    Hi everyone,

    I got a few weeks back some bulk Kendal flake. Once i got it I switched the flakes to a jar and left it for a few weeks. I decided to try one tonight.

    I loaded half a flake into my peterson meer cannon ball style and left it to dry out for 45 minutes.
    All i have to say is YUK, probably the worst tobby ive ever tried. I think my hands smell of roses now lol.

    I wanted to try this because of the said almond but i didnt taste or smell any almonds just hand soap.
    I do have to give some props to the company for delivering flavor while puffing. Not allot of tobbys really deliver large amounts of flavor and this delivers. Its not good but it delivers lol.

    It's a strange one for me. Sometimes I get plenty of that lakeland taste which I like, other times it's just blah. Have 1/2lb on hand though. :)

    I enjoy this one a lot. I can see how it is not for everyone.
