    hey guys hope your well.

    so a good few months back i got me some louisiana flake and i had a few bowls out of it, loved it (its been one of my favourites since i started), and it was sat a good couple of months, then before christmas i got my trade of snake and it included some irish oak, loved the stuff and the louisiana flake kind of took a back seat, anyways on friday i finished the irish oak and today cracked that tub of louisiana flake back open.

    And oh boy what a smoke it is now the flavours have got a touch more intense and is as smooth as silk, im savouring every draw and trying to make it last as long as possible, this stuff is the dogs proverbials.

    armed weith this new discovery i was going to take my tin of gl pease filmore away with me not now, if that stuff ages half as good as the louisiana flake then its going to blow my mind.

    happy days and happy smoking to you all

    Yeah, that's one of my favorites, even while Fillmore is probably the only GLP blend I cannot smoke. Interesting. The two blends could not be more different. Glad you're enjoying - it's a fantastic tobacco.

    I have 12 oz stashed now, and 4 oz in the current rotation. Maybe I should just set it aside for a few months. I do have plenty open. :D

    Much more perique in the Fillmore but that isn't the problem for me. At least, I don't think it is, as I smoke a lot of perique-heavy blends. Fillmore is just really harsh for me. Telegraph Hill is my GLP vaper of choice.
