A firm favorite for the pipe smoker looking for a medium strength, gentle and slow burning tobacco. Manufactured using hand-stripped flue cured leaf, each cake comprises 7lbs, wrapped with selected prime wrapper leaf. After initial steaming, to achieve a pliable leaf, the "cake" is pressed and cooked for approximately 1-2 hours, sufficient time for the tobacco to develop its characteristic medium brown color and its distinctive nutty aroma which can only come from the combination of prime leaf and the experience and knowledge of the person making the flake. No flavors are added to best brown flake although a sweetener is added to best brown scented. A good, even smoke, with no tongue-bite.
