    Coming back to my three old pipes after about 5 yr break.
    Tried 'couple samplers but, not really satisfied. Looking for something light, aromatic, maybe flakes.
    This may be simplistic but feeling lucky. Any suggestions for tin flakes or otherwise?
    Don't be shy on suggestions.
    thanks

    Sutliff Academy is lightly aro with a hint of English to it. I think they have a few other "crossovers" but I'm blanking at the moment.
    Christmas Cookie from Boswell is one of their particularly mild offerings. Also their Premium Burley, a pretty nice burley blend.
    Villiger Mid Day was a decent aro that wasn't too sticky if I recall correctly.
    Uhle's 300 is their Perfection Plug Burley with a light honey topping, pretty good there.
    SG Firedance Flake will get you your aro flake, that is quite popular.

    PS LTF might be worth a go, a very lightly aromatic virginia flake.

    McBarens vanilla flake might do the trick. +1 on both the Boswells and Firedance Flake suggestions

    +1 on the Firedance Flake. Great tobacco flavor, with a background of blackberries and brandy, and in a flake. Perfect for what you're asking!

    I would go with Dunhill Flake - even the new blend which is as we all know inferior to the old stuff is a good clean light smoke. I sell it often to new pipe smokers and get plenty of positive feedback.
