The tobacco is pressed into blocks and stored for minimum 30 days before they are cut into flakes. Finally the flakes are hand packed to protect the tobacco from breaking up.
The flake is manufactured from Virginias out of 2 continents. Both bright yellow and a darker Virginia have been used combined with a Modern Cavendish. To secure a soft and smooth smoke with a touch of Burley has been added. This flake gives you the natural sweetness from the Virginia tobaccos combined with a slightly detectible topping of sweet, ripe fruit. Furthermore your surroundings will appreciate the pleasant room note.
Flake tobacco is not intended for a quick pipe smoke; it has been created for conscious enjoyment. Simply the process of correctly filling your pipe with this exquisite tobacco raises your expectations - and Virginia Flake certainly realises them.
