I got the opportunity to try MacB Navy Flake last night. I have only tried a couple of other baccy's, so my review will be somewhat limited. Bottom line, I liked it. Being my first tin of flake, I was a little surprised when I opened the tin. Apparently, I didn't know what flake tobacco looked like. I am pretty certain I did not pack the bowl well, but the tobacco was very forgiving of my lack of ability making me relight only once. The tobacco smoked cool in my pipe, with a very nice flavor, and nice aroma. Hopefully my descriptive abilities will improve as I smoke more. If you have not tried it, I do suggest giving MacB Navy Flake a try.
