I bought one tin. Should’ve bought 5 haha
Haven’t cracked my one tin open yet but I think I’m going to love it. Gotta buy more first though. Don’t want to love something and not have any for later.
When I did the math they were roughly $.60/flake. Wish I had bought ten more tins.

Don't listen to some of the oldtimers...AlaskanPiper, ChasingEmbers as well as Jim pour liquid nicotine on their cereal and oatmeal for breakfast and most likely use it as a replacement for soy sauce. This put me on my ass. And I usually tolerate nicotine, for the most part.

Ordinarily chasing' reports he doesn't experience nicotine at all, so if this is getting to his nicotine receptors -- granted in pretty high doses -- take that under advisement. I do fine with some of the sturdier burley blends, but I'm not looking for trouble.

I tried a few bowls and it didnt do much for me in any department. I have 9 tins I will probably be selling in the near future.

Is it really that strong? Strongest I have tasted is Gawith Hoggarth & Co Dark Flake Unscented- which I can tolerate for about 50-55 mins.

PS - Other tobacco which I think is less strong than Dark Flake Unscented: (In no particular order)

1. War Horse Bar
2. Five Brothers
3. Bold Kentucky
4. Old Joe Krantz
5. Samuel Gawith Black XX Twist
