I had my first St James Flake last week and loved it. I have a tin each of the Full Virginia Flake and 1792 Flake waiting to be tried. Really looking forward to them.

Nice score!

I’m looking forward to your impressions of Best Brown which I consider a fine example of that style.

1792 is rubbish and don’t like full virginia Flake.
Both a waste of my money and at £15 approx I can’t afford experimenting.
The best is SG Kendal Black or Brown Sliced Twist Aromatic, in bulk.
Smoking some Nightcap OK but won’t buy it again.

Skiff is a bit stronger than SL. There is less of a nicotine hit in SL, while a bit harder hit in Skiff.

Both GREAT blends IMHO. I haven't had a Sam Gawith I haven't like yet. I will keep trying though :)

I have recently opened a tin of fvf and found it okay. I need to spend more time with it. I have a sealed tin of navy flake waiting for me also

I love the different opinions. At $25/tin this was not a cheap experiment, but given the reputation of SG I was willing to roll the dice. I suspect there will be some 250g purchases in the future for a few of these.

Cracking open the Best Brown now to see if it needs some drying time while I prep the grill.

The firedance flake is decent but I agree that it will linger in a pipe after a few smokes. I mix it with lane edgeworth ready rubbed match and enjoy it quite a bit
