    This is hands down my new favorite. I popped a tin last night and have been smoking it ever since. I have to oreder more right away. I noticed online that they've changed the tin shape. My tin is one of the older design rectangular tin. Does anyone know if there have been any changes to it more recently aside from the flat tin design?

    There is a round-shaped 100 gram tin, but I believe that is a ready rubbed version. I love the flake form! It's just a really pleasant, easy-going flake with a nice enough room note.

    from what I understand the mixture is much more heavily cased. I may try it at some point but I LOVE the flake.

    The additional casing would concern me. I think they hit one out of the park with the flake form, but if they went heavier on the casing I don't think I'd like it. It has just enough casing to let you kow it's there, but without ruining the flavor of the tobacco itself. I've heard Erinmore Flake referred to as the "Juicy Fruit of pipe tobacco." I think that is an apt description. Some people have taken issue with that description, but I love Juicy Fruit and I can see where the comparison is coming from. It's just a very pleasant and refreshing pipe tobacco. Uncomplicated, and it requires no focus on nuance or any such thing to enjoy. Inexspensive and realitively easy to find, to boot. I could see it as a strong contender for a desert island smoke.

    Maybe I should pop open the jar of this I have at home. I tried it very early on, but then jarred it up, but I've been thinking about trying it again. Of course, the same could be said for a lot of the tobaccos I've got in my collection :D

    Yeah... I was also almost eating a new tin of Peterson's UF.. I got the the two at the same time.. lol
    The UF lasted a few days longer then the Erinmore Flake.. but was still excellent.
