    My rotation splits into two. Pipes for English And Balkan tobaccos and pipes for Virginia based tobaccos. Where do I smoke a rum flake?

    In a Mississippi Meerschaum - the rum flavour and sweetness really come out and you don't ghost a briar.

    I kinda agree. Are start an aromatic only pipe. Rum Flake will ghost forever and a day....almost.

    Use a cob, save a briar. I do a lot of that.

    I have a rum specific pipe. Because I like rum and briar. A lot. I don't like most aromatics, but I like Navy Flakes and the like that have the rum.

    Case closed thanks guys. I have never smoked an aromatic. I will use a cob and if I like it dedicate a briar, it was a bulk flake from a great tobacconist in Aberystwyth, also picked up Dunhill Navy rolls, London mixture and H and H vintage Syrian which is amazing.

    Rum doesn't always equal aromatic.

    You may like it so much that ya want it to ghost a briar. I have many pipes dedicated to the Lakeland genre, Rum Flake is very, very light in that department. It's a great smoke. Try Scotch Glake too!

    Edit* I assumed you were talking about GH&Co Rum Flake... looks like I assumed wrong.
