MacB VA Flake is a simple VA flake toby that appears to MacB's answer to OGS, Erinmore, or GAF. It comes in a yellow and white tin, wit a gold foil inner wrapper. The flakes are uniform in shape, have a beautiful golden brown hue, and a very pleasant lemon-hay tin note. Given about minutes or so to dry, they rub out very nicely, and they are perfect for the fold and stuff method. The light easily, stay lighted all the way down, and I think they smoke equally well in either a cob or a briar. The room note is pure toby, not offensive but not all that pleasant either, and the flavor is a nice mellow Virginia - you know, a delicate hay-like flavor. All-in-all, a pleasant smoke. And a pleasant smoke is as far as it goes. I've smoked a tiin of this now, and I've found nothing particularly noteworthy about it. It costs about the same as either OGS or Erinmore, but I don't think it's as good as either. I haven't had the pleasure of trying GAF, but if half the reviews be true than MacB VA Flake sure isn't going to stack up against GAF either. It's not a bad smoke, and I can see how a person would want to cellar it but onl for one reason - it can be bought in bulk at about $35 a pound from Mars Cigar, which has the best price that I've found for it. However, with so many notably better flake tobies for the same price or better, bulk or tin, I don't see the advantage in this. However, your mileage may vary. At least give it a try because it's not bad. Unfortunately, it's not much more than mediocre either.
