    Is anyone familiar with this delightful Virginia/Burley flake? It comes fully rubbed out and ready to smoke. I bought some on a whim and have grown extremely fond of it. Despite the fact that it doesn't get great reviews I can't find anything to complain about. One review said it had somewhat of a honeydew rind flavor. I don't get that at all, just a very mild subtle sweetness and a great aroma. I'm already thinking I should order more. For any that may be familiar with it, could you recommend a similar tobacco? It's unlike any aromatic I've ever smoked. Not goopy at all. In fact, I don't really know if it would be considered an aromatic at all.
    Thanks!

    I like Orlik Golden Sliced. It stays good to the bottom of the bowl.

    I've heard nothing but good about it. I think it's time I placed an order!

    If your reading reviews at tobaccoreviews.com take them with a grain of salt, over the years I have found them way off base to my tastes in tobacco, as a matter of fact, I tend to like most of the tobaccos that get poor reviews and not like the ones that get the 3 and 4 star reviews. If you enjoy that blend invest in it and keep on enjoying it would be my advice. ;)
