    I'm looking for some good aro's that come in flake form as a gift for someone. This person likes a good mild smoke. Any suggestions?

    Or Ennerdale. I have to wait for the big brown truck to bring me some Glengarry. Or, for a more US-style aro done British Lakeland way, try GH Scotch Flake Aromatic.

    +1 to MacB Vanilla Flake

    Might also want to consider LTF which is very lightly aromatic, Or MacB Club Blend which despite being a rollcake (discs instead of flakes) is a great danish-style aromatic

    It's interesting stuff. VA/Burley with a pinch of Lat and a coffee casing. Thick flakes. A bit too thick to fold. Amazing pouch note. I'm out otherwise I'd mail you some. Worth a try.

    K love when someone else smokes this stuff. It is a pleasant smoke to me when I smoke it, but when I get a buddy to smoke it I am a happy camper...the room note is edible.
