Orlik Golden Sliced is a blonde Virginia Flake with a touch of Perique. Like all flakes, it comes far moister in the tin than is right for smoking. The reason is that if it were dry enough to smoke, the rubbing out would crumble or fragment it, rather than as is the case with pliably moist flakes rendering a rather nice ribbony texture.
I tend to take the entire tin, once I've cracked the seal, and rub it out. Then dry it to the right moisture level, or ever so slightly moister than that, and dump it in a glas jar for a day or two to let the flavours re-stabilize.
Virginias tend toward nicotine, so one medium-small bowl smoked slow ("sipped") is the perfect way to start the day.
It takes some smokers a while before they can appreciate Virginias. First off, smoke slow. Really slow. It is best if the pipe threatens to go out occasionally. Secondly, let it whisp at you, and enjoy both the grassy fruity fragrance, as well as the tingle of sweetness on the tongue. Thirdly, unlike English blends (Virginia plus Latakia and often Turkish, sometimes also Perique), it is okay if the entire surface doesn't light. Often, enough tobacco will be smoldering that the smoke can progress from that point on quite satisfactorily.
And fourthly, feel free to let it go out if it wants to. Again unlike English blends, it can be re-lit without significant degradation of taste.
Folks who like OGS will probably also like MacBaren's Virginia Flake, Wessex Red Virginia Flake, Wessex Brown Virginia Flake, Samuel Gawith's Golden Glow, and others in that vein. For a bit more oomph, try Samuel Gawith Best Brown, or their St. James Flake. And for oomph overload, experiment gingerly with SG Bracken Flake, 1792 Flake, and Peterson's Irish Flake.
The Rattrays Virginias are also extremely worthwhile: Hal O' The Wynd, Marlin Flake, Old Gowrie, and Brown Clunee.
