a bit shocking to me; it smelled like the "Camay" soap, very perfumed. The color range from light to dark, with light brown dominant. The cut is rather medium, and I find the flakes to be easy to rub out. The taste is almost identical to the pouch aroma, esp. at first. The "perfumy" smell gradually dissipates, without disappearing. This is definitely a tobacco that require exclusive pipes for its use.

This is one of the most perfumed (scented) tobaccos I have ever seen come out of the UK. SG does not offer public information on this one (like the great majority of their tobaccos), as to what it is scented with, because this is part of the "Enterprise secrets". When I first smelled it, I got a confirmed smell of strong perfumed soap. The aroma is mainly that of a combination of spices and other essences. It has a very pleasant room aroma; however, I personally do not like it and I doubt that people who like only natural tobaccos could appreciate it. If you're not one of such people, then you could actually end up liking it.

Again, this is a most definitely flavored (scented) tobacco. It's less perfumy than Flake # 2, though the smell of soap is evident. When I first lit it, it reminded me of Grousemoor Plug, but a lot more flavored. The taste is a combination of salty, sweet and spicy. While it's not my kind of tobacco (who cares!), I expect some people to enjoy it.

Like most SG flakes, this has a very particular pouch aroma; I could compare it to Flake. 7, though the aroma is different. I could say that the smell is "perfumy" and spicy, without being overwhelming so. It's relatively easy to rub out and pack. The colors range from bright to dark. I find that the sweetness and the spiciness go their separate ways: The former is mainly felt on the palate and tongue, while the latter more in the nose and nasal cavity I recommend packing it lightly to obtain a more trouble-free combustion. What I don't appreciate it about it is the fact that it can leave the pipe quite dirty, esp. the shank.

Comment:

While this is a natural Virginia, I find the smell of the unburned tobacco to be almost too sweet! The taste is occasionally bitter, and sometimes sweet and sour, very intriguing taste overtones. I advise you to rub out well and smoke it slowly. For some reason, it reminds me of the OLD Edgeworth Slices! Very nice smell to others.

This is a flake of the highest quality. The taste and aroma are both sweet and spicy. While not the easiest burner, with a bit of attention, you can have it burn so evenly and so slowly. The Virginias used are evidently so mature and of very high quality.

Based on the reciept of Best Brown Flake, but with a addition of a little touch of Burley, and a final scenting, this tobacco becomes one of the favourite all-day smoke.

This nice Tobacco is a special creation of Samuel Gawith: newer a "aromatic" Flake was made in such a fine way... The excellent taste and the good smell dont give the impression to smoke something: the basic taste believes definitely tobacco.

Based on the reciept of Full Virginia Flake, the Chocolate aroma is really delicate, but believes a companion for the smoker until the end of the pipe, without becoming "owerthelming". Compliments to the blenders!!.
