    I just came in after a sveet morning pipe. Maybe a little strong, but sveet. :)
    Sitting in my balcony, and looking the snow walls, dreaming for the motorcycle
    tours of next summer! ****, too much snow still. :(

    No snow over here yet Kari!, but still not nice enough to tempt me onto the old FJ1200!. The Full Virginia Flake is excellent, but I usually opt for SG 'Best Brown' - to me, not a lot different, and often easier to obtain!.

    Ted, how does FVF compare to MVF (Golden Glow)?

    They're both great - I didn't think I was a straight-VA fan until I discovered those two. I like the slight earthiness of BBF. 'Golden Glow', otoh, is tasteless rubbish, based on my experience of one tin (which may not be giving it enough of a trial, but since the other two exist, I can do without it).

    Quite different, if I say so myself. FVF
    is much darker, richer, and in flake form.
    GG is a lot more grassy, and in broken
    flake form (or thereabouts). I'm sure the
    N content is more substantial in the FVF.
